Fresh off Kanye West's rant on stage where he basically called Jay Z a 'fake friend' for not checking on Kim Kardashian, Page Six claims the real reason Jay Z did not show much concern is because he does not like Kanye. Via Page Six.....
A music insider told us that the rappers’ friendship was never what it seemed. “Jay can’t stand him,” said the source. “He looks at him as this crazy, eccentric motherf - - ker he can tolerate in small doses. Kanye is a nut job. Everyone knows that.”
The source said of the tour for the duo’s blockbuster 2011 album “Watch the Throne” that Jay Z “tolerated” West because “there was so much money to be made. Jay was like, ‘I’m gonna knock this out. We’re going to do a tour to bring in millions of dollars. I can tolerate that. ”
A source close to West insisted of the hit-makers, “It didn’t seem like Kanye was dissing Jay at all. They are brothers, closer than friends. Jay appreciates Kanye’s genius, understands his passions and eccentricities and is accepting of it all.”
But our first source maintained: “That’s just perception. The reality is that Jay doesn’t want that much to do with him. He likes his own space and is private. They’re very much not the same person. Jay’s immediate circle is very insular, and Kanye is just a guy who always wants something in the spotlight.”
