So much for a Christmas miracle, huh? Back in December 2018, news broke that Kanye West bought his wifey, Kim Kardashian, a $15 million luxury condo in Miami for the holidays. *Let that sink in for a second.* As it turns out, however, a source revealed to Life & Style exclusively that it was all just smoke and mirrors.
“The real reason why Kim and Kanye backed out of the luxury condo in Miami wasn’t because she didn’t like the space,” the source confessed. “She loved it, by the way, it’s because she was the one who was ultimately going to foot the bill on it.” Say what?! Surely, Kanye, 41, wouldn’t make such an elaborate gesture without actually pulling through … oh, wait.
“Kanye said he was buying the $15.5 million condo as part of Kim’s Christmas presents, and it made for a great story, but it was never going to happen,” the source continued. “Kim played along, but she knew it was her signature that was going to make the real estate deal happen.”
To be fair, it did make for a great story! And frankly, it made the rest of us feel crappy about what we bought our significant others … but that’s neither here nor there. “Kim’s got the money, that’s not the problem, but she didn’t want her hard earned cash going to a home she might visit one or two times a year,” the source noted. “If Kanye would have just purchased it, that would have been a different story.”
At the end of the day, it’s not entirely uncommon for one person in a marriage to be better with money. “Kim doesn’t do million dollar spur of the moment purchases,” the source said. “It’s no secret that Kim is very smart with her money, but Kanye, not so much.”
