Kanye West prides himself in spoiling his wife, Kim Kardashian. From stock in the country's largest companies to a neon truck just because, money is no object for the rapper. Kanye famously bought Kim a $14 million luxury condo in Miami as a Christmas gift last year! Unfortunately, every gift doesn't go over well and that was the case for the fabulous property.

According to Page Six, Kanye had to back out of the real estate deal, which cost him a pretty penny. This is so surprising since the couple was spotted hanging out on the balcony of their new diggs looking as happy as ever. But it turns out that there was a perfectly good reason for saying no.

The Miami condo seemed like the ultimate vacation home for KimYe.

The 6,200 square feet property is located in an 18-story complex called Faena House in Miami Beach. The view from the floor to ceiling windows and terrace alone is worth the $14 million.

Every space looks incredible. The building also has a private gym, spa, and a massive pool. It’s no wonder that some of the country’s biggest ballers have invested in one of the condos at Faena House.

Sources told Page Six that Kim “wasn’t so happy about the expensive surprise.” Cancelling the purchase reportedly cost him his $600,000 deposit. Yikes! 

Another rumor was that leaked information made them change their minds about the condo.

But as Page Six points out, that didn’t seem to make much sense because Kim and Kanye put on a show for the paparazzi when they went to visit the condo together. They were all smiles and affectionate on the terrace.

It didn’t seem like privacy was a concern for them, but that is what Kanye’s people are saying.

"None of those reasons mentioned [for pulling out of the purchase] are true. When Kim and Kanye went to Miami to view the condo together after Christmas, Kim loved it, but felt it was not private enough for them," a rep for the rapper told Page Six. "They are now looking for a vacation home that is more secluded and offers much more privacy for their family."

That reason doesn’t seem farfetched given the couple’s history.

There are photos of the inside of the condo all over the internet. After Kim’s terrifying robbery at gunpoint in Paris, we can see why something like that would ultimately give them cold feet. That experience was deeply traumatic for the couple. Taking extra precautions is the best way to keep something like that from happening again.
