Bianca Censori raised eyebrows when she joined Kanye West’s Yeezy empire as an architect — and now her skills may be put to the test after the couple named the rapper’s barren and dilapidated ranch in Wyoming as their official home on their marriage license had mentioned.
DailyMail.com revealed that the couple legally tied the knot in December last year – just a month after his divorce from ex-wife Kim Kardashian was finalized – ending months of speculation that they never actually entered into a legally binding commitment .
The happy couple was granted a “confidential marriage license,” meaning it was not made public, on December 20 in California after they were married by officiant James Mayfield at his Whispering Oaks Chapel in Palo Alto.
The couple has taken a lengthy European jaunt since tying the knot, but their home is officially Kanye’s $14 million ranch in Wyoming, which has remained abandoned in the years since he first bought it in 2019.

In new footage from March 2023, it appears West built his domes in Wyoming out of concrete-like material, leaving the structures standing on the abandoned ranch when DailyMail.com arrived on the scene.

The property is a world away from the glamorous $60 million hidden hills mansion he shared with Kim and their four children, with all-white furnishings, expansive arches and a giant swimming pool.
Kanye listed the 9,000-acre Monster Lake Ranch in October 2021 for $11 million during his divorce from Kim, but took it off the market in August 2022.
The property, where he plotted his failed bid for presidency, was reportedly Kanye’s favorite choice to settle down ‘full-time’ with the reality star-turned-businesswoman.
The farm was a bustling hotspot in July 2020, with scores of vehicles on the site as workers hammered away at the buildings, but now the farm sits empty.
Photos taken in March, just three months after he married Bianca, show buildings covered in thick snow, with construction halted in igloo-like areas. concrete structures that he had built in California in the style of his prototypes.
Several other buildings that were once surrounded by cars and construction materials now also appear abandoned.
During his heyday, West’s goal was to become “one of the greatest real estate developers of all time,” but these shocking photos reveal the true extent of his crumbling legacy.
Kanye also bought a sprawling ranch in Calabasas, Los Angeles in 2019 for an estimated $3 million, and set about building a futuristic dome development that left architects scratching their heads.

The 50-foot-tall “Yecosystems” were structures he hoped would help house LA’s rampant homeless population, while also serving as a backdrop for the Sunday Service, the gospel choir project he eventually took to Coachella.
He built the domes through the architecture arm of his Yeezy label, called Yeezy Home, which he launched in 2018. “We are looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world a better place,” he said at the time.
In an interview with Forbes a year later, the rapper showed off early versions of the domes, which he and a team of designers came up with after being inspired by the fictional planet Tatooine from Star Wars.
He planned to build large numbers of prefabricated structures as housing for the homeless, even putting forward ideas for sinking them into the ground with light filtering through the roofs.
The mind-boggling rapper believed he could build entire cities with the pods, and felt his “inspired” plans would see them spring up across America.
He became so obsessed with the idea that, despite being booked to headline the 2019 Coachella music festival, Billboard reported that he pulled out at the last minute because organizers wouldn’t let him build his own giant dome in the desert where he could stay during the event.

As recently as October, West was reportedly planning to expand the bizarre communities, believing that ‘Yecosystems’ would become a permanent part of communities across the US.
Despite being dropped from almost all of his collaborations, including lucrative deals with Adidas and Balenciaga, the rapper has continued with his own business plans and filed trademark applications under the name Yecosystem.
The documents included business plans for a home design service, residential buildings and even retail stores, ostensibly intended to provide services to its future tenants.
But not long after first building the domes in California, in September 2019, West violated California housing regulations after failing to obtain a building permit. After never being able to obtain one, the domes were on the verge of being demolished, marking the beginning of his real estate problems.
West had even claimed that the structures were only temporary, but inspectors found it suspicious that he had laid concrete foundations first. New images from this month show that this is all that remains after the wooden structures are razed for good.
