Keeping an eye on each other. Even though Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are no longer together, they still keep each other nearby.
According to Dirt, Kanye West has purchased a $4.5 million mansion across the street from his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian in Hidden Hills, California. Despite possessing a nearby $57.3 million Malibu property, Ye acted quickly to purchase the residence across from Kim’s, paying $421,000 more than the seller’s asking price, according to the site.
The former couple spent years renovating their once-shared Hidden Hills house, which Kim purchased for $23 million from Kanye in October.
Kanye’s new home, according to Dirt, is a single-story ranch house with four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in approximately 3,600 square feet. The property spans a little over an acre of level land and contains a horse stable, a tiny guest studio next to a garage, and AstroTurf fields that were recently constructed.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum paid her ex-husband $23 million in October for his part of the Hidden Hills mansion they bought in 2014. The total cost was $23 million, which comprised $20 million for the house and $3 million for the furnishings, which included art and furniture.
She and West agreed to pursue joint legal custody of their four children after the Skims founder filed for divorce in February. North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, are their four children.
Kanye promised to “get his family back together” while providing Thanksgiving meals to the Los Angeles Food Bank, according to REVOLT. Last month, we completed a mission.
“The narrative that God wants is for you to see that everything can be redeemed and all these relationships — we’ve made mistakes, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband,” he said at the time. “But right now, today, for whatever reason… I’m here to change that narrative.”
The “Stronger” rapper has hinted that he wants to reconcile with Kardashian, alleging in November that he never received divorce paperwork from the KKW Beauty mogul. During an appearance on the “Drink Champs” podcast, he stated, “My kids want their parents to stay together.” “I want to be with their parents – I want to be with them.”
Kardashian’s legal team claimed in court records filed earlier this month that her marriage to West had “irremediably broken down,” and that she wanted to be declared legally single while she and the Yeezy designer worked out their financial differences.
Despite his and Kim’s ongoing divorce, Ye stated that he wishes to remain in the area.
“I have to be next to my children as much as possible, so when I’m out the house, I got a house right next to the house,” he said. “I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation… I’m trying to express this in the sanest way possible, the calmest way possible, but I need to be back at home.”
