Cape Town – American rapper Kanye West has reportedly bought a house across the street from his estranged wife and reality television star Kimberly “Kim” Kardashian in a bid to have his kids visit him more often.
According to People magazine, the pair share four kids: daughter North, 8, son Saint, 6, daughter Chicago, 3½, and son Psalm, 2½.
They dated in 2012 and got married in 2014.
However, after nearly seven years of marriage, they decided to go their separate ways, with Kim filing for divorce in February this year.

The divorce process has been a bit slow, for Kim at least.
According to Channel24, the television reality star has recently asked the court to at least declare her legally single while waiting for Kanye’s “non-responsive” legal team to respond to her legal team with regards to proceeding with the divorce.
This comes amid Kim’s newfound relationship with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
According to TMZ, Kanye, 44, bought the 5 bedroom, 3 650 square feet house at a price of $4.5 million.
He bought it for the location only, otherwise, he is set to renovate it.
“Kanye’s new house is a teardown. He only bought it for the location. It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP, it will be family-friendly,” People magazine quoted a source as saying.
Take a look at some of the snaps from Kanye’s new house:
