Two months after Kim Kardashian officially transferred the marital home fully under her name, Kanye West bought a single-story house directly across the street, The Post can confirm.
And apparently, he wanted the modest five-bedroom, four-bathroom house so desperately that he paid $4.5 million — $421,000 over the seller’s asking price.
It also happens to be good timing for the rapper, as the five-bedroom, four-bathroom house in Hidden Hills hit the market for the first time in 67 years on Dec. 1 for $4.079 million, according to the listing.
West, 44, closed on the home on Dec. 20 under the LLC, Spruce Blue Trust, records show.
And although the “Donda” singer has expressed his interest to “get his family back together,” a source told The Post, this house transaction was more for the former couple’s kids.
“It’s just simple logistics so that he is close to his children and has access to them at the drop of a hat,” the insider said.
But it looks like the home will be in need of some upgrades, as it appears to be a far cry from what the Kardashian-West clan are used to.
