Kanye West has bought a $4.5 million house practically next door to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, which means they're going to be neighbours. Splashing the cash on a 3,651 square-foot, five bedroom home in Hidden Hills in Los Angeles, Kanye (who now goes by the name "Ye") clearly wants to be closer to his soon-to-be-ex-wife and his four young children.

According to MailOnline, Kanye even paid $421,000 over the asking price, to make sure 'he wasn't outbid'. The rapper's splurge came after Kim filed to become legally single and after he put his $3.7 million, 4,200 square foot home on the market.

When the couple were enjoying wedded bliss back in 2014, they bought a home together in the gated area of Hidden Hills for $20million. Kim is now the sole owner of the family home and it's reportedly now worth around $60million.

This comes as Kanye continues to proclaim his love for his estranged wife, while Kim ignores his public declarations. Although her married name, West, still remains present on her Instagram account, Kim actually filed to have it removed and her maiden name restored. She has also filed to become 'legally single' and is now waiting for the paperwork to be finalised.

Back in February, following months of speculation, Kim filed for divorce from her husband of almost seven years. At the time TMZ reported the reality star asked for joint legal and physical custody of their four kids, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one.

Almost one year on, Kanye is clearly far from Kim's mind as she continues to get to know Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. Kim and Pete reportedly spent Boxing Day together when they embarked on a casual lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel, according to HollywoodLife.

Kim and Kanye's divorce is still ongoing but one thing seems clear – at least with Kanye moving closer to his kids they'll be able to co-parent much easier.
