Kim Kardashian is buying a new mansion to create Kanye Buffer

Kim Kardashian just spent $6.3 million on the home next door to her custom-built Hidden Hills mansion. And she wanted it so badly that she was willing to pay $800,000 over the asking price.

By the looks of it, the 4,230-square-foot home was purchased to expand their already massive presence in the neighborhood.

It also sits right in the middle of her current home and the home Kanye West bought across the street in December.

Is it a place for her boyfriend Pete Davidson to hang out in town? Was it bought to ensure Kanye couldn’t buy another property near her? What we do know for sure is that it appears to be in need of some major renovations.

Comprising four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, interiors are a little dated, with green shaggy carpets, velvet furniture and curtains, mirrored walls, and plaster floors.

Chances are, this house will be torn down and turned into something more extravagant and Kardashian-proof.

But on the plus side, the property sits on over an acre of land, which gives Kim, 41, four acres after buying Kanye’s stake for $23 million in October amid their ongoing divorce.

Built in 1975, the model notes that this is the first time it will ever hit the market.

It was performed after longtime owner of the home and beloved Hidden Hills resident Lilian Darling Holt passed away in November aged 84.

“This property is the perfect place to call home with a remodel or renovation to create a true masterpiece,” the previous listing admitted.

The family room features a fireplace, wet bar and sliding doors overlooking the large backyard. On the ground floor is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a separate bonus room.

Erica Fields at Compass held the listing.

The move comes less than five months after 44-year-old Kanye bought a new home directly across the street for $4.5 million, also over the asking price.

Back then, sources told The Post, Kanye bought the house so he could have easier access to his four children.

“It’s just simple logistics so he’s close to his kids and has instant access to them,” the insider said.

The Post has reached out to Kim’s rep for comment.

The Dirt was the first to report the transaction.
