KanyeWest and Kim Kardashian will be neighbors. Although the former couple may be divorcing, Kanye is said to have purchased the house directly across from Kim Kardashian for well above 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:

West’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 West will be renovating. There are also horse stables. This is wonderful news,

Looks like Kanye really wanted to own the house across from Kardashian because he paid $421,000 over the asking price. It may have been worth it as Kanye and Kim now live across the street, which makes sharing custody much easier and causes minimal disruption to their lives.
Reminder: Kanye also recently bought a home in Malibu from famous architect Tadao Ando, which he paid $57.3 million for. He clearly has a desire to spend big on California real property.
