Amanda Knox and her fiancé, Chris Robinson, are apparently asking donors to help fund their wedding at the tune of $10,000 and in return, they promise to give shoutouts on the dance floor and limited edition copies of a book they authored together.
New York Post reports that according to the couple’s website, they aren’t asking for donations for a traditional registry, but instead the couple wants help in throwing “the best party ever for our family and friends!”
“With scant time to plan, and no financial backing, we had to spend our wedding funds on this challenging and important journey,” the couple wrote.
When the 1980s Madonna hit “Lucky Star” plays while on the dance floor, the couple promises to the give a shoutout to anyone who donates $500. For those generous enough to donate $2,000 to $10,000, they’ll get a “special video” of the couple reading an excerpt from the Encyclopedia Galactica.
Everyone who donates will get a copy of their book.
“Everyone who donates will receive a signed, limited edition copy of The Cardio Tesseract, our joint book of love poems, forthcoming from Alephactory Press.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Knox made worldwide headlines when her roommate, Meredith Kercher, a British exchange student studying abroad in Italy, was murdered inside a Perugia cottage in 2007. Knox claimed she was out with her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, when the killing occurred.
Italian authorities charged the couple with Kercher’s murder and shipped them off to prison after a 2009 conviction. Knox’s incarceration created a frenzy of anger and outrage, as people across the world demanded for her release.
Eventually, Knox was released from prison in 2011. In 2013, after she’d already returned to home to Seattle, Washington, Italian authorities officially dropped charges on Knox. In 2015, Italy’s highest court provided a final acquittal and exonerated both Knox and Sollecito.
Knox announced her engagement to Robinson last year.
