Beyonce fans not happy she’s hanging with Kim Kardashian

HollywoodNews.com: Beyonce’s fans are very into her, but one thing they are not so into is her budding friendship with Kim Kardashian.
As the two women were spotted hanging out at a Jay-Z, Kanye West concert, fans went crazy over the photos, states RadarOnline. “Kim Kardashian is not the sort of girlfriend that Beyoncé fans envision the new mother having,” one fan commented.
“Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian in the same picture let alone the same sentence is tragic,” another fan commented on Twitter.
However, considering that Kim is now dating Jay-Z’s good friend, a Kim/Beyonce friendship seems somewhat inevitable. At the very least, this is likely not the last time they will be pictured together.
