2016 hasn’t been the easiest year for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Okay, 2016 hasn’t been an easy year for anyone who doesn’t self-identify as "deplorable," but the last 12 months have been harsh for Kimye in a very public way.
The couple hasn’t officially called it quits yet, but it feels like we all just watched their marriage implode, and now there’s nothing left to do but sign the papers.
First, Kim was robbed at gun point, and Kanye reportedly failed to provide her with the support she needed.
Shortly thereafter, Kanye was hospitalized after suffering an emotional breakdown, and sources say he and Kim have living in separate homes since his release.
Of course, the rapper’s hospitalization was proceeded by weeks of wildly erratic behavior (even his standards) and now both he and Kim are feeling the fallout from all the bridges that he burned.
You may recall that Kanye went off on Jay Z and Beyonce in one of his last onstage performances before he canceled his Saint Pablo Tour:
It now looks as though Kim tried to smooth things over with Jay and Bey in the wake of Kanye’s onstage rant.
But not surprisingly, Beyonce wasn’t having it.
“Beyonce flipped out on Kim when Kim called her to try and soothe tensions after Kanye’s hospitalization,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“Basically she told Kim to never, ever, contact her or her husband again and said stuff like she thought that the two of them are made for each other because they are both talentless and pathetic!”
Dayum. Of course, anyone who’s listened to Lemonade knows that Bey isn’t exactly the type to mince words.
We find it hard to believe she would go off quite that hard on a woman who had recently suffered a traumatic event, as Kim had at the time, but the insider says Bey’s rant was the culmination of year’s of simmering tension:
“Kim was trying so hard to be Beyonce’s friend for so long and she had even asked her on numerous occasions to let Blue Ivy play with North. Beyonce just kept ignoring her,” the source adds.
“When Kim was attacked, Kanye thought it was rude that neither Beyonce nor Jay Z called to see if Kim was doing okay.
“That is the real reason he went off on Jay Z, too."
Apparently, Kim and Kanye realized the error of their ways and tried to use the holiday as an opportunity to make amends.
But Jay and Bey were having none of that:
“They wanted to try one last time to make things better, so they mailed Bey and Jay an invite to the Kardashian’s holiday party.”
“The invite was returned to Kim and Kanye’s house with ‘Return To Sender’ written on the envelope!”
Yes, it seems that once you fall out of Jay and Bey’s good graces, it’s not easy to be welcomed back into the fold.
We’re not surprised. Something tells us these two aren’t desperate for friends.
