Beyonc's fans 'outraged' over singer's new friendship with Kim Kardashian
08:28 GMT, 26 June 2012
It was always a far fetched match, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Beyonc fans are speaking out against her friendship with Kim Kardashian.
Following pictures of the pair watching their men perform together in Birmingham on Friday night, fans of the Grammy award winner are unimpressed with her rubbing shoulders with the reality star.
'Beyonc tries to stay out of the tabloids, while they're Kim's livelihood,' an insider told Radar Online. 'It's an odd pairing.'

Kim, 31, and Beyonc, 30, were pictured by fans in the crowd watching the performance from VIP seats in the arena at the Watch The Throne concert.
They stood next to each other and chatted to members of their entourage as they listened to the performance.

They were then escorted down into the mosh pit by huge bodyguards to let loose on the dance floor.
Kim has so far not commented on her new friend, her silence being a departure from her usual 'overshare' style on Twitter.
A source told the New York Daily News that Kim has been playing her cards right in order to gain Beyonc's trust.

'She’s hung with them a few times already, but she isn’t saying peep about them, a source said.
'She’s not tweeting or taking pictures with Beyonc because she doesn’t want to seem desperate.'
According to reports, the ladies dined together before attending the show at the LG Arena on Friday night, at a meal arranged by Kanye.
A source told The Sun newspaper: 'The
girls have never really seen eye-to-eye. It’s a shame because Jay-Z and
Kanye are so close. Beyonce has always viewed Kim as a reality TV star
who’s not earned her fortune with a specific talent.
Moving on up: Kim is said to be thrilled that Beyonc has finally welcomed her into her circle
'Kanye arranged a dinner in the hotel suite for the girls to clear the air. He’s hoping that now they’re pals it will lead to further get-togethers away from the tour. Beyonce has now welcomed Kim into the clan.'
Beyonc was spotted in the crowd the following night at Hackney Weekend when Jay-Z and Kanye performed, but it is unknown if Kim was there too.
Beyonc was caught on camera in the mosh pit towards the end of her husband's performance.
