Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to wed in a highly secretive ceremony this week

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are allegedly getting married this week.
The reality star and her rapper fiancé were rumoured to be having a lavish wedding extravaganza in Paris next month in front of all their family, friends and celebrity acquaintances, but TMZ is now reporting the couple are going to break with expectations by holding a highly secretive ceremony in the next few days.
Sources told the gossip site the couple already have a marriage licence and intend to get hitched before the week is out.
Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36 - who have 10-month-old daughter North West together - are so intent on keeping their nuptials private that they have secured a "confidential" marriage licence so no one officially knows.
However, the lovebirds want to make up for their minimalist big day with an extravagant bash in the days following the event.
This marks a big turnaround for Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim, who wed basketball player Kris Humphries live on TV in August 2011 following a 90-day engagement.
The star-studded affair took place in Montecito, California, and was filmed for a two-part, four-hour TV special on E! called Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event.
The couple called it quits after just 72 days of marriage, with Kim citing "irreconcilable differences".
