Kim K is selling house that’s already costing her and Kanye West more than $11 million. Kim K and the rapper have poured millions into their new Bel Air mansion, but a real estate shift is delaying things. The reality star also wants to sell the house to be closer to her mother, Kris Jenner.
The home was purchased in early June 2013, according to the Daily Mail. The “couple have been residing at Kris Jenner’s Hidden Hills estate,” the site said. Kim K, 33, has been in The Hamptons helping her sisters Kourtney and Khloe shoot their new reality show.
For now, Kim K and West will look for a house closer to Calabasas, which is near Hidden Hills. This real estate shift is seems to delaying the project and they were hoping to move in this month. “She just wants to be settled,” a source said. “Not squatting in someone else’s house.”
There are also reports that West, 36, was holding up construction because of his increasing demands for Kim K. “He’s a total snob when it comes to style, design and architecture,” another source said previously. “He thinks nothing of changing direction midway and starting over.”
West is also turning over a new leaf by speaking to fashion students at various higher education institutions in order to chip away at his court-ordered 250 hours of community service stemming from an altercation he had with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last July.
Meanwhile, Kim K is keeping the real estate world busy by reportedly looking for a luxurious apartment in New York City for her and her husband and their 1-year-old daughter, North.
“They are selling Kanye’s apartment and looking to buy a new home here,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kanye’s apartment on Mercer St. is only two bedrooms and now with the baby and the plan to have another soon, they need a bigger place.”
Kim K and West got married in Florence, Italy, last month, and so far things have been good for the most part. The rapper is currently on tour, and the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is taking care of 12-month-old daughter North. The family appears busy for the most part.
The couple’s new home looked far from finished earlier this year after pictures emerged of the property with incomplete roofing and missing windows.
