Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were expected to get married May 24 in Paris, but reports now claim that the couple, who were recently on the cover of Vogue magazine, are planning to wed this week.
In a surprise twist, the rapper will marry his reality star fiancée in a private ceremony, without E! cameras, according to TMZ. It was originally believed that the wedding would be filmed for Kardashian’s popular reality television show, E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” especially because West’s proposal was filmed for the show. But sources now say the two already have a marriage license and plan to get hitched by Saturday.
The usually public couple is staying quiet about the ceremony, and even obtained a “confidential” marriage license, the gossip site reports. They will have a more lavish wedding at a later date.
As of late, Kardashian has reportedly gone to extreme measures to lose more weight ahead of the wedding. Though the reality TV star has already shed a reported 56 pounds since giving birth to North West in June, she still wants to be slimmer and is working on losing another five pounds.
According to Ok! magazine, Kardashian is restricting her diet to drop the pounds. A source says she is eating only lean protein and green vegetables. To stay on track, “her assistant has a bag of celery sticks at all times.” In addition, Kardashian is said to be drinking only water in what is being dubbed “Atkins mania.” “She doesn’t really drink, but she likes a glass of red wine with dinner and coffee in the morning, but her Atkins mania won’t allow her those anymore. She won’t even have a sip,” the source continues.
Meanwhile, it remains to be seen who will be attending the wedding, after Jay Z reportedly refused to be West’s best man even though they are very good friends.
Jay Z would only do so if he, Beyoncé and their daughter, Blue Ivy, were not caught on camera. “Jay agreed initially but had one condition -- under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé, or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony,” a source told DailyStar. “She [Beyoncé] purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.” However, if the ceremony is taking place this week and not being filmed, Jay Z and his superstar wife may be in attendance after all.
In October, in front of her family and friends, West had a 50-piece orchestra play for Kardashian before asking her to marry him. 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!”
