Kanye West buys $4.5m mansion beside ex-wife Kim Kardashian
Mr West’s $4.5m new home is reportedly just across the street from Ms Kardashian’s in Los Angeles. The couple have four children together.
The five-bedroom home is just over 3,650 square feet, and cost Mr West $421,000 over the home’s asking price. It includes a swimming pool and a stable for horses.
The couple originally lived in Ms. Kardashian’s house together, which Mr. West designed over a number of years. After the couple split, Mr. West gave his interest in the home to Ms. Kardashian.
This is one of several real estate transactions Mr. West has made in recent months. In September, the celebrity musician purchased a $53.7m beach house in Malibu. He has also recently listed another one of his properties for $3.7m.
The purchase may be part of Mr. West’s continued efforts to repair his relationship with Ms. Kardashian, who is reportedly currently dating SNL comedian Pete Davidson.
During a recent concert with Drake at the La Memorial Coliseum; he changed the lyrics to a song, singing that “I need you to run right back to me, more specifically Kimberly.”
In November, Mr. West went on a rant claiming that God wanted him and Ms. Kardashian to be together.
“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships,” he said. “We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband; but right now today, for whatever reason. I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic — but I’m here to change the narrative.”
At the time, Mr. West said he has to be “next to my children as much as possible,” which may explain the purchase of the home near Ms. Kardashian’s.
Mr. West’s attempts to rekindle his relationship with Ms Kardashian have not been entertained by the reality TV star.
Ms. Kardashian has filed for divorce, and stated in her court documents that “no counseling or reconciliation effort” can fix the couple’s marriage. She added that “irreconcilable differences” continue to exist between the pair.
Some of those “irreconcilable differences” may include political opinions. Ms. Kardashian has typically espoused liberal political views, but has refrained from making overtly negative comments about former President Donald Trump. She took a much criticized meeting with the former president in 2018; to discuss prison reform and the life sentence of Alice Johnson, who was granted clemency following the meeting.
Mr. West, on the other hand, has at times been outspoken proponent of the former president. More recently, one of Mr. West’s publicists, Trevian Kutti; was revealed to have pressured a Georgia election official into falsely claiming that she was aware of voter fraud in the state. Ms. Kutti told the frightened election worker that if she did not admit to the fraud, she would go to jail.
Some may call this accessible & the comment section is telling stalker. Do you think Kim will be smitten or turned off by the move?
