Kim Kardashian’s original plans to get married in Paris, France, as confirmed to Jimmy Kimmel, have changed.
She and Kanye West are now getting married in Florence Italy.
Kanye recently told an Italian newspaper, the wedding is in Florence because that’s where they conceived North during a trip together. “I adore Florence,” the rapper told La Nazione, “I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito.”
He added, “I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces. It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world—for me the most beautiful in Europe.”
According to PEOPLE.com, the couple will rent 16th-century Forte di Belvedere for 300,000 euros ($411,000) on May 24.
In other news, Kim reportedly expected this week’s headlines would belong to her. However, everyone is talking about Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange and the elevator attack; with Solange’s column inches even landing her talks to appear on SNL.
“[Kim] assumed this would be her news week,” said one source. “After the Vogue cover and the MET ball, she thought the nation would be on official wedding watch. Not talking about Solange!”
“Of all the people to steal her thunder,” added one insider of Solange Knowles, the lesser-known sister. “Poor Kim, it seems she will always be in Beyoncé’s shadow. Even when Queen Bey would rather give her spotlight away.”
UPDATE 17/5/14: According to TMZ.com, the couple is not getting married in Florence, but in France at Versailles.
