As Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s relationship is in turmoil, the rapper has taken a step to make it normal by buying a house near his estranged wife. West has reportedly become Kim’s neighbor as he purchased a $4.5 million mansion across the street from Kim. The 44-year-old record producer is now the owner of the five-bedroom house in Los Angeles’ exclusive Hidden Hills.

The new house was bought just months after West put his $3.7 million, 4,200 square-foot, house in the gated community for sale, and the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashian’ star filed a plea to be announced legally single. Though the ‘No Child Left Behind’ singer has repeatedly expressed his desire to start again with Kim and their four children, his estranged spouse does not seem to share the same thought as she has apparently moved on with the 28-year-old comedian Pete Davidson.

Reportedly, West’s new abode was built in 1955 and is more modest than the house he purchased in September for $57.3 million. The property is on a 1.07 acre of land and includes five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also comprises a large outdoor swimming pool, a horse corral as well as a stable for three horses.

Earlier, before buying the new pad, West apparently requested Kim to get back together at his Larry Hoover benefit concert with Drake last week. He said, “'I need you to run right back to me, more specifically Kimberly,” while performing ‘Runaway’. While giving an interview for Drink Champs, the ‘Praise God’ singer called the ‘PAW Patrol: The Movie’ star his “wife”. He stated, “SNL making my wife say, ‘I divorced him’ on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off. And I ain't never even seen the papers; we're not even divorced. That ain't no joke to me.”

Also, during the Los Angeles Mission Thanksgiving, West admitted: “I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason - I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic - but I’m here to change the narrative,” before adding: “I'm not letting E! write the narrative of my family. I'm not letting Hulu write the narrative of my family … I am the priest of my home.”

But Kim has reportedly ignored all his pleas as she filed to get back her maiden name legally. The documents she filed in the court stated, “No counseling or reconciliation effort will be of any value at this time. Irreconcilable differences have existed and continue to exist between [Kanye] and me, which have caused our marriage to irretrievably break down. I have been attempting to settle our dissolution with [Kanye] since I filed for divorce in February 2021.”

“I have requested several times that [Kanye] agree to bifurcate and terminate our marital status. [He] has not responded to my request. [Kanye] and I both deserve the opportunity to build new lives. Therefore, I am asking that my request to bifurcate and terminate our marital status be granted,” it noted.
