And through it all, social media has been there to monitor the moves and provide its share of unfiltered commentary.
The latest in the Kanye-Kim saga finds the rapper spending $4.5 million to buy a new home located directly across from Kardashian’s home in Hidden Hills, CA. According to reports, West bought the 1-acre, single-story 3,600 sq ft home to be close to the couple’s four children: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
“Kanye’s new house is a teardown. He only bought it for the location. It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP,” a source told People. “It will be family-friendly. He wants to be able to have the kids over as much as possible. Living only in Malibu was making visits trickier for Kanye.”

Needless to say, West’s efforts with buying his new estate border on the extreme as in the eyes of social media, the “Runaway” rhymesayer is “obsessed,” with some comparing him to OJ Simpson.
