Will Too Much Exposure Cost Kanye West His Best Man?

Kanye West asked his best pal Jay Z to accept the honor of being his best man, and initially, the 44-year-old artist said yes. However, after word got out that the event could potentially be sold to E! for an exclusive episode on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ Blue Ivy’s father changed his mind.

“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé,” says a source apparently close to Bey and Jay Z. “She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”

E! is so desperate to own rights to the extravagant spectacle that they are willing to pay millions, including the total cost of the wedding itself. Although Kim Kardashian originally told Ryan Seacrest that she preferred a small and intimate wedding, the notion coming out of the reality star sounds out of character. Her last marriage to Kris Humphries in 2011 was broadcasted in a two-part special showing the preparations of the big day, as well as the wedding ceremony and all its accompanying festivities.

What do you think will be more important to Kanye: an all-expense paid wedding to air on television or the presence of his best man and family? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
