According to a new Radar Online exclusive, Jay Z is set to act as Kanye West’s best man in the rapper’s upcoming wedding. Radar Online reports that both Beyonce and Jay Z will attend the ceremony per an anonymous source.
The latest news comes after initial reports that Jay Z and Beyonce would not attend the wedding, apparently due to misgivings about being filmed as a part of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Radar Online’s source hinted that the decision to attend may have been a result of negotiations with TV network E! on the part of Kim Kardashian to keep much of the ceremony free of cameras.
Late last week, Kardashian took to her Twitter account to announce that the wedding would not be televised. “1. We are not married yet!” she wrote. “2. We are not filming our wedding for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. You will see everything leading up til and after! As much as we would love to share these memories on camera, we’ve decided to keep this close to our hearts; share thru photos.”
Radar Online’s source also claims that Jay Z gifted a “gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask” with a bottle of Scotch worth $10,000 to the soon-to-be-married West.
Jay Z and Beyonce recently made news when footage of Solange attacking Jay in an elevator surfaced. Rumors behind the altercation include the possibility that Jay Z planned to attend a Rihanna function sans Beyonce following the Met Gala last Monday.
