Kanye West has always been a passionate artist who is willing to go over the top to seek his vision — and that might include trying to reconcile with ex Kim Kardashian. His pre-Thanksgiving rant about the fact that God believes he “needs to be back home” with the SKIMS founder and their four kids, North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, is coming to life now that he’s bought the house across the street from her in Hidden Hills.
He wanted this property so badly that he paid $421,000 more than the sellers were asking for — so there was no competition when it came to buying this home. It’s a place that doesn’t fit Kanye’s minimalist vibe one bit and at 3,651 square feet with five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, it’s not exactly up to the A-list standards he’s used to. This place is going to require a lot of TLC (possibly a complete teardown?) before he can turn it into the monochromatic palace of his dreams. But he only has a little over an acre to play with, so the rapper is going to have to think on a smaller scale.
There’s also the question of whether the rapper bought the home to keep tabs on Kim and her blossoming relationship with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson. A Hollywood Life source revealed that “he’s very, very upset” and “is willing to do absolutely anything to get Kim back,” so we are guessing that being his ex’s neighbor was high on the list. We wish Kanye well since breaking up is hard to do and maybe a renovation will take his mind off the fact that Kim is moving on.
