Kim Kardashian & Kanye West plan to buy homes in Miami, Paris & NYC

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are still in Rio for Carnivale, as Bedhead linked to yesterday. I believe that various Brazilian companies and sponsors pay for some celebrities to come to Carnivale every year – one year it was Gerard Butler (who was swimming in Brazilian ladies) and last year it was Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart. This year it’s Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Will Smith. But Kim and ‘Ye aren’t just spending their vacation partying. No, they’re also checking out real estate because why not? TMZ reports that Kim and Ye want to buy property in Brazil… and Paris… and NYC… and Miami. Because of course.

An $11,000,000 mansion in Bel Air might be enough for some people, but not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West … because TMZ has learned they have their sights set on buying THREE other multi-million dollar mansions across the globe.

As TMZ first reported, KK and KW plunked down a huge chunk of change to build a 14,000-square-foot pad in an über-private, gated community in Bel Air, CA.

But sources close to the couple tell TMZ they aren’t stopping there. We’re told they plan to buy homes in New York, Miami and Paris too — and, no it’s not a coincidence those are all centers of the fashion industry. Also, the Kardashians have DASH stores in all, but Paris.

Kim and Kanye have been in Brazil the last few days, and there are rumors they’re looking to scoop up a home there too — but we’re told that wasn’t the plan … they were just meeting an architect they might hire for their Bel Air pad.

However, our sources say the Brazil trip has been so enjoyable … they’re now open to buying a place there too.

Must be nice.

If you had crazy money and not much of a career, where would you choose to live? Like, do you ever watch House Hunters International and some faraway place comes up and you’re like OMG YES? There are some really amazing islands in the South Pacific where I would want to live. Where else? Hm… London. I would like to live in London for a few years (if I had a crazy amount of money). Savannah, Georgia would be a beautiful place to live too. So it’s a good thing I’m not super-rich, because obviously I would be buying up real estate in Savannah, London and the South Pacific.

    I can’t believe I am saying this: I like what she is wearing.

  2. gee says:

    I would have apartments in like all of the major cities. They wouldn’t be 11 million. Maybe 11 one million dollar apartments/houses. I die for real estate.. if only I had money.

    • Meredith says:

      I just bought my 1st house (at age 50) in a city outside of Toronto, Canada. I joke and tell people “It’s not the house I dreamed of but it’s the house I dreamed of …. being able to afford”. Drum roll, please!

  3. ZigZagZoey says:

    Aw, so they will always somewhere to get away from each other…How sweet.
    She is getting HUGE….And we aint seen nothin yet….

  4. Nev says:

    they look happy and normal.

  5. CaramelKiss says:

    If you’re knocking product off the shelves going down the aisles at the grocery store, you deserve to have “WIDE LOAD” taped to your ass. LMAO. Those hips are spreading fast!

  6. AlexandraJane says:

    Having walked up the steps of the Corcovado I would not be wearing heels like that!

    • Georgia says:

      She probably came up by elevator, the shoes make no difference. And that day it wasn’t that hot here in Rio, it was just 20-something degrees, nice and cool =).

      And their pose it’s the one everyone does it, people. In front of the Christ, I mean. I don’t know what people are saying critiquing it.

      • swack says:

        Georgia, while I don’t mind them posing like that because I believe that many people do the same thing. It’s them putting it out there for the world to see knowing full well that they are stirring up controversy in order to stay relevant.

      • Emma says:

        20 degrees I assume celsius? Because that is freezing. Hell 20 is 68 degrees Fahrenheit which is chilly and if you add a breeze is down right cold….Can you tell I’m from Florida? 85 tomorrow

      • AlexandraJane says:

        I wish I had used the elevator, my holiday pics were incredibly red faced!

    • minime says:

      Yes!! I really wondered about that…It seems to be such an exhausting way up there…Maybe she was carried ;)

      Update: thanks Georgia, I didn’t know that there was an elevator.

  7. Jenna says:

    Ugh. I refuse to welcome them into NYC. Here’s hoping they move out to Long Island!

  8. KellyinSeattle says:

    Yes, and hopefully we can get a road block in my city so they can’t set foot here!!!

  9. Dizzle says:

    OMG, she is going to be HUGE!!!

  10. Syko says:

    Thank heavens my city is not on their short list!!

