Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are insistent on having a wedding fit for royalty, even if it means bypassing a few little laws to reach their goal.
The couple, who had originally planned to wed at Versailles, were forced to move their nuptials to Florence when the pair found out that, as American citizens, the French government wouldn’t look to kindly on them tying the knot in the land of wine and cheese.
While Kim and Kanye were upset that France wasn’t sufficiently impressed by their celebrity status to bend the rules for them, the powers that be at Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ parent network, E!, who are footing the bill for the fete, were infinitely more incensed.
“Versailles is booked and paid for by E!,” a Kardashian insider revealed to RadarOnline.com
“They were furious when Kanye demanded to change the venue, since the French government wouldn’t let them break the rules and let them marry there without living there for the correct amount of days. So they moved that part of the wedding to Italy, their way around that French rule.”
While Kim may officially become Mrs. West in Florence, she and Kanye aren’t giving up on their dreams of a French fairy tale wedding just yet.
“They’re still doing something in Paris. Both are supposed to be ‘weddings’ except neither will be legally binding,” says the source. “There will be huge parties, and some wedding traditions, but no actual ‘I dos.’”
Do you think Kim and Kanye are asking too much for their big day?
