K *anye West *and *Kim Kardashian *are said to be planning a secret wedding, days before their ceremony in Paris.
The superstar couple are set to tie the knot on May 24, but their plans for Parisian nuptials could fall through because of French laws which require foreign citizens to live in the country for 40 days before they tie the knot.
The Sun newspaper reports that although West has owned an apartment in the city for three years, it's not his main home and so the local mayor will make the final decision.
"They couldn't face the humiliation of the wedding being cancelled at the last minute," an insider said.
"So they've decided to get married behind closed doors in Los Angeles before they fly out to France."
It is said the actual union will now take place in front of a couple of witnesses in an office belonging to the Kardashian's mother *Kris Jenner *.
Meanwhile, the reality starlet is reportedly refusing to tell her friends where she is getting married until they arrive in Paris.
A source told HollywoodLife.com Kardashian, 33, "has not sent out any invites yet" because she wants to keep the location under wraps for as long as possible.
The insider said 90 guests will soon receive a card printed with "a date and Paris" and will only find out where the couple will exchange vows when they check in to their chosen hotel in the city.
