French Law Threatens Kim and Kanye’s Paris Wedding

It could be back to the drawing board on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s plans for an early summer wedding in Paris.

The celebrity twosome known as Kimye will reportedly tie the knot on May 24. In all the excitement of selecting the china patterns and floral arrangements that bridal magazines are always yammering about, the couple failed to look into all the legal obligations of booking a wedding in the City of Lights. Obligations like establishing French residency at least 40 days before said wedding.

A difficult feat for a couple who, technically, live in California.

A Kardashian tattle squealed to RadarOnline:

“Kim and Kanye were unaware until recently that France required a residency requirement prior to the marriage. Kanye has an apartment in Paris, but he doesn’t live there full-time.”

A representative with The French Embassy in Washington D.C confirmed as much, telling the glossy: “All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorise the deputy mayor or a city councillor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements cannot be waived.”

Kim, 33, can take her selfie-taking career anywhere, but Kanye is supposed to be in the studio, recording an album.

Sounds like quite the pickle, eh?
