Pardon my back

Mogul Jay Z and super producer/artist Kanye West may make beautiful music together and shut down stages across the world when they perform, but an appearance together standing side by side as groom and best man in the wedding of West and Kim Kardashian, is more than likely not going to happen. According to on Sunday March 9 Jay Z has turned down the invitation to be the best man.

It's no secret that Kanye West has recently proposed to reality tv star and mother of his daughter, North West, Kim Kardashian. The wedding is in the planning stages and just like any other huge moment in the everyday life of the Kardashians, the E! network wants the big day filmed for the show, 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

The show has revealed everything about the lives of sisters, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and even "momager" Kris Jenner; from the issues in the marriage of Kloe and NBA star Lamar Odum, to the separation of Kris and husband Bruce Jenner. So it is without question that the bosses at the network would want their cameras front and center catching every single tear-jerking moment of the wedding. Everything from a close up of baby North, to the whites of Kim's teeth and let's not forget, the best man and his family, Jay Z, Beyonce and their two year old daughter Blue Ivy.

For this reason, Jay Z does not want to be a part of the wedding. Reports state that Jay-Z initially agreed to be in Kanye’s wedding, but under the condition that he, his superstar wife Beyoncé, and their daughter Blue Ivy Carter are not filmed during the memorable ceremony. But it's their presence that's going to bring in the big bucks for the Kardashian empire. Sources say Jay-Z knows that if he and his family attends Kanye and Kim’s wedding, E! will offer a significant amount of cash to the Kardashian clan to film the occasion. In fact, the network is already allegedly offering the newlyweds millions for this day.

Unfortunately for Kanye, his buddy and big brother won't be there to celebrate this day unless there is a signed contract in place stating that those cameras will stay out of his, and his face. Mainly because both he and wife Beyonce despise reality tv. Sources say "Beyonce purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion,”

Maybe the "trashy tv" and "lowering her standards" comments have less to do with reality tv as a whole and everything to do with this particular reality show, and maybe even targeting it's leading lady.
