Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir are gearing up to tie the knot, and BET has already stepped in to make sure fans will get to see every step of the their walk down the aisle. The couple has signed a $650,000 dollar contract with the network to create their wedding television series, which will show viewers the moments leading up to their nuptials.
Now, reports are surfacing that not only will the two receive $650,000 for starring in the show, but BET will be footing the bill on their approximately $1 million wedding, which will be taking place on October 17 in Miami. TMZ reports that the $650,000 will be split between the two, with $400,000 going to Guwop, and $250,000 being given to Keyshia.
The new series will follow the longtime couple as they prepare their wedding arrangements together, and will contain a total of eight episodes. The series is also slated to incorporate both of their bachelor and bachelorette parties, with filming set to begin in just a few weeks from now.
It's also being reported that VH1 originally wanted to sign on the wedding series for the couple, which would have followed in the footsteps of the live wedding between Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris, but BET swooped in with the better deal for the pair.
