Beyonce and her sister Solange Knowles reportedly ignored Kim Kardashian at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards on Sunday night and although the reality star was said to be uncomfortable, her boyfriend Kanye West had no interest in intervening.

Kardashian, who was invited to the awards show by West, was seated to his left while his best friend Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter was on his right along with Beyonce and Solange. Despite being seated in close proximity, the Knowles sisters reportedly gave Kardashian the cold shoulder throughout the night, according to Hollywood Life.
"Look, as far as I know, there's no tension between Kim and Beyonce, but I was there and could see B and Solange throwing shade," one eyewitness told Hollywoodlife.com.
"[Beyonce] wasn't even talking to [Kim] and [she] didn't even give Kim a hug or a f------ high-5 or nothing when she won her awards," the insider added.
Beyonce, 30, won two awards on Sunday night, one for Best Female R&B Artist and a second award for Video Director Of The Year along with Alan Ferguson.
The new mom appeared to be in good spirits throughout the night, laughing and joking with Kanye and Jay-Z and at one point even dancing with Solange. Onlookers, however, could not help but notice that Kardashian, 31, was evidently left out of all the fun.
West, 35, made an effort to support Kardashian and did his best to comfort her when she was deliberately excluded, but the rapper is reportedly not going to intervene or try and force a friendship between her and Beyonce.
"Kim and Beyonce aren't tight at all, but I don't think Kanye is going to approach Jay-Z with that nonsense. He's about making money and making music and he's leaving the temper-tantrums to the girls," a source said.
"Make no mistake, he really likes Kim and made her feel comfortable the entire night. They were backstage hamming it up and kissing and just had a fun time. Jay-Z and Kanye are in it to win it and their women will be all right in time. I'm not saying they're going to be besties, but they will be cordial," the source added.
