Kim Kardashian feels like her wedding "might be spinning out of control."
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is set to marry rapper Kanye West in a lavish ceremony in Paris this summer, but is reportedly worried his artistic plans for their special day are over the top.
"He's sometimes even forgetting to involve Kim in the meetings with the wedding planner. She feels like the whole thing might be spinning out of control. It's just insane. Kanye has basically billed it as ... breaking the boundaries of what to expect when it comes to a wedding. This will be the event of the year. Think fashion runway, stage show performance. Think Avant-garde. Think nothing like you've ever seen. Kanye's saying 'This is a concept event based on a wedding,'" said a source close to the 33-year-old beauty.
The "New Slaves" hitmaker, who has an eight-month-old daughter North with his fiancee, also wants to invite lots of famous faces from the world of fashion to their nuptials, including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour, who allegedly banned Kim from attending the Met Ball in New York in 2012.
"Write that motherf*****g headline when you try to make me look like a maniac or an animal, because you afraid of interracial relationships, because you afraid of the future, because you afraid of a rapper that was raised by two educated parents."
- At a recent concert of his, Kanye West argues that the tabloids are after him for being in an interracial relationship with Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to turn their wedding into a week-long event.
The rapper and his reality TV star fiancee - who got engaged in October - are reportedly set to tie the knot in a lavish ceremony in Paris in May that will feature on Kim's reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
According to The Sun newspaper, the couple, who have eight-month-old daughter North West, have hired wedding planners who are trying to line-up singers Lady Gaga and Fergie to perform, alongside music legend Stevie Wonder and Wu-Tang Clan. The huge event is also rumored to feature fire-dancers, acrobats and fireworks and will have its own currency for guests to spent at a Vegas-style casino.
Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36, met Gaga in Paris and are said to be "desperate" to persuade the "Applause" hitmaker to perform because they are both fans of her music and she was the first artist who was asked to be involved.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to honeymoon in Italy.
The couple are set to tie the knot in a lavish ceremony in Paris in May that will feature on Kim's reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and while their eight-month-old daughter, North West, will be involved in the wedding, the rapper wants to have a romantic holiday with his new wife alone afterwards.
"Kanye has made it clear to Kim he doesn't want North to come with them on their honeymoon. She will most likely stay behind at their apartment in Paris with her baby nurses," a source said.
The 33-year-old brunette beauty, who is planning to get pregnant again as soon as she ties the knot, is eager to return to Venice, as North was conceived there. "Kim wants to go back to Venice, where North was conceived so they can start expanding the family. Kim hates to leave the baby behind, but will definitely need down time after the wedding," an insider said.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have brought forward their wedding date.
The couple, who have an eight-month-old daughter, North West, have decided to tie the knot in Paris, France in May instead of July because they are so excited to get married.
A source told Us Weekly magazine that the 33-year-old reality TV star and the "Yeezus" rapper, 36, want their daughter to be heavily involved in the ceremony. "North will have a large role in the wedding!" an insider said. Another friend said that the couple's wedding plans are well underway and they will have "lots of events leading up to the big day" for their guests.
However, Kim, who was married twice before, is said to have been very reluctant to have a lavish ceremony and Kanye is the driving force behind the event. "Kim isn't totally pumped about a huge wedding. But she's going along with it," one insider said.
While he may be fighting with his Kim Kardashian as to whether or not their daughter North will appear on reality TV, Kanye West at least won't have to worry about facing assault charges anymore.
The Los Angeles District Attorney has decided not to go forward with prosecuting the "New Slaves" rapper over an alleged assault that occurred earlier in the month. Criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten - who is not involved in Kanye's case - speculated that this outcome could happen due to the fact that the alleged victim failed to show up for a follow-up interview with authorities: "If they don't have a cooperative victim, the case is harder to prosecute. If you have no victim, it would most likely get dismissed."
The alleged incident happened in Beverly Hills on January 13th, where Kanye reportedly responded (with his fists!) to a young man who was spewing racial slurs at the paparazzi and Kim Kardashian when she arrived to meet her fiance.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have asked Lady Gaga to sing at their wedding.
The couple - who have a seven-month-old daughter North - are expected to marry in Paris, France in the summer and it is said they are keen to have the "Applause" hitmaker perform at the upcoming nuptials.
"Kim and Kanye met up with Gaga in Paris. They were desperate to get the star's involvement, which is why she's the first person to be asked. She's ideal for them because Kanye has always been a fan of her style and performance art. But also, Kim loves her music, so it's one they can instantly agree on," a source said.
The two stars will have to keep searching for a venue for the wedding though, after they were deemed "not classy" enough to get married at the Palace of Versailles. "Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were hoping to persuade officials during their visit. But ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm non. They will now be scouting private estates and chateaux in the region," an insider said.
Kim Kardashian has decided to hire a new wedding planner.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star turned to her mother Kris Jenner's close friend Sharon Sacks to organize most of her lavish events in the past, including her wedding to Kris Humphries in 2011, but she and fiance Kanye West want to go in a ''different direction'' for their wedding this summer.
"Kim and Kanye have decided not to use Sharon Sacks as they want to try a different direction from her usual style," a source told E! News.
Sharon also planned Kim's baby shower last June, her sister Khloe Kardashian's wedding to her now estranged husband Lamar Odom in 2009, and multiple Kardashian/Jenner birthday parties including her Kylie Jenner's sweet sixteen bash in August.
The couple are currently in Paris together, where they are viewing a number of potential venues for their nuptials. "They are going to spend a few days looking at weddings venues in and around Paris. They are also going to do some shopping. They are really excited to find the right place for their nuptials. They are looking at a summer wedding," a source said.
Reality star Kim Kardashian will soon see if the third time's the charm when it comes to marriage this summer.
The 33-year-old appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday and spilled some details on her upcoming wedding to Kanye West - to whom she became engaged last October: "We honestly haven’t picked a date yet... We said that when we were on our trip skiing this New Year’s that we were going to pick the date and the location, and that still hasn’t happened... We know we want it in the summer time but we just, we’ve got to figure that out."
Kim also revealed that the event would occur "somewhere out of the country," lending some credibility to those rumors about the socialite wanting to marry at Versailles.

Kanye West wants to go on honeymoon in space.
The "Bound 2" hitmaker is "obsessed" with all things other-worldly and has convinced his fiancee Kim Kardashian - with who he has six-month-old daughter North - to celebrate their marriage with an intergalactic holiday.
"Kanye is obsessed with space and anything sci-fi - he's shot many spaceship-themed videos and he even considered training as an astronautical engineer. Now he's fixated on the idea of honeymooning in space. Apparently, Kim wasn't keen at first but Kanye has talked her round and there's even talk it will be chronicled on her reality show," a source said.
Kanye wants to check himself and Kim into the CSS Skywalker, an inflatable station being created by Bigelow Aerospace which will float 250 miles above Earth and requires guests to undergo three months of astronaut training before traveling there.
