A luxury Miami condominium meant as a Christmas gift for Kim Kardashian is back on the market. Kanye West backed off from his purchase of the $14 million property and will lose a $600,000 deposit. West first saw the condo at Art Basel event. Sources said the purchase came as an absolute surprise for his wife Kim Kardashian. The luxurious abode is located in the 18-story tower Faena House in Miami’s glitzy district adored by billionaires.
However, rumors circulate that Kardashian was not all that excited about the expensive present. Sources said she urged West to cancel the purchase, even if it would mean losing the $600,000 deposit. West backed out of the deal eventually, blaming the cancellation on reporters and leaks. The accusation seems a strange one to make, since he took a whole film crew and a bunch of reporters to watch him sign the deal on a balcony of the magnificent property facing the ocean.
A spokesperson for West said in a comment that neither of the reasons was true and that the couple loved the condo. However, Kardashian thought it did not provide privacy enough for their family. They are now supposedly searching for a more private and secluded vacation property.
