The Medici Family Is Furious Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Rented The Fort Their Ancestors Built!

Don’t mess with family stuff!

Prince Ottaviano de’Medici di Toscana, of the legendary Medici family, was outraged when he heard that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were planning on having their wedding at the Forte di Belvedere… which his family built!

He says he’s never even heard of Kimmy, but that’s not what has him upset. He explained the complicated situation, saying:

"The city is renting out our palazzi for small change to be used as dance halls. Events like this represent a danger to the cultural integrity and historical authenticity of the city, which is protected, and could mean a possible loss of UNESCO status or being placed on UNESCO's danger list. They are selling the city off and many here are disgusted… The fort should be used for institutional encounters, where heads of governments come to build cultural and economic relationships, as it was used down the centuries. And not as a ballroom."

The 57-year-old prince is the head of a conservatorship in the city of Florence and worries about several structures that have been used for weddings or parties recently, and he wants it to stop.

We can understand why he’s upset, but if the Fort was closed, like we previously reported, wouldn’t it make sense to make some money for it somehow?

    Newsflash! Your ancestors didn't BUILD the fort, slaves did. Your family just commisioned it

    The Medici family is the oldest in Florence, if they hadn't wanted Kimye to rent the fort, believe me they wouldn't have

    Re: COurtiger – We didn't have slaves in Europe, that's all yours

    I agree with him 100%
    you don't take a national historic landmark and rent it out for weddings, bar mitzvahs,
    and sweet sixteens'
    It cheapens the building's importance
    I think even worse than the Kardashian circus held at the forte, was Blooomberg in NYC,
    holding a cocktail party at the newly opened 9/11 Museum
    where the remains of many of the victims lay

    Re: Lana Banana – There were slaves throughout Europe right up until the early middle ages. Then there were serfs - which were very much like slaves.

    no point in talking shit now, damage has been done. I wonder how much it actually came out to.

    If it's for rent right? Don't understand why so upset

    Someone who is concerned about "cultural integrity and historical authenticity" doesn't care about making money like YOU do, Perez.

    I guess this dumbass doesn't realize that the city needs to make money and they weren't charge a small amount, wasn't it like $450,000. Re: Fitzzz – also you the same type of idiot because how do you expect those structures to get paid for. These things that your bitching about are the reason they are kept up. For example the NY public library is landmarked but just taxes cannot pay for it. The same as Met which is the reason they allow Anna Wintour to have the ball there every year. I don't think some of you idiots are either young and immature or don't understand the basics of upkeep on monuments and historical structures.

    Re: … – actually you did. Learn some history. Might not have been African but it was your own people ass hat

    I am currently what we might call a slave paid with my underpaid work.

    Re: rosebud99 – Slaves did NO? build palaces. Masons did, and worker, paid workers. Please read books once in a while.

  14. 14

    Re: Peoplearedumb – Salves did not build palaces. Workers did. The oldest guilds in the world.

    Re: Suhisfitsudjit – I agree. I was responding to the erroneous statement that there no slaves in Europe.

    This is dumb, why be angry at the Kimye's? This is obviously the responsibility of the individuals in charge of the venue to politely decline them. They are actually making it even bigger news than it has to be by complaining, now everyone will know about the place. hell i didn't know about the place until he medici started crying about it.

    Seriously Perez, TRY and understand the situation because you don't actually understand like you claim to be! The location is a personal, cultural and a family matter! No matter what the situation, you always seem to be siding with the Kardashians! You give them way too much media attention than what they deserve, which should be NOTHING.

    I think anyone in Europe should be happy that we send our precious celebrities to your god forsaken shithole.
    The fact that THE and i repeat THE Kim Kardashian got wed in your fucking tow, means more than anything.
    In America, we celebrate these people more than anyone who can cure aids and cancer, and we sacrifice our firstborn children in the name of Kanye.
    So your fucking fort means way more now that it did before.
    Now its a HISTORICAL landmark for the whole world to enjoy, your Medici fort has become more important than the pyramids in Egypt, thanks to Kim and Kanye.

    I suppose the place is now closed for fumigation to get rid of the stench of those whores

  21. Anissa says – reply to this
