(Beyonce and Kim hang at Watch the Throne tour)

Despite appearing to be friendly on several occasions this year, it seems that Beyonce and Kim Kardashian aren’t quite BFFs just yet. While both ladies supported their beaus, Jay-Z and Kanye West, at the Made in America festival over the weekend, neither of them made much of an attempt to hang out with one another while in Philly.
“Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other,” a source tells the New York Daily News. “They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn’t even acknowledge [Kardashian] was there until the concert was almost over.”
The chilly reception, the eyewitness adds, went both ways. “[Kardashian] didn’t make any efforts to go speak to Beyonce either,” the source says, adding that Kim mostly hung out with Kanye and her publicist best pal, Jonathan Cheban.
Eventually, however, they “made small talk in the dressing room, but you could tell Kim was uncomfortable. She clung onto Kanye the entire time and didn’t say much,” another source adds. “[Kardashian] was talking to Jonathan, and Kanye was talking to Jay-Z and Beyonce,” the source says. But, Kim was warmer to Jay, who she later congratulated on his big show.
The news of Kim and Bey’s icy relationship comes as a surprise considering that over the course of Kim’s relationship with Yeezy, which kicked off earlier this year, they had been photographed together on several occasions. They were seen hanging out together back in June at a U.K. tour stop of the Watch the Throne trek. And, then both couples sat side by side at the BET Awards in July.
