Kanye West has reportedly bought a new house right opposite the home where his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, stays with the couple's four children.

The two made headlines earlier this year when they decided to go their separate ways, with Kim later filing for divorce. She recently asked the court to declare her legally single, amid a new romance with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, saying Kanye and his legal team have been "non-responsive" following multiple pleas to proceed with the divorce.

The rapper, of course, has made it clear he wants to work things out with the reality star. His latest attempt to get closer to her, however, has more to do with the couple's kids.

"It made perfect sense for him to have a place near the kids," a source tells E! News of Kanye's hasty purchase of his new house, which he closed on right before Christmas. "It will take time to get permits and plans and he won't be able to live there for a while. But he is excited about it and so are the kids."

Neither Kanye, nor Pete Davidson, appeared to be present as the Kardashian-Jenners spent Christmas together over the weekend, where Kris Jenner gifted her children brand-new electric Moke cars, People reports.

Kim later took to her Instagram Stories showing clips of her extravagant new gift.
