Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be getting married May 24 in Paris, France as confirmed in a series of leaked wedding invitations. The couple is planning a lavish wedding ceremony, Kim’s third, although the reality star denies that the wedding is going to be filmed for Keeping up with the Kardashians and instead will “only” be featured in a magazine spread.
Now, according to a new report, Kanye has persuaded Jay Z to be best man.
“The best news came when Jay sent a gift to Kanye with an inscription referring to Jay Z as the rapper’s ‘Best Man.’ The gift was a gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask, delivered with a $10,000 bottle of scotch, for Kanye to have for his wedding day,” a source told RadarOnline.
The source continued, “Kanye was almost jumping up and down, he was so excited. He was running around Kris‘ house to find Kim saying, ‘Baby, look! Look! Jay and B are coming!’ Kanye has been begging Jay to reconsider his decision not to come to the wedding, an even more devastating decision that left Kanye groomsman-less when he declined being his best man during the televised nuptials.”
Further to Kim’s admission that the wedding ceremony will NOT be filmed for Keeping up with the Kardashians, they won’t be filming North at all either. “They used the loophole in Nori’s contract that they can say no to any life moment she is a part of being filmed, so it would not be in breach of contract,” the source added. “E! understood in the end, because Kanye has been a trooper since joining the Kardashian clan. They are afraid of p**sing him off! They will now film before and after the ceremony but not during.”
“Both Jay and Beyonce are refusing to participate in any filming, so E! will get to air some wedding photos, but none with them in it,” the source claimed. “E! wants to shoot the rehearsal dinner, but Jay is putting his foot down. So the drama continues. Instead, Kim and Kanye are now in talks with Vogue to publish some wedding photos, after their cover did so well.”
Incidentally, the issue did NOT sell well; it sold HALF what had been projected.
The source added, “Jay and Bey don’t mind that at all, as there will be a write-up with it, and they can promote their dual tour.”
