Two months after Kanye West took his first step in Wyoming and bought a massive 4,524-acre ranch for $ 7.7 million in October 2019, he bought another, bigger ranch for $ 14.5 million.
Located in Greybull, the sprawling property, known as Bighorn Mountain Ranch, spans over 6,700 acres and was used as a haven for the rapper after his divorce from Kim Kardashian in February.
While his first ranch, Monster Lake Ranch in Cody, was used more to host public events, Sunday masses and concerts, his second ranch is where West, 44, lives and writes his music.
The two ranches are approximately 50 miles from each other.
According to a source, Bighorn Mountain Ranch, which has a total of seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, is where West found peace after their split and where he premiered his 10th studio album, “Donda,” which is expected come out at some point. in the near future.
âThis album is from Yeezy,â a source told The Post of the album, due for release on Friday. âI wouldn’t call it the divorce album, but he really got into it after the divorce. Every day.”
“And I would say the mountains of Wyomingâ¦ all this endless space where he could really find comfort, was kind of therapy for him and helped create what I think is one of his best albums to date,” added the source.
The ranch has been described as âan upscale paradise with excellent views, wildlife and privacy,â according to the listing.
The Post has reached out to representatives for West for comment.

Probably the coolest part of this ranch are the dinosaur fossils that have been found on earth in the past.
The listing reads: âKnown for the abundance of shell fossils located in the area, nearby exposed formations such as the Cloverly Formation and the Morrison Formation have yielded numerous fossils of dinosaurs and other animals.
Two heated helicopter platforms are also set up for year-round access to the ranch, which is only a short 10-minute helicopter flight from Greybull.
Property records show renovations have been done since West purchased the resort in June.
The ranch has abundant wildlife, with approximately 3,500 elk traveling each year and between 1,500 and 2,000 elk using the ranch.
Originally built by the Flitner family in 1906 on a property known as Cow Camp, the Bighorn Mountain Ranch has grown over the past 100 years, adding surrounding area and encompassing over 20 square miles. Agriculture was crucial to the Flitner family at the time, and they owned over 160 acres of land in Wyoming.
Improvements to the ranch also consist of a five-bedroom, four-bathroom log home with a commercial kitchen, dining room, living room, wraparound deck, and large wood-burning fireplace.
The property also has three cabins that can accommodate four to six people with full bathrooms and optimal privacy and views.
Next to the main lodge is the galley cabin which includes a commercial kitchen and expansive deck with ranch views, plus sleeping quarters for two, according to the listing.
Additional features include an outdoor kitchen area with a fireplace and grills.
Although the album’s release was scheduled for midnight on Friday, âDondaâ remains unreleased, in a Kanye-expected way.
Wearing a full face mask, a puffy red jacket and red pants, West showed up at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday night to perform some of the songs from the album – which is named after his beloved mother Donda. West, who died in 2007.
Surprise debuts include Jay-Z, who reportedly recorded his verse for the album’s last track at the last second earlier Thursday.
West received family support of her ex Kim Kardashian, 40 – who brought their children North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 – as well as her sister KhloÃ© Kardashian, 37.
It is evident that West remains heartbroken after the breakup as he became moved while performing “Love Unconditionally” – crying as he rapped about “the loss of my family”.
