Kim Kardashian and Kanye West commit to an $11-million mansion

Looks as if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are nesting — in a big way.

The expectant parents have spent $11 million on a 10,000-square-foot mansion in a very private gated community in Bel-Air, according to TMZ, which said the couple has owned it for a few weeks.


“The house is gorgeous,” a source told People. “And they really wanted and needed the privacy.”

But get this: That puppy’s a bit of a fixer, or at least it’s not exactly to Kimye’s liking. They’ve reportedly gutted it and are taking the Italian-style villa up to 14,000 square feet.

When it’s done there’ll be a movie theater and full hair and makeup salon, plus lots of ways to lose that baby weight: a gym, bowling alley, basketball court and indoor and outdoor pool.

Guess they came up with a down payment without having to sell the baby’s pics to that $3-million bidder.
