KANYE West wants the services of the Republican Guard at his Paris wedding to Kim Kardashian.

The rapper is set to tie the knot to the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star on May 24 in the French capital and has put in a request to the French President Francois Hollande to use the country's official security forces who protect the highest national personalities and important foreign guests.

A source said: "He's asked his people to put in a request to French President Francois Hollande for the use of the Republican Guard, which provide his security.

"He's asked for some of the 3,200-strong team to be dispatched to him for the day and has offered to pay $1 million for their services."

Kanye reportedly wants their guests to be subjected to a pat-down and searched when they arrive.

The source explained: "They'll be twice as many security staff than guests and metal detectors at all entry points. Kanye's insists that everyone be checked. They will be monitored by CCTV and have phones and cameras confiscated."

The 'Bound 2' star also wants Paris airspace to be shutdown to prevent paparazzi getting exclusive shots of the big day.

A source told heat magazine: "Kanye is not only paranoid, he sees himself as the biggest star in the world and he wants to ensure that the city is prepared for 'the wedding of the century'.

"He wants to shut down Paris airspace on their big day and has even put in a request to the director general of the French Aviation Authority.

"His team are trying to warn him that it's unlikely to happen, but Kanye is convinced that their wedding is important enough.

With the couple spending millions of dollars, he believes it should be granted to them."