    She looks like she was whipped through hell with a buzzard gut.

  11. minime says:

    my only question is: WTF is she wearing?

  12. idk says:

    Anyone else think Kanye will be the one paying for the homes? When they break up, she’ll get all the assets and a lot of child support. I’m not trying to be negative, but hey look at her track record, she doesn’t stay with a man for long and her relationships always end badly.

    • hatsumomo says:

      I agree. I think she’s too wily to use her own money. She’s gonna bleed him dry and when they eventually split, and it will happen, she’s gonna try to take it all. I cant believe he’s being taken in by such a transparent golddigger! Too funny to watch!

      • tabasco says:

        git down kim, go ‘head, git down

      • idk says:

        Kanye has no one to give him advice or guide him. I’m sure if his mother was still here, she would have put some sense into him. Haven’t you noticed the Kardashian women tend to go for men who are “only children”…Kanye has no siblings, Scott has no siblings, and Lamar has no siblings. These men have been easily manipulated by the Kardashian women.

      • Dana says:

        Doen’t he even have a song about this very thing? What’s it called again…?

    • nikko says:

      @idk, That’s something to think about. I agree w/ the mother thing for Kanye. But if I had the money, my permanent place would be in NYC. Love it!!

      • Skeksis says:

        I don’t doubt the ability of the Kardashians to manipulate but, as an only myself, I think only children tend to marry into big families. I did. It’s fun.

  13. dorothy says:

    Well that’s going to be a huge mess when they break up.

    • tabasco says:

      exactly what i keep thinking!

      now, these two wastes of oxygen aside, my real estate pics would be a natural wood and stone “cabin” in the Adirondacks, an Italian villa (either Lake Como or on the Adriatic coast), Miami.

      • hoya_chick says:

        LOL! Of course it will be. It will be epic and I cannot wait to read all about it here on CB.

      • Lucija says:

        If you want a property on the Adriatic coast, you should come to Croatia. Heaven on Earth. I’m not biased at all.

  14. swack says:

    I hope whomever is putting up the money for these homes (if it is only one of them) that they only put their name on the deed. It could get very messy trying to sort out who paid for what if it is not done correctly in the first place.

  15. Susie Q says:

    Let’s start a pool, I give this relationship a year and half more, tops. Anybody else? She certainly looks stressed, I can see why she needs Kris to cave into her demands… ;)

    • tabasco says:

      what’s the prize for who gets closest without going over?

      let’s see, she’s in 2nd trimester, they’ll stay together at least until the baby is born…. i give it a year. and it won’t be b/c of kanye. i don’t think kim will pull a halle and start accusing kanye of being an abusive monster, but she’ll come up with some bullsh*t excuse for why she NEEDS out.

  16. hoya_chick says:

    HGTV is my p0rn! I am addicted. I think I’d live on an island like Turks and Caicos in the winter months and maintain a fabulous brownstone in Brooklyn as my main US base and an apartment in Paris. I also, have a secret dream of living on a farm somewhere in the middle of nowhere, what’s a good place for that?

    Sigh, I can’t hate on them for this. That’s what you should invest your money in if you are wealthy!

  17. lady mary. says:

    Good lord!its JESUS CHRIST behind ,not the titanic,kanye does seem really into her doesnt he?

  18. janie says:

    Who cares? She will be big as a house no matter what country the whore lives in.

  19. i'm french don't kill me says:

    France doesn’t deserve it!

  20. Amory says:

    Well no wonder she’s so darn stressed out – all of that shopping and vacationing must be so hard, poor thing.

    She looks hideous. There are so many great maternity styles out there (and regular clothes than can be worn with pregnant), I find it shocking that she consistently looks so horrible. She seems depressed, although I do wonder whether superficial, immoral people can even get depressed.

    • idk says:

      She should have just borrowed Kourtney’s maternity clothing…Kourtney has great style.

      • Dawn says:

        You have to be kidding me, she would not fit in her sister’s clothes. Plus she would never admit that any one of her sisters may be prettier, smarter or have more fashion sense then she. She is too much about herself. Kanyeeeee better be prepared to pay whenever this mess is over in the next year or two because she will be cleaning him out.

  21. anon says:

    After all the trash talking on Simpson she doesn’t hold a candle to what KIM will look like in the end of this pregnancy.

