New reports have said that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding will 'absolutely' take place at the Palace of Versailles in France and not Florence in Italy, as was recently suggested.

It was previously reported that the pair would be getting hitched at 16th century villa Belvedere Fort on May 24 by BBC Newsbeat, however, US gossip site TMZ has nixed those suggestions, stating that the pair will wed in lavish Versailles, following a week of parties around France.

James Franco recently claimed that Kanye West invited him and Seth Rogen to perform their parody of his song 'Bound 2' at his upcoming wedding. The actors filmed a spoof version of West's video for the song, which featured the rapper and his fiancée riding a motorbike through the desert while locked in a passionate embrace. The spoof version saw Franco and Rogen kissing and went viral.

Speaking on ABC's The View, Franco revealed that he and Rogen had received the offer from the couple ahead of their wedding, where he also confirmed that the nuptials would be held in Versailles: "Kim loved the video, and we didn't hear back from Kanye, so we kind of felt like, 'He's not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he's not going to say anything.' But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone," said Franco. "We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it! He wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding at Versailles."

Earlier this year it was reported that West had cancelled an Australian tour in order to finish work on his new album, the follow up to 2013's 'Yeezus'.
