Merry Christmas 🎄

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

I’m actually a little bit surprised that Kanye West spent Christmas with his family in California. As we’ve discussed, the Kardashian-Jenners really blow it out for Christmas, with huge parties and photoshoots and extravagant gifts. All of the Kardash-jenner daughters posted tons of photos from Kris’s $1.2 million Christmas party, and Kanye was in a lot of those photos. So, it feels like Kim and Kanye are going through an okay phase. I’m sure by February, Kanye will be back on Twitter, ranting about the Grammys or something. But for now, they’re fine. And what better time to make a huge real estate purchase?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have quietly bought a $14 million apartment at Miami’s gleaming “billionaire beach bunker,” sources exclusively tell Page Six. KimYe have bought into the 18-story luxury beachfront tower Faena House, designed by Norman Foster and home to masters of the universe including Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd Blankfein, hedge-fund billionaire Ken Griffin and Faena co-developer Len Blavatnik.

While reps for Kim and Kanye didn’t comment, sources said KimYe purchased unit 5A, the condo of Alex Blavatnik, the brother of energy billionaire Len, for about $14 million. The four-bedroom, 5 ½-bath, 4,700-square-foot apartment with a wraparound terrace at 3325 Collins Ave. had originally been listed for $15.5 million. The building has all the amenities desired by the superrich: a private gym, spa, pool, concierge and underground parking.

The source said, “Kim and Kanye have been spotted viewing the property in the last month, and they are now in contract to buy it for $14 million. The sale is expected to close in January.”

The couple, whose main residence is a sprawling mansion in Hidden Hills, Calif., has long-standing ties to Miami Beach, the original location for the Kardashians’ Dash store. Kanye is a regular at December’s annual Art Basel Miami Beach, and the rapper is said to be down with Faena’s links to the artistic and cultural community.

It would be an amazing full-time home, but you know Kim and Kanye are probably only going to spend a few weeks there in the next year. It’s like buying one of the best beach houses ever and then only using it for a two-week annual vacation. You know what else upsets me? “The building has all the amenities desired by the superrich: a private gym, spa, pool, concierge and underground parking.” They’ll have to pay serious $$$ for those 24-7 amenities and then they will barely use them. It’s so wasteful. Ugh.

    I wouldn’t buy in Miami right now even if I had money to throw away. That shit is going under water. My brother in law lives there… it’s becoming more aquatic by the day.

    • hindulovegod says:

      Exactly! Miami doesn’t survive in even the rosiest climate scenarios. It’s already having serious, persistent flooding.

    • minx says:

      My first thought too. Your concierge isn’t going to save you from the water that is going to engulf your overpriced condo.

    • Arpeggi says:

      Maybe once they start being hit for real, the very rich will realize that their lifestyle is not sustainable and part of the problem regardless of whether they can afford it or not. I know that they almost lost their house to the forest fires, but it still doesn’t seem to be enough. Let’s see if loosing the condo to the next hurricane will.

      • Haapa says:

        It’s the poor who will be hit the hardest, not these people. These people will always be able to afford to move somewhere more secure. That’s why they don’t give a s*** about trashing the planet, they will be the least affected.

    • Jag says:

      I thought that when it mentioned underground parking. I was thinking that they might want to get a submarine or something. lol

  2. Babs says:

    They won’t divorce before 2020 when Kanye will go full political again and more insane than ever.
    Cute kids.

    • Dee says:

      A five year old posing like that isn’t cute to me; it is painfully sad.

      • BeanieBean says:

        I thought the same thing, she’s now a professional child, rather than just a child.

      • BooRadley says:

        What’s so sad about it? my 3 year old is always posing like that, the over the shoulder shy smile thing, and we are definitely not super rich nor super famous.
        And she doesn’t go to fancy parties, she watches the occasional age appropriate TV show as most 3 y/o do. That’s just what kids do.
        The sad thing is, that she is gorgeous, and has access to all the money and privilege in the world, but because her parents are fame whores, she will likely never value an education and will just be another nepotism celebrity.
        That’s what’s sad about this picture, not her totally appropriate 5 y/o pose.

      • Dee says:

        Children pose provocatively when the are exposed to that kind of thing. My kids grin big natural goofy grins when they are made to pose for a formal photo. They don’t cock their hips, put one foot in front of the other making them look thinner but precariously balanced, nor do they pout suggestively. Guess everyone raises their kids differently. *shrug*

      • abbi says:

        Yes, it’s seeking attention, and it is provocative. Along with the bright red lipstick on a child. Although what should we expect from a Kardashian?

