Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Refused to Pay $20,000 Honeymoon Hotel Bill — Report (VIDEO)
One thing Kanye West and Kim Kardashian don't seem short of is money, so it's a little hard to buy (get it, buy? terrible) that they left their honeymoon without paying a $20,000 tab.
RadarOnline talked to a source who said Kimye and family checked into the family-run Castle Oliver complex in Limerick, Ireland, but left after dinner, reportedly complaining that the castle was "too big" and their cell reception was bad. So they went to the Ballyfin House instead.
But hotel insiders told Radar the Castle Oliver crew were left high and dry, because they had ordered so many items to satisfy the couple's demands. Kimye reportedly refused to pay a $20,000 bill and reversed the deposit on their American Express card.
“Everyone is shocked to say the least,” an insider told Radar. “The castle is out a fortune on their honeymoon. It is absolutely awful."
They said since the couple used a "high-level credit card" to pay, it allowed them to get it all refunded at any time. But now "everyone involved in making their honeymoon perfect at Castle Oliver has been completely burned,” including people from all around the area. They added that a staff member based in the U.S. was fired just for booking them the Irish venue. Man, they must've really hated the place!
"We’re talking about one of the richest couples in the entertainment business refusing to pay the bill for their honeymoon," the source continued. "It would have been a dream honeymoon for anyone else in the world, and they should just have the decency to pay their bill.”
Twenty thousand dollars is nothing to Kimye, but it does sound like a lot if they didn't even stay at the place. However, Radar listed some of the couple's alleged requests, including certain foods and champagnes. Kim and Kanye do love to live lavishly, so it's not hard to believe they'd ask for a bunch of expensive items. And there was a rumor that Kim wasn't too happy with the Ireland honeymoon, so maybe that ties into this hotel story.
It's hard to really know what to think without hearing Kim and Kanye's side. Maybe they'd say they did pay, or shouldn't have to pay so much considering they didn't like what they got in the brief time they got it. At any rate, it sounds like the luck of the Irish was not with anyone during this trip!
