Kanye West’s latest purchase will leave everyone shocked, which is around $57 million and guess what would that be?
After his divorce from wife Kim Kardashian, the rapper dropped a whopping $57.3 million on beachside mansion in Malibu. His new sprawling home is a piece of art, which was designed by Japanese Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando and was built by Marmol Radziner.
The home was previously owned by financier and ex of Ashley Olsen, Richard Sachs, who bought the home at a much lower price of $1.9million. It was initially listed at $75million last year before being taken off market. The 3,665-square-feet home sits on a 5,672-square-feet property right by a public beach.

The 3,665 square foot home is divided into three stories: a bottom floor with three guest bedrooms, a middle floor for shared space, and a top floor containing the primary suite. Though there’s no yard, outdoor space can be found on the second floor, where a lounge area surrounds a fire pit and on the rooftop terrace, along direct access to the beach from a staircase leading from the second floor. As the four bedroom, four and a half bathroom home was purchased in an off-market deal, there are no interior photos available online. But it is clear from images of the exterior that are circulating that the concrete structure suits West’s minimalist style, reports Architectural Digest.
The latest real estate addition to West’s portfolio was acquired during his ongoing divorce from Kim Kardashian, with whom he shared an L.A. compound. The New York Post reports she’ll get that property after the split.
Coming to the work front, West’s 26-track EP Donda debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 earlier this month. He is now one of only seven artists with at least 10 No. 1 albums in the chart’s 65-year-history, along with The Beatles, Jay-Z, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley and Barbara Streisand.
