Kanye: I’m a Kardashian!
Kanye West considers himself a Kardashian after his marriage to Kim on Saturday.
He and Kim tied the knot at a highly-exclusive private ceremony at the Forte di Belvedere o di San Giorgio Firenze in Florence on Saturday night.
At the reception, Kanye is said to have given a long toast, where he talked about the love he has for his bride and her family.
“It’s amazing to look around this room. There are so many talented people,” he said, according to UK newspaper The Sun. The musician’s 18-minute speech was apparently littered with four-letter words and at one point he is said to have yelled: “F*** y’all, I’m a Kardashian!”
The weekend started off in Paris, with a pre-wedding party at the Palace of Versailles. Guests were then flown to Florence for the ceremony itself.
Kim reportedly walked down the aisle in a Givenchy dress as Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli sang, and she and Kanye exchanged their vows in front of a wall of wall of white chrysanthemums flown in from France.
There were reportedly plenty of celebrity guests, including John Legend (who sang at the reception), Chrissy Teigen, Brad Pitt, and Bruce Springsteen. Fans flocked to the venue in hopes of seeing Justin Bieber, who was rumoured to be in attendance.
Kim and Kanye’s first dance was said to be At Last by Etta James, followed by Otis Reading’s These Arms of Mine and Try a Little Tenderness. The guests also danced to Shirley Bassey’s Diamonds Are Forever and Beyoncé’s Drunk In Love.
One person who was not present was Kim’s brother Rob, who left Europe on Friday night after allegedly getting into a fight with his family.
