Jay Z and Kim Kardashian

Fans were convinced that Hov dissed the reality star on his new album.

Jay Z has just released his hotly-anticipated album '4:44' and fans are already eagerly attempting to decipher its lyrics.

Soon after the album dropped, one particular bar began circulating the Internet and kick-started frenzy online amongst listeners.

The line rumoured to be heard on the album's title track reads:

"My wife a queen, not a Kardashian."

As expected, Twitter erupted in reaction to the surprise diss.

However, it was later revealed that the line was in fact fabricated and definitely does not feature on the album.

One reason which may have lead to the rumours spiralling out of control involves the somewhat rocky relationship between Jay Z and Kardashian's husband, Kanye West.

The long-time friends and collaborators left their friendship in limbo after 'Ye ranted about Hov and his wife Beyonce during a Saint Pablo tour stop last October.

Another ongoing theory argues that Bey and Kim Kardashian have always disliked each other, and refuse to spend time together.

Jay Z is yet to respond to the rumours.

Meanwhile, Jay Z will be headlining V Festival in August - the ONLY place to see him perform live this summer!
