Report: Kanye West wants to buy Kim Kardashian an Atlanta home

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian could soon call Atlanta home, at least part time, according to a report in Hollywood Life.

“Kanye is secretly looking to buy Kim a nice little property in Atlanta so they can be really connected. He’s from Atlanta and loves his hometown and he’s looking at places in Buckhead for Kim,” the Hollywood Life story says, quoting a friend of Kanye’s.

Kim’s no stranger to Atlanta, having spent time here earlier this year to film some episodes of “Drop Dead Diva” as a guest star. She was spotted around town at restaurants including celeb-magnet STK in Midtown while she was here.

Kardashian also headed to Atlanta soon after announcing divorce plans following her ephemeral marriage to Kris Humphries. She was in town that time, serendipitously enough, to film a role in Tyler Perry’s movie “The Marriage Counselor.”

Oh man that would be great. She could bring the entire brainless family out and they could have a confrontation with the Real Housewives in some trendy Buckhead hot spot. Nothing like a bunch of fat bimbos battling it out.

Courtney, he was born here….lived here until he was THREE and his mom moved them to Chicago. He was not raised here. Get your facts straight, and lose the attitude because you’re wrong!

Umm, you're wrong

Kanye West is “from” Chicago, not Atlanta. He was born in Atlanta, but grew up in Chicago form a young age, maybe 3 years old. He considers Chicago his hometown.

Umm, you're wrong

Ryan, can’t believe you’re typing something on a public platform, but you can’t spell. Take a class or 2 before you comment. Proofread at least…geez! Besides, no one else brought it up again but YOU.

She’s capable of buying her own home, house, condo, apt. or whatever. A little piece of *** makes a man just go krazzzy. Don’t they learn from previous relationships? I guess she’ll stay in the house for 90 days.

Kanye is an Atlanta native. FYI, being a native doesn’t mean that you can’t have lived anywhere else.

So, find something else to debate, people!

I find it amazing how negative people can be. I don’t care whether kanye or kim lives here but to say it makes our city worse is crazy. One thing I think that is holding this city back is all of these super negative minded people who complain about EVERY LITTLE THING, and magnify every negative thing about the city. Like my God, do you guys wake up on the wrong side of the bed everyday or something?

@ Kanye is from ATL…. even if he was “raised here” GA Southern is NO WHERE NEAR Atlanta. I could care less about the two of them, just don’t want them giving any location in my wondeful city a bad name cause they duke it out with some other tramp/douche in front of a bar/restaurant/mall/etc. No drama, no problem.

Those of you that are so obsessed with kanye and kim. #1. Get your owm life. In doing so you would have less time to obsess over others. #2 he may have been born in ATL, lived in ORD but this young man had a very priviledged upbrining. His Mother was a College professor that travelled the world as a visiting professor. He was raised all over the world. So do us all a favor and educate yourself and your children to the endless boundries of our world. They may not end up socially retarded and think that the world revolves around their common world. There’s a great Big Beautiful World out there that supercedes what’s going on here.
