It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé have had a strained relationship for more than a decade.
When Kardashian first started dating Kanye West, media outlets pitted the two women against each other. Beyoncé is currently married to Jay-Z, West’s close friend.
Kardashian and Beyoncé’s relationship has been filled with missing life-changing events, public rants, political alliances and public steps to rectify the wrong. Could it be that West was the biggest obstacle in their relationship? We take you through the timeline.
Where it all began
Kardashian and West started dating in 2011 and from the moment they publicly confirmed their relationship, there was speculation that Beyoncé was not Kardashian’s biggest fan. Grazia reported that even though West and Jay-Z were close at the time, Kardashian and Beyoncé were barely photographed together.
Although there were numerous rumours about why Beyoncé was not a fan of Kardashian’s, British media put it down to that Queen B simply “never genuinely liked Kim”, explaining that she tolerated the reality star because of her relationship with West.
