This is why Jay Z won't attend best friend Kanye West's wedding!

23 April 2014, 06:49

Los Angeles - Jay Z won't be attending Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding.

The rap mogul has reportedly told his close friend that he, wife Beyoncé Knowles, and their two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy will miss the nuptials - which are expected to take place in Paris next month - because they are uneasy about the fact the celebrations will be filmed for the brunette beauty's reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

However, to make things up to the Bound 2 star - who has 10-month-old daughter North with Kim - Jay will throw him a lavish bachelor party at his New York club 40/40, and is also planning to spend £100 000 on the couple's honeymoon as a wedding gift.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jay Z would be there if it wasn't going to be such a public event.

"Instead he's making it up to his mate by throwing him the most extravagant bachelor party known to man.

"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."

It was previously claimed that Kim and Kanye were so keen for Jay and Beyoncé to be at their wedding, they had agreed to exempt the couple from their strict security arrangements.

A source previously said: "There is no way Kanye would ever even dare to ask Jay or Beyoncé to sign a non-disclosure agreement, or take away their cell phones. He knows that neither one of them would betray his trust."
