Kim Kardashian

Kept in the Dark About Her Own Wedding

5/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West Wedding PlanningKim Kardashian's wedding is so secret ... even Kim has no idea what's going on ... which is exactly how Kanye wants it.

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ ... Kanye has cut his bride-to-be out of the wedding planning entirely  ... with the goal of unleashing the surprise of the century.  He's planning almost everything.

BUT WE KNOW SOME STUFF:

  -- Kim and Kanye will exchange "I do's" at Versailles
--   Part of the post-wedding celebration will take place at a 16th century fort in Florence
--   The guests have NOT been told specifics about Florence, including where they're staying Saturday night. 
--  The guests don't even know how they're getting from Paris to Florence ... assuming private jet.
--  There is a big second event in Florence, which Kanye is keeping top secret.

Finally, Kanye is trying to keep Kim off her phone and away from the Internet ... good luck with that.

Kanye West

Rage Flare Up with Photog

Don't Talk Lingerie with Kim!

5/20/2014 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Kanye West
 almost let a French photographer ruin his wedding week ... because he nearly blew up when the guy made a crack about lingerie to the bride-to-be, Kim Kardashian.

Kim and Kanye were swarmed by fans and paparazzi while window shopping in Paris Monday ... and as they walked past a lingerie shop one photog blurted out, "Underwears, very beautiful!"

That's when Kanye flashed THAT look. But watch the vid ... this time he holds back from a full eruption. 

But the best moment was when Kanye actually cracked a smile and agreed to autograph a pair of Air Yeezy sneakers for a fan -- only to burst the guy's bubble by telling him his kicks are fake!

Quel dommage.

We busted Rob Kardashian's chops for packing on the pounds -- but the guy IS trying to streamline before Kim's big day ... so we're now told.

Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson is flying to Paris to train Rob and Khloe Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, he tells TMZ.  Gunnar says Rob was training 5 times a week, but then slowed to twice a week 2 weeks ago because of other commitments.

As Peterson says, [I'm} the gatekeeper of Rob's workouts, not the gatekeeper of his life."

0518-kim-k-kanye-icecream-ass-pcn-01Kanye West treated himself to his two favorite things Sunday ... ice cream and Kim Kardashian's amazing backside -- which is in tip top shape for her upcoming wedding day.

Kanye and Kim grabbed a cone Sunday in Paris after she arrived in town with baby North.

Kim flashed her engagement ring for photogs ... and then she gave 'em the same rearview wedding guests will see walking down the aisle -- and it's glorious.

Congrats, Kanye.

Kim and Kanye's Wedding

Surrounded By Famous Bushes

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding has everyone at the Palace of Versaille in hush-hush mode ... but after some digging, we got to the bottom of what's going down at Louis XIV's crib.

The Palace of Versailles has 5 spaces available for events ... but our sources say Kim's tying the knot in a place only a few others have occupied -- which we believe is the palace's Orangerie.

The Orangerie has been the backdrop for a few huge nuptials ... including one of the most expensive ever.  Steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal rented the space for his daughter's ridiculously lavish wedding at a cost of $141,000.

It's around 350 years old, with two huge staircases -- famously named the "One Hundred Steps.  The world-famous garden is filled during the summer with more than 1,200 exotic trees.  Louis XIV said the garden was as important to him as the castle itself.

Coincidentally, the Orangerie opens for events on May 20th ... just days before the couple will tie the knot.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Getting Married Versailles
Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West have zeroed in on one of the most opulent places in the world to tie the knot -- the Palace of Versailles outside Paris.

There are reports that the couple will tie the knot in Florence, Italy ... in fact the Mayor's office even went on record confirming that. 

But sources familiar with the wedding plans say it will absolutely take place at Versailles, following nearly a week of parties all around France.

A total of 3 French kings lived there and the palace and gardens are world famous to this day.

Versailles is where Louis XIV famously lived in the 1600s.  It's also where Marie Antoinette lived with her hubby Louis the XVI and was trashed for her lavish lifestyle.  She famously said "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche" -- translated, "Let them eat cake," referring to the common folk who bitched at her.

We gotta say ... it would be slightly awesome if Kim said it during the reception.

Kim Kardashian

Decked Out in White ...

But It's Just the Bridal Shower

5/10/2014 12:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510-kim-k-wedding-shower-splash-01Kim Kardashian put on a white dress this afternoon in Beverly Hills, but it wasn't to marry Kanye West ... it was just for her bridal shower.

