Kim Kardashian has revealed her ex-husband Kanye West is living in an apartment without security – and doesn’t have a chef or a nanny.
During the latest episode of The Kardashians, the 43-year-old SKIMS billionaire revealed her ex-husband’s simpler new lifestyle without any of the luxury trappings they shared at their $60million Calabasas compound.
Kim, who kept the mansion when they divorced, said: ‘North, she’ll go to her dad’s, she’ll be like, “Dad is the best. He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny. He doesn’t have a chef. He doesn’t have security. He lives in an apartment”.
‘And she’ll start crying, “‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.”‘
Kanye is now legally married to Bianca Censori, 28. They wed under a confidential marriage license in December, just a month after Kimye’s divorce was finalized.
Their union wasn’t made public, and speculation swirled for months about their relationship status
Earlier this month a source told DailyMail.com exclusively: ‘They are besotted with each other. I can assure you they are very much married.’
The bizarre couple made headlines worldwide over the summer including when they were banned by a Venetian boating company for committing ‘obscenities’ while on board.

West also owns land in Calabasas,as well as a sprawling ranch in Wyoming where he spent much of his time in the final days of his marriage to Kim.
In the episode, Kim’s sister Kourtney admits that her kids say the same sorts of things about her ex Scott Disick’s house as well.
‘They’ll do that at Scott’s too, like, ‘Dad has the best house. Your house sucks. He has the best house, it’s not super-big, the vibe’s better.’ I feel like everything falls on the parent that’s like more involved,’ Kourtney says.

Kourtney adds, ‘I do make pancakes every morning and that has been a game-changer. They love it because we’re sitting at the table and they’re happier.’
Kim adds, ‘Yeah, except one wants a smoothie, one wants this, one wants that,’ as Kourtney retorts, ‘So I say like one of you… they rotate like choosing breakfast.’
Kim adds, ‘But like… oh my God I just need a day,’ as they go back to the joint confession where a producer asks, ‘Which one of you is more like your mom?’
They both agree it’s Kim, as the Skims mogul adds, ‘For sure. I mean, she gets worked up. Like when she gets frazzled where she’s just like, ‘Get over here Kimberly,’ as Kourtney adds she has her ‘teeth clenched.’
Kim grabs Kourtney’s arm, mimicking Kris, adding, ‘You know, and you’d be like, ‘OK, get off my arm,’ you know, and I can see… I don’t grab the arm, but boy do I want to. For sure the same energy.’
Kourtney adds, ‘And I used to see it in myself until I did the work.’

Kim adds that, ‘Nothing was good enough. I took Saint on this trip and he was so excited, but then North was furious and she wouldn’t speak to me because she didn’t get an alone trip. And I’m like, ‘You always get alone trips.’
Kourtney adds, ‘But what if you don’t make it so extreme and do like a private dinner with North, or something. Go on a walk, go on a hike, go to tea. Even if you spend like… I’ll do with Reign like where we’re just sitting and like talking and like have like real focused attention.’
Kim added, ‘Yeah, I need to do that,’ while Kourtney adds, ‘It doesn’t have to be a crazy thing, you know.’
Back in their joint confession, Kourtney adds, ‘I think I have a more gentle approach with my kids. I find, with my kids, that coming from a more loving approach works best.’

Kim adds, ‘And I feel that way, but… with a little bit of tough love in there too and a little bit of frazzled… ‘S**t what the f**k is going on? Get the f**k over here’ like energy also. It’s like, ‘Go to bed. I’d be like, ‘It’s 10 o’clock and you’re still up? Go to bed!’ Like you’re driving me crazy, you know, so I definitely think we’re different like in that way. I get frazzled.’
Kim and Kanye, 46, share four children; North, 10, Saint, seven, Chicago, five, and Psalm, four.

Kanye and Bianca tied the knot in Palo Alto, California, on December 10, 2022, one month after he finalized his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
The rap star – who has legally changed his name to Ye – and Bianca have been determined to keep their romance low-key.
The insider shared: ‘Ye has been a megastar for two decades and counting, and his first marriage was to someone who lives almost full time in front of a camera.
‘Bianca and Ye have a totally different vibe. They are very private, very affectionate and totally devoted to each other. I think they both enjoy carving out time that’s just for them.
‘For that reason they’ve been extremely hush-hush about the specifics of their wedding day. I don’t think anyone besides the pair of them know exactly how it went down.’
The rapper’s hugely successful music and fashion career imploded last year following a series of antisemitic scandals.
He first came under fire in October 2022 when he tweeted about “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE”, and weeks later he heaped praise on Adolf Hitler while appearing on a conspiracy theorist’s podcast.
As a result, lost his big money deal with Adidas, was dropped by agents CAA and record label Def Jam and had the likes of Balenciaga and Vogue magazine distance themselves from him.
