Kanye West Scraps Deal To Buy Miami Beach Condo

Kanye West has backed out of a deal to purchase a luxury Miami Beach condo after wife Kim Kardashian complained about a lack of privacy.

West snatched up the $15.5 million US, 439-square-metre unit with a wraparound terrace in Faena House while attending Art Basel in December. According to reports, it was a Christmas gift for Kardashian.

“When Kim and Kanye went to Miami to view the condo together after Christmas, Kim loved it, but felt it was not private enough for them,” a rep of the rap star told Page Six.

“They are now looking for a vacation home that is more secluded and offers much more privacy for their family.”

West loses his deposit on the condo, reportedly around $600,000 US.
