Are Kim Kardashian & Kanye West actually planning a quiet, no-media wedding?

In Touch Weekly’s cover story this week is all about how Kanye West is totally over the Kardashian thing and he has no interest in marrying Kim. I kind of doubted the story when I was covering it yesterday, and someone sent us a tip about Kanye’s Facebook page in which Kanye might have been talking about how much he was looking forward to becoming a father and how much he loved Kim. Then Kanye deleted everything off of his Twitter feed and he tweeted this:

And in case you’re wondering, the one person he’s “following” is Kim. So what is going down on June 18th? Is that Kim’s due date? Is that the date of her scheduled C-section? Or is it – as I theorized to myself yesterday – the date in which Kanye and Kim will get married? Radar says Kanye has finally set a date! Sort of.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally set a wedding date, and has all the details. After months of will-they-or-won’t-they speculation, the couple is going to tie the knot in a lavish wedding in the Los Angeles area right after the birth of their child, an insider close to reality TV’s first family tells Radar exclusively.

Kim is set to exchange “I do’s” wearing an “ethereal white wedding dress,” the source said, and wants a location “where they can hear the waves and be married under the moon and stars.

“Kim’s choice at the moment is a starlight ceremony in California’s Big Sur,” the insider added, noting that Kanye has signed off on all of the stipulations, as well as signing off on whichever wedding planner she chooses.

But don’t think that Kim is going to be making all of the decisions about the wedding — or in this relationship. Kanye has made it completely clear to Kim that he does not want ANY media at the wedding and they will not sell their wedding photos for profit.

“Instead, Kanye says they should consider a donation to one of Kim’s charities like the Skin Cancer Foundation, or Mattel Children’s Hospital in a deal around the wedding for a short film,” the insider said.

The decision to marry right after the baby is born came after Kim ended her year-and-a-half long battle with ex-husband Kris Humphries. Of course this is all dependent on the paperwork for Kim’s divorce being finalized in time!

The insider said the superstar couple have been talking “about marriage for a long time, so it’s not like Kanye is going to propose and they’ll get engaged — its been something they’ve been looking forward to for a while during the divorce. Now that Kim’s almost a free woman, she wants an immediate wedding — she wants to marry the father of her baby as soon as possible, but the birth must come first.”

Besides preparing for the birth and wedding, Kim has also been feverishly looking for a home with three nurseries, keeping Kanye, who’s been working in Paris, in the loop on “every tiny detail.”

The insider said that Kim showed Kanye “a folder of houses she’s seen and all her recent scans and medical reports. She had a folder for Kanye to take, so he hasn’t missed any of the baby progress or house choices … they’re both getting more and more excited for the baby.”

[From Radar]

IF Kanye agrees to marry Kim, do you think they’ll wait until after the baby is born? I kind of think that if they’re going to do it, they’ll do it shotgun style. I was trying to figure out the exact date of Kim’s divorce dissolution of whatever but I can’t find it. I think she’s going to be “officially” divorced by the first week of June, which means there’s a window of time where she and Kanye can get married and then she’ll give birth.

    If he has that much taste, that’s pretty unbelievable.

  2. Tiffany says:

    I think he is releasing new music on June 18.
    He has never talked about it before and I doubt he would do so now.

    • Faye says:

      Well, he did out Kim as his baby mama at a concert in front of many, many people, so I don’t see him being all coy about his privacy now.

      However, I also don’t see him marrying her. I’ll believe it when I see it.

    • Linda says:

      June 18 falls on a Tuesday, and Tuesdays is usually when new music is released in that industry.

  3. Mela says:

    Isn’t posting the possible wedding date on your twitter baiting for media attention? I think it’s just the due date.

    • PinkG says:

      My guess: Pimp Momma had his Twitter account hacked, made the post, then deleted it.

  4. Yelly says:

    They look SO happy together.

    • Happymom says:

      Have you seen the video from this where he doesn’t help her get out of the car and then stands in front of a store until she opens it for herself. Oh my god. His irritation with her is palpable. I’m no fan of hers-and while I think this is karma-there’s a poor innocent baby being born into this mess.

      • carol says:

        yah they have zero chemistry and dont appear to be in love – what’s the point of getting married?

