It was revealed this week that the pair’s marriage is “over” and Kim, 40, is speaking to divorce lawyers – and she’s keen to move on by getting rid of the eight-bedroomed home they spent six years building together.
Sources say Kanye, 43, is taking the opportunity to bring his Sunday Service to Europe after looking at potential properties in London last October.
An insider told The Mirror: “Once the divorce is finalised, Kanye has told pals he sees his future in London.
“He is keen to expand his Sunday Service Choir in Europe and thinks the English capital could be a good base.”

Kanye and Kim share four children together – daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one.
Last October Kanye and North were seen in London wearing tops to promote the rapper’s presidential campaign.
Friends claim the SKIMS founder wants to sell the $60m Calabasas mansion for a ‘fresh start’ away from Kanye.
“Kim never loved the house, she felt it was cold and like living in a museum,” says a source close to the family.
“The process of getting it built was chaotic as Kanye was always changing his mind and starting over and now, the house represents the chaos of the marriage to her.
“It had bad memories – if she keeps it in the divorce, she’ll likely sell it and move somewhere close by for a fresh start,” the insider added.
“She won’t go far – she wants her children to grow up close to their cousins – but she won’t stay in the house.
“The first thing she’s doing is bringing in loads of couches and cushions and making the ‘museum’ cosy, until she can sell it and buy a new place for the next chapter in her life.”
The minimalist property boasts eight bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a cinema, basketball court and a huge swimming pool and is fully decorated in white, beige and cream, with Kanye taking credit for much of the property’s design.
With the reported breakdown of their relationship, the two are free to go their separate ways.

It was recently revealed that at one point the Yeezy star wanted Kim to move their family to a new home in Atlanta before their marriage crumbled.
The Flashing Lights hitmaker wanted to leave LA and buy a house in Georgia, where he’s been building a ‘church’ and spiritual space to host his Sunday Services.
But insiders say Kim refused and told him she wouldn’t move her children away from their family in California.
“Kanye came to Kim with this plan that the family should all move to Atlanta, where is he in the middle of a project to build a ‘church’,” says the insider.
“He was talking about a new start and a new life and full of plans, but Kim put him straight and said there would be no move to Atlanta for her and the kids, and their future was in LA.
“She even suggested he would be happier, creatively, if he moved there alone. I think that was the final straw for her – she doesn’t want to move away from LA – her life is there, her work is there and she wants her children to grow up with their cousins.”

Multiple sources first confirmed to Page Six that Kim is “done” with the controversial hitmaker as split “is imminent.”
Kim is believed to have hired a lawyer – known as the “disso queen” – who has has previously worked with in the past.
The star’s lawyer once represented Kim in her 2013 divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries.
Kim and Kanye’s marriage hit plenty of obstacles in 2020, kicking off with the entertainer’s infamous presidential rally in South Carolina – where he claimed they considered aborting their daughter North.
Through their martial issues, the duo found themselves “living separately” as Kanye hung back in Wyoming, while Kim stayed in Los Angeles and celebrated the holidays with her famous family.
