Kanye West Has Bought The House Across The Road From Kim Kardashian

Kanye West has reportedly moved into the house across the road from his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian, and paid a substantial amount over the odds for the privilege.

It is thought that Kanye had harboured desires of rekindling his romance with Kim, but now it would seem he’s accepted his fate and moved out of their massive – and architecturally interesting – Hidden Hills home.

Rather than go to one of his other homes, like his Malibu mansion that is around half an hour away, he has bought a slightly more modest house in the area, presumably so he can be near to his children.

However, it’s not exactly like the huge mansions that he’s become used to.

Sure, it’s still a big house, but given that his home in Malibu was curated by Japanese design legend Tadao Ando, and his Hollywood Hills digs were similarly impressive, this property is a bit of a climb down for the rapper.

It’s a single storey rancher house that was built in 1955 and sits over around 3,600 square feet.

See, he’s not exactly living in squalor.

It still has some stables and another smaller studio that could be used by staff.

The house has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, as well as an acre of land.

The obvious draw for Kanye seems to be that it’s right across the street in Hidden Hills from the house in which Kim lives with their children.

In October, Kardashian paid out $23 million (£17m) to West for his half of the property that they’d previously shared.

Now, West has forked over $4.5 million (£3.3m) to buy this new home.

It’s not like he’s short of a few bob though, is it?

In fact, he was feeling so flush that he paid a massive $421,000 ($313,000) over the asking price on the house in order to land it.

He’s definitely a motivated buyer.

Still, this all shouldn’t come as a surprise.

While West was out delivering Thanksgiving dinners to those less fortunate in Los Angeles in December, he told the assembled crowd that he planned to ‘get [his] family back together’ and said that if he couldn’t live ‘in the house’ with his family, he would simply buy ‘the home next door’ to Kardashian.

He’s a man of his word, you have to give him that.


Kanye West: Nothing will keep me from my children

Kanye West’s recent decision to buy a home across the street from his ex-wife Kim Kardashian had less to do with her and more to do with wanting to be closer to his children, he says in a new interview.

He also cryptically added that “no security” would keep him from his children, though he declines to mention exactly whose security — possibly Kardashian’s — he’s referring to.

In an exclusive clip from a talk with Hollywood Unlocked CEO and founder Jason Lee, shared with People magazine, West explained his much-ballyhooed recent home purchase: “Nothing with my career, with this rap, with this media, with none of that, that’s gonna keep me from my children. And that’s what I want everybody to know.”

He then warned: “Don’t play with me, don’t play with my children. Ain’t no security gonna get in between me and my children and you ain’t gonna gaslight me.”

But Kardashian’s divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, said it was “news to us” that the children were being kept from West.

“Mr. West being kept from the children, by security or anyone else, is news to us,” she said in a statement. “Both parties’ priority has always been the children maintaining strong bonds with each of their parents throughout this transition and beyond.”

People later removed the statement from its story.

A source also told People that Kardashian is “choosing not to engage in these conversations in order to protect [the kids].”

Insiders familiar with the former couple told Page Six that Kardashian would never keep West from his kids, but added that she has set up boundaries such as, “calling before, and not showing up unannounced [when he wants to see them].”

“He’s upset with her for trying to put more structure in place in order to protect her right to privacy in her own home, but he [still] gets to see them,” our source said.

Lee, who was a part of the crew hanging out with West and new gal pal Julia Fox at Delilah in LA this week, teased the interview on Friday. We hear that West “goes in a million directions” during the chat, which airs in full on Monday.

A rep for West did not comment.

West also says in the interview: “My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house. [It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”

Meanwhile, West also made headlines this week for teasing a song with the lyrics, “God saved me from that crash/just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass,” referring to Kardashian’s “Saturday Night Live” star boyfriend, just days after allegedly punching a fan.
