And he’s got the perfect thing to hang up when he moves in: a giant red flag! Because Kim Kardashian has been doing everything possible to show that she’s done with her marriage to Kanye West, like meeting her boyfriend Pete Davidson’s mom, or filing documents to be declared legally single while stressing to the court that she does not want to be with Kanye now or ever. And yet, Kanye thinks he still has a chance with his estranged wife. So while Kim is moving on, Kanye is moving in, right across the street from Kim in a 5-bedroom 1950s ranch house.
Around Thanksgiving, Kanye decided to hand out meals with the LA Mission, and during that little act of charity, Kanye went on an unsolicited rant about keeping his family together by any means necessary. Like, for example – if he wasn’t allowed to move back in with Kim, then he’d get a house right next door. Now, you might be asking yourself, but wait – doesn’t Kanye West already have a place to live? And you’d be correct. Several months after Kim filed for divorce, it was revealed that Kanye – who was not going to be living in their austere European plaster mansion anymore – had bought a $57 million concrete house in Malibu. But it’s not close enough to spy on Kim, clearly. via Dirt:
[Kanye’s] dropped another $4.5 million on a relatively modest Hidden Hills estate, one that happens to lie directly across the street from the ex-Kimye compound. From here, the 44-year-old will presumably be able to keep a watchful eye on Kardashian’s doings.
Astute real estate followers will know that the erstwhile pair spent years and untold millions building their massive Hidden Hills estate, which was featured in Architectural Digest last year. Back in October, Kardashian paid West $23 million to buy out his 50% stake in the multi-acre property.
It looks like the only thing that drew Kanye to this property was that it had a direct view of Kim’s house and is very close to where his kids live. Because the inside and outside is pretty much the opposite of what you’d expect to ever see Kanye turning his key into:

There is no way Kanye is keeping that house looking like it does. He’s probably already got a commercial-grade cement mixer at the property, ready to cover everything in cold gray, except the direct sightlines across the road. But maybe Kanye is going to lean into that house and its proximity to Kim, and start every morning by collecting the newspaper in his bathrobe, hollering “Howdy, neighbor!” at Kim as she leaves for her 7 am smoothie run. Honestly, either option is enough to make Kim apply for a permit to put up a 12-foot fence and a whole mess of privacy hedges.
