Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West's bitter feud with rapper Jay-Z reportedly stemmed from his frustration that his wife Kim Kardashian is not close friends with Jay-Z's wife Beyonce Knowles.
According to a source, West was forcing his wife to be friends with Jay-Z and Beyonce so they could have a better relationship, but Beyonce had little in common with her, reports pagesix.com.
This comes amid claims that West's furious rant onstage nine months ago caused the fall-out with Jay-Z.
"(Kanye's) the rant was really about Kim and Beyonce not being best friends. Kanye is frustrated that his wife does not have a better relationship with Beyonce," the source said.
The source added that West wanted to put pressure on Jay-Z to get their wives to be friends.
"Beyonce is a Southern, God-fearing woman, despite what you may see when she's entertaining. She may not have much in common with Kim," the source added.
