Lana Del Rey has revealed that she sang at the wedding celebrations of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for free.

Refuting rumours that she was paid $2.8 million to perform, Del Rey told TMZ that she wasn’t paid to play the event. “I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding,” she commented. She performed at a pre-wedding party on May 23 held at the Palace of Versailles outside of Paris.

The actual wedding was held the following day at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, a 16th-century fortress. Kardashian was walked down the aisle by her stepfather Bruce Jenner as opera star Andrea Bocelli sang.
