"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

According to the worldwide rumour mill – otherwise known as the internet – Kim Kardashian is now Mrs West.

In an uncharacteristic display of privacy, the 33-year-old reality star is said to have quietly obtained her marriage license ahead of her wedding to Kanye West on May 24. “Kim and Kanye are now married on paper,” a source told Life & Style. “They got their license in California over the past few days. Kim and North are on their way to NYC now.”

But don’t go sending your congratulations too soon as there are also reports claiming otherwise. A source close to the couple told E! News that Kimye definitely aren’t hitched yet. Another source says that they will “have a civil ceremony to acquire their marriage license” in the US before their wedding in Paris.

Kim’s publicist is doing nothing to confirm or deny rumours saying, “There is no statement and no comment on wedding conjecture.” Despite the sudden vow of silence, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has spoken about her impending nuptials on numerous occasions. “We will be getting married … in Paris,” she told Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year. “We love it there. It’s like our second home, we spend so much time there.”

Kim went on to say that her groom-to-be is getting stuck into wedding planning. “I know they think or they say that the guy doesn’t care or just shows up, but Kanye really cares and he’s really passionate about it, so that makes my job so much easier,” she swooned. “He knows what he wants and I love that about him.”

There’s speculation that the wedding venue will be France’s Palace of Versailles and that the bride will wear a dress designed by Riccardo Tisci, but again, team Kimye are staying tight lipped.

It seems that, rather being a media circus, Kim is keen for her marriage to be special. She recently told Vogue, during that controversial wedding cover shoot, that the wedding will be “intimate. Two hundred people — just all of our closest friends.” We just don’t know what to believe anymore Kim.
