Kanye West and Jay Z: The Friendship is Over!

by at .

Forgetting watching the throne.

According to a new tabloid report, Kanye West and Jay Z won't be going near any thrones together ever again.

Or any recording studios... or any backyard barbecues... or any post-awards show gatherings.

Ye and Jay

Indeed, the once-close friendship between the rappers appears to be over. For good.

“They will never speak again,” an insider tells In Touch Weekly. “It’s over.”

The problems between Mr. Kim Kardashian and Mr. Beyonce are both personal and professional.

A few weeks ago, Kanye reportedly left Jay Z's streaming service Tidal over a money dispute, claiming at the time that he was owed $3 million.

An attorney for the star says Tidal has breached the contract it signed with West, hinting that further legal action may be pursued down the line.

Then, of course, Jay Z dropped a new album (titled 4:44) and escalated his feud with his former BFF to an entirely new level.

In the track "Kill Jay Z," the artist addressed his former collaborator directly... and harshly. 

Jay-Z by Himself

This is what Jay rapped about 'Ye:

But this ‘f--k everybody’ attitude ain’t natural/But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe/But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye/You gave him 20 million without blinkin/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f--k was he thinkin’?

F--k wrong with everybody?' is what you sayin’/But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.

The bond between Jay Z and Kanye goes all the way back to the early 2000s, when Kanye worked as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records.

They most famously and successfully collaborated on 2011's "Watch the Throne," a critically and publicly lauded album.

But West ranted against Beyonce during a concert appearance late last year, just a few days before he checked into a hospital due to a mental breakdown.

Things have been icy between the stars ever since,

Kanye West Almost Smiles

"Beyonce, I was hurt ‘cause I heard you said you wouldn’t be perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over Hotline Bling,’’ Kanye said while on stage at the time, adding:

“Now, don’t go trying to diss Beyonce, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal.

"But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win."

There's been chatter for years that Kardashian does not get along with Beyonce.

Many believe Kim is the cause for the issues between these husbands, while an insider tells In Touch that she wants her man to fire back at Jay Z in his own revenge-themed single.

“[Kim] wants Kanye to record a diss track that will fully rip on Jay and Beyonce and how fake they really are,” a source tells the tabloid.

What about potential backlash?

“She knows that Beyonce’s fans will come after her, but she doesn’t care.”

Shortly after Kanye broke down, Twitter hosted the party referenced and detailed above.

But if West were really willing to come out firing against Hollywood's most powerful couple in a new song?!?

It's safe to say he'd very much be back.
