It was reported last night that the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple stiffed owners of Castle Oliver in Ardpatrick, Co Limerick for their five figure hotel bill.
However, a spokesperson for Castle Oliver told Independent.ie this morning that they were paid in full for the couple's stay, which was cut short.
“I would like to confirm we have been paid, via our agent in Dublin in the usual manner," the spokesperson said.
The rumour mill went into overdrive when an unnamed hotel source told RadarOnline that the newlyweds complained that the family-run castle was “too big” and that mobile coverage wasn't up to Kim's standards/
The insider also claimed that Kimye had pre-ordered specific items including food, champagne, flowers, special bathrobes and candelabras for their brief time in the hotel, which was said to have cost nearly €10,000 before they even checked in.
It was reported that Kim had originally paid the bill with her black American Express credit card, but was able to cancel the payment and have the money refunded to her card.
But the couple, who have yet to comment, were said to have been extremely generous during their stay here - even tipping the host of their Ballyhoura biking adventure €1,000.
The reality tv star tied the knot with the rapper at Forte Di Belvedere in Florence in May before their five day honeymoon in Ireland where they stayed in Cork, Limerick and Ballyfin House in Co Laois.
They managed to avoid the paparazzi and despite their high profile, only a few lucky fans managed to snap a few photos of them here.
Radaronline also reported last month that Kim 'hated' her time here, a notion she was quick to rubbish when she tweeted how 'calm and relaxing' it was in Ireland.
She described it as a ‘calm and relaxing place’ and said she had the ‘most relaxing, romantic honeymoon'.
