Kim Kardashian 'not classy' enough for Palace of Versailles wedding

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were reportedly "not classy" enough to get married at the Palace of Versailles.

The reality TV star, 33, and her rapper fiancé, 36 - who got engaged in October - were keen to hold their wedding at the royal château in France, but their request was firmly declined because officials believed the couple were too glitzy for the French landmark.

However, despite having their multi-million-pound offer rejected, the pair - who have seven-month-old daughter North together - still paid a visit to the luxury venue during a break to Paris over the weekend in the hope of winning the approval of directors while face-to-face.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were hoping to persuade officials during their visit.

"But ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no. They will now be scouting private estates and chateaux in the region."

A number of rooms within the mansion can be hired for up to 600 people and was once used by the former French president Nicolas Sarkozy for his marriage to Carla Bruni, as well as by Syrian billionaire Wafic Said, who paid a staggering £84 000 to hold his daughter's nuptials at the venue in 2012.

However, it was suggested earlier this week that officials refused Kim and Kanye's request to wed there because they were concerned about the disruption the nuptials could cause.