As TMZ first reported, the only thing holding up the Kimye wedding now is the prenup. According to our sources, the pair should sign on the dotted line this week, opening the door for the wedding ... which we're told would take place around Memorial Day.

Plan your schedules accordingly. Not that any of us are invited ...

Prenup Holding Up Wedding

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian Kanye West Prenup
Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West can't get married, because their prenup is still being hashed out ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Kim and Kanye tell TMZ ... the prenup won't be signed until next week -- probably Wednesday at the earliest.  We're told the marriage will NOT take place until both sign on the dotted line.

Our sources say -- unlike Kim's prenup with Kris Humphries -- the current negotiations are friendly ... there's no fighting.  We're told there's just a lot to work out, and it got complicated by the fact that Kanye recently changed management.

As for the wedding ... it's looking like Paris ... around Memorial Day.

Kim and Kanye

Touched by Famous Booger

5/7/2014 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

050714_kim_k_kanye_west_metgala_launchFormer Vogue honcho Andre Leon Talley is definitely our pick of the week.

Talley dug deep during his interview with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West during Monday night's Met Gala ... and then touched the golden couple with his fool's gold.

It's unclear how much time passes before the dig and the touch, but Talley is clearly seen touching Kim's shoulder as he kisses her goodbye ... before using the same hand to shake Kanye's.

Kim did seem a little nasally after the interview.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Getting Married

Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West are doing something that seems to go against their DNA ... getting married PRIVATELY and without fanfare, and we're told it's going to happen this week.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... they already have a marriage license and plan to tie the knot before the week is out.

We're told it's strictly on the QT ... so much so they got a "confidential" marriage license so no one officially knows.

Sources tell us ... with a confidential license, K&K won't have to appear publicly at a courthouse to get married ... instead, an official from the court will actually go to them and perform the ceremony privately in their home.

And then, in about a month -- after they're already legally married in California -- we've learned Kim and Kanye will hold a lavish, blow-out wedding ceremony in Paris.

They got engaged on Kim's birthday ... October 21.

Kanye West

Calls Out NBA, NFL Stars

I Defeated All Of You in Battle for Kim's Ass

Kanye West I Won

Kanye West is spiking the football ... bragging that he defeated NBA and NFL players like Reggie Bush and Kris Humphries to win the rights to bang Kim Kardashian

West just appeared on Future's new single, "I Won" -- and raps about his most prized conquest, Kim ... saying, "I want to dip that ass in gold, I want to dip that ass in gold."

Then comes the smack talk -- "I made it over NBA, NFL players ... So every time I score it's like the Super Bowl."

Kanye West I Won

K's obviously referring to Bush, Humphries and NFL wide receiver Miles Austin -- who all dated Kim and all happen to be pro athletes. 

It's not the first time K's gone after one of Kim's exes -- he ripped Humphries in a song called "Cold" -- when he bragged that Kris was lucky K didn't get his pal Jay Z to drop him from the Nets.

Re-Enters the Danger Zone

Cool with Paparazzi

3/25/2014 9:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

032514_kim_kanye_launch_v2 Kanye West was in his danger zone last night (LAX) .... surrounded by his greatest anger trigger (paparazzi) … but he went through without incident.

Ye and Kim Kardashian arrived at the airport and were met by a slew of paps. First, our guy asked if the couple had seen Seth Rogen's parody Vogue cover.  A bunch of other questions were hurled, but Kanye stayed cool.

He really doesn't have an option.  He's on probation in the LAX assault case and ordered to undergo anger management therapy.

But something else happened.  Some random people screamed out his music sucks, and "make me rich!"  Maybe they knew ... Kanye paid one of his assault victim's more than $250K for a smack to the face, so he established a going rate.

A Kelly Blue Book for assault.  Who knew?

James Franco & Seth Rogen

We're More Vogue

Than Kim and Kanye

3/22/2014 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0322_franco_rogan_cover
James Franco and Seth Rogen have improved the Vogue cover with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ... although they missed one slight detail.

Rogen tweeted the cover -- we're guessing it's photoshopped -- with Seth playing bitch.  We might add, not an unattractive bride.

They almost had us fooled ... but then we looked at in the vicinity of the ring and, well, you don't get that from a Hawaiian vacation.

As you recall ... the duo hilariously spoofed Kimye in November with their music video "Bound 3."

It was bound 2 happen.
