After months of speculation, the Daily Mail has revealed that Kanye West and Bianca Censori have secretly married. The pair married in California with a clandestine license, indicating that it is not public knowledge.
Given the lack of definitive proof of their union, there were widespread claims that the 46-year-old rapper and 28-year-old Yeezy architect conducted a non-legally binding wedding ceremony. According to reports, they married in a secret Beverly Hills ceremony in January of this year without acquiring an official marriage certificate.
However, as the Daily Mail exclusively reported, the two are now legally married. They married in a private ceremony on December 20, 2022, just a month after West’s divorce from Kim Kardashian was finalized.
The secrecy of their marriage had previously fueled suspicion, but the obtained confidential marriage certificates establish their legal union, according to the Daily Mail. They were genuinely in love and happily married, according to a close acquaintance.
The couple married in Palo Alto, California, in Silicon Valley, according to their marriage license. They chose a private, unknown place for their wedding. The petition was filed under their full names, with the rapper’s name formally changed to ‘Ye’ from Kanye Omari West in October 2021.
Ye and Bianca were married by James Mayfield, a California-based officiant who offers marriage ‘packages’ starting at $385 that do not require a legal ceremony. Furthermore, the clandestine marriage license they got did not require any witnesses. The paperwork also revealed that his property in Wyoming is designated as their marital home.
West purchased the $14 million ranch four years ago, but there has been little development since then. Ye began erecting incomplete domes on the land in July 2020 and has not been spotted at the location for several years.
A close friend of the couple revealed why they chose a private marriage license, citing Ye’s long-standing celebrity and his first marriage to someone who is constantly in the public glare.
According to the source, Bianca and Ye have a very private and affectionate relationship that is marked by their intense dedication to each other.
“They prioritize creating moments exclusively for themselves, which explains their discretion regarding their wedding details, the source told the Daily Mail, adding that it is likely that only the two of them have the full knowledge of how their wedding unfolded.
