So much for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s luxurious Parisian wedding. According to the mayor’s office in Florence, Italy, reality TV’s first couple is actually going to be tying the knot in Italy.
The Associated Press confirms that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” couple spent about $410,000 to rent Florence’s 16th century Belvedere Fort. The wedding is scheduled for May 24. A Protestant minister will preside.
Have no fear that the soon-to-be Wests have lost their love of Paris, though. All those rumors about a Parisian wedding were likely fueled by the fact that guests to the Kardashian/West nuptials will be flying to France first for some pre-wedding celebrations.
Those who have been paying attention to the romance between West and Kardashian have been aware of their love for Paris, but it turns out that Florence also holds a special place in their hearts — or at least in their sexual history.
“I love Florence, I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle,” West tells Florence’s La Nazione newspaper. “And I think we conceived our daughter North here, among the masterpieces of the Renaissance. It was our first honeymoon.”
