Beyoncé refuses to be filmed for reality TV show at Kimye's wedding

Beyoncé Knowles has reportedly said that "under no circumstances" will she be filmed at Kanye West's wedding.
The hip-hop artist is marrying reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Paris on May 24.
There are varied reports about whether the nuptials will be caught on camera for Kim's show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. While Kim is generally happy to be filmed, Kanye is known to be more private - although he did allow his proposal to be shot for the series.
Kanye is close friends with Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé, who is apparently unhappy with the idea of appearing on the small screen show.
"[She has said that] under no circumstances will she be a part of any filming on the wedding day if it’s for Kim’s reality show," an insider claimed to RadarOnline.
"Jay and Beyoncé’s wedding was shrouded in secrecy and extreme lengths were made to make sure their wedding was an intimate affair for friends and family, only. This will be the complete opposite."
Jay and Kanye have been close for years and even released a joint album called Watch the Throne in 2011, which they promoted on tour together.

Beyoncé has been more open about her private life over the last year or so, including releasing a documentary last year called Life Is But a Dream. However, she still strives to keep her and Jay's two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy out of the limelight. She also managed to release a surprise album last year, with the self-titled offering topping the Billboard 200 chart even though it was released with no fanfare.
It's been claimed Kanye and Kim are planning to ask their wedding guests to sign no-disclosure agreements and won't allow cell phones during the nuptials. Their superstar-couple pals will likely not be included in that though.
The details of the nuptials are not known at the moment, although Kim has previously hinted the wedding will be far from the flashy day many are expecting.
Kim Kardashian wants a 'super small, intimate' wedding
"We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding," she explained. "As we go along, we're realising we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking."
Kim tied the knot with Kris Humphries in front of 500 people in 2011. The marriage featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and was criticised, as the big day cost millions, with Kim filing for divorce after 72 days.