      • otaku fairy says:

        Dee, the one sexualizing a little girl here is you. This is how victim-blaming gets started.

  3. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Super rich AND wasteful? How bizarre, how bizarre. Singing that damn song now. You know what I can’t stand that Kim, and countless others, constantly wear? Those barely there, very skinny, single-strapped heels. Blech. Nasty feet and toes on full assault duty lol.

  4. grabbyhands says:

    1.2 million on a frigging Christmas party for themselves. Imagine the good that money could have done had it been used for something other than their own bloated egos.

    I loathe this family more every day.

    • Krysha says:

      Yes, this exactly.

      And the over the top way they flaunt their obscene wealth, while never lifting a finger to help anyone less fortunate, is eagerly soaked up by the morally bankrupt populace, for whom food banks are a grim reality.

      Yet the super rich make no apologies for these unimaginably wasteful lifestyles. Indeed, it’s the opposite. They document and post every hideous detail on social media in the most shameless ways…

      In my eyes, this behaviour merely proves the old idiom that money can’t buy class.

    • Anastasia says:

      You said exactly what I wanted to say. I weep at the thought of what that could do for others. I mean, they don’t have to sit around in burlap potato sacks eating gruel! They could spend $50K on a Christmas party and STILL give the other 1,150,000 to people who need it!!!

      The conspicuous consumption just for the sake of display is disgusting. And I include everyone who does things like this, not just this family.

  5. megs283 says:

    Eh. Sounds like the mega-rich of Newport back in the day. The Vanderbilts would use their “summer cottage” – the Breakers – for a few weeks every year.

    And now I want to visit Newport…

  6. Megan says:

    The Christmas party was held at Kim & Kanye’s place this year, so it makes sense that he’d be there.

  7. Betty Whoo says:

    In the last pic with THOSE two together, no chemistry.
    I think Kim paid, Kanye just invests in his interrests

  8. me says:

    North is growing up way too fast. I thought Kim said North was only allowed to have her hair straightened for her birthday? Plus that red lipstick ! She’s so beautiful, she doesn’t need make-up, especially at that age ! Her natural hair is beautiful too !

    • Haapa says:

      I hope, but doubt, that she is teaching her children to love their natural hair and its texture. Not hopeful because this is the person who uses the fact that her children are PoC to deflect any criticism of her own cultural appropriation.

    • otaku fairy says:

      I know she’s Kim Kardashian’s daughter, but some mothers are perfectly fine with letting their little girls wear make-up for fun. It’s really not an issue unless older people choose to make it one.

      • me says:

        Otaku fairy

        She used North for publicity. That red lipstick is a new color she’s launching soon…she tweeted about it. This was her way to get her new lipstick more pr. It’s gross of her to do that. Just my opinion.

    I can just see the name of their next child : “Miami West”

  11. Lala11_7 says:

    What’s amazing to me is the OBSCENE amounts of money they spend for EVERYTHING…when they make ALL of their money off of licensing…not owning factories…not owning raw materials to produce things…but licensing…which means when the public’s appetite wans and disappears…THEN WHAT?

    It’s ridiculous….

  12. Shelley says:

    I’m poor AF and I want a pool and spa!

  13. TheOriginalMia says:

    They bought?! But TMZ said Kanye gave Kim the condo as a Christmas present. TMZ wouldn’t lie about the Kardashian-Wests. Lol.

  14. me says:

    Didn’t Kanye say just a year or so ago he was “broke”. Now he’s buying $14 million condos and having million dollar parties. Something is not adding up. Kanye and Kim also tweeted about a gorilla that knew sign language that recently passed away. In the video the gorilla is saying human’s need to take better care of the earth. That’s RICH coming from Kim and Kanye who don’t give a f*ck about the earth !

  15. FilmTurtle says:

    Eh, just quasi-rich people moving pretend-money around and doing favors for each other. They’re probably being used as bait to lure other people with more money than sense to buy into an overpriced condo that will get sold in sixteen months. They will film there and write it off on their taxes; they’re likely not spending a dime.

  16. OCE says:

    Maybe this was a pre-emptive financial strike to establish residency in Florida, which has no state income tax. My ex-boyfriend did this once he sold his company and “retired” at 40 a few years ago. He explained it to me (and he did this while maintaining joint custody of his young son based in Ohio, which is where he is based). These are the things the uber wealthy do to maintain their wealth for a long time (with the help of really good lawyers and financial advisors). They could just be planning to make it appear that they mostly reside in Miami, what with all the jet-setting they do..
