<p><span></span><strong>Kim Kardashian</strong> is getting a roommate! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Kim and her new beau, <strong>Kanye West</strong>, who have been linked since early April, are ready to take the next step. "They are preparing to <em>move in</em> together, it's moving that quick," an insider tells the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. Kim is even giving up her beloved bachelorette pad, as she has quietly put her LA home on the market.</p>
Although Kanye already has a house in LA and an apartment in NYC, the insider shares, "if things continue at the speed they're going, Kim and Kanye will rent a new house together. They wouldn't buy yet."
This way, the couple would have a generic place that they could decorate cohesively. Because Kim and Kanye have such strong individual styles, the insider confirms, "Kim would be putting a lot of her stuff in storage. Her bathmat is KK-embroidered and that's not changing. She's OCD-immaculate and so is Kanye, so to have both of their items would create problems."
This new pad will be Kim's permanent home base in LA, "the only place she has in LA -- and she always has her mom's," adds the insider.
Although Kanye would still keep his LA pad, the couple's new home would be a common place, "so that they can live together without being fully domestic until they're ready to have a family," says the source.
The couple have been joined at the hip and cozied up in four different countries since April -- and Kim even has plans to follow Kanye when he tours.
