Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are allegedly spending (and wasting) millions of dollars on their new home, particularly when it comes to their new swimming pool.
According to a new report by Hollywood Life, Kardashian and West have been seriously butting heads over the design of a custom pool for their new home, and it’s reportedly costing them millions to get it right.
A source revealed to the site that the Kardashian-West family are having a luxury swimming pool installed into their new Beverly Hills home and have allegedly “spent millions on design changes” because the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars just can’t seem to agree on how it should look.
“After the pool was custom built to their specifications, Kim came in and requested several changes,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life earlier this week, alleging that Kim Kardashian didn’t like anything her rapper husband had chosen for the design and instead opted to have “everything redone.”
However, according to the source, West supposedly wasn’t impressed by Kim’s home changes and instead “came in and did the same thing,” changing Kardashian’s amendments and once again and sending costs for their new home sky high.
“Between the two of them they made so many changes that the cost of the pool skyrocketed to almost double what it should have cost,” Hollywood Life‘s source revealed of their home renovations this week, adding that Kim and Kanye have “easily spent a couple million” on the pool over the constant changes.
The claims that Kardashian and West are spending millions of dollars on their new home comes just days after People reported that Kim is sparing no expense when it comes to their new Hidden Hills home, including spending $20,000 on light fixtures.
“They both make a ton of money but they also spend a ton. And they are sparing no expense with their new house,” an insider close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West revealed to People of the couple’s new mansion last month. “$20,000 fixtures, the perfect flooring – the costs have been endless,” the Kardashian source claimed.
Kim and Kanye’s supposed stratospheric spending follows West’s February 14 Twitter claim that he was “$53 million in personal debt,” something that Hollywood Life‘s source is claiming comes as no surprise to those who see how Kanye spends his money.
“I can understand why Kanye is so in debt cause he wastes money on unnecessary things like multi-million dollar pools,” the Kardashian source told the site, adding that the couple likely won’t make their money back if they sell the home.
“It looked fine before all the crazy changes. Should they end up selling that home as planned, they won’t make back that money for all the silly changes,” Hollywood Life‘s Kardashian source admitted. “That is not smart investing but hey, he is an artist with a vision I guess.”
Radar Online also reported last month that both Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian have been left “horrified” by her husband’s constant spending, adding that Jenner allegedly warned her son-in-law about the amount he was spending on his Yeezy fashion show – for which he hired out New York’s Madison Square Garden.
“Kris was horrified at the amount of money he was going through and she saw this coming a mile away,” a source close to the Kardashian family revealed to RadarOnline, adding that Kris “discussed it with Kim and was pleased that she felt the same.”
“With Kris’s early warnings over him burning through their money and Kim’s fears that the range would flop, it’s no surprise to hear he’s in so much debt,” the Kardashian insider added.
