Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly ending their friendships with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. The singer and her husband — both of whom are active Democrats — are sick and tired of West’s political affiliations and are “completely done” with the couple.
Jay Z and Beyoncé supported Hillary Clinton in the latest presidential election and cannot stand how West is loyal to Donald Trump.
“They are outraged over Kanye’s recent political rants,” a source claims. While West and Kardashian have tried for years to befriend Jay-Z and Beyoncé, the pair don’t want anything to do with them.

According to Radar Online, the final straw was West’s guest appearance on SNL last weekend and Kardashian’s trip to visit Trump at the White House to chat about reforming prisons.
Jay Z and Beyoncé believe West is only siding with Trump for attention and is using it as a platform to get into politics. Given how West will likely enter the political arena as a Republican, the singing duo do not want any association with them.
West and Jay Z used to be good friends. That all changed in 2016 when West slammed Jay Z during one of his concerts. The rapper was going through a mental breakdown at the time, which is why Jay Z forgave him and tried to mend their friendship.

In fact, a few months ago, Beyoncé bought Kardashian and West a $26,000 bracelet for their newborn daughter. Unfortunately, the two are no longer interested in keeping up their friendship in light of West’s political antics.
West, meanwhile, may have finally realized that his Twitter rants are becoming an issue with his friends. The rapper just shut down his social media accounts and is taking a break from the internet. West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and is working hard to regain his mental health.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have not made any public comments about Kanye West or Kim Kardashian.
