Jay Z is expected to act as best man to his longtime friend and collaborator, Kanye West, during West’s upcoming wedding to reality star Kim Kardashian. According to Radar Online, an anonymous source says that Jay Z and his superstar wife, Beyoncé, will attend the ceremony; this after initial reports that the power couple would not be at the wedding at all.

The couple’s reluctance to attend was reportedly due to concerns over being filmed as a part of Kim’s popular series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Kim Kardashian negotiated with the E! Network to ensure that no cameras would be allowed into the ceremony. It is presumed that the no-cameras decree led to Jay and Beyoncé deciding to attend.

Kardashian has already had to deny rumors that she and West have gotten married.

1. We are not married yet!” she wrote. “2. We are not filming our wedding for Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Kardashian tweeted last week. “You will see everything leading up til and after! As much as we would love to share these memories on camera, we’ve decided to keep this close to our hearts; share thru photos.”

Jay Z reportedly gave Kanye a “gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask” with a bottle of Scotch worth $10,000 in celebration of his upcoming nuptials.
