From husband and wife to neighbors. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are no longer a couple, but, somehow, they're still close. According to TMZ, the rapper, in fact, just paid $4.5 million ($421,000 more than the original list price) to purchase a property in Hidden Hills that is apparently located exactly across the street from the one where his ex-wife and their children live. The mansion spans 3,651 square feet and includes five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an outdoor pool, and a horse corral with a stable. Although, looking at the pictures, it seems not quite in line with Ye's refined and minimalist aesthetic and taste in architecture, the small ranch has the great benefit of giving the artist the opportunity to be as close as possible to Saint, Chicago, North and Psalm.

Being able to freely and often visit his children is definitely the main reason why West chose his new mansion, but it could also be his latest attempt to reunite with Kim. In recent months, in fact, the rapper has expressed several times the desire to win back the ex. Some examples? Last November 24, during an appearance at the Los Angeles Mission's Thanksgiving, he addressed the audience by announcing that he and Kim would resolve their relationship issues:

We've made mistakes. I've made mistakes. 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. When God brings Kimye together, there's going to be millions of families that are going to be influenced to see that they can overcome the work of the separation, of trauma the devil has used to capitalize to keep people in misery. I have to be next to my children as much as possible.

Adding a few words about his new 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.

Before that, while attending Drake's Free Larry Hoover charity concert, West tweaked the lyrics to Runaway by improvising a verse dedicated to Kardashian and singing:

I need you to run right back to me, more specifically Kimberly.

 

Result of all these public calls? None. Kim asked the court to become "legally single", marking the final end of a seven-year marriage.
