‘ Single pad’ it like Kim
FORGET A ROOM of one’s own, the ultimate luxe symbol is an entire house to yourself. That’s according to Kim Kardashian, who insiders say has splashed out on a ‘single pad’ in addition to the home she shares with husband Kanye West. She’s thought to have paid $1.6m for one of 72 luxury flats in Avanti (above), an upscale community in Calabasas, LA, where several of the Kardashians are based. The three-bedroom condo comes complete with Soulcycle facilities, a pressed juicery and boutiques.
One insider told Grazia, , ‘Kim’s family life can be really intense and sometimes she needs a time out. This apartment will be hers alone. She’s excited to decorate it to her own tastes without anyone else’s input.’
Last year, it was reported that Kanye hired interior designer Sandy Gallin to transform the couple’s LA mansion and spent a fortune on furniture – including $30,000 on a sofa – before changing his mind and putting it into storage.
Kim’s move will fuel rumours the marriage is under strain – which they’ve denied. Earlier this year, they were said to be ‘taking time apart’.
