Singer Lana Del Rey will perform “Young and Beautiful,” one of Kim Kardashian’s favorite songs, when the reality TV star exchanges vows with Kanye West at their wedding ceremony on May 24 in France, according to media reports.
According to Mirror Online, the singer will be flown to Paris for the wedding ceremony and has been offered a six-figure sum for her performance. West initially tried to get Del Rey to perform at the couple’s engagement party in October 2013, but she reportedly turned him down. Kardashian and West are reportedly spending more than $1 million on their wedding.
"Kanye knew how much Kim loved Lana's music, which is why he tried to get her to perform at the proposal," a source told the newspaper. "So he upped the offer to perform at the wedding and told Lana that it's his and Kim's special song and it would mean so much to have her perform it. She couldn't say no."
A source close to Del Rey told Hollywood Life that the singer might perform “an acoustic song, something really classy” at the nuptials.
Last summer, Kardashian had openly declared that she was a big fan of Del Rey. The reality TV star wrote on her Twitter account at the time: “I can't get this Lana Del Rey song out of my head! #youngandbeautiful.”
According to reports, West had proposed to Kardashian at AT&T Park in San Francisco in October 2013, where an orchestra version of “Young and Beautiful” played in the background because Del Rey had declined to perform the track in person at the time.
Meanwhile, Kardashian’s step-brother Brody Jenner, the son of her step-father Bruce Jenner, will not attend the ceremony because his girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, is not invited. But, the older Jenner was reportedly spotted travelling to Paris, along with the rest of the family, as he is expected to walk the bride down the aisle.
According to reports, it was confirmed Tuesday that the pair have been denied permission to get married at the Palace of Versailles.
"Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to let their guests discover the Château of Versailles during a private surprise tour on Friday, May 23, the eve of their wedding," a statement by the couple and officials at the Louis XIV estate reportedly said.
