Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married in Florence, Italy on Saturday, at a landmark called the Forte di Belvedere, which overlooks the city. E! Online says the wedding cost around $2.8 million. SEE PICTURES HERE! The festivities actually began Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. Kim's brother Rob Kardashian arrived in Paris last week with the rest of his family, but he skipped the rehearsal dinner Friday night, then got on a plane for L.A. before the wedding even started on Saturday. Sources say it's because he's ashamed of his weight and didn't want to be in any family photos. Apparently, everyone was trying to talk him down off that ledge and he got defensive to the point that he decided to take off. But that may be the opposite of what happened. Another source says that Rob left because Kim was mad at him for not trying hard enough to lose weight before her wedding. Lana Del Ray was there to perform live. During the dinner, Kanye reportedly commented about all the talented people in the room. Kim remarked that there were also a lot of beautiful people, to which Kanye replied, "Yeah, but Kim's way more beautiful than I am talented." But she wasn't the only performer on hand that weekend. During the ceremony, Andrea Bocelli sang "Con te Partiro" as Kim walked down the aisle. She was escorted by her stepfather Bruce Jenner. Walking in front of them was Kris Jenner with Kim and Kanye's daughter North. They said their vows in front of a huge wall of flowers, kind of like the one Kanye gave Kim for Mother's Day. A source says the vows were, "intimate and spoken softly." But don't worry, Kanye would have his say later on. At the reception, guests sat at a 224-foot marble table overlooking the Florence skyline. The menu included chicken, steak, salmon and pasta followed by a seven-foot wedding cake. There were about 200 guests, including Common, Jaden Smith, magician David Blaine, Tyga, Brittny Gastineau, "12 Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen, Serena Williams, Scottie Pippen, Carmelo and Lala Anthony, Q-Tip and "Girls Gone Wild" scumbag Joe Francis. Beyoncé and Jay Z were no shows. They reportedly spent the weekend in the Hamptons. But Beyoncé posted a picture of Kim, Kanye and North on Instagram, (SEE IT HERE!) along with the caption, "Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family." The couple's first dance was to a mashup of Etta James' "At Last" and Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine" and "Tenderness" which culminated in some live rapping by Kanye. They also danced to John Legend's "All of Me" which Legend performed live. Big Sean also reportedly took the mic at some point. Kris Jenner made a, "big, emotional speech" but Kanye topped her with a 20 minute speech in which he called the Kardashian family, "the most remarkable people of our time." He added that they can, "make the world a better place." He also rambled about being famous, "I am defined by being a celebrity - the world is our altar." He added, "They feel like it's okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an "SNL" spoof. We don't negotiate. We're not like that. We're not stupid." Kim and Kanye are now off on a mini-honeymoon in Ireland without their daughter North. They're expected to attend the wedding of Kanye's stylist next weekend in Prague.
Floyd Mayweather and T.I. got into a big, chair-throwing, all-out brawl at a Fatburger in Las Vegas late Saturday night. The fight was apparently over T.I.'s wife, Tiny. T.I. was upset about some photos that Tiny posted to her Instagram page (SEE IT HERE!) one of Floyd, and one with his daughter, which was taken this weekend. In any event, when they crossed paths at the burger joint, T.I. confronted Floyd and at one point Floyd told T.I. to, "control your b****." That's when things quickly escalated into chaos. As far as we know, no one was hurt except for an employee who was, "slashed" during the fight. It sounds like it was a minor cut though, because the guy refused medical treatment, and wouldn't cooperate with the police. In an interview after the fight, Floyd apologized for referring to Tiny as a b****, "I don't want to say that about Tiny. So I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people. She never been disrespectful to me." He also said that he and Tiny are friends and go way back. He said, "I been knowing Tiny before T.I. I've never slept with her, I never kissed her, never touched her in no inappropriate way." Floyd said T.I. has confronted him before, at a jewelry store in New York and said something about, "These girls trying to play us against each other." As for this weekend, he said that Tiny and a friend came to his daughter's birthday party, and then to another party he threw at a strip club. When T.I. came at him, he said he reminded him that he's a boxer and T.I. responded, "You do it in the ring, I do it in the streets." T.I. hasn't commented on the fight, but he did post a picture on Instagram (SEE IT HERE!) to deny that Floyd gave him two black eyes. He did have a bandaged hand, though.

Charlie Sheen has started a feud with Rihanna after she refused to meet his fiancée, while they were both at the same restaurant on Wednesday. Charlie called her "the Village Idiot" in a long Twitter rant. Rihanna dismissed him as an "old queen" and Charlie kept it going by thanking her for recognizing his "royalty." My favorite no biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and "please kill me now" that I'd never get back. Check out that Charlie's whole Twitter rant right HERE!!
If Tupac Shakur did recognize the shooter who killed him then it's his own fault that his murder is still unsolved. Former Las Vegas police officer Chris Carroll says he had pulled Pac from the car where he'd just been shot multiple times in a drive-by. Carroll says he tried to get Tupac to tell him who the shooter was, asking over and over, "Who shot you? Who shot you?" But Tupac refused to say and replied: "F*** you." After that, Carroll says Tupac lost consciousness and was taken to the hospital, where he was eventually placed on life support. He never said another word.

Before the first "21 Jump Street" movie hit theaters in 2012, Jonah Hill made a bet with Channing Tatum. He said he would kiss a certain, intimate part of Channing's anatomy if the movie grossed more than $35 million. His exact quote was, "I will kiss your tip." Well, the movie grossed $36.3 million, but Channing hasn't cashed in yet. He tells "GQ", "I haven't made him do it yet. For obvious reasons. That's a bad bet to lose, but it's not too good to win, either. But definitely the shame of it would be enjoyable. It's my trump card, for sure. He tries not to bring it up at all costs. Unless he did something horrible to me, I don't know if I could ever cash it in. It would change our relationship forever." Jonah adds, "Channing and I say a lot of stupid stuff when we drink together." And apparently, Channing does love him some hooch. He says, "I probably drink too much, you know. I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess."

The company reached out to Taylor's people but got no response so now they're asking for a piece of the profits. They're also trying to shut down her online store. A statement on her website says, "So this company called "Lucky 13 Apparel" are trying to sue Taylor for an "unauthorised user" of the number 13. How ridiculous is that? How can you copyright a number?" She told MTV News, "I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first No. 1 song had a 13-second intro. Every time I've won an award I've been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter."

Last night on the "Billboard Music Awards" Justin Timberlake was the big winner, taking home seven trophies. Imagine Dragons won five awards, followed by Pharrell, Robin Thicke and T.I., who took home four each. He wasn't there because he's on tour, but he accepted some awards via satellite.

They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
