KEY POINTS

  • Kanye West bought a home on the same street as the mansion he used to share with Kim Kardashian in Hidden Hills, California
  • He reportedly purchased his new home, which has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, on Dec. 20
  • This comes as Kardashian filed to expedite the termination of their marriage

Kanye West is not moving too far away from estranged wife Kim Kardashian as they co-parent their four children.

West, 44 — who now goes by Ye — bought a $4.5 million home on the same street as the mansion he used to share with Kardashian, 41, in Hidden Hills, California, Entertainment Tonight reported.

The Grammy winner reportedly purchased his new home, which has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, on Dec. 20.

This comes nearly a year after West and Kardashian called it quits. She filed for divorce in February following more than six years of marriage.

Earlier this month, the Skims founder filed to expedite the termination of her marriage following the "Gold Digger" rapper's recent public pleas for reconciliation.

In the documents obtained by ET, Kardashian said their marriage was "unsalvageable." The court docs also emphasized her desire to "bifurcate the issue of marital status from the remaining issues to be heard in this matter, and to terminate the parties’ marital status."

Kardashian also asked to be declared legally single before the divorce is finalized.

She requested in the paperwork that issues regarding the custody of their four children — North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 — as well as property matters and division of assets be dealt separately from the issue of their marital status, allowing Kardashian to be legally single sooner.

Kardashian's lawyer said that she "has no desire to reconcile" with her estranged husband and that the "continued maintenance of technical marital status between [Kim] and [Ye] serves no useful purpose, and there is no reason to maintain the legal relationship."

West has made several public pleas to reconcile with the reality star since November.

Earlier this month, the rapper professed his love for her during a performance of his track "Runaway" at the Free Larry Hoover concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

"I need you to run right back to me, baby. More specifically, Kimberly," West ad-libbed over vocals at the end of the song during the event, which Kardashian had attended.

West also insisted during an appearance on the "Drink Champs" podcast in November that Kardashian is "still" his wife and that he hasn't seen any divorce paperwork.

"My kids want their parents to stay together. I want us to be together," West said at the time.

After she filed a request to be declared legally single, an unnamed source told People that the Yeezy founder won't give up on his marriage to Kardashian without a fight.

Kardashian, however, has already moved on from her estranged husband and is currently dating "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson.
