Earlier this week, it was revealed that Kanye West purchased a home in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles. Ye paid $4.5 million for this property, in order to live across the street from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, and their children.
It appears that Kanye won’t actually be living in this home, though. According to People, he will be tearing it down and build a new one. The new home will also be in the same lot.
“Kanye’s new house is a teardown. He only bought it for the location,” said a source to People. “It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP. It’s just simple logistics so that he is close to his children and has access to them at the drop of a hat.”
Many fans have since been skeptical about Kanye making this purchase. It’s believed that Ye just wants to be across the street ff Kim, in an attempt to win her back from Pete Davidson.
Kim and Pete have been together for several months now, while Ye has gone public with his desire to reconcile. He made this known in a “Drink Champs” podcast interview, as well as when he performed “Runaway,” at his “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert in LA this month.
