Some celebrity gossip may be mere wishful thinking - we'll believe Jessica Simpson nude when we see it - but the following rumor makes a lot of sense. Even if its source is The National Enquirer.
According to that tabloid: "Kanye West has a heart-rendering final tribute planned for his late mother: he intends to marry fiancee Alexis Phifer right after the holidays."
Are wedding bells in the air for Alexis Phifer and Kanye West?
Reportedly, the tragic, sudden passing of Donda West has "brought into focus just how short life really is. Kanye doesn't want to wait any longer to make Alexis his wife," a family friend said. "He believes that this is what his mom would want him to do."
Unlike Tameka Foster, Phifer has been a welcome girlfriend and fiancee. Fans love her. So did Kanye's mom, who "loved Alexis and... was looking forward to seeing them get married," the source added.
