The power couple plan to wed this summer in Paris. And they want to outdo the royal wedding of 2011.
Yeah, OK. Folks, you read that right.
After proposing in October, West insisted the two wear crowns at their wedding…
“Kim and Kanye will be in handcrafted headpieces he commissioned for them … He thinks he and Kim are royalty,” a source told Us magazine.
Originally they planned to have the wedding at Palace Of Versailles, but they were denied. Now they are gunning for Chateau d’Usse.
“Kanye wants it broadcast around the globe,” another source told VH1′s “The Gossip Table” about the upcoming wedding. “He wants it to be a National holiday, a day when everyone can take time off to celebrate the world’s most famous couple.”
The couple is reportedly struggling with West’s lavish demands.
“He’s a total snob when it comes to style, design and architecture … he thinks nothing of changing direction midway and starting over,” the insider said. “He’s a control freak and flies off the handle when things don’t go his way.”
Also, the couple hopes to get Stevie Wonder to perform at the ceremony. With a $30 million budget, that should be arrangeable.
“Kanye is obsessed with creating moments, like he did with the baseball-stadium engagement,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “Now he’s working on all these huge surprises for the wedding, but as a result she has virtually no idea what is going to happen at her own wedding,” the source explained. “She’s been kept in the dark about a lot of the details, and that doesn’t make her happy.”
That sounds like trouble waiting to happen. But the wedding isn’t their only trouble. Their Bel Air home is being renovated.
“The house has a long way to go before they can move in. It’s frustrating for Kim,” another source said.
Well, the best of luck to the couple in their many multi-million dollar family investments.
