Kanye West & Kim Kardashian will have to jump through hoops to marry in Paris


According to Page Six, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Vogue cover is selling reasonably well. As it turns out, Vogue might have inspired some angry tweets and some claims that fans would cancel their subscriptions, but the newsstand issues are selling at a steady clip – Page Six says the issue will sell between 300,000 to 400,000, which is about what Beyonce’s March 2013 cover sold, and Kimye’s cover will sell more than Michelle Obama’s April 2013 cover. So, everything’s coming up Kimye? Perhaps. Unfortunately, the wedding planning drama never ends. Radar says that Kanye and Kim’s grand plans for a Parisian wedding have taken a big hit:

Mon Dieu! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s Parisian wedding plans have hit a major snafu, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned, after the couple learned that French law requires a 40-day residency requirement PRIOR to any wedding! Kardashian, 33, had planned on saying I Do to West, 36, on May 24. But according to various statutes in France, at least one of the parties has to have resided in France for at least 40 days prior to the wedding.

Radar reviewed the law with the French Embassy in Washington D.C. whom advised: “All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorize the deputy mayor or a city councilor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements cannot be waived.”

A Kardashian source confirmed: “Kim and Kanye were unaware until recently that France required a residency requirement prior to the marriage. Kanye has an apartment in Paris, but he doesn’t live there full-time.”

This could explain the sudden and unexpected change to West’s Yeezus world tour, as we reported last week: The hip hop recording artist announced he would be postponing his planned Australian tour — which had originally been scheduled for the weeks before the May 24 event — until the fall. West claimed he made the switch to give himself more time to work on his upcoming studio album, due later this year. But on Twitter, fans seemed to think that it was no coincidence he was postponing his professional obligations as he preps for the big day!

French law further dictates that there be TWO wedding ceremonies.

“The religious ceremony has to be performed after the civil ceremony (never before). The minister, priest or rabbi will require a certificate of civil marriage before any religious ceremony takes place,” the French Embassy also said.

We’re told Kimye’s French marriage will be legally recognized in the United States.

[From Radar]

Oh, that sounds like a somewhat reasonable conspiracy theory actually. I kind of believe it now – Kanye postponed part of his Yeezus tour so that he could establish 40 days of residency in Paris before the wedding. Plus, he probably does want to micromanage all of the wedding details. I know everyone expects the wedding to be super-tacky, but you never know… if Kanye is organizing it completely, it might end up kind of cool.

Last thing: there were some super-exclusive photos of Kim in a thong bikini going around yesterday – you can see them here. Her ass hypnotized me, I can’t lie.

    Translation: No French freebies!

  2. aims says:

    You’re right. It’s truly hypnotic. It’s like apart of the seventh wonders. I could careless about the marriage. It won’t last long, not as long as those thong pictures.

  3. Anon says:

    Bets Kim and Kanye bought. Issues of the mag to make sure it was in line with Beyonce and JayZ.. Don’t think this wedding is going to happen. Never did.. It will stall and stall.. Now the competition is really Kim against Beyonce

    The asssssss….. How many injections. And has Khloe started the same procedure

  4. Dani2 says:

    “The reality star proudly revealed the truly jaw-dropping size of her behind as she perched on the side of a red rowing boat in Thailand.”

    Why does the writing from Daily Fail always sound like fanfiction? 😂

  5. lkaye says:

    Those ass pictures are gross. Girl you are a MOTHER to a little girl who will look up to you, act like one!!!

  6. Dawn says:

    Oh please. This is what happens when uneducated people think they can do whatever they want whenever and wherever they want. I don’t believe for one second that Kanye West didn’t know this after spending so much time in Paris. These two are all smoke and mirrors and frankly I am sick to death of them and their stunts. Let’s see if Kanye’s money can find a way around this one! There simply is no excuse for stupid. Ha.

  7. Tatjana says:

    Why people make such huge spectacles of their weddings will forever remain a mystery to me.

  8. Size Does Matter says:

    I think lots of people work around this issue by having a civil service in the US and then just doing the religious one in France. But then there’s no cool French, non-peasanty marriage license. Not special enough for Yeezuz. Plus, he gets a 40-day-long bachelor party in Paris! Bonus.

