Big breaking-news twist in the celeb wedding world today, people: A spokesperson for the mayor of Florence says that Kimye will actually be tying the knot in their fair city!
The couple has apparently rented the Belvedere Fort right next to the Boboli Gardens for their nuptials, which will still take place on Saturday, May 24th. Kanye chatted with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper very recently, actually, about his love for the city:
West said he and Kardashian had come to Florence incognito and believed that their daughter, North, born in June 2013, was conceived “among the Renaissance masterpieces.”
“It was our first honeymoon,” he said of that visit. “It’s one of the most beautiful cities of the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe.”
Well then. In college, 10,000 years ago, I did a semester abroad in Florence and walked by the Boboli Gardens frequently. It is gorg. So, stamp of approval there—but so many questions: What about that invite? Was it a fake? Are they shuttling their confused guests from Paris to Florence?
Obv, we will be back to talk about this again the morning after the wedding.
