The couple have reportedly discovered that French law requires at least one of them to remain in France for at least 40 days before the wedding.
A source told the website: ‘Kim and Kanye were unaware until recently that France required a residency requirement prior to the marriage. Kanye has an apartment in Paris, but he doesn’t live there full time.’
The French Embassy in Washington D.C told Radar: ‘All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorise the deputy mayor or a city councillor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements cannot be waived.'
