Musical artists Beyonce and Jay-Z are reportedly “outraged” over rapper Kanye West’s “political rants” and want “nothing to do” with West and his wife, reality star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian West, because of West’s support for President Trump.
“They think Kanye is a disgrace, and is only doing this for attention,” a source close to Beyonce said, according to a report from RadarOnline.
“Beyonce and Jay-Z know that Kanye is seeing a future in politics, but they feel that they cannot associate themselves with them from this point forward,” the source added. “They want nothing to do with either one of them.”
West has vocalized his support for Trump and recently has sported a red "Make America Great Again" hat, including during an appearance on "Saturday Night Live" late last month when he defended Trump and said people often confront him on how he can back a “racist" president.
“If I was concerned about racism, I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago,” West said. He also claimed he was "bullied" backstage for wearing a "MAGA" hat.
West met with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower in New York City in December 2016 after the election, and is slated to meet with him and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner on Thursday.
Earlier this year, Trump met with Kardashian West, where she urged Trump to release a nonviolent drug offender. Trump then granted clemency to 63-year-old Alice Johnson in June. She also attended another White House meeting in September to discuss prison reform and lobby for the release of Chris Young, another person sentenced to life in prison for drug-related charges.
