Kim Kardashian & Kanye West's Mansion Is in a State of Ruin (PHOTO)

Kim Kardashian Kanye West mansion

Yeah ... wow -- so this really just isn't good. Check out this photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Bel Air mansion -- which is basically nothing more than a shell of the luxurious home it's supposed to be.

I know they were planning on doing a few renovations to the place and all, but based on how stripped down the house is -- why didn't they just tear it down and start from scratch? Or why didn't they simply buy a nice piece of land and build their dream home? It seems like they shelled out somewhere around $11 million for one huge headache -- as the mansion isn't expected to be completed until at least summer 2014.


And while it's no big surprise that Kim and Kanye want the home to be up to their standards before moving in -- doesn't it seem strange that they aren't in a hurry to speed things along? You'd think since they've been holed up over at Kris Jenner's pad for so long, they'd be itching to get out and move into a place of their own -- just the three of them.

Oh wait ... that's right. Kim and Kanye are probably getting a lot more help with North West while shacking up at the Jenner mansion than they will when they relocate to their own pad. I guess they can always hire a couple nannies -- but it's just not the same as having family around. Maybe they're so comfortable over at Kris' that they figure there's really no need to rush the move to Bel Air? Could be.

But if they keep delaying taking the plunge and starting their lives together living in a home as a family of three -- it really doesn't bode well for the future of their relationship. I mean, maybe Kim would be content living with her mom for the rest of her life -- but it's bound to start getting under Kanye's skin at some point in the near future. The dude IS royalty -- which means he deserves his very own castle ... right?

Do you think these renovations are being delayed on purpose so Kim doesn't have to leave her mom's?
