Kanye West Allegedly Installing a Private Hospital Because the Kardashian Empire is Serious Business
I know we make a lot of jokes about the Kardashian Empire being a thing, but apparently it really might soon be a thing. At least, if this latest rumor about Kanye West is true. Apparently, Kanye West is installing an in-house hospital in his mansion, because why should the Kardashian-Wests have to outsource medical care? The news comes from The Daily Star, which could mean that it must be taken with a grain of salt, but we're talking about the family that threw a festival for North West's birthday which included a ferris wheel. It's not like they're pinching pennies.
According to the Star, West is paying £3 million or roughly $5 million on this hospital installation to protect Kim Kardasian and North West from potential medical threats. The hospital will come with everything from a CT scanner to blood-taking facilities as well as enable the family to monitor their sugar and cholesterol levels. In addition, the Kardashian-Wests will have a team of private doctors available at all times and a full pediatric team for North West.
Wow. If that seems more than a little excessive to you, apparently you're not alone. Kim Kardashian thinks that West is going a little far. The source claims she believes the whole thing is "paranoid and unnecessary", but is ultimately going along with it. In the first place, I guess she'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. In the second place, I'm sure if we could all afford to have a hospital in our house in case we get sick then we'd probably waste $5 million on it, too.
Still, if they really want to turn their mansion into a self-sufficient empire, then they're going to need to blow their money on a lot more.
- A fully stocked grocery-store
- A private indoor mall
- A Starbucks kiosk
- A nightclub that plays more than just West's songs
- A second nightclub for when they get bored of the first one
- At least three restaurants for when Kim Kardashian doesn't feel like practicing her cooking
- A press room in which to host any and all interviews
- A private theater that gets all the movies before the rest of the public does
- An amusement park in which to keep North West's Kidchella ferris wheel
On second thought, it's quite possible that they might need a bigger house before their empire can truly be considered an empire. At least they can already cross the private hospital off their list.
