Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s seemingly never-ending engagement is just days away from ending as reports claim they will officially tie the knot next weekend. #SaveTheDate
According to reports, KimYe’s highly-anticipated wedding date is confirmed for May 24 in Italy.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry in Florence, Italy, on May 24. The power couple will tie the knot in the 16th century Belvedere Fort, a spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office told the Associated Press. The couple rented the fort, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for €300,000 ($410,000), said Elisa Di Lupo, and a Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony.

Heading into the weekend, Mr. West revealed his daughter North may have been conceived in Italy.
“I adore Florence. I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito. I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces. It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world–for me the most beautiful in Europe.” (La Nazione)
The mega rap star also spoke on his love for fiancée Kim Kardashian and possibly putting together a new LP influenced by the country.
“I consult her on elegance and what I wear. And she does the same for me. Today as a musician I like to dress in a less showy way than in the past. I am composing a whole album, Made in Florence.” (La Nazione)
Some recent reports claimed KimYe were expected to trade vows in Italy.
Au Revoir, France…Buongiorno, Italy? A new report says Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will tie the knot in Florence, Italy, and not, as previously thought, in Paris, France.
