Los Angeles, Jan 13: Rapper Kanye West wants to go for his honeymoon in space with fiancee-socialite Kim Kardashian. He is ready to pay a reported $1 million per night.
The 36-year-old is obsessed with all sci-fi things and has convinced Kim to celebrate their marriage with an intergalactic holiday, reports contactmusic.com.
“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,” a source said.
“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,” the source added.
Kanye along with Kim wants to go 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 travelling there.
However, the venture has been in the pipeline since 2009 and has so far cost an estimated $500 million. It is due to be completed until 2015 so Kanye, who will shell out $1 million a night for the couple to stay there, will arrange multiple honeymoons with his new bride.
“Kanye is saying this will be their third honeymoon as it won’t be ready for a year. so they’ll have two others before then. They’re multi-millionaires so money is no object,” the source said.
