Kanye admits that he was 'hurt' that Jay Z and Beyonce didn't come to his wedding

Kanye West has revealed that he "was hurt" that Jay-Z and Beyonce didn't come to his wedding.

The rapper opened up about his relationship with Jay in a nearly two hour-long interview with Charlamagne tha God - specifically with regards to Jay and Bey not attending West's nuptials to Kim Kardashian in 2014.

Charlamagne brings up when Jay said West "went too far" in talking about his family when the rapper brings up his own wedding to Kardashian.

"It depends on how you look at it: if we're brothers, we are family," the 40-year-old rapper explains. "Then it's my family. If we're business associates then it was too far."

He then brings up Jay and Bey skipping his wedding: "Respectfully, I have to say I was hurt that they didn't come to the wedding. I understand they were going through some things, but if it's family, you're not gonna miss a wedding."

"I'm not using my interview to put out any negative things, but I've got to state my truth," he continues.

Then Charlamagne brings up that the rumour that Bey had an issue with Kardashian as what prompted the musical couple to skip out on his wedding.

But West doesn't necessarily agree. "I'm not sure," he says. "I'm past it, but at the time I was hurt about it."

He says he never "addressed it directly" with Jay and doesn't "think the answer fixes it."

When asked if West has seen Jay in-person, he replies:"I haven't seen him, but I can feel him."

​The lengthy interview also addresses the rapper's return to Twitter, his mental breakdown and how he forgave himself for the Paris robbery where Kardashian was held hostage.
