For a man who has ventured into nearly every type of media, there is still one medium he won’t step into: reality television.
Kanye West, 36, reportedly offered Jay Z, 44, the role of Best Man at his upcoming, hotly anticipated wedding – but is ‘now also refusing the honour’, the Daily Star reports.
A close Kardashian friend divulged to Daily Star that Jay Z would only be Best Man under one condition: that he, his wife Beyonce, 32, and daughter Blue Ivy wouldn’t be 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,’ the source shared.
Apparently reality television is far below the multi-talented crooner’s standards, as the crooner tries to avoid being associated with the medium, Daily Star reported.
‘She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion,’ the source explained.
The new mother spoke with Ryan Seacrest in February about her upcoming nuptials, revealing her wish for a much smaller affair than people are likely to expect, especially considering her lavish nuptials in 2011 that were highly publicized.
‘As we are going along, we realize we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking,’ the reality star divulged.
In spite of this, the duo still appear to maintain a close business partnership.
West’s creative house, Donda, recently partnered with Jay Z’s Roc Nation, a collaboration that will focus on West’s music brand and touring ventures, according to a press release issued on Monday by Roc Nation.
