Kanye’s Color Clash: Malibu Mansion Madness! Hip-Hop Mogul Lists $53M Concrete Castle Over Wall Woes!

Kanye West has put his $53 million Malibu beachfront mansion on the market, and the reasons behind it are quite unique.

According to a source close to the artist, cited by The Daily Mail, Kanye dislikes the color of the walls, expressing a preference for earthy tones, which the mansion’s concrete construction failed to deliver. Despite paying nearly $58 million for the property in 2021, designed by renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, Kanye was reportedly disappointed with the cadet gray color and wanted warmer tones like dovetail gray or coachman’s cape.

The mansion, purchased post-Donda, offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean but has been stripped down and rendered uninhabitable. Kanye, known for his distinctive taste, only visited the house during sunrise and sunset when the color didn’t irritate him. Eventually, he stopped going altogether, leading to the decision to sell.

Listing agent Jason Oppenheimer, star of Netflix’s Selling Sunset, emphasized the property’s architectural value, calling it a “blank canvas” with a “unique opportunity” for the right buyer. However, the Wall Street Journal reported that significant investments would be needed to restore the mansion, which is currently lacking windows and electricity.

The property has a contentious history, with Kanye being sued by the former project manager, Tony Saxon, who claimed he was fired for refusing unusual demands, including removing all windows and electricity. Saxon alleged dangerous working conditions, unpaid wages, and wrongful termination. The lawsuit also revealed Kanye’s plan to transform the property into a 1910s-style bomb shelter, removing custom features and expressing a desire not to be “accessible” to the government.
