Beyonce plays the supportive wife at Jay-Z's concert with Kanye West... as Kim Kardashian keeps her distanceAs Sasha Fierce she can sell out the biggest arena, but last night Beyonce was playing a different role - that of supportive wife.
The superstar was relegated to a spot in the stands as she cheered on her husband Jay-Z during his show with Kanye West at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia.
Kanye's girlfriend Kim Kardashian was also at the show, after flying into the city with her rapper boyfriend on his helicopter.
But the brunette was not seen partying with Beyonce.
