Kanye and Kim are expecting their first child. Kris had chosen a house near her own home in Hidden Hills, Calabasas, so that the couple could move closer.
Kris is desperate to be close to Kim during her pregnancy, so she hand-picked a property for her daughter and Kanye in Hidden Hills, radaronline.com quoted a source as saying.
She wanted to be able to visit Kim as often as possible and come and go as and when she chose to. Kris even suggested having her own key. But, Kanye laid down the law. He said hell no to the idea and told Kim he didn't want to live near her mom, the source added.
The couple has recently bought a new mansion in Bel Air.
