Kanye West has reportedly shelled out an eye-watering $57.3million (£41.9m) for a beachfront property in Malibu amid divorce proceedings with Kim Kardashian.

The 44-year-old rapper, who finally released his long-awaited album Donda at the end of August, has agreed an off-market deal on the impressive property according to real estate transaction site Dirt.

The visually striking pad was designed by Japanese award-winning architect Tadao Ando, one of only a few he has designed in the US, with Kanye apparently a fan of his work since visiting the architect’s Japanese ‘art island’, Naoshima.

The 3,665 square foot pad features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and is spread over three floors.

The home is zoned into three distinct areas, with the bottom floor housing three guest suits, the middle floor the public areas, such as kitchen and living room, and the top floor is the owner’s bedroom suite.

It is being sold by financier and art dealer Richard Sachs, the ex of actress-turned-designer Ashley Olsen, who has reimagined it over several years and with many millions, since he purchased the lot in 2003 for $1.9m (£1.4m).

The spartan design of the building extends to its exterior, with an outdoor terrace area with firepit on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace, but nothing further.

The building is close to its two neighbours but does, however, boast direct access to the beach from a set of stairs.

Reality TV star Kim is said to be a manageable car ride away from the new house in the family’s $60m Hidden Hills mansion, along with her and her estranged husband’s four children, North, eight; Saint, five; Chicago, three; and two-year-old Psalm.

The couple married in 2014, with Kim filing for divorce earlier this year but maintaining a united front and supporting Kanye with the launch of Donda.

The Skims founder recently confirmed to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres on the final season of her show that she was happy with her four children, in light of her sister Kylie Jenner expecting a second baby with her boyfriend Travis Scott.

The host asked if the 40-year-old was ‘done’ having children, and Kim responded: ‘Yes, yes I think so. Yes, I’m done. I have a lot of kids, I’m done.’

She also revealed that all of her kids were very different from one another, as she shared that Chicago was the ‘princess’ daughter, whereas North was a ‘full goth girl’ and fan of Birmingham heavy metal band Black Sabbath.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Kanye’s reps for confirmation.