    • Sarah says:

      In the pictures, it looks like their is NO connection between them, no emotional attachment as if they just happen to be two strangers standing beside each other. Very weird.

  5. JenD says:

    If he’s been secretly flying in for her OB appointments, why does she need to show him all her medical reports and scans? Ugh. She can’t seem to keep her lies straight.

    Maybe she looks so miserable because he won’t allow her to turn their wedding into a publicity stunt like she did with Kris H.

    • Lia says:

      Interesting point. I never believed that he flew from overseas just for dr appts that could easily be discussed over the phone. Some people even use speaker phone during the appts for spouses that can’t be present.

      • Happymom says:

        And other than an ultrasound you pee in a cup and they listen to the baby’s heartbeat. There is no reason for a “call”. If she was actually having a problem pregnancy, there’s no way in hell she’d be flying constantly.

    • Agnes says:

      I cracked up on the “scans”. What the hell does that mean? They must mean “ultrasound”.

      • Lia says:

        @happymom that’s my point exactly there is nothing so important that it warrant a flight. However, people do like hearing the heartbeat and getting assurance from the doc and mom that everything is good. Nothing wrong with that

    • Dawn says:

      Like the rest of us he more than likely doesn’t believe much of what she says either! This baby will be born in June and no later than the 18th but maybe before.

  6. Lucy says:

    What is he wearing?????

  7. judyjudy says:

    I would assume it’s the date of something career-wise. I doubt he’d put up the due date or wedding date unless he wanted to give it away free before PMK tried to sell the info.

  8. Dawn says:

    Oh for god. Do we care? Really? IF they get married quietly it will be the first thing she has ever done in private since she started hanging with Paris (thanks alot for this shit) Hilton. They are both getting boring. Time to move on to fresher people with fresher voices. These two are used up.

  9. truthful says:

    He’s releasing his anticipated new music on June 18th..

    • lw says:

      Of course it is the date of his album release. I don’t think there is a chance in hell he would offer up her exact due date or their wedding date. He’s a famewhore, no doubt. But he has a lot to prove with this album.

      • gogoGorilla says:

        Plus, I think Kanye is pretty much interested only in the life of… Kanye.

      • Lady D says:

        Would be funny if Kim ‘accidentally’ gave birth that day. We all know she loves the spotlight. Or PMK slipped her some pitocin because she’s pissed Kanye announced the baby, costing PMK the only thing she cares about, money.

  10. DanaG says:

    I agree I think it’s the due date and those pictures do not show a man about to marry. Besides Kim can’t keep anything a secret and he would have to leave Paris if he really wants it quiet. Lot’s of red tape to get married in France. So no wedding for these two I actually think he sees the writing on the wall and is trying to show he is at least interested in the baby. That way when they split he can still get good visitation etc. I do think Kim would jump at the chance to get married again but it would be another wreck.

  11. Eli says:

    Does he ever wear anything besides tennis shoes? Talk about needing a makeover….

  12. Lauren Carter says:

    I really can’t imagine Kim being happy with getting married while being pregnant. We all know she’s vain, and I’m not sure Vera will design her gown…

  13. mkyarwood says:

    Nah, that is likely her schedule C date.

  14. dorothy says:

    Another damage control leak from Kris. Do they look like a couple about to get married???

  15. Nicolette says:

    Who is she kidding? A ‘media free’ wedding…..please. She would take a dump on camera if it paid enough. The cameras are like an extension of her at this point.

  16. Swack says:

    I can’t believe she is jumping from one marriage to the next. What an idiot! She obviously doesn’t learn from her mistakes. Also, to get married just because there is a child involved is ridiculous.

  17. OriginallyBlue says:

    I can’t seem Kim getting married while pregnant or still being large from the baby. She needs time to nip, tuck, get lipo and lasered plus whatever else she has done to herself.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Oh, I dunno. If she gets married while pregnant then she has the perfect excuse to be large in her wedding photos.

  18. MonicaQ says:

    His album is dropping on the 18th. That’s it. Married? Pffft. I’ll grow turbines out of my arse cheeks and fly to the moon if they get married on the 18th.

    He wanted a relationship like Jay-Zzzz and Be-yawn-ce but the difference being the latter at least has some talent. You know, when she’s not pulling some Kim Jong Un ish about no one allowed to take her picture and all of that craziness.

    And you think Satan’s Homegirl aka her mama gonna let her *not* sell those pictures? HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. She’ll probably weds a cell phone camera in Kim’s vaginal situation business to film the baby crowning. There is no such think as privacy with this family and a tiny, teeny shred of me understands why Kanye stays away.

    He should’ve wrapped it up. Plain and simple.

    • Dap says:

      “I’ll grow turbines out of my arse cheeks and fly to the moon if they get married on the 18th”.
      OK, now, I REALLY want them to get married ;-D))))

    • Beatriz says:

      Omg your comment is pure gold, cracking up!

  19. Pixie says:

    If Kanye marries Kim (privately or otherwise), I’ll put on a hat for the sole purpose of eating it.

  20. LadyMTL says:

    I also think that his Tweet has to do with his music and not with KK. That said, I can sort of believe that she’d want to get married before the baby arrives if for no other reason than the fact that it wouldn’t be illegitimate.

    Mind you, that would involve her being “fat” at her wedding and I can’t see that happening.

  21. E says:

    Kanye is so much more talented than Jay-z or “I faked my pregnancy” Beyonce. And he actually is really fashion forward & his sneakers are probably very high end here. I believe his new album drops on June 18th…. I hope he doesn’t marry Kim. It’s bad enough he got her pregnant. They always look so miserable together.

  22. janie says:

    I think is album release, it’s always done on tuesday. They are both excited about the baby? How can u tell? She has not mentioned this baby, just how much she hates pregnancy. No media? That’s rich!

  23. Nicole says:

    I think giving a pregnant woman space AND Paris shopping trips is THE BEST way to ensure you’ll stay together.

    She’s rich, sexy, and pregnant with his child. Maybe Kanye is in love with her. Maybe she’s in love with him.

    Maybe we don’t actually know these people, despite having seen them on TV and the correct response to them is not blind hatred for two people who have never done you harm but a shrug and an ‘all the best’.

    • Tasha says:

      Girl want are you smoking.

    • The Original G says:

      It’s not hate at all.

      KIM has monetized every aspect of her body, mind and soul for profit.

      If she doesn’t like the reaction she’s been getting for her famewhoring lately, maybe that’s cause for some personal contemplation.

      Her new statements sound more like her trying to protect her brand. She’s made HERSELF into a tabloid/gossip product. The reaction to her is just the public is eating up the the soap opera she has created and promoted.

  24. Melissa says:

    I think Kim is way too vain to get married pregnant!

    • Diane says:

      Boy, I think you are right about that. He is the only way she can continue to milk the publicity wagon. Interest in Kim on her own is growing old and tired. She needs to continuously change things up for attention since she can’t do it on any talent.

  25. The Original G says:

    What a disaster.

    Kanye’s work has been overshadowed by Kim Bumpamania.

  26. fabgrrl says:

    Is it just me, or does Kim’s face look quite pretty here? A lot better than usual.

    • HappyJoyJoy says:

      Its just you.

      • crazycatlady says:

        LOL ditto. But I guess if the combination of overly injected + pregnancy bloat face is what you consider “quite pretty,” then YEAH!

    • lucy says:

      Ha! Totally JUST YOU.

      I see bags under the eyes and a lumpy bumpy saggy face, despite the puffiness. Even her lips look like untethered balloons.

  27. Diane says:

    There is nothing about this couple that suggests they are in love. I cannot recall a single photo that remotely looks like they care about each other. Kanye looks in pain. Ha! Kharma!

  28. The Original Mia says:

    Hahahahahahahaha! Yeah, no. There will be no wedding. If he’s announcing anything, it’s to do with him, not her or that baby. Probably releasing a single or some new tacky crap for his fashion line.

  29. Elisabeth says:

    a wedding with no paparazzi? who will they look at during the ceremony then?

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Hahahaha! They will bring little cosmetic mirrors with them, & will look at themselves.

  30. Marion says:

    Definitely a music release.

  31. Amanda says:

    Are they even engaged?

