After learning about Kim Kardashian‘s plans to pack up her family and move to Wyoming in a few years, I thought to myself, “Finally! Get gone girl.” But, I should have known better. Kim doesn’t say anything that isn’t a subtle klue into her next kaper. And since it’s now being reported that her husband Kanye West just purchased a sprawling ranch, in Wyoming, everything is all starting to make sense.
I guess after Kanye spent those few weeks in Jackson Hole, Wyoming last year preparing his ‘Ye album, he must have began feeling a oneness with the trees, and sky and whatever else connected with him spiritually (aka marijuana and narcissism). Perhaps that’s what prompted him to begin those Sunday Services. But whatever it was, TMZ reports that Kanye has just paid a whole lot of money for a sprawling ranch outside of Cody, Wyoming called Monster Lake Ranch. Of course it’s called Monster Lake Ranch, because where else would two people like Kim and Kanye reside that will contain their monstrous egos appropriately? And if you’re wondering how much this place costs, it has a price tag of $14 million.
The Ranch itself has 8 lodging units and is known for “monster trout” fishing. It has 2 fresh water lakes, a restaurant, an event center and meeting facilities. And — it’s a ranch, right — so there are lots of horse barns, corrals and lots of horsies. Fun fact … Cody is known as the “rodeo capital of the world.”
As far as how much he actually paid, that’s still a mystery. Kanye only purchased half of the 9,000 acre property and has to share the other half with the federal government. Hopefully that doesn’t mean his buddy Donald Trump will be flying into town and start turning his Sunday Services into Sermons of Sadness because who wants to party with that dude?
Currently Kanye is putting the finishing touches on his new album, titled Jesus is King, which is slated for a September 27th release date. I have to be honest, though, I’m not sure how I feel about Kim and Kanye having their own kompound in Wyoming because that’s how cults get started. Or maybe Kanye purchased such a big piece of land so he can really disappear from Kim when he wants to tweet in peace without her looking over his shoulder in shame.
