It feels like we’ve been talking about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s home remodel for two years now. Oh yeah, that’s because we have! And so have Kim and Kanye, according to a report. Apparently it’s become a big source of stress for them, perhaps leading Kanye to his breakdown!
We were stunned when Kanye West, 39, was checked into the UCLA Medical Center on Nov. 22 after suffering an apparent breakdown at his trainers home, but it may have been a long time coming. Kanye and his wifey Kim Kardashian, 36, have some of the same stresses as other couples: bills, house repairs, budgeting, etc., but to the extreme. Like, $10 million dollars extreme. Apparently that’s caused a lot of tension between Kim and Kanye, and it may have finally set him off, according to TMZ.
The outlet learned that in April Kim was complaining about the costs of renovating her and Kanye’s Hidden Hills home (which they’ve been remodeling for two years now without ever actually living there). At the time the project was clocking in at $8 million. Kim was upset because she was paying for everything, and things only got worse because now the changes have reportedly cost upwards of $10 million!
TMZ reports that the absurd costs come from Kanye constantly changing his mind, forcing contractors to do and undo tons of different things to the home. Considering the mansion was originally $20 million and they’ve now spent half the cost of the home to change it, we can see why that would bother Kim.
Naturally, that kind of stress causes bickering, but add that to Kim’s Paris robbery in Oct. and Kanye’s feud with Taylor Swift and constant rantings and you have a recipe for disaster. It sounds like it may have just all built up on Kanye and finally exploded when he admitted himself to the hospital on Nov. 22. We just hope they get through it!
