Kanye West may be breaking up… with Jay Z. Just weeks after Hov was a no-show at Kanye’s wedding to reality starlet Kim Kardashian, Kanye self-edited a couple of songs during a recent performance.
Here’s the situation: Kanye’s performing at the X Games in Austin and decides to drop his longtime collaborator’s name from two songs, “Cold” and “Blood on the Leaves.” Maybe it was just a slip of the tongue but knowing what a perfectionist Kanye is, could the omission be a sign of a bromance on the outs?
Kanye and Jay have worked together for years and, of course, combined their platinum talents for 2011’s Watch the Throne. They’ve long been close but unfortunately, their respective lady loves supposedly don’t get along. Beyoncé may have refused to be a bridesmaid in Kim’s wedding and, whether or not that’s true, we know for a fact neither Hov nor his wife attended Kimye’s nuptials in Florence, instead opting for a weekend in the Hamptons.
Kim’s mama, Kris Jenner, says her daughter’s festive event was so busy “I never really gave [Jay and Bey’s absence] a second thought,” which, if we were feeling snarky, we might take to mean “We don’t need you either.”