  32. gogoGorilla says:

    I don’t think Kim gives a rat’s ass if her baby is “illegitimate” or not (in quotes because does that sort of thing even matter in this day and age?). However, I CAN’T see her getting married while a pregnant giantess, either.

    (Plus, Kanye loves Kanye, so I’m sure the date is related to his new album.)

  33. HappyJoyJoy says:

    This is totally unrelated mainly because I don’t care what they do. Buuuuuuuut. Kims face. It looks deformed… its like her body has no clue where to go because of all the stuff she’s done to it. It looks freaky and unnatural. I can’t handle her face. She looks like the grinch when he was a baby.

  34. dagdag says:

    Well, I guess, even a quiet, no-media wedding like in this case, has nothing to do with marriage.

  35. Maggs says:

    A Wedding Before An Engagement

    wedding 6[Blind Gossip] So there’s a rumor going around that they are planning a wedding. We have just two words to describe this:

    Holy. Sh*t.

    You know that every event in this family’s life is plotted and planned and choreographed and filmed and packaged and sold, right? There is absolutely nothing spontaneous about any major life event. To even think that the family would not plan and capitalize on the engagement process is ridiculous.

    After all, engagements are all about romance and rings and proposals and announcements and parties and publicity and endorsements! The family has absolutely no interest in skipping over that major life event and going straight to a wedding with no gifts and no press and no camera crews and no hoopla.

    We found out that someone has gone way off the reservation, and the family is frantic! There are lots of negotiations and contract renegotiations and arguments and attempts at manipulation and blackmail going on right now. The family’s attempts to contain and control the source are actually backfiring on them. It’s quite the mess, and if all the parties can’t start playing nice together, this fake marriage is going to be an even bigger fiasco than the last one.



  36. jenny says:

    Sounds like more damage control. The pics of the two lovebirds in gay Pareee look like anything but
    marriage. Every time we see the real KimYe we immediately get a report of the oh so happy couple making plans for the future. Kanye would not even touch her so today we are suppose to believe they
    have set a wedding date. Laughable

  37. Bella says:

    A wedding? LOL!He should be making plans to take that baby away from her.

  38. KellyinSeattle says:

    Even if Kayne was happy, you’d never know it…his face always has a permanent scowl; it’s just the way his features are…I really feel sorry for the baby, especially if it’s a girl!!

  39. Ellen says:

    *Scoff* (of disbelief and derision)

  40. G says:

    Lololol she takes him a folder with updates!!!

  41. Meg says:

    Even when my husband is royally pissed off at me he shows me more affection than that, especially now that I’m pregnant! I’m only 5 months but he still goes out of his way to help me, even when he’s pissed at me.

    Shit, even my ex would probably show more concern for me waddling out of a car than Kanye is in these pics.

    I feel bad for the baby already. It’s going to be a show pony in some respects and neglected in others.

  42. Juicy Lucy says:

    If my so called “boyfriend” couldn’t be more considerate of me while pregnant, I would show him the door. I think Kanya was patiently waiting his turn to sleep with Kim and wasn’t expecting her to get pregnant. Yes, he may have been infatuated with her, but infatuation gives way to reality, in this case a family who only lives for the camera. Just because Kanya is a narcissistic jerk, doesn’t mean he couldn’t turn out to be the better parent. I can see Kim using her child for PR purposes while Kanya may want to keep the tyke completely out of the limelight.

  43. Beatriz says:

    If they do get married I hope Kanye is smart enough to get her to sign a damn prenup.

  44. EscapedConvent says:

    I am howling at his Twitter stats: he has almost 9 1/2 million followers, & he’s only following “One.”

    Maybe it’s himself? That’s my first guess.

    Also, do 9 1/2 million people really want to hear what this self-obsessed egomaniac has to say about anything?

  45. HH says:

    EXCUSE ME?!?! Radar says they are getting “more and more excited” about the baby?! HA! Unless I’ve been using the wrong definition of “excited” my entire life, these two don’t look anything remotely close to excited. In recent pictures they don’t even look happy; or pleased; or even satisfied. “Excited”….. Pssssssh!

