It seems that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are searching for some land in the U.K. to build West Castle in a place where they will be taken seriously and can be treated as the aristocracy that they believe they are. It seems Kanye prefers the “elegance” of England over the pedestrian United States. But will Kardashian’s momager, Kris Jenner, allow this to happen? Would that be the end of Jenner’s nest egg, Keeping Up with the Kardashians?
But it would seem that Jenner has her hands full right now with her other children, especially Rob Kardashian, who she has offered one million dollars to go to rehab, or, at least, lose some weight, and have it featured on KUWTK, according to the Inquisitr. Rob Kardashian has been diagnosed with diabetes, largely caused by his drastic weight gain, lack of exercise, and terrible junk food diet. But if Kim and Kanye move to the U.K., can Kris Jenner be far behind her meal tickets?
OK! Magazine is reporting that the Wests are planning the big move to England as soon as they can build the castle of their dreams. It seems they believe they are suited for a more “aristocratic lifestyle.” Kanye West has commissioned a medieval painting of his family to hang over the mantle in the new home according to a source.
“Kanye takes his image very seriously and he currently has his sights set on an aristocratic lifestyle. While he will always have a home in LA – where Kim’s expansive family are based – he likes the idea of having a manor across the pond. The portrait is all part of his upper-class image. It will probably hang in there home in LA to begin with until the English country home is ready.”
The Mirror said that if Kanye West and Kim Kardashian move to England, he will have to leave behind his dream of running for president behind in 2020.
“We hear the US rapper, 38, is in the process of shelling out £500,000 and buying a large plot of land in Blighty with the view to build a country pile on it fit for a Lord – and, of course, his Lady wife Kim Kardashian.”
A source stresses that the Kardashian-Wests will always keep a place in Los Angeles, but they want to make England their home base. West is looking to commission a European artist to paint the family portrait.
The Daily Mail said that they want to move their dynasty to the U.K. as soon as possible.
“While he will always have a home in LA – where Kim’s expansive family are based – he likes the idea of having a manor across the pond.”
West was able to check out some of the more country areas while visiting Oxford University and headlining the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset. He believes that he is far more suited for the life of a country gentleman.
The North Devon Journal claims that West has been looking for a plot of land in southwestern England. It has been reported that West and Kardashian are looking to sell their $20 million Los Angeles home, despite the fact that they have never lived there. For now, the couple, along with children, North and Saint, have been living under the roof of Kris Jenner, who has been living alone since her husband Caitly Jenner moved out.
Do you see Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as the lord and lady of the manor?
