Kanye West Posts Photos Inside $60M House As Kim Responds: 'We Had a Rule to Not Show Our Home'
West's photo posts come amid a flood of tweets from the rapper, who had been silent on the social media platform for months
Kanye West is showing off his and Kim Kardashian West‘s Hidden Hills, California, mansion on Twitter, despite the couple having agreed to keep the house, which they purchased for a reported $20 million in 2014, out of the public eye.
The rapper-producer shared three photos showing the interiors of the home that he and Kardashian West moved into in December following an extensive renovation. Kris Jenner tweeted on Wednesday that the house is now worth $60 million.
“Do this look like the sunken place,” West captioned a photo of the stark white interiors, making reference to the 2017 horror movie Get Out.
The Oscar-winning film’s writer-director, Jordan Peele, explained the phrase on Twitter after the film’s release, writing, “We’re all in the sunken place,” and then,“The Sunken Place means we’re marginalized. No matter how hard we scream, the system silences us.”
Kardashian West replied to her husband’s posts on Twitter writing, “Ummm babe. We had a rule to not show our home on social media! Soooo can we now allow KUWTK filming in the home?” She added a crying laughing emoji. She later tweeted again to clarify that her earlier message was meant to be a joke, and that she was not scolding her husband.
“Oh RELAX I’m joking! Seriously you can’t have a personality on social media these days or your called bizarre or disturbing,” she wrote.
The Kardashian-West family’s home, which was designed by the couple in collaboration with Belgian architect Axel Vervoordt, features a restrained palette, almost church-like architecture, and minimal furnishings. Outside, the estate boasts 3.5 acres, two swimming pools, two spas and its own vineyard.
“We decided we wanted a house that didn’t need baby proofing,” Kardashian West told archdigest.com of the interiors’ smooth surfaces. She does however, have a difficult time keeping the all white-furniture clean with three children — North, 4, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 3 months — in the house.
“Oh my God. I run around the house with towels,” she said. “You just have to take a deep breath and say, ‘Ok, it’s going to happen. We decided to have light colors.'”

West’s photo posts come amid a flood of tweets from the rapper, who had been silent on the social media platform for months until this week. The rapper announced he’d fired his management and multiple sources tell PEOPLE he’s cut off communication with his inner circle and has had multiple arguments with his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner.
Wednesday morning, he posted about spending time with his daughter, North, the success of his Yeezy clothing line and his feelings about politics.
Another insider said that West’s behavior is “very hard to deal with” and “he‘s all over the place,” adding, “If you can’t be part of his creative genius, he’ll cut you loose. That’s what he says.”
