Insiders claim Kanye West wanted Jay Z to be the Best Man in his wedding to Kim Kardashian but Jay turned him down flat.
According to The Daily Star,
A pal of the Kardashians told us: “Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man.”
“Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”
We’re told: “The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé.”
“She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
Our source continued: “Bosses at E! are desperate to get the nuptials on air, and will pay millions to make it happen.”
Blue Ivy ain’t got no time for that!
Wanna get Allen Iverson to pay his child support bill? Threaten jail because the ex-NBA star finally coughed up the $40,000 he owed his ex wife narrowly escaping time in the slammer.
TMZ broke the story … Iverson’s ex, Tawanna, has been trying to collect child support from the b-baller since their divorce was finalized in February, but no cigar. Then, last month she asked a judge to throw him in jail, if he continued to dodge the bill: $8,000 / month for the last 5 months.
In new court docs — filed last month in Fulton County, GA — Iverson said he never paid the money because he was led to believe he and Tawanna would reconcile.
Taking a hard stance a judge ordered Iverson pony up the cash within 72 hours … or be arrested.
The threat apparently worked, Iverson’s lawyer tells TMZ … “Allen has complied with the order and met every term for which he was required.”
Also … he’s not in jail.

R. Kelly is accused in court papers filed Thursday by his ex-wife Andrea Kelly of failing to pay $20,833 a month in child support he owes. The claim comes after he reportedly fell behind more than $100,000 in payments last year, but then paid the debt off.
Kelly’s trouble doesn’t end there: One of his attorneys has told Kelly’s camp that if the singer doesn’t appear at a March 27 hearing in his child- custody battle in Chicago, a judge could give him 30 days to six months behind bars because Kelly didn’t show up at a November hearing.
“The judge was clear in November that he wasn’t happy R. Kelly didn’t show up,” said a source. “His lawyer is worried the judge could lock Kelly up if he doesn’t show this time, but he can’t reach his client.”
According to reports Kells owes a lot of people money from his last album and has been ‘unreachable’ for weeks.
