Friends Or Frienemies? Beyonce & Kim Kardashian Photo’d Together In Birmingham

To be honest, I never foreseen this coming but somehow a fan snapped pictures of Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian together at Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ tour in Birmingham, UK. They were in V.I.P. together. If you look closely at the pics, it looks like Beyoncé was trying to hide when she saw the cameras. I don’t think Beyoncé really wanted to take any pics with Kim. So, are they friends or frienemies? Back in April, it was reported that Bey banned Kim from her inner circle. Do you think that they’re friends or frienemies and should they be friends, why or why not?

Dwyane Wade earned his second, and Chis Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller and Shane Battier all copped their first ring as well.

After winning, Bron Bron told the media that, “It means everything. I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland. But understood what my future was about. And understood that coming to Miami and we had a bright future. This is a dream come true for me. I’ve been through a lot in the past 2 years.”

After his BIG win, Bron Bron hugged his fiancée Savannah Brinson and their children LeBron  James Jr., 7, and Bryce Maximus James, 5.
