Kanye West wants to build Kim Kardashian West her own church.
The ‘No Church in the Wild’ hitmaker, who married the 33-year-old beauty in Italy in May, is reportedly planning to create a dramatic $5 million cathedral for the reality TV’s family, so they can host future weddings and baptisms there away from prying eyes.
A source told the National Enquirer: ”They want somewhere that weddings and baptisms and family funerals can take place for years to come.
”But Kanye being Kanye, it’s going to be ludicrously over the top.”
The ‘Yeezus’ rapper is a huge fan of the famous unfinished cathedral La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, which has been under construction since 1882.
The insider added: ”Kanye has visited the church several times, and it takes his breath away every time. He’s always wanted something similar for his own family.
”He sees it as a monument to him and Kim that will become a major landmark. He says everyone will want to see it, like the Hollywood sign of the Empire State Building.
”He wants this church to include a chapel as a tribute to his mom, along with a stained glass window featuring him, Kim, and their daughter, North.”
The source said: ”He’s already set aside $5 million to get the work started and plans on doing a series of shows to help fund the construction.
”He’s also considering starting an online appeal so that fans can donate to the building fund.
”Kim and her mom, Kris, are thrilled that Kanye is doing this for the family.”
