Kanye West

Marriage Proposal

Coming to Kardashian Show Near You

10/22/2013 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West pulled out all the stops when he proposed to Kim Kardashian last night ... paying the orchestra members a relative fortune ... all while cameras were rolling.

A member of the orchestra tells TMZ ... she was paid 4 times what she usually gets for such a gig -- members snagged up to 1k each.

She says no one got wind of Kanye's plan until 2 days before the event.   A contractor reached out to a bunch of musicians in the area.  But here's the thing ...The orchestra members kept the secret for a full 2 days.  They did sign non-disclosure agreements, but you know how that works ...

The woman also tells us ... multiple cameras were rolling during Kanye's proposal, so there's plenty of material for the Kardashian reality show.  We're told Kanye has final approval over whether it goes on the show or not.

As for the event ... she says Kanye was "very hands on."

Dear Kanye,

PLEASE marry her and take her away so we never have to see or hear from her again.

Any bet on how long the marriage will last?

I think this engagement/marriage/divorce is going to be such a fun ride! Kanye West is stuck with the Kardashian family, and Kim is stuck with Kanye West! Every man unlucky enough to fall into the K-trap ends up with his balls chopped up into little pieces, and Kanye's are the next ones on the old chopping block! I think this Kim/Kanye union is karma at it's best!

because if a Kardashian does anything and it is not filmed, then it did not really happen....

Well of course there are camera's, Kangaye got a ridiculous discount on his ring as well, and since there are camera's, it looks like this is just an orchestrated E! show, and publicity I am so not interested, I think everyone has HUMPED the Shark, not JUMPED it, they HUMPED it, time to fade away,

That's funny they got engaged just when 2 marriages are going down the drain. Just one question whats going on with her 2 sisters who entered the nightclub I wish the authorities would charge them already? Also where was there parents when this was going on?

Obviously Kanye did not pay for any of this - all the props were paid for by the "tank" show...

Wow ...    

Well there it is there. I almost said that was kind of cool of him to do, until learning all of the cameras are there. More scripted "reality" tv for ya. Umm, best wishes? I think Kim really needs to consider looking at Kanye for his personality and character and not his wallet. And vice versa. If they stay married for any length of time, it will be solely to save face from the public - like PMK and Bruce.

WHAT ABOUT NORTH ? It's all about them and Baby North could go to HELL without a Baptizm.
Kim was born to an Orthodox Christian Father and a Roman Catholic mother, so this means she is a Christian.
Babies should be baptized because this is what makes them Christians. If they die unbaptized they will GO TO HELL !