  9. Tracy says:

    I really wish I could un-see those ass pictures. She is gross.

    One last thought… it truly amazes me how terrified little North looks with her parents.

    • Anna-fo-Fanna says:

      You’re right about the baby. I was prepared to give Kimye the benefit of the doubt, thinking that they (Kanye) didn’t want to monetize their little darling, so that’s why we weren’t seeing her. But these photos, my God, they just look SO uncomfortable on everyone’s part. Nobody looks attached to each other; it looks like a happy families shoot gone wrong where they hired models to pose and they did so poorly. Really unfortunate, and just sad for that gorgeous little girl. Poor igNori.

  10. Ms.Mercury says:

    Those pictures of Kim on the beach are sad to say disturbing. Her body is so strange. I’m not trying to shame those with big butts (because they are beautiful) but Kim’s butt looks odd her really skinny legs don’t help make it look natural to which she claims lol.

    But I will say something nice her stomach looks really good in those same pictures.

  11. Arock says:

    Anyone care to start an over- under on the longevity of the marriage? You can have a slide for seperation til divorce.
    I call 19 months til “working on it”, divorced in 30 months.

      • idk says:

        As soon as baby North hits the age of 2. She will be in the “terrible twos” stage. I hope the nanny quits and they can’t find another one. This way Kim will get to know exactly what it’s like to be an actual mother. She’ll be filing for divorce and handing the kid over to Kanye.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Really people? I think these two are so well suited that it actuallly might last, at least the length of a normal American marriage. They will break up under the following circumstances:
      1. Yeezus is no longer a big name and is therefore embarrassing and a liability,
      2. Yeezus really goes off the deep end and is too much work to handle or he threatens someone,
      3. They both tire of it and decide to amicably dissolve it as one would a successful and profitable business arrangement.

      • Emily C. says:

        The length of a normal, as in average, American marriage is until death. The 50% divorce rate statistics were 1) taken at a time when the divorce rate was much higher than it is now and 2) faulty to begin with, predicated on the idea that the marriage rate remained the same every year. If you google “divorce rate myth”, you’ll see just how wrong it is.

        I do agree that these two have a very good chance of lasting, though. Two egos, perfectly matched.

  12. Loopy says:

    Those pics OMG this woman is nothing short of a glorified pr0n star.

  13. Missy says:

    Someone make them just go away.

  14. MinnFinn says:

    In the top photo of her ass, on the lower right butt cheek you can see what looks like the ridge of an implant, no?

  15. ~Z~ says:

    Those HOOPS better be EXTRA EXTRA LARGE or Kim won’t make it thru…..

  16. TX says:

    Does anyone else find this odd? Why dont they just have a ceremony with their own priest or whatever who they fly in and have what would essentially be a “commitment ceremony” and just get legally married in the US? Unless the French government really puts their foot down on this kind of thing and wont even allow them to have a non-legally binding ceremony, even if they have no intention of filing paperwork in France.

    • Sophie says:

      They probably can, but everything would still be American and the papers could only be filed in America. There might be some room options that would be closed to them if they don’t marry legally in France. And I agree with other readers here – they probably want the French stamp.

    • Nina W says:

      Oh the French, they’re lovely and I love France, but nothing is ever simple and straightforward in legal matters. My Dad was born there and is an attorney and he had to hire a French attorney to deal with his citizenship status because French law is just so French and involved and confusing.

  17. dorothy says:

    Those Thailand pictures looked like she had two flesh colored bowling balls crammed in that bikini bottom.

  18. K.B. says:

    I can’t stand either of these twits, but I love that their cover is projected to sell more than Michelle Obama’s issue and about the same as Beyonce’s issue. I’ve gone from disbelief that they were put on the cover to wanting to buy an issue to help them become one of the top selling issues of the year.

    Maybe this will inspire actual celebrities to run as far away from Vogue as possible. Vogue lowered their standards long before these two were put on the cover. Blake Lively, Rihanna, Beyonce, Lena Dunham, Kate Upton, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift…shall I continue? Half of the people listed can’t even wear clothes that properly fit them. WHY would you put them on the cover of a fashion magazine?

