Hidden Hills, CA – Kanye West is doing everything he can to stay close to his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and kids following his divorce. According to Dirt, Kanye has just bought a house across the street from Kardashian for $4.5 million — and even paid over the asking price to lock it down.
Located in Hidden Hills, California, Kanye West paid an extra $421,000 to land the 3,600 square feet property across just over an acre of land. The home was built in 1955 and had only been owned by one non-famous family, featuring four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a kitchen that was remodeled in 2005. There’s also a small guest studio attached to the garage, along with horse stables.
Ye dropped $57.3 million on a Malibu mansion in September, which is just a 30-minute drive away from from Kim’s sprawling Hidden Hills estate.

Kanye West admitted he wanted to get back with Kardashian in November and wished to be as close to his four kids as possible.
“The narrative that God wants is for you to see that everything can be redeemed, and all these relationships — we’ve made mistakes, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband,” he said. “But right now, today, for whatever reason … I’m here to change that narrative.
“I’m not letting E! write the narrative on my family. I’m not letting Hulu write the narrative on my family. I’m not letting Disney write the narrative on my family. I am the priest of my home. I have to be next to my children as much as possible, so when I’m out the house, I got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation.”
He added, “I’m trying to express this in the most sane way possible, the most calm way possible, but I need to be back at home.”
