Kim Kardashian and Kanye sell LA mansion
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and 21-time Grammy winning rapper, fashion designer and entrepreneur Kanye West have sold their customised Bel Air mansion in a hugely publicised, off-market deal valued at $US17.8 million ($A24.9 million).
The couple purchased the property in early 2013 for $US9 million ($A13 million) and spent the next two years and a considerable fortune on a renovation that transformed an opulently appointed faux-Tuscan villa into severely minimalist home.
The approximately 9000 squarefoot (835 sqm) residence has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, while the back of the house opens to stone patios, a broad lawn and an open-air cabana alongside a newly repositioned swimming pool and over-sized spa with panoramic canyon overlook.Controversies rock Hollywood in 2017
The buyer was identified by the property gossips at Mansion Global as Marina Acton, a Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist who's based the Bay Area but wants to spend more time in Los Angeles to jumpstart a singing career.
About a year after they purchased the Bel Air mansion, the couple shelled out $US22.675 million ($A31.745 million) for a French Country farmhouse-style mansion in the celebrity stacked Hidden Hills enclave in LA's far western suburbs.

But at the time of their purchase the main house, on land once owned by Lisa Marie Presley, measured in at close to 16,000-square-feet (1485 sqm) with eight bedrooms, eight fireplace, and eight full and two half bathrooms.
