Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Might Be Moving to Wyoming
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have lived together in California for nearly a decade. But it looks like they’re planning to make a new home for themselves and their kids outside of the golden state.
Reports say that West recently purchased a sprawling ranch in Wyoming. And he’s reportedly already making accommodations for their four kids: North, 6, Saint, 3, Chicago, 1, and Psalm, 4 months.
More on West’s ranch
A source confirmed to People magazine on Sept. 9 that the “Runaway” rapper recently bought a ranch in Cody, Wyoming. The property, known as Monster Lake Ranch, is reportedly 52 miles away from the world-famous Yellowstone National Park.
“Kanye West has been in Cody, Wyoming for a few weeks now,” the source said. “He bought a ranch and is touring local elementary schools.”
“It’s a massive property with panoramic views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains and comes in at just over 4,500 acres,” People reported.
TMZ adds that the ranch has eight lodging units, a restaurant, an event center, a station for meetings, and two freshwater lakes, which are home to “monster trout.”
The property was previously on the market for $14 million. But TMZ notes that West did not pay full price.
Kardashian recently talked about moving to Wyoming
She told Vogue Arabia for its September issue that she could see herself and her family living in Wyoming within the next decade.
“In my mind, I’m already living in those 10 years,” she told West, who conducted the interview. “I see us living on a ranch in Wyoming, occasionally going to Palm Springs and our home in Los Angeles — and becoming a lawyer.”
While it may seem like an odd resting place for the A-listers, a low-key location like Wyoming could be just what they need. They’ve both expressed desires to have more privacy, and Kardashian has said that she eventually wants to retreat from the spotlight and focus on her law career.
She added to Vogue Arabia that she would “probably” set up her practice in Wyoming and occasionally fly to Washington D.C., New York, and Los Angeles to continue her work on criminal justice reform.
West is familiar with Wyoming
The Yeezy designer spent a lot of time in Wyoming recording his 2018 album ye, which features a photo of mountains as the cover art. Reports say that he’s actually there now working on a new album, Jesus Is King, which will reportedly come out in the fall.
As of writing, West hasn’t said much about the project. But Kardashian recently shared an Instagram photo of the tracklist, which features songs like “Water,” “Garden,” and “God Is.”
West had previously tried to move the family to his native Chicago. But Kardashian reportedly didn’t want to move so far away from the west coast. An insider told People magazine that she would “never” move to Chicago and hoped her husband would change his mind.
“[She hopes] that Kanye [will] change his mind quickly, like he usually does when he gets spontaneous ideas,” the source said.
And, luckily for her, the “Ghost Town” rapper eventually did.
“Kanye is excited about being in L.A. now since he has his spiritual service every Sunday,” a source told People on March 27.
West has since taken his Sunday Service event to various parts of the United States, so perhaps that’s why he’s OK with leaving California. We’ll have to wait and see what he says on the matter. But, in the meantime, we wish them the best on their reported move.
