Kim Kardashian got married over the weekend to fiancé Kanye West, according to television personality Ryan Seacrest. But Kardashian fans can rest easy after he admitted that it was just an April Fools' Day joke.
Seacrest, who has produced a number of hit shows, including ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians,’ wrote on his website, "Over the weekend, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got married in Thailand, where the entire Kardashian-Jenner family has been on vacation. The couple exchanged vows on a private beach at sunset on Sunday, with Kanye holding their daughter North in his arms.”
But the 39-year-old was just tricking fans, and at the end of his article, said, "April Fools! The above story is just a fun fabrication … hope you had a good laugh with us.”
According to Us Weekly, West and Kardashian will actually be making May 24 the special day. The wedding will take place in Paris, less than two weeks before West’s 37th birthday. It seems like West is definitely going to allow E! to film the wedding, after he already allowed them to film and air the surprise proposal.
The rapper said in interviews that he would allow his wedding to be filmed -- for the right price, of course. Speaking to Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood last year, he revealed, "I would take as much as possible. If you’re gonna pay me. … Me and Kim are in the exploitation business. We get paid to exploit ourselves. I’mma give my daughter the opportunity to exploit [herself]. That’s why we didn’t get any money to take baby pictures. If I would go perform somebody’s wedding for a million dollars and somebody wanna give me 10 million for mine, I would take it [sic].”

In October, in front of her family and friends, West had a 50-piece orchestra play Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful,” before playing his own hit song “Knock Me Down.” The couple has been dating since last year, though they have known each other for around a decade. Kardashian was more than happy to say “yes,” later telling E! News, “Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world! I get to marry my best friend!"
