Lana Del Rey allegedly walked away with an extremely healthy paycheck for performing at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding last weekend.
It’s no closely-guarded industry secret that the rapper and the reality TV star spent a ton of money on the recent event. The Inquisitr recently reported that the big day ended up costing the couple over $11 million to assemble. This is just a rough estimate; chances are that number will grow a bit when the accountants start punching buttons on their adding machines.
Although a lot of pieces to this puzzle carried extremely large price tags, it’s doubtful anything cost as much as Lana Del Rey. The singer, who performed three songs during the event, reportedly earned a staggering $2.8 million to do her thing at the wedding. That should set Lana up for many years to come.

However, let’s keep in mind that neither Lana Del Rey nor Kanye West have officially weighed in on the matter. Websites such as Perez Hilton and the Daily Mail are spitting out this number, which means you should handle the information with caution. Until the singer flashes her paycheck or Kanye West coughs up a receipt, take it with a grain of salt.
In fact, the singer recently told TMZ that she didn’t accept any money to sing at the wedding. Maybe Kanye will also shed some light on the matter once his honeymoon is all wrapped up.
So what songs did Lana Del Rey perform during Kim and Kanye’s wedding? Reports suggest that the songstress belted out “Summertime Sadness” and “Young and Beautiful” over the weekend, the latter of which was performed by an orchestra when the rapper popped the big question last year.
Unfortunately, footage of the singer’s performance at the wedding hasn’t leaked online as of this writing. However, there is a photo floating around of her at the rehearsal dinner. If you somehow missed the image during your adventures online, then we’ll do you a solid and embed it below.
