Kim Kardashian West has reportedly spent $8 million on renovating her house.

The 36-year-old beauty and her husband Kanye West – who have children North, three, and Saint, 11 months, together – purchased the eight-bedroom estate in California’s Hidden Hills in 2014 but have yet to spend a night there because of the extensive changes they have made to the property.

And sources told TMZ that Kim was complaining at the final taping of her sister Khloe Kardashian’s talk show in April that she had personally put $8 million of her own money into the changes, which are said to have cost a total of $10 million so far.

The bill is reportedly so high because Kanye – who was hospitalised earlier this week for “temporary psychosis” brought on by exhaustion and dehydration – kept changing his mind, and after one thing was complete, he’d get contractors to rip it out and start again.

The news comes shortly after it was revealed Kanye had reportedly spent “nearly all his money” on furniture for the couple’s home in Calabasas, California, only to put it all into storage because he decided he didn’t like all the items, including a $30,000 couch that interior designer Sandy Gallin had chosen.

A source said: “Kanye walked into the house, decided he hated all the furniture brought in by Gallin, and demanded it be returned to the vendors.

“But they refused to take it back, so he took it all out and threw it into storage.

“He then spent a fortune on a new set of furniture.”

Kanye has now hired Axel Vervoordt to work on their house, but his 36-year-old wife – who suffered a terrifying ordeal when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month – is growing increasingly frustrated with the delays.

The source added: “Kanye spends so much money and he’s holding everything up. The house still isn’t ready. Kim just wants to be settled at home, especially after everything that happened in Paris.”
