Kim Kardashian Pays Estranged Husband Kanye West $23 Million For Hidden Hills Estate
As the divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West continues, it seems the ex-couple has settled on one thing, their Hidden Hills home. According to newly obtained court documents, Kim Kardashian paid Kanye West $23 million for the estate that the couple purchased together in 2014.
The reality star and Grammy-winning rapper bought the home shortly after they married and rebuilt it from the ground up. With Kanye West spearheading the redesign, the home, which originally cost $20 million, is now worth over $60 million.
With the $23 million buyout, Kardashian reportedly paid $20 million for the property and $3 million for its contents like art and furniture.
As previously reported, Kim Kardashian has been living in the home with their four children, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, after filing for divorce from Kanye West in February. Meanwhile, West has spent most of his time at his ranch in Wyoming.
Kardashian reportedly had no intention of moving, considering most of her famous family lives in the same neighborhood.
An insider said,
“She has made her life there and it’s her kids’ main home. There was never a question — Kim was going to keep the home.”
