American socialite and business mogul, Kim Kardashian will be keeping the 60 million dollars estate that she shared with estranged husband, Kanye West, as their divorce proceeds.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the 40-year-old SKIMS mogul will become the sole owner of the home where she has lived with the former couple’s four children since she filed for divorce in February.
Kim reportedly negotiated a buyout price with the 44-year-old rapper in order to purchase the Hidden Hills mansion outrightly.
It can be recalled that the couple bought the mansion in 2014 for 20 million dollars and Kanye led a complete redesign of the home with the assistance of famous Belgian interior decorator, Axel Vervoort.
In February 2020, Kardashian and West showcased their minimalist home for the first time in a feature for ‘Architectural Digest’, with Kanye praising Vervoordt’s work.
Kanye said in an interview: “When I saw the kind of work he was doing, I thought, This man could design Batman’s house. I had to work with him.
“It was a coup to get Axel to come to Calabasas to redo a McMansion, which is essentially what the house was”.
In January, a source revealed that Kim wanted to persuade Kanye to let her keep the estate.
“Kim is trying to get Kanye to turn over the Calabasas house to her, because that’s where the kids are based and growing up. That is their home. She owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it”.
On Monday, Kanye listed his Wyoming ranch for 11 million dollars and just last month, the Grammy Award winner bought a 57 million dollars Malibu mega-mansion.
Meanwhile, Kanye reportedly “regrets” how he behaved in his marriage to Kim. The 40-year-old reality star filed for divorce from the ‘Hurricane’ rapper in February this year, and it is alleged Kanye “knows that he hurt Kim” at times during their marriage and regrets some of his actions.
A source said: “There were things that happened in their marriage that Kanye regrets. He wasn’t always the best husband. He knows that he hurt Kim. He will always love her though”.
The insider also claimed Kanye still “occasionally” wears his wedding ring despite his split from Kim.
The insider further said “Sometimes it seems that he hopes Kim will change her mind about the divorce”.
Meanwhile, other sources recently insisted the star will not be rekindling her romance with Kanye, despite joining him at the listening party for his new album, ‘DONDA’ when she appeared in a white wedding gown and recreated her marriage to the rapper.
The source said: “They have come a long way since Kim filed for divorce. It’s taken them months to get to this point. Kim is happy that they get along and that things are amicable. The kids will always be her number one priority. She wants to have a friendly relationship with Kanye, because it benefits the kids”.
Whilst there’s no chance of Kim and Kanye, who have North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm together, they’re still great friends.
A source shared: “Kim and Kanye have a friendly relationship. It’s always been important to Kim to have a good relationship with Kanye. She accepted his lunch invitation earlier this week because they are at the point now when they can hang out. There are no hard feelings.
“Kim still appreciates Kanye’s business advice and guidance. She is happy that they can hang out”.
