Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Kanye West is buying his fiancée Kim Kardashian 10 Burger King restaurants throughout Europe as a wedding gift.

Kanye West is buying Kim Kardashian a chain of fast food eateries. The 36-year-old rapper, who owns several Fatburger bistros in Chicago through his company KW Foods LLC, is giving his fiancée 10 Burger King restaurants throughout Europe as a wedding gift.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''As always, Kanye is thinking outside the box when it comes to gifts for Kim. ''She owns all the jewels anyone could ever want, so he is taking the practical route by investing in businesses for her instead.

''He knows the fast food industry is reliable and lucrative, plus BK is international so he thinks it's the perfect fit for Kim.

''Kanye wants to buy her 10 restaurants across the UK, Italy and France, making her a real international businesswoman.''

The Bound 2 hitmaker wants Kim to step away from her reality TV series Keeping Up With the Kardashians and start carving out a successful career in business.

The source added: ''That's where he sees her future career, away from reality TV.''

Meanwhile, the couple - who have nine-month-old daughter North together - are reportedly set to tie the knot in Paris on May 24.
