News: Forget The Beats, KimYe Want Something Even Bigger From Dr. Dre
Monday, Nov 18, 2013 3:35PM
Days after photos of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian cruising for potential property to build a mansion surfaced, new reports claim they have their eyes set on music mogul Dr. Dre's California land.
The latest update on KimYe's search bubbled online Monday (November 18).
As if Beats by Dr. Dre didn't earn him enough money last year ... Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are gearing up to line Dre's pockets even more, because Dre owns the Bel Air mega-property the couple is seriously thinking about buying. TMZ broke the story ... Kim and Kanye have got their eyes on a massive plot of land tucked away in a secluded section of Bel Air, and are considering buying it and then building an enormous, super-private mansion. The couple already owns an $11 million mansion nearby -- still under construction -- but now they're concerned it's too exposed ... so they're thinking about selling it and buying the lot. (TMZ)
The Doc reportedly dropped just over $10 million for the property.
And now for the crazy coincidence -- we've learned the 6-acre plot is owned by hip hop mega-producer Dr. Dre, which he purchased last year for roughly $10.5 million. We're told the land is now worth between $11-12 million. FYI, Dre is worth a reported $360 million. Kim and Kanye's reported net worth combined isn't even half that. Dre reportedly raked in $110 million last year alone ... largely from Beats by Dre. (TMZ)
This news comes in light of rumors which claim Kanye and Kim could be headed to London.
Socialite Kim Kardashian and rapper-fiance Kanye West are reportedly shifting base to London as they wish to give their daughter North West an "elite" education. "Kanye talks a lot about how he wants his kids to attend the same boarding schools as Kate Middleton and Prince William did. He wants them to go to Oxford, grow up alongside royalty and be part of the elite," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying. (DNA)
Although brief in discussing Kim, Ye recently credited the reality superstar for giving him a family.
"Family time. It's what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system," Kanye said when asked if he takes time for himself away from always working. "She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find." (BBC Radio 1)
