Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning a secret wedding days before their ceremony in Paris.
The superstar couple are set to tie the knot this summer, but their plans for Parisian nuptials could fall through due to French laws which require foreign citizens to live in the country for 40 days before they tie the knot.
The Sun newspaper reports that although Kanye West has owned an apartment in the city for three years, it's not his main home and so the local mayor will make the final decision.
An insider said: ''They couldn't face the humiliation of the wedding being cancelled at the last minute.
''So they've decided to get married behind closed doors in Los Angeles before they fly out to France.''
It is said the actual union will now take place in front of a couple of witnesses in an office belonging to the Kim's mother Kris Jenner.
According to recent reports, the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has started ''wearing a corset'' to bed in order to look her best for the Parisian ceremony.
A source claimed: ''Kim wants he figure to look absolutely perfect on her wedding day. Wearing a corset at night is extremely uncomfortable but has a proven record of results, and with six weeks to go, Kim is up for anything.''
