Kanye West kind of set himself up to produce the wedding of the year when he proposed to Kim Kardashian in elaborate fashion last October, so new reports that the rapper is planning an equally lavish honeymoon in space hardly seems as bizarre as it sounds.
According to sources, the Bound 2 hitmaker is considering whisking fiancee Kim off to space on a no expenses spared adventure on board the CSS Skywalker.
“Kanye is obsessed with space and anything sci-fi – he’s shot many spaceship-themed videos and he even considered training as an astronautical engineer. Now he’s fixated on the idea of honeymooning in space,” the insider revealed to The Enquirer.
While the 36-year-old star is said to have been enthusiastic about the voyage from the start, mum-of-one Kim reportedly took a little persuading before coming around to the idea.
The source added: “Apparently, Kim wasn’t keen at first but Kanye has talked her round and there’s even talk it will be chronicled on her reality show.”
Information on Kim and Kanye’s wedding plans so far have been kept top secret with recent claims the couple plan to tie the knot at Vesailles, France being rubbished. However, close sources have revealed it’s set to be a massive affair.
So what better way to top off their nuptials than taking an unorthodox trip to space – which is reported to likely set Kanye back $1 million a night. Ouch!
The source added: “Kanye is saying this will be their third honeymoon as it won’t be ready for a year. So they’ll have two others before then. They’re multi-millionaires so money is no object.”
