Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are going to be neighbors. The former couple might be getting a divorce, but Kanye reportedly purchased the house across the street from his ex—for well over the asking price. According to the Daily Mail and Dirt, Kanye shelled out $4.5 million on a “relatively modest” estate in Hidden Hills, which is directly across from the massive home he and Kim renovated. That property now belongs to Kim, who spent $23 million buying out Kanye’s half back in October. You can check out a low-key tour in this Vogue video:
Kanye’s new place was built in 1955 and Dirt describes it as “architecturally unremarkable,” (lol) with four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, plus a guest studio that has another room and bath attached to the garage. Apparently, there’s also wall-to-wall carpeting and a very ’80s vibe, so chances are Kanye will be renovating. Oh, and there are horse stables! Which is great news since:
Looks like Kanye really wanted to own the house across from Kim because he paid $421,000 over the asking price. Obviously, it was worth it, since the fact that Kanye and Kim will now be living across the street from one another makes sharing custody that much easier, and means minimal disruption in their children’s lives and routine.
Reminder: Kanye also recently bought a home in Malibu from famous architect Tadao Ando, for which he paid $57.3 million. So clearly he’s in the mood to spend big on California real estate!
