Rumor has it, two very important celebrity friends were a no-show at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding. Reportedly, Beyonce and Jay Z did not attend the couple’s Florence, Itally wedding Saturday. According to Us Weekly, instead the couple traveled to the Hamptons for the Memorial Day Weekend holiday.
We’ve done some digging and there have been no photos of Beyonce or Jay Z at the wedding ceremony, nor have photos surfaced of them in Hamptons. Saturday afternoon, Beyonce posted a selfie of herself. In the photo, she appears to be relaxing in a bed. Folk suggest that the Instagram post was shared around the same time as the #KimYe wedding.
We’re guessing that there may be a slight possibility that the couple pop-up for the wedding reception, but it doesn’t seem likely at this point. If Jay & Bey did skip their big day, inquiring minds want to know–why?
The street speculation points to a number of unconfirmed reasons why. Earlier this year, sources said that Jay and Bey didn’t want to be filmed and participate in Kim’s E! show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. There have been conflicting reports as to how much of the wedding will be filmed.
Other reports speculate that after the Solange elevator brawl, they didn’t want to attend. Specifically, some point the cause for the elevator spat over designer Rachel Roy, who was in attendance at the #KimYe wedding.

Despite reports that she and her husband were not present, Beyonce posted the photo above, with the caption:
Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family
