A “Force Majeure” – French law – may torpedo KIMYE’s Parisian wedding plans.

After Vogue-ing out her Parisian wedding plans, the “reality” couple has learned that French law requires a 40-day residency requirement PRIOR to any wedding!

Kardashian, 33, had planned on saying I Do to West, 36, on May 24.

But according to various statutes in France, the historical birthplace of legalities at least one of the prospective  couple needed to reside in France for at least 40 days prior to the wedding, RadarOnline reported.

The French Embassy in Washington D.C. divulged, ”All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorize the deputy mayor or a city councilor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements can not be waived.”

A K-Klan source confirmed: “Kim and Kanye were unaware until recently that France required a residency requirement prior to the marriage. Kanye has an apartment in Paris, but he doesn’t live there full-time.”
