Kimye planning week-long nuptials with star-studded wedding singers

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to turn their wedding into a week-long event.

The rapper and his reality TV star fiancée - who got engaged in October - are reportedly set to tie the knot in a lavish ceremony in Paris in May that will feature on Kim's reality series 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

According to The Sun newspaper, the couple, who have eight-month-old daughter North West, have hired wedding planners who are trying to line-up singers Lady Gaga and Fergie to perform, alongside music legend Stevie Wonder and Wu-Tang Clan.

The huge event is also rumoured to feature fire-dancers, acrobats and fireworks and will have its own currency for guests to spent at a Vegas-style casino.

Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36, met Gaga in Paris and are said to be "desperate" to persuade the 'Applause' hitmaker to perform because they are both fans of her music and she was the first artist who was asked to be involved.

The pair will reportedly spend their honeymoon in Italy, where North was conceived, and Kim is planning to get pregnant again as soon as they get married.

Meanwhile, Kim says Kanye is a "hands-on dad" but admits he isn't keen on changing North's nappies.

The brunette beauty said: "He's not a diaper kind of guy. And that's okay. But he would if it was an emergency."
