PARIS (AP) — Working out, shopping, getting together with family — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are doing it all in Paris this week.

Could they be readying for a rumored weekend wedding extravaganza? The rapper and reality TV star aren’t saying. But they’ve gathered quite a crowd in the French capital, including Kardashian’s mother, grandmother and sisters.

In Italy, the Florence mayor’s office says the pair will wed and host a reception at a fort there Saturday.

Back in France, the Chateau of Versailles says it’s hosting a special visit for the couple and their guests Friday night. Kardashian representative Ina Treciokas says that’s a fabrication but isn’t commenting further.

West proposed to Kardashian on her 33rd birthday in October, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion. No word on whether the ceremony will include “fighter jets,” as West previously promised. It will reportedly including hundreds-of-thousands of dollars worth of performances and luxuries including a $160,000 yacht.
