Beyoncé's gift for Kim Kardashian

2013-06-09 21:12

Los Angeles - Beyoncé sent Kim Kardashian a £9 000 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 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.
