Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in Paris, planning the wedding of the century and we've got all the exclusive details!

We're sure the couple has tried to rent out Versailles for the big day, but that is NOT going to happen.

They definitely don't want to follow Eva Longoria and Tony Parker who celebrated their nuptials at Vaux-le-Vicomte just outside of Paris. So they checked out the 17th-century, Louis XIV-commissioned Chateau de Louveciennes.

The chateau has an interesting recent history ... squatters actually occupied the building in the early 1980's until a French businessman purchases the property in 1994 and carefully restored it.

Now it's lovely and picture-perfect and wedding-ready. After a day of shopping in Paris -- a stop at Balmain and a meeting with their pal, Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci -- the pair jump in a van for the hour-long ride to the chateau, with their entourage in tow. The group toured the property for about two hours, with a guide leading them through the historic buildings and gardens. A source tells X17online exclusively:

    "Kanye was taking the lead, asking all the questions and visualizing the big day and how everything might work. Kim offered a little input, but not much. It was all about how Kanye thought things should go and how he wants the wedding to look."

So will Kimye choose this lovely spot as the location for their Big Day? We'll find out soon enough (May 24)!




EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kanye West Returns From A Quick Trip To Asia

But apparently he wasn't there to meet up with the Kardashian family -- he was handling his own business in China while they're busy posting sexy bikini selfies from Thailand!

Kanye West arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday evening, and though he has a history of uh, going after photographers there, he kept his cool this time. Yeezy was in China to promote his new Adidas shoe line, which he's been working on for quite some time now.

While hopping from Nike to Adidas was a big move, apparently the rapper was ticked off earlier this year when he learned that Pharrell Williams was in talks to sign a deal with the sportswear brand as well. "They are competitive in both music and fashion, Kanye always watches what Pharrell does," a source told The Sun. "He thinks having a similar artist working on their own brand for Adidas will make his collection less special."

Oh Yeezy. What's he going to do next, try to go after a judging spot on a music competition show? Oh wait...




Kanye West Turns Himself In To Police For Battery Charges, Released After Just 49 Minutes

Mar 28, 2014 09:59 AM

Kanye West turned himself in to police yesterday for booking in connection with his misdemeanor battery case, which stems from his assault on a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last summer.

Yeezy arrived at the Hollywood LAPD station at 4:30pm on Thursday to have his mug shot and fingerprints taken, and he was released 49 minutes later.

Earlier this month the rapper struck a plea deal, and he was given 24 months probation, ordered to complete 240 hours of community service and ordered to complete 24 sessions of a level-two anger management program.

There is a progress report hearing set for July 17, 2014 (this will cover the anger management and restitution) and at that point the judge will also be signing off on a community service program. Kanye's progress report on community service is set for September 17, at which point the judge said he expects to see a "real number of hours" completed.

On Tuesday evening Kim Kardashian slipped into a see-through dress for dinner with fiance Kanye West, Anna Wintour and Harvey Weinstein in New York City, and she had no qualms showing off her granny panties and full coverage bra when we snapped her picture. Keepin' it classy!

Prior to that Kim made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and she chatted all about the couple's controversial Vogue cover. Kim revealed that they had absolutely no idea they would get the cover, and she kept the photo shoot a secret from her sisters by ... blaming it on Kanye?! Yup! Kim also shrugged off criticism that the duo didn't deserve the cover said:

    "Just to be in the same name as so many amazing people that have been on the cover is such an honor, and to have Anna Wintour pick us, and I know that, it's like, the first of a lot. Kanye’s the first rapper to be on, I’m the first reality person to be on and the first interracial couple. All of these mean so much to Kanye and I ... it's honestly the biggest dream come true."

And not only that, but apparently baby Nori peed on Kanye during one of the shots. Um, that seriously just made our day! Check out the interview below:




Kim Kardashian Eats While Kanye West Makes Beats In N.Y.C.

After touching down in N.Y.C., they both got straight to doing what they do best!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took the redeye early Tuesday morning to the Big Apple, and the reality star didn't even change her clothes before heading to brunch at Cipriani while her rapper fiancé took care of business at the studio.

Kimmy K has been basking in the release of her Vogue cover, but she better not forget she has a wedding to plan! Kimye's nuptials are set to take place on May 24 in Paris, which gives her less than two months to finalize details. We have a feeling that after landing the front of America's fashion bible, the couple will definitely add Anna Wintour to the guest list!

