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."

Kanye West Reveals Daughter North Was Conceived In Italy

May 16, 2014 08:00 AM


Oh baby!

Kanye West recently revealed that his and Kim Kardashian's daughter North West was likely conceived in Italy!

"I adore Florence. 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 told La Nazione newspaper.

"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," he added.

The rapper also confessed that his fiancee is his fashion muse!

"I consult her on elegance and what I wear. And she does the same for me. Today as a musician I like to dress in a less showy way than in the past,” he gushed.

Yeezy is looking forward to his nuptials with reality star, too!

[I'm] very happy. I am a romantic: for Mother’s Day I gave Kim a wall of flowers. Family is everything for me, the antidote to the pressure of fame. Family and creativity relax me. I am happy to create for my family," he explained.

He's never been so chatty!

Report: Kim Kardashian And Kanye West To Marry In Florence, Italy!

May 15, 2014 10:25 AM


It's hard to keep up with the Kardashians when they keep switching things around!

Though it's been reported for MONTHS now that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry in Paris, France on May 24, a source close to the couple tells Entertainment Tonight that they're actually getting married in Florence, Italy!

Kimye are having a dinner in Paris the night before the wedding, and they will reportedly fly their guests to Italy on private planes for the ceremony.

Kim had her bridal shower last weekend at the Verandah room at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, and she was joined by family and friends at the Paris-themed soiree. Last week Kim took to her Twitter to address rumors about her upcoming nuptials, but she definitely didn't mention this!

“Seeing so many different reports not gonna start disputing them all but a few I want to straighten out," she wrote, adding that the duo are not married (e.g., they haven't actually inked their license in the state of California), they won't be televising their wedding and "no one" has seen her dress. "That's it!" she added. "Unless you hear it from us please don't believe nonsense!" Wait, so how do we know whether to believe this source?

Either way, it explains why the wedding invite was so vague ... but who saw this coming?

Kanye West Goes Nude For Recreation Of Michelangelo Painting With Jay Z

Thanks to the Carter Family Portrait gallery on Tumblr, we now know what the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel would look like if Kanye West and Jay Z were God and Adam ... and it's equally entertaining and hilarious! Funny how Kanye isn't God in this interpretation though...

The Tumblr page features a handful of historic works of art that have been re-done with a R&B twist, and while most of the pieces use Beyonce Knowles' famous face, the one of Kanye and Jay gets our vote as the best adaptation.

From the re-creation of The Creation of Adam to American Gothic with Jay and Bey, whoever spent the better part of their day Photoshopping these famous faces onto pieces by Klimt, Vermeer, Michelangelo, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Guido Reni and Frederick Warren Freer has a big thumbs up from us.

Neither Jay/Bey or Kanye has commented on the project, but we're dying to know what they think of it! Click the gallery below for more photos...

Kanye West Pays Tribute To His Mom, Gifts Kim and Kris On Mother's Day

May 12, 2014 10:12 AM



Despite feeling the loss of his late mother Donda West, Kanye West used Mother's Day to bring joy to his fiance Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner.

On Sunday the proud Papa Instagramed a photo of the Los Angeles skyline with the simple caption, "Hi Mom." On several occasions, Kanye has spoken about the devastating loss felt after his mother passed away in 2007 at the age of 58. Donda died as a result of complications caused by heart disease after undergoing intensive plastic surgery. The music man said that her death was, "like losing an arm and a leg and trying to walk through that'.

But it looks like the 36-year-old is turning heartache into gratitude. Yeezy seems to be especially grateful for his soon-to-be mother in law. Mama Jenner posted some gifts Kanye presented her for Mother's Day. The 58-year-old posted a pic on Instagram with the caption, "And then there's THIS!! What girl wouldn't LOVE a little Saint Laurent and Maison Martin Margiela on Mothers Day?!" The reality star added, "Thank you @kimkardashian @kanyewest I love you both so much!!! #blessed."

Well who wouldn't be happy if they had such a generous son in law!

And of course Kanye couldn't forget about his lady love -- the mother of his daughter North. A very happy Kim showed off one of Kanye's gifts -- a wall full of white flowers. We bet the Kardashians took a whole lotta selflies in front of that thing!

"I woke up to a wall of roses, hydrangeas and peonies!!! I have the best fiance in the world! I love you so much baby!!!! #HappyMothersDay."

Kim posted several pics of the wall of flowers -- including an adorable one of Nori in front of the floral creation.

Clearly the word "understated" is not in Kanye's vocabulary. Seeing his gifts reminds us that we can't wait for their upcoming wedding. We have a distinct feeling that they are going to give "extravagant" a whole new meaning!

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West's Wedding Invitation Is Surprisingly Classy And Simple

May 9, 2014 01:59 PM

kim-kardashian-kanye-west-invite.jpgkim-kardashian-kanye-west-cover-230.jpgKim Kardashian and Kanye West sent out their wedding invitations in mid-April, and we're finally getting a peek at the surprisingly simple and sophisticated card.

According to Us Weekly, only 100 people were given spots on the guest list, and aside from the date and the dress code, not much information is available! "Guests won't know the venue until they get to Paris," an insider told the mag last month. "[Kim] hasn't even told her sisters." Sounds like they're doing a pretty good job keeping stuff under wraps!

Earlier this week Kim took to Twitter to reveal that her May 24 nuptials will NOT be on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, adding that most of what's being reported isn't true. “Seeing so many different reports not gonna start disputing them all but a few I want to straighten out," she wrote, adding that the duo are not married, they won't be televising their wedding and "no one" has seen her dress. "That's it!" she added. "Unless you hear it from us please don't believe nonsense!"

When she posted the message, she initially wrote, "As much as we would love to share these memories, privacy is our main priority," but she quickly removed it, presumably after a backlash on Twitter. As hypocritical as it sounded, it actually seems like Kim is trying to keep her third trip down the aisle out of the public eye. Funny, we never saw that coming!

Kim Kardashian Comes Home To Los Angeles While Kanye West Heads To Europe

Kanye West's expressions get us every time! And Kim's boobs ... Yeezus!

On Tuesday evening Kim Kardashian returned to Los Angeles from New York City, and Kanye was snapped at the airport in NYC heading to Europe. We're not sure if he was pooped from the Met Gala the previous night or annoyed with the flashbulbs, but thankfully Nori's daddy kept his cool. It's been almost a year since his infamous paparazzi smackdown at LAX...

While Kanye went conservative at the Met Gala, Kim flashed her panties and had a last-minute costume change, and she wrote alllll about it on her blog yesterday. "I was in love with my Lanvin strapless dress," she wrote. "It was such a tough decision on how to accessorize. I left the store with a chunky belt and leather cuffs. We were going back and forth for hours if the chunky belt was right. In the car on our way there we got a glimpse of the carpet, and I decided the accessories were a bit too 'rock 'n' roll' and I wanted to go for something more simple and elegant."

"Kanye also liked it better too," she added. "Overall I thought it was the right decision and I loved the way everything came together." As long as it's Yeezus approved...

Kim Kardashian Flashes Her Crotch On Her Way To The Met Gala

You know you can always count on Kim Kardashian to keep it klassy! And is fiance Kanye West laughing about this or something else?!

On Monday evening Kimye left their New York City apartment and headed to the Lanvin boutique, and they emerged a little bit later all decked out and ready to hit the red carpet for the Met Gala. This year's theme is White Tie and Decorations, and while Kanye certainly stuck to it, Kim must have interpreted the decorations part of it to mean that she should wear a bondage-inspired belt and cuffs. Sigh ... this would have worked SO much better last year with the punk theme...

On the plus side -- at least she waxed!
