    Nowadays you can find daddy-to-be Kanye West either starting a beef someone in Hollywood such as Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake or busy spending millions remodeling his new $13 million, 9,000 square-foot estate with girlfriend and baby mama Kim Kardashian. That being said, he obviously has no time to dedicate towards the small stuff such as his teeny 4,124 square-foot Hollywood Hills home – ain’t nobody got time for that!

    Moving on to bigger and better things, Mr. West has relisted his estate for $3.3 million – a nearly $700,000 price cut from when he initially put it on the market in 2010. He first purchased the three-story modern property in December of 2003 for $1,750,000.

    The three bedroom, four bath home is a dream for a fan of modern architecture, especially if you have an art collection that you would like to display. In fact, the home looks a lot like a gallery and is a fabulous place to entertain, whether you are drinking Corvoisier and going to the Grammy’s or not.

      Kim Kardashian has sold her Beverly Hills Bachelorette pad! According to property records, Kim has very quietly transferred ownership of the five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom, 4,000 square-foot gated estate to an undisclosed buyer for an undisclosed price. The property was never on the open market and was quietly shopped to prospective buyers. The new owner is shielded by an unknown LLC and full details of the transaction are not yet available.

      This very house was the location of Kim’s engagement to (hopefully) soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries. Kim also called police to this home when a stranger showed up at her front gate with luggage in January 2012, saying he intended to stay with the reality star. After that incident, Kim publicly stated that she needed to move for her own safety.

      Fast forward a few months, and Kim has moved on to a new life with Kanye West, and the duo is expecting their first child this summer. To prepare for baby, they bought an elaborate, $11 million-dollar Bel Air estate for their growing family. With a new man, a new house and a new baby on the way, Kim’s ready to close the door on her old life – and old home.

      Often shown on “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” Kim’s newly-sold home is a gated, Tuscan-style estate. It is exquisitely designed and crafted with detail ironwork, dark hardwood floors and French doors. Aside from the five-bedrooms, the home also has a media room. Outside, a resort-like yard has pool, spa, waterfall, outdoor living room and dining room.

        The rumor mill is running on all cylinders over the news that the with-child duo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have just dropped about $11 million on a new Mediterranean mansion in Bel Air. TMZ first broke the news, saying “Kim and Kanye made the deal a few weeks ago … and they’ve already gutted it and are designing a 14,000-square-foot dream home in its place. The new home will be an Italian-style villa  … with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool … oh and probably a baby nursery.”

        If this is indeed K & K’s new krib, there’s no doubt that they’ll make some changes to the interior. According to The Real Estalker, Kanye’s current and former residences are more sleek and contemporary than this home. Kim has always had a flair for the flamboyant, so this house looks more her style than his. It’s likely that we’ll eventually find out what the unwed pair do to the home when the reality TV cameras inevitably invade the home.

        For now, we’ll chew on this rumor a little more, wait for the property records to officially come through, and review some of the details on their rumored abode.

        According to the listing, the three-quarter-acre estate is situated on a view-commanding ridgeline. Designed by architect Ron Firestone, custom craftsmanship and old world details are combined with every modern amenity. Hand forged wrought iron and glass front doors open up to the two story formal entry with black walnut parquet floors. A two-story living room, flanked by Cantera stone columns, overlooks the rear grounds and mountains beyond. The great room includes wide-planked floors, beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace, bar, and stone wine cellar. The library serves as a warm respite, detailed in rich woods and a burgundy marble fireplace. The master suite has spectacular views from every window, a fireplace, sitting room, large walk-in closet, and changing area. The master bathroom has large steam shower, spa tub, and even a massage room. The massive backyard is a dream with sweeping lawns, an infinity edged pool, and a loggia that serves as an outdoor living room and kitchen. Mercy!

          It’s no secret Kim Kardashian lives a very public life. With the ever-present reality show cameras trailing her to capture every riveting moment of her life, it’s not really a shocker that she’s also facing the very scary downside of fame – the stalkers, creepers and unwanted guests ringing her front doorbell. It was reported that last week, an unknown man showed up at Kim’s home in Beverly Hills with a ring (not the 20.5 carat ones that she prefers), but a ring of her doorbell. The man showed up with luggage and sources say that he stated that he was there to stay with the TV star and he was supposed to be working on her reality show. Kim freaked, the cops were called, and the man was removed from the premises.

          TMZ first reporting the stalker and now says that Kim has decided that she needs a new, more private place to call home. She’s interested in exclusive gated communities in Los Angeles, including Mullhulland Estates, where Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen and Robbie Williams all own massive mansions. Lucky for Kim, there is a killer home on the rental market within Mullhulland Estates that is right up her alley.

          Located on one of the best lots in Mulholland Estates, this property on exclusive Durham Road is for rent for $40,000 a month. This unique 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom home was designed with Craftsman-Asian fused architectural and is surrounded by lush, tropical landscape giving the property a private and luxurious setting that Kim craves, all while boasting breathtaking Los Angeles views.

          While Kim says she wants privacy and to fly as under-the-rader as possible, we all know that wherever Kim moves next, the cameras will be there to document her every move.