If we had to guess, we would put our money on Yeezy's bestie Riccardo Tisci designing the brunette beauty's gown!

It seems as if the pair plan on lingering in Europe after they exchange vows, as The Louis Vuitton Don just announced some upcoming tour dates across the pond. His first show abroad will take place in Montpellier, France on June 21.

Looks like little Nori will celebrate her first birthday in her parents' favorite city!




Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Cover The April Issue Of Vogue Magazine

Mar 21, 2014 10:15 AM

We're not sure WHAT Kanye West has hanging over Anna Wintour's head, but clearly he did a great job negotiating this one!

The rapper has reportedly been trying to get Wintour to do a cover featuring Kim Kardashian for years now, and it looks like his persistence has paid off, because the duo are on the front of the April 2014 issue. Unless this is an early April Fools' Day joke courtesy of Vogue.com, this is 100% real...

Last November West met with Wintour in Beverly Hills, and according to Page Six, "He was talking nonstop. She did not get a word in edgewise.” The year before that, West brought Kardashian as his date to the Met Gala in New York City, and he made a point of introducing his fiance to the notoriously cold editor-in-chief. Wintour organizes the event, and Kardashian still has yet to receive an invite -- 2013 marked the first time she ever attended.

During his initial campaign to land the former sex tape star the cover of the fashion glossy, West told Ryan Seacrest, "There's no way [Kim] shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue. She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday ... Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day."

Annie Leibovitz shot the wedding spread of the couple, and while the behind-the-scenes video below is set to the laughably bad tune of "Bound 2," the one thing that makes all of this worth it is the adorable footage of the couple's daughter Nori.

Check it out below ... and let us know what you think about Kimye's Vogue cover!




Kanye West And Kim Kardashian Could Win Millions From YouTube Co-Founder After Judge Greenlights Lawsuit

Mar 19, 2014 09:45 AM

Don't mess with Kimye, YouTube dude!

On Tuesday, a judge ruled that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's lawsuit against YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley doesn't violate his free speech rights and will proceed. The couple is seeking unspecified damages from Hurley and his company Avos Systems Inc. over leaked footage from the couple's October proposal.

Superior Court Judge Ruth Ann Kwan rejected a motion from the tech entrepreneur to dismiss the case against him on constitutional grounds, so Kimye and the YouTuber will eventually go to court to settle the matter on November 17.

Hurley was sued just days after posting the two-and-a-half-minute video of West's multi-million dollar proposal on his new video-sharing website MixBit. Hurley claims that he wasn't informed that he was not allowed to film or distribute the footage, however the judge ruled that "CONFIDENTIALITY" could be read clearly on the document that he signed.

The judge also agreed that the couple's assertion that Hurley's "wrangling" over the case has been "improper." If found liable fraud charges, according to TMZ sources, the billionaire could be forced to pay millions to the engaged couple.
We guess when Google buys your company for $1.6 billion -- a few million is just a drop in the bucket!




Kanye West Strikes Plea Deal In Battery Case, Gets Community Service And Two Years Of Probation

Mar 17, 2014 02:30 PM

kanye-west-assault-460.jpg

Kanye West's attorney appeared in Los Angeles County Superior Court today and plead no contest in the rapper's battery case, which stems from an altercation West had with a photographer last July.

West will not be prosecuted, but he was given 250 hours of community service, two years of informal probation (which the judge noted would be "enforced strictly"), and he must attend 24 anger management counseling sessions, which can be done privately. The rapper has also agreed to pay for the damage to the lensman's equipment and any medical bills, and he must stay 100 yards away from the photographer. But won't this be a little bit tricky if the photog tries to take photos of Kanye again? Nope! The pap's lawyer stated that her client would no longer be covering the rapper, and both sides seemed complacent with this.

The judge noted that West was not to receive any "special treatment" -- he will be neither punished nor aided by celeb status, adding that this is "not an unusual sentence for first time offenders."

There is a progress report hearing set for July 17, 2014 (this will cover the anger management and restitution) and at that point the judge will also be signing off on a community service program. Kanye's progress report on community service is set for September 17, at which point the judge said he expects to see a "real number of hours" completed.

West was being charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor attempted grand theft, and because of his plea, the theft charge has been dropped. And if he hasn't violated probation at the end of his two-year period, the battery charge will likely be erased as well. But keep in mind, the photographer's lawyer, Gloria Allred, has also filed a civil law suit against West on behalf of her client, so this is hardly over...

In case you missed it, check out the video below of the altercation:
