Kanye West to be Married in December

Kanye WestSinger Kanye West has been engaged for awhile, but plans to tie the knot by the end of this year. Though the original plan wasn’t for West and his fiancée Alexis Phifer to be wed this month, everything changed upon the rapper’s mother’s untimely death.

Donda West underwent routine plastic surgery in mid-November, which tragically resulted in her death. Mrs. West’s last wish, however, was for her son to settle down. Kanye and his bride-to-be plan to do just that.

A friend of the family says of Kanye, “His mother’s sudden death brought into focus just how short life really is. Kanye doesn’t want to wait any longer to make Alexis his wife. He believes that this is what his mom would want him to do.”

Fortunately, Donda made her feelings about Phifer known before she passed on calling Phifer “a very outstanding young woman,” and adding, “I can’t think of one negative thing I would say about her—even in private.”

No details regarding West’s December-set wedding have been released to date. In spite of the sad events surrounding their big day, we hope Kanye and his soon-to-be bride enjoy their wedding and holiday season. Cheers!
