Kanye West is looking to buy his girlfriend Kim Kardashian one hell of a gift. A source close to Kanye West has stated that Kanye plans to buy Graceland – the former home of Elvis Presley – as a gift for Kim Kardashian. Graceland is currently owned by Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie Presley who rarely stays there.
An inside source told Daily Star, “Kanye is really excited about the possibility of owning it. He thinks it would be really cool if he, Kim and baby Nori lived there, at least some of the time…Kanye has always been intrigued by Elvis, especially his influence in bringing blues and gospel music to the masses."
Graceland is currently more than just a house. Graceland serves as a memorial and museum of Elvis Presley, with several of Elvis’ cars and guitars being presented in and around the home. There are several segments of the Graceland area, and it is unclear which parts of Gracelands Kanye will but Kim. The entire Graceland estate could cost Kanye over 250 million dollars.
Kanye may no doubt see Graceland as an investment opportunity. Graceland attracts 500,000 visitors a year. However, it’s unlikely that the same people that love Elvis will also be big fans of Kanye West. Oh well.
