Well, this may have been awkward! Tennis pro Serena Williams married Alexis Ohanian in a gorgeous Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 16 in New Orleans and all of her celebrity friends came out to celebrate! But two of Serena’s friends — Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé — were also in attendance, and it was the first time that Kim and Bey have been in the same room since their husbands Kanye West and JAY-Z had a fallout last year.
Kim and Bey came face-to-face for the first time at the VIP section at the wedding, according to TMZ. The ladies were “cordial” with each other and they even exchanged hellos, and they both ordered a glass of champagne from the VIP bar to celebrate the newlyweds, a witness revealed to E! News.

Kim’s hubby Kanye and Bey’s hubby JAY were not in attendance, so the ladies attending the wedding solo. The hip-hop stars have been feuding for nearly a year, and their fallout dates back to Kanye’s onstage rant at the Sacramento concert on his Saint Pablo tour last November. During the 15-minute-long rant, Kanye accused Beyoncé of only agreeing to perform at the 2016 MTV VMAs if her music video for “Formation” beat out Kanye’s “Famous” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” He also turned his attention towards his pal JAY, and Kanye begged JAY to call him and JAY finally addressed feud and revealed the reason for their fallout in an interview on TIDAL’S Rap Radar podcast.
“You got hurt, because this guy was talking about you on a stage,” JAY said back in August. “But what really hurt me, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. Like, Kanye is my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times. He even made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem.”