  19. Hautie says:

    Here is what has been my question, through all of this engagement/wedding non-sense. Has Lucifer’s Home Girl, got to see Kayne’s financials yet?

    I am still of the mind that Kayne is not as liquid as he would like everyone to believe.

    Just from that epic home renovation project alone… makes me wonder… does he really have millions to burn? His tour has been hit or miss. And the whole fashion thing seems extremely limited in cash in his pocket.

    How is he financing all of this? Seriously. I don’t see Kim writing checks to the contractors on that screwed up home renovation project.

    And if there is anything that will stop this wedding, let Lucifer’s Home Girl find out he is not near as flush with cash as she thought he was.

    Suddenly Kim takes a vacation to think it over on a “very special episode” of their reality show. Where it ends with Kayne being cut loose. And served with child support papers from the lawyer. All on camera… of course!

  20. Ashley says:

    Well now I’m feeling a little bit better about having to be in America for that week. Did you really expect the French to cave for them? I’m curious to know just how big they are here because I don’t really hear anything about them.

  21. Ag says:

    “A gold Brazilian-style bikini struggled to cope with the impossible task of containing Kim’s curves, instead settling between her cheeks.” Does the Daily Mail have a Pulitzer yet? It should.

  22. truthful says:

    hmmm to Page Six quoting sales of a vogue cover w/no quotes from anyone notable…OK right.

    how many copies are stored in PMK’s dungeon??

  23. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Does she ever. Ever. Ever. Spend more than five minutes without having her picture taken? She just wears me out.

  24. Ashley says:

    Did Keira have to deal with this since she got married in France also?

  25. Mingy says:

    It’s like her whole entire life depends on ppl gawking at her fake ass…everyday f%cking day “look at my ass, please, all I want is for the world to stare at my ass, isn’t it big?? Don’t you wish you had an ass like mine?? I love it, LOOK AT IT! LOOK AT IT!”
    For the record, no shade on big REAL bums, I’ve got a huge ass lol.
    I used to love to loathe her, but now? I. JUST. CAN’T.

  26. GeeMoney says:

    Can they go live in France and never come back? Please?

  27. dorothy says:

    In her effort to garner more attention with the “selfie’s”, the photo-shoots, etc… she has received attention, but with bad results. People are tired of her. She is too exposed in so many ways. Just go away already.

  28. Tiffany says:

    I cannot believe they are actually going through with it. Well, that is how you run the long con. Well played, Kimye. Well played.

  29. becky says:

    Kim lost so much weight! She’s way thinner than before her pregnancy.

  30. Ang says:

    Please her weight loss was performed in a dr office she has had lipo beyond belief. Her fake ass is sooooo gross. I think this does come down to intelligence and she is one of the dumbest individuals, her success is what? Reality Star? Mother? “future wife”( for the third time) of a pop star? I wish she could disappear . That baby is neglected I don’t care how much money they have that child needs attention especially from its mother.

  31. Skins says:

    What pisses me off the most about Kanye is if he didn’t hook up with her, she would probably be off the radar right now, or making pathetic attempts to stay relevant, instead of strutting around like she is the Queen of England. God, every time I see that vapid, stupid face I want to stick icepicks through my eyeballs.

  32. BabyCakes says:

    Thank you! That’s what I’ve been saying all along.

  33. raindrop says:

    Claire Danes looks completely normal “without makeup.” I really don’t understand the hype about celebrities sans makeup – I mean, it’s interesting and refreshing to see that they have flaws, too, but the whole “has she finally gone insane?” caption is just bizarre.

  34. aquarius64 says:

    @truthful – I went to the NY post site that is reporting these numbers about Vogue’s Kimye cover. They don’t give a source for that information. According to the article ‘A Vogue rep said, “[We] never comment on sales figures.” ‘ Please, after all the heat this cover received? NY Post and Vogue can’t back up that claim with a statement from an independent, reliable source that tracks magazine sales? I couldn’t find one on the ‘Net. Kimye’s people could be feeding the Post those figures to look good, and Kim is a big enough narcissist to think she is greater than the first lady and Beyonce’. (Something tells me the Kar-trashian got some major snubs from Queen Bey and FLOTUS and she wanted to outdo them both.) Don’t bank on this marriage to last; her last one lasted only 72 days despite the hoop-la.

