Kanye West takes $11M Wyoming ranch off the market


Kanye West has decided to hang on to his Wyoming ranch — for now.

The rapper took his 3,888-acre farm there off the market earlier this month, The Post can report.

Known as Monster Lake, this marks the first ranch of two in the state owned by the business mogul, who purchased the compound for an estimated $8 million in 2019.

West, 45, put the ranch on sale for $11 million in March, but it doesn’t seem like he had any offers.

His other ranch, about 50 miles away from Monster Lake, cost an additional $14.5 million, and comes with 6,700 acres.

West’s big-dollar investments seem to have stemmed from his views on the importance of being a landowner.

“We have to evolve,” Kanye tweeted in 2020. “Buy property,” “Buy land,” he said in separate tweets.

Though it’s unclear if this has anything to do with his decision to keep the ranch, the move did come a week after it was announced his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and “SNL” alum Pete Davidson, called it quits.

The Post has reached out to West’s reps for comment.

Both properties have been referred to as the source of contention between West and estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who was against moving to Wyoming full time — as West had hoped.

The parcels include eight luxury cabins — which can house up to 20 guests — as well as a saloon and restaurant, and meeting facilities. Two new luxury cabins lie on the shoreline with full services. One particular parcel — No. 7 — is made up of 640 acres (1 square mile) that are ideal for cattle grazing and recreational hunting.

Property records reveal he last updated the sprawling home with new structures as recently as January, after purchasing neighboring land.

As it stands, the combined properties now boast a whopping 27 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms.

Following the divorce proceedings, West decided to buy a five-bedroom, four-bathroom house in Hidden Hills, California — across the street from Kim — for $4.5 million.

Sources told The Post the home, which hit the market for the first time in 67 years, was purchased by the star so that he could have easier access to his children.

“It’s just simple logistics so that he is close to his children and has access to them at the drop of a hat,” an insider told The Post.