    I would agree this does not look like a woman thrilled to be pregnant

  22. Dee Cee says:

    Who’s a fool? She will get half the proceeds on the sales after the divorce.. no way he can hide that loot.. heh

    • Dawn says:

      Whose cash are you talking about? Humphries? Because she has to divorce one before she can marry the other.

  23. Kelly says:

    Yowza, she’s got a parachute in pink AND white? They look exactly the same.

    I’m guessing she thinks she’s going to start a new trend in maternity wear because of her celebrity awesome-ness. Wait, I have to stop and laugh. She seriously needs to rethink the maternity outfits. That getup might look cute on someone perky with style and isn’t showing much (Sarah Jessica Parker or Jessica Alba maybe) but that sure as heck that ain’t her.

    I intensely dislike both of them, pity the baby so, so much, but somehow seeing how wretched she looks in those getups makes me want to smile.

  24. partypants says:

    Hahahahaha. Of course there’s no Dash store in Paris. Imagine what the French would think of the clothes Kardashians try to hawk?

    I don’t know how long she and Kanye will last in Paris. Those skinny and gorgeous French bitches are going to get to her eventually.

    Lastly: “But sources close to the couple tell TMZ they aren’t stopping there. We’re told they plan to buy homes in New York, Miami and Paris too — and, no it’s not a coincidence those are all centers of the fashion

    LOL. Miami, fashion center of the hoochie universe.

  25. Dawn says:

    Such an unattractive couple. His head always looks square to me. How is poor little pee on me Kim going to live away from her pimpamomma when they have a show to do? I bet pimpamomma will tell them they must have a Kim & Kayneeeeee do Paris, do New York and do Miami. I bet these two will hire their own photographer to pap them and then sell their pics. Horrible ugliness just oozes out of their every pore. Poor baby.

  26. G says:

    I hate myself for even noticing, but it’s kind of interesting how she’s not “done” in many of her recent photo ops. Like she’s taking a vacation from her image?

  27. ava says:


    will smith went there because he wanted to. people wanted to pay for him to be there but he refused and rented his own vip area.

    but kim, kanye and MEGAN FOX were being paid to be in the Carnaval.

    • Georgia says:

      Yes! I forgot to add that.
      Did you see the shenanigans with Megan and BAG leaving today?
      Some people are nuts.

  28. judyjudy says:

    Kim looks relaxed. Frumpy and rumpled (frumpled?), but totally relaxed. I think Kanye and this baby are actually good for her…???

    If I could live anywhere it would be near Lake Louise in Calgary. I’m more of a mountain girl than an ocean girl. I visited Lake Louise a few winters back and thought it was perfection.

  29. Gossip Garl says:

    I’ll inform the leaders of the EU..We have to put a stop to them even thinking about comming 2 EUROPE. On vaca YES, for movies music clips, me say ok) But to buy property here: HELL NO!

  30. palermo says:

    For a good laugh, check out DASH on Yelp. All their stores seem to be horrible, not many positive things said by the customers.

  31. Madriani's Girl says:

    What’s sad is Kanye really believes he’s the Second Coming.

    • Kitkerenina says:

      Second husband coming, and going…

      • hatsumomo says:

        He’s actually the third…

      • Dawn says:

        She is still married to Hubby #2. And who knows if she will really marry Kayneeee. He might see through all the Kraptrashian stunts and move on before he too becomes a laughing stock. People like her are incapable of love because love really is hard work.

  32. Jack says:

    @SuzieQ i give them about 2 years. not even that long. lol

    Cant these two hassbens move to mars? Away from people?

  33. Jack says:

    @SuzieQ i give them about 2 years. not even that long. lol

    Cant these two hassbens move to mars? Somewhere far Away from people?

  34. JRenee says:

    Lot of real estate to split after they split…Kanye shrug.

  35. some bitch says:

    I hope squatters take over their real estate when they aren’t staying in it.

    When these two break up it’s gonna be sweet.

    • Angel May says:

      I would bet the current contents of my checking account they will split within 1 year of the child’s birth, probably the first 3 months. Not that you have to be a psychic to predict that. And the custody battle will ensue.

  36. moo says:

    YEA! at least they’re very, very far away from me!!

