Kanye West’s $57 million Malibu mansion has been left inside out less than two years after the rapper purchased it and hired a notable architect to renovate it.
Ye, formerly Kanye West, purchased the 4,000-square-foot oceanfront property in September 2021, which features giant windows that look out to sea.
He enlisted the help of architect Tadao Ando and brought in major contractors to oversee the extensive remodeling plans.
By the following summer, however, the restoration work had stopped and the ruined, windowless palace was left empty. Months later, Ye was brought down by various business and brand partners for his anti-Semitic outbursts.
Yee’s Malibu neighbors told TMZ that his mansion was “left to rot” and that they hadn’t seen “anyone around for several months.”
Kanye West’s $57 Million Malibu Mansion Is ‘Left To Rot’ From The Inside Out Less Than Two Years After She Purchased The Property And Hired A Reputable Architect To Renovate It

Yi was previously seen on the property inspecting progress last summer, but his empire has since fallen apart in dramatic fashion after he launched into numerous anti-Semitic remarks, which was the final straw after decades of odd behavior and embarrassing meltdowns.
His anti-Semitic rants also led to a loss of about $1.6 billion of his net worth and a fall off the Forbes list of billionaires, CBS News I mentioned recently.
And while his expensive plans clearly fell apart, he ironically flew off a new marriage to an architect, Yeezy’s head of architecture Bianca Sensory’s wedding in January.

Yee’s Malibu neighbors told TMZ his mansion was “left to rot” and that they hadn’t seen “anyone around for several months.”
But the palace remained barren, as seen in the new photos. The huge floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the ocean have been removed, leaving that aspect open to all the elements.
The inside of the house seems to be falling apart and the metal railings are rusting after exposure to salty air, wind and water.
While a fan posted in 2021 thatThe Malibu house is actually my dream painting,” others have since noted as he falls into despair.
At the end of 2022, around the time Yee was making anti-Semitic remarks, someone tweeted “Someone put a ‘Happy Chopsticks’ sign on Kanye’s ugly a** house in Malibu”.

Ye has several other properties around the country, most recently staying with his Bianca Censori in a different area of the Los Angeles area, including the Nobu Ryokan, where rooms cost upwards of $2,000 a night.
He also owns a sprawling ranch in Calabasas, Los Angeles, which he bought for about $3 million in 2019.
In this property, she 50-foot, “Yecosystemss” structures that he hoped would help shelter Los Angeles’ rampant homeless population, while also serving as the backdrop for the Sunday Service, the gospel choir performance project that eventually took him to Coachella.
West built the domes through the architecture offshoot of his Yeezy brand, dubbed Yeezy Home, which he launched in 2018. “We’re looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better,” he said at the time.
Despite being dropped from nearly all of his collaborations, including lucrative deals with Adidas and Balenciaga, the rapper has moved ahead with his own business plans, filing for trademarks under the Yecosystem name.
The disgraced rapper built domes, which were filmed in July 2019, to house the homeless, even envisioning building entire cities with Star Wars-inspired gratings.
Shocking new photos reveal an abandoned Calabasas West Ranch, where strewn trash and a stuck dune buggy remain.
The filings included business plans for a home design service, apartment buildings and even retail stores, ostensibly intended to provide services to future tenants.
But shortly after he first built domes in California, in September 2019, West fell to California housing laws after failing to obtain a building permit.
After failing to obtain one, the domes were demolished – marking the beginning of his real estate troubles.
In his explosive style, West attempted another architectural experiment in “affordable housing” after purchasing a sprawling Wyoming ranch, which he picked up when he reportedly became “obsessed” with the Midwestern state several years ago.
Aerial photos from the rapper’s Wyoming ranch from July 2020 revealed he was once again building mysterious domes on his ‘Monster Lake’ property.
In new photos from March 2023, West appears to be building his domes in Wyoming from a concrete-like material, which caused the structures to remain standing on the abandoned farm when DailyMail.com visited the site.
Bought for $14 million in 2019, the rapper began hedging his bets to find success with his antics.
More than 1,100 miles away from his distressed Calabasas home, West saw the wide-open plains of Wyoming as the perfect place to expand his unconventional real estate aspirations.
Once again aiming for the whimsical constructions, the rapper imitated his prototypes in California—except this time he appears to be using concrete-like walls instead of the wood gratings and materials he experimented with on the West Coast.
Photos taken in July 2020 showed the ranch as a development hotspot, with several vehicles on site as workers hammered into structures.
But now, with his fortune crumbling and his public image shattered, new footage of “Monster Lake Ranch” shows him basically stranded.
