It’s hard to make new friends. And it’s especially hard to win over your new boyfriend’s best buds — do they like you, or are you one in a long line of girlfriends your new beau has dragged along on double dates? But Kim Kardashian is doing her best to win over Kanye West’s crowd. What does it take to make a celebrity friendship for the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star?
Kanye West has had a longstanding friendship with rap star Jay-Z. And now that Jay-Z is a family man, with Beyonce and Blue Ivy in tow, he’s a package deal. So now that Kim Kardashian’s the new girlfriend, she’s been trying to bribe the kid in order to win over the parents.
According to “The Enquirerer,” Kim Kardashian bought a $5000 diamond-studded baby bracelet for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s 6-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy. Because that’s what new parents need for their child — diapers, formula and a priceless bracelet the kid could swallow. Kim engraved the bracelet with “Love Auntie Kim.”
A source close to the situation told “The Enquierer” that Kim and Beyonce “have been friends for five minutes, but already Kim is trying to force herself into Beyonce’s life,” says a source. After Kim bought Blue Ivy the pink-and-white-diamond-studded bracelet, Beyonce was moved by the lavish gesture, but then she became suspicious of the grandiose ‘Auntie Kim’ engraving…she certainly doesn’t consider Kim family in any way, shape or form. And for Kim to suggest that closeness in a present for Blue Ivy really put Beyonce off.”
Looks like some tension-filled couple’s brunches in the near future filled with awkward silences and passive aggressive comments. Sounds like reality TV to us!
