Of all the star-seeking fans camped out behind the gates of Belvedere Fort in Florence, Italy, where the wedding of Kim Kardshian and Kanye West was held on Saturday, the most vocal were hoping to catch a glimpse of Justin Bieber -- but was the pop star even there?
A few hundred teens -- male and female -- gathered outside the famed 16th-century Fort, and at one point began singing in unison the lyrics from his famous hit Baby. "We are from Milan in Italy, we are here in Florence to see Justin Bieber," said one of several boys waiting outside dressed up to look like the 20-year-old pop star.
It was unclear whether Bieber arrived for the wedding. He was recently snapped in France for the Cannes Film Festival which sparked rumors that he might attend the Kimye event. He told an Italian journalist, "In a few weeks, I will be in Italy."
ET's special correspondent Carly Steel was on the ground in Florence, and reported that ambulances were standing by in case the crowd got too rough. At one point, a fan crossed a security line in a bid to look inside an arriving vehicle.
