BeyoncÃ©’s crystal-studded gift for Kim Kardashian
Beyoncé sent Kim Kardashian a £9 000 (around R100 000) baby shower gift! The Love On Top hitmaker and her husband Jay-Z couldn’t attend the event but were reportedly able to make it up to the reality TV star with a “crystal-studded high chair”. A source revealed to the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s gift could not be outdone, a £9 000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair, designed by Carla Monchen. They had a similar one for their daughter Blue Ivy.”
Another big name who didn’t go to the baby shower was Gwyneth Paltrow, who gave a more practical – but much less extravagant – gift. The insider added: “Both Gwyneth and Beyoncé politely declined Kim’s offer of attending her baby shower. Beyoncé is busy touring and Gwyneth doesn’t really know Kim that well. They met at a fitness event just the month before and share the same trainer Tracy Anderson. Instead, Gwyneth – also besties with Beconcé – sent six-months-pregnant Kim a £350 Vitamix blender and a 21-day cleanse that will help her bounce back into shape after the birth.”
Despite the high-profile snubs, Kim still enjoyed the company of the likes of Kelly Osbourne and Kimberley Stewart.
