Kim and Kanye's golden thrones

2013-07-23 23:30

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have spent £500 000 on gold-plated toilets.

The couple - who became parents for the first time on 15 June when Kim gave birth to daughter North - have reportedly splashed out on four luxury lavatories to be installed in their £7m mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles, which is currently undergoing renovation work.

However, the couple's spending is not limited to the loo, and Kanye has also put in an order for six special-edition beds costing £114 000 each, supplied by the company that fits out rooms at London's luxurious Savoy Hotel.

The reality TV star and the rapper are also thought to be splashing out £500 000 on their kitchen including a Swarovski- encrusted fridge freezer.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "They expect the interior to cost twice as much as the property. They're spending more than a million on a security system alone."

The new parents had been living with Kim's mother-and-manager Kris Jenner but have recently found a mansion to rent while work continues on their estate.

An source said: "Kim and Kanye have finally settled on a temporary mansion for their family to move into. It should be ready for them to move in the next two weeks.

"It's over 8 000 square feet and offers complete privacy, which was a big concern of Kanye's."

New Slaves star Kanye moved out of his apartment in New York City to start his family life with Kim in California.
