Singer Lana Del Rey has dismissed rumors suggesting she was paid huge amounts of money for the three-song set at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pre-wedding party on Friday, May 23.

The star insists she never took a dime, and that she would never charge her friends.

West asked the popular hitmaker to stage a surprise set for his fiancé Kim at the couple’s celebratory dinner at the Palace of Versailles. Reportedly, the set brought Kim to tears.

Reports stated the sinfer earned a six-figure amount for the set. One article even stated she had taken $2.8 million (£1.75 million) for the brief show.

Upon her return from Europe on Wednesday, May 28, the singer told TMZ.com, “It’s not true… I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding.”

Because Lana is much appreciated by the couple, West hired an orchestra to perform her song Youn & Beautiful when he proposed to Kim at AT&T Stadium in San Francisco, California, on Kim’s 33rd birthday in 2013.

The happy couple married in Florence, Italy on Saturday, May 24.

The actual wedding was held at Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century fortress. Kardashian was walked down the aisle by her stepfather Bruce Jenner as opera star Andrea Bocelli was entertaining the guests.

More on Lana news, she releases her new album titled ‘Ultraviolence’ on June 16, which features the tracks Shades Of Cool and the Dan Auerbach-produced West Coast.

The full version of the album’s title track was performed earlier this week by Del Rey at a gig in Vancouver.