    • Candy Love says:

      This +10000

      When ever a magazine, movie, album, tv show ex… has this type of controversy the first thing they do is report the numbers $$ unless it did do as well as they reported. The Vogue issue has been out for 3 weeks now and the sales figures aren’t all over the internet is odd and like you said 1 site has numbers but no source.

      Vogue seems to keep releasing stuff in hopes of gaining public interest. Unfortunately for them the whole Goop and Chris conscious uncoupling happen and took the focus away.

    • Alexis says:

      So the actual numbers aren’t available anywhere? Would be interesting info. Does anyone have it?

  35. GiGi says:

    I love her backside. I, too, am completely mesmerized by big booties, lol! There’s another mom at school pick up with a Kim K butt and I am like a creepy stalker trying to check it out.

    Anyway – how lame is their team that they just recently learned of France’s residency restrictions? I mean, isn’t there someone who should have found that out for them?

  36. Lucky Charm says:

    I’m sad that someone tipped them off to the marriage laws in France. I think it would have been hilarious for them to be filmed showing up for the wedding only to be told that they couldn’t get married yet because they hadn’t followed the law. Oh well, maybe when the film crew leaves, they’ll accidentally take K & K’s passports with them and then they’ll be stuck in France…

  37. Jayna says:

    She’s disgusting. And she thinks she’s an A-lister. LOL She is unbelievably narcissistic. And anyone who has seen photos of her when younger knows she had one-third the ass she has now. Natural. LOL

    Where’s the baby?

  38. rudy says:

    I saw that ‘ass’ in a bikini from behind perched on a fence. It looked bigger than she is. Like an inflatable beach toy gone wild.

  39. idk says:

    It’s funny because Kim never just walks around with a bikini on, not without a cover up. So for sure, those pics were photoshopped before they were put out into the world. Otherwise, we would have seen these pics while they were in Thailand, not a week after they got home. She was in Thailand to do a bikini calendar and film scenes for KUWTK…this calendar should be out by the end of the year, so get ready for more “leaked” pics. Haha I remember a time when Kim said she didn’t want to be seen as a “sex symbol” anymore. Guess she realized THIS is the only way for her to make money.

  40. LisD80 says:

    It’s funny how in one pic she has a completely flat stomach and a tiny dot for a belly button but in the next pic her stomach has some puffiness to it and her belly button is more sunken in.

    Why I wasted a few minutes of my life examining these pics boggles my mind. I am truly ashamed. Lol

  41. Kat says:

    Haven’t read all the comments yet but the 3rd picture…the girl was knocked down by her ass :)

  42. shellybean says:

    This sounds gross, I know….but the way that sand is on her big butt in those bikini pics immediately made me think she had um, intestinal issues, and that that’s the aftermath. I can’t unsee it! Ugh.

  43. Gistine says:

    What a GREAT omen! This marriage is going to last. NOT!!!

  44. Kimberly says:

    All I’m gonna say is that most of the people who bought the magazine are complete IDIOTS!

    As for the wedding, whatever.
    It WILL last longer than her marriage to Kris Humphreys for sure,
    A divorce may be inevitable sometime in the future.
    She might as well start planning for a 4th marriage in the years to come.

  45. KateBush says:

    So do you guys actually think she likes/is proud of her bum?
    I’m asking because I don’t understand how she could not be aware of the amount of derision she gets for it.
    It’s soo huge but yes I think the rest of her is now skinnier than before her pregnancy – I’m convinced that her so called bonding time with ignori after the birth when she was out of the spotlight was really her post surgery recovery time… About a month for a tummy tuck and lipo…

  46. Teresa_Maria says:

    Didn’t her ass have its own Twitter account or am I hallucinating after seeing that photo?
    (Could be both, this thing-with-a-thong will haunt me for days)

  47. LAK says:

    Considering how conventional albight OTT her other wedding was, I think Kanye being in charge here might give us endless ‘avant garde’ fun.

  48. Blackbetty says:

    You mean to tell us there’s people out there who actually bought this issue of Vogue? WTF? Why? Who would waste their money on this issue?

  49. Mylene - Montreal says:

    SHE TRY so much to do her Beyonce with this picture travel … She will never be Beyonce
