It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren’t exactly having a budget wedding, but could it be that the power couple will actually come out in the black from their Paris nuptials? That’s the scoop from In Touch Weekly (via The Daily Mail), who reports that Kim is “cutting deals left and right” and stands to make a cool $21 million by the time the ice sculptures have melted.
According to the gossip mag, Kim had a come to Yeezus moment about the high cost of her big day and found the best way to recoup expenses would be to cash in. Though Kim has already stated publicly that her actual wedding would not be filmed, she has been commemorating everything leading up.
An insider claims that Kim “told E! they wouldn’t allow parts of [the pre-wedding hooplah] to be taped unless the network offered them more than $15 million, which is what Kim got for her wedding to Kris [Humphries].”
We’re taking this report with a pretty liberal dose of salt, though. First off, we find it hard to believe that Kanye would be in favor of this sort of cash-grab over what is also his big day, and second, neither the rapper himself nor his reality star bride is exactly cash poor.
Finally, it doesn’t make much sense from the network’s end, either. Why would E! shell out that much money if they don’t even get to show the actual wedding? We’re not ruling this rumor busted, but it’s definitely suspicious!
What do you think: Is Kim cashing in big for this wedding, or are she and Kanye fully footing the bill?
