Did Beyonce really give Kim Kardashian “the cold shoulder” at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ 50th birthday party? That’s what one of the tabloids is claiming. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

Kanye West and Jay-Z spent the past few years feuding due to a variety of issues, but they were photographed shaking hands and laughing at Combs’ birthday party in Los Angeles earlier this month. TMZ reported that West and Jay-Z have settled their beef, which included a legal battle over royalties from Jay-Z’s streaming service, Tidal. West also famously called out the rapper and his wife, Beyonce, for not attending his 2014 wedding to Kardashian. The two men have put the tension behind them, but according to Life & Style, the same can’t be said for their wives.

An alleged source tells the magazine that Beyonce “ignored Kim the entire night” while celebrating Combs’ birthday. “Jay and Kanye were smiling and laughing like they haven’t spent the past year taking digs at each other,” says the supposed insider. “But I never did see Beyonce and Kim interact. Not even a hello.” The unknown tipster says that unlike their husbands, the two women have no interest in making peace. “Kim was standing off to the side while Beyonce did her own thing.”

The tabloid’s report isn’t accurate. Just days after Diddy’s party, Beyonce and Kardashian both attended a holiday karaoke party hosted by their mutual friend, jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. E! News, a much more reliable source for celebrity scoops than Life & Style, reported that the two women were happy to see each other. The outlet noted, “Beyonce seemed to be in an amazing mood and was seen smiling and saying hello to many people. Kim made her way over to say hello as well.”

The only reason Life & Style came up with this premise is because West and Jay-Z were spotted chatting at Combs’ party, but there haven’t been any photos of their wives interacting. That doesn’t mean Beyonce snubbed Kardashian – it just means the two weren’t caught chatting on camera. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who tells us the tabloid’s article is made up. We’re told there’s no ongoing feud between Beyonce and Kardashian.

Although it doesn’t seem the singer and the reality star are as close as they once were, that doesn’t mean anyone’s being given “the cold shoulder.” Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time that Life & Style has tried to exploit the past tension between the superstar couples. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Kardashian and West were competing with Beyonce and Jay-Z over the size of their respective homes. The publication has no insight into the relationship between the two couples, or where they stand today.
