Also on “Hurricane,” Kanye references the Southern California home he and Kim bought in 2014 and later renovated to feature a mostly white interior. Architectual Digest featured it in a 2020 issue, along with an interview with the couple.
“Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement,” Kanye raps. “Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it.”
In 2019, Kanye purchased a $14 million ranch in Wyoming. He later spent much time there away from his wife and children. In January, a month before the divorce filing, a source told E! News that it had gotten to the point where the pair hadn’t spent time together as a married couple in months, adding, “They’ve seen each other for the sake of the kids but have been living separately. Kim knows the marriage is over. She’s known for a while.”
In February 2021, a source close to Kim said Kanye remains “a big part” of his kids’ lives, who have “primarily been with Kim and living at the house” in Southern California. “Any time Kanye wants to see them, he can,” the insider added. “She is not stopping him.”
