Is Kanye West moving to Chicago by himself?

Kim Kardashian West is not moving to Chicago.

The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was upset when her husband Kanye West announced to a crowd last week that he was returning to his home city and “never leaving again” because it was the first she’d heard of it, but she has reportedly told the “Bound 2” hitmaker she’s not leaving Los Angeles.

A source told The Sun online: “Kim’s whole life is in LA — her family, her offices, her trainer, her stylists and her staff. About 25 people would have to move with her! She loves her kids growing up so close to their cousins and she loves seeing her mum and her sisters every day. She’s never lived anywhere but LA, and she’s upset that Kanye is saying things like this publicly when they haven’t even talked about moving. She’s told him it’s not happening.

“They’ve just spent millions renovating their LA home and she’s too exhausted to think about moving again. She knows Kanye loves Chicago and it makes him feel close to his roots, but there’s no way she’d consider moving [there] full time.”

The 41-year-old rapper has made no secret of the fact he loves his native city, and Kim tried to accommodate that by agreeing to name their baby daughter after the Illinois city when she born at the beginning of the year via a surrogate.

It’s thought Kanye is desperate to move back home because it’ll make him feel closer to his beloved mother Donda West — who died in 2007 — but Kim is convinced his late momager and her father Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003, are watching over them in Los Angeles in the shape of two black birds.

The 37-year-old reality TV star said recently: “Kanye and I always reference birds. We seem to see a lot of black crows. Yesterday Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together. We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.”

Kim and Kanye have three children, North, 5, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 9 months, and they are considering adding another to their brood.