  46. bridget says:

    Okay, does anyone actually think Kim Kardashian would be okay with getting married when she’s still carrying the baby weight? REALLY?!? No way. There’s no way someone that shallow and narcissistic is getting married when she’s been made fun of for 40 weeks for looking fat – unless Kanye says that’s the only way he’s getting married. This is just the Kardashians trying to control the message so Kim doesnt look so pathetic. Can we agree that this whole pregnancy thing hasnt gone very well for Kim? They probably thought it would be endless good press – starting with weeks of “bumpwatch” to lots of discussions about how cute she is all pregnant and how great her cutting-edge maternity style is, amd of course endless press about her and Kanye as a superstar couple. Instead she’s been ridiculed the whole time. And is it bad that I don’t feel sorry for her one single bit?

    • Nina W says:

      I could not agree more. I think she had a fantasy going about pregnancy and I’m certain she did it for the show and did not really understand what she was signing up for. I think she’s a control freak and everything is out of her control. Her body is changing, her boyfriend is distant and her pregnancy isn’t fun or cute. If she wasn’t such a horrible person I might feel sorry for her.

  47. d b says:

    I don’t think they’ll get married. He’s got a huge ego. He’s #1 and everyone else is last kind of guy. She’s too fame hungry to be shunted aside. They look freakin’ miserable together. Nope, not getting married.

  48. jwoolman says:

    May he’s planning to marry her and then file for divorce 72 days later….

  49. annie says:

    They dont look happy at all. And i do believe Kanyes date is for the release of new music. I dont think he would put up the date of a wedding like that. His whole think is he is trying to get away from the whole kardashian circus because its hurting his brand so there is no way he would tell the press in advance when he is getting married. IF he is getting married which i like most people here rather doubt will happen.

  50. Gigi says:

    When I saw the video of him NOT helping her out of the car and NOT opening the door for her I saw a man who does not give a crap about the mother of his unborn child. I’d feel bad for someone who wasn’t the biggest fame wh0re on the planet. Be careful what you wish for, Kim.

  51. Krusty says:

    They should name their baby HERPES.
    And, their clothing line too, and the name for this gross pairing.

  52. Krusty says:

    Can they have Taylor Swift come to the wedding?
    Can “gay fish” have his french lover come too?
    This is all such KRAP. I am amazed that these people are not complete “persona non grata”, and ignored.

    Better yet, can the many people out in LA who actually have genuine talent and some class and character get a platform to share their original creative work?

  53. mimi says:

    The expression on their faces is more like: he broke up with her.

    I think it’s classy that he is showing the world that he is following only her (as she is carrying his child).

    I hope I’m wrong and that they are together and he is prepared and happy to become a devoted father who actually raises his child.

  54. Quinn says:

    Nothing says “big romance” like giving your absent sperm donor a folder full of pregnancy milestones he’s missed. A lovestory for the ages!

  55. hmm says:

    Kanye seems like a GRUMP with no personality. What the hell could they possibly talk about or have in common besides their love of spending/making money??

  56. hmm says:

    Scheduling c-sections seems really strange and barbaric to me.. It’s a living breathing part of you, not a manicure. And most c-sections are dangerous and unnecessary.

  57. Memphis says:

    That is NOT a look of love.

    He wanted Kim because he was obsessed with her porn tape. Now that she’s having his baby, he’s not interested. IF they get married it’s a marriage Kim is pushing for and I doubt it last much longer than her last one.

  58. Shelly says:

    In that next-to-last picture Kim is looking at him like she is not happy with him AT ALL. She looks a little defeated and over it and even a little wary of him. I think he’s a control freak and maybe she’s sick of being one of the things he controls. I still can’t forget the time when he came to her house/sent a stylist to her house to throw out all of her old clothes so that she could start dressing more “fashionably”. She has never been high fashion, but at least when left to her own devices she usually knew how to dress for her body type and usually looked pretty good.

  59. chalkdustgirl says:

    I realize that Kim is gaining weight during pregnancy which totally affects the face, but PLEASE lay off the tox and fillers! She is beginning to look like a younger, dark-haired version of plastic Joan Rivers! Or, a charachature of herself (sp?) And, while I’m no Kardashian fan, I do believe that Kim was absolutely gorgeous a few years ago and have NO idea why she has fuc*ed with her face so much to the point where most of her natural Armenian beauty has been eliminated.
