The source says the couple are “sick” of Kanye West’s “political bullshit.” The Carters were heavily involved in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, performing at several rallies and urging their fans to vote for the democrat.
Their relationship with West has been tumultuous over the past few years. The rapper spoke about the couple during one of his MANY long rants during his 2016 Saint Pablo Tour, saying “Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me.” amongst the ten minute rant.
“They are outraged over Kanye’s recent political rants,” the source continued, saying they have severed ties with West as well as his wife Kim Kardashian. “They think Kanye is a disgrace and is only doing this for attention. Beyoncé 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. They want nothing to do with either one of them.”
