Beyonce and Jay Z skipped the Kimye nuptials.
The couple instead opted to stay in the States and enjoy a trip to the Hamptons for the Memorial Day weekend, Us Weekly reports.
While Hov and Kanye West are longtime friends, it was a bit shocking to hear hip-hop’s royal couple decided against attending the European lovefest.
Still, Queen B sent a heartfelt message of congratulations to the newlyweds via Instagram, along with a photo from Kim Kardashian and West’s recent Vogue magazine spread.
“Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love,” she wrote. “God bless your beautiful family.”
Before that, Mrs. Carter posted a makeup-free selfie showing off her new braided hairdo and puckering her lips.
Rumors indicate that the couple ditched plans to attend the “wedding of the year” because Rachel Roy decided to go.
“They weren’t sure about all of the media and it possibly being filmed for the show,” a source told Hollywoodlife.com.
The 40-year-old designer was reportedly one reason for the spat between Solange Knowles and Jay Z that was caught on surveillance tape in an elevator at a Met Gala after-party on May 5.
Beyonce’s younger sister was seen clawing, kicking and slapping her brother-in-law as a bodyguard attempted to hold her back. Reports point to the rapper and Roy getting a little too close at the party, causing Solange to lash out.
“After the fight with Rachel at the Met, they decided to lay low,” the source added. “Bey and Jay are working on their marriage.”
