Beyoncé and Jay Z are not changing their minds about attending Kanye West’s wedding ceremony, according to recent reports. Last month, Jay Z reportedly refused to be West’s best man, though they are very good friends.
Jay Z would only do so if he, Beyoncé and their daughter, Blue Ivy, were not caught on camera. “Jay agreed initially but had one condition—under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé, or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony,” a source told DailyStar. “She [Beyoncé] purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
It seems that West is still planning on televising the highly anticipated ceremony, so Jay Z and Beyoncé hope to appease the couple with an extravagant wedding gift. An insider told The Sun paper that the 43-year-old rapper is going to spend nearly $200,000 on a rented yacht for the newlyweds' honeymoon trip. Jay Z will also be arranging a bachelor party for West at one of his 40/40 club locations. 'It will cost a small fortune – and to top it all off, he’s chucked a £100,000 yacht rental in there as a wedding gift as well.,” a source says.
In October, in front of her family and friends, West had a 50-piece orchestra play for his fiancé before asking her to marry him. The couple have been dating since last year, though they have known each other for around a decade. Kardashian was more than happy to say “yes,” later telling E! News, “Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world! I get to marry my best friend!"
