West ‘rejected by Del Rey’
Lana Del Rey reportedly rejected Kanye West’s request to perform during his proposal to Kim Kardashian.
The 36-year-old rapper asked Kim to be his wife during an over-the-top proposal AT&T Park in San Francisco earlier this month while an orchestral version of Lana’s hit Young & Beautiful blasted over the speakers.
According to Radar, Kanye wanted Lana there in person to sing the track, one of Kim’s favorites, but the songstress turned down his offer.
“Lana politely declined, and didn’t give any reason for not being able to perform. It was a very firm no from Lana and her camp,” a source said.
“Kanye did try to push it, but didn’t get anywhere. Kanye decided to hire an orchestra to perform the song for Kim, and he was much happier with how it turned out.”
Kim recently gushed about how she was taken by “complete surprise” by the proposal on her October 21st birthday.
Her family was present to congratulate the couple, but even her closest loved ones said they thought the grand affair was to celebrate Kim’s 33rd year.
“Complete surprise. I truly had no idea,” Kim recently told reporters.
“I was shaking the whole time. It was like an out of body experience.”
The couple, who share four-month-old daughter North, are now said to be planning a lavish Italian wedding, according to British magazine New.
The outlet claims the ceremony will take place next May after Kanye’s tour is over and the weather is a “perfect balmy 75 degrees”.
This will be Kim’s third time down the aisle, after her failed marriages to basketball player Kris Humphries and music producer Damon Thomas.
