This promises to be the wedding of the century!
While reports last week claimed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would marry in Florence, Italy, X17online has confirmed the couple will wed in France, as originally believed -- and the international power couple has bagged the ultimate location ... the Palace of Versailles!
Obviously, Kanye wouldn't settle for anything less than the biggest, baddest, most regal, royal, A-list, over-the-top castle in France, so Versailles it is.
Ms. Kardashian (soon-to-be Mrs. West), jetted out of LAX with daughter North this afternoon on her way to the City of Lights to prepare for the big day next weekend.
Half of Hollywood will be hopping flights to Europe over the coming week, to attend the event of the year. A source tells X17, exclusively:
- "The wedding list is extensive. There will be A-listers from L.A. and actors, designers and artists from Europe. It will be a very international guest list and a veritable who's-who of the entertainment and fashion worlds."
Kim kept calm and carried on as she made her way through the international terminal to her first-class flight to Paris. There are last-minute dress fittings, desert tastings and a rehearsal dinner to take care of, of course. So Kim's got her work cut out for her over the next week.
Despite all the chatter about Italy and about Florence, our source tells us it was never anything other than Paris for the Francofile couple:
- "Kanye loves Florence because he and Kim vacationed there, but he always wanted to get married in France. He has an apartment there, he loves the French people and of course he loves the elegance and the style. Getty Versailles was a dream for him and he made it happen."