  37. Dani says:

    He better put his name and only his name on every property they purchase. Unfortunately, I can’t fault her on not looking so happy. I’m 2 or so weeks behind her and I don’t look or feel thrilled. I feel like first pregnancy is hard on you in the first and even second trimester so I get the lack of smiles, but I do NOT get the lack of style.

  38. EscapedConvent says:

    I really feel sorry for that poor baby. It’s not going to know what hit it.

    I just hope they hire a very caring, loving nanny who sticks around for awhile, so baby KK will have someone stable & consistent in its life.

  39. lady X says:

    I will be waiting for the inevitable breakup when they are in court draining our tax dollars over who gets what house … LOL
    I Never advise people to buy real estate with a man they have only been dating 9 months …. or any person they are not married to .. it is such a bad idea and gets messy if things go south …
    I know they been sleeping together for years but sleeping with someone and dating them are two very different things …
    I always wish people the very best … but when you start off wrong you end wrong

  40. Paloma says:

    These two won’t make it. She is going to be a wreck once the kid arrives.

  41. islandwalker says:

    CB- please oh please post a side by side of Duchess Kate and Kim at four months along. Apples and garbage bags.

  42. skuddles says:

    She’ll need three homes to contain that fat arse of hers once the baby is born.

  43. DanaG says:

    I think another 18 months together maybe. After the baby comes and Kim realises she can’t dump it like she did poor Mercy and she starts getting pummeled for leaving the baby and going off everywhere which she will do Kanye might be expecting her to settle. I don’t think Kim K has that unselfish gene to put a baby first. I bet buying all the houses was her idea and of course it will be with Kanye’s money. Can you have a pre nup when living together? One thing is for sure when they split and we all know they will it’s going to be even nastier then with Kris Humphries. Cause that little baby is Kim’s golden ticket. Kim isn’t going to be a glowing mother to be it just doesn’t suit some people. She will get huge and it won’t all come back off your body changes and with Kims weight being on her butt and her hips she will be bigger then she was before.

  44. Trashaddict says:

    It amazes me to know that this is what society values so much as a commodity, that these 2 are rich. What the hell planet am I on? Well, since they’ve got it they should enjoy it while it lasts. And perhaps just maybe give a modicum of it away? to charity???
    Anyway, if I had my druthers for real estate, it would be the house in the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair. Now that was a great getaway place!

  45. MaryMaria says:

    She was poorly dressed…it’s summer in Rio… and some flat sandals would be nice to go sightseeing…and why high heels & pregnancy? WTF!!!…I don’t know how much they paid her…but I read that Megan Fox got $5,000,000 from a beer company…that’s wonderful for 3 days all expenses paid gig…and by the way…who is she???

  46. Barrett says:

    WHO CARES? My 1st actual thought when reading title.

  47. Mandy says:

    I would want to buy a place in London, too. And if I could buy a place in Florida, it would NOT be Miamai, it would be Seaside. Gosh, I love that place. :)

  48. Butterfly J says:

    I am 6.5 months pregnant, very grumpy today, and sick with a cold… so forgive me for being uncharitable, but all I can see here is a fugly pink rhino. What the frig is she wearing? She is rich. There is no excuse for those hideous clothes. Go to Old Navy, spend $40, and pick out something somewhat flattering.

  49. Joan says:

    I dont think that they are planning on buying any more houses,thia is just another publicity stunt for the kimye and kanye are wealthy yes,but they are not angelina and brad or beyonce and jay z,i dont think kanye wants to buy any more yes but kanye hell,if it was reported by TMZ(regularly known to report news that favour the kardashians) then its a BIG FAT LIE.Kris jenner really needs to up her game because if she is trying to sell this relationship,i dont think people are buying it.

  50. Dizzle says:

    She’s jutting out at the hips…

  51. partypants says:

    girls like kim should just accept their fatness. i know she’s pregnant but i’m talking about before. to me, adele doesn’t look fat at all. she carries her weight with dignity and it suits her and she’s beautiful for it. but kim k is a fat body trapped inside a skinny mind and her refusal to admit this only makes her look heavier. it’s jessica simpson syndrome. i do applaude the move to kaftans and muumuus though. finally, the clothes she was meant to wear, and even these look too tight on her!

  52. nonsensefinder says:

    Any couple that is so much on the techno gadgets 24/ know they have nothing going.

  53. logan says:

    Mrs. Humphries looks like she is having a great time with that “other’ man.
