Get ready for what promises to be the wedding of the century: rapper Kanye West will tie the knot with fiancée Kim Kardashian in Paris, France on May 24, according to a report.

The “Stronger” hitmaker proposed to the reality TV beauty in extravagant fashion on her 33rd birthday in October, and they previously revealed plans to exchange vows in the City of Love, branding it their “second home”.

They even toured the Palace of Versailles, sparking rumors the royal chateau would serve as their wedding venue, although those claims were subsequently denied by officials at the historic French landmark.

Now editors at Us Weekly magazine claim the couple will wed in Paris in May.

Further details have yet to be revealed, but Kardashian recently said she will be shunning a big ceremony in favor of a “super, super small, intimate” celebration. However West has previously said his wedding will be a big deal, including “fighter jets,” among other things.

Kardashian has been married twice before – she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas in 2000, when she was just 19, and famously ended her second union, to basketball player Kris Humphries, in October, 2011 after just 72 days of marriage. Their divorce was finalized weeks before she welcomed baby girl North with West last summer.
