    Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Are So Rich, They Have People Fly In From Europe To Repair Their Floor If It Gets Damaged

    Ahh, the lifestyles of the rich and famous!

    You've seen the pictures.

    You've heard about this weird contraption that they apparently call a sink.

    can someone PLEASE explain the sinks at kim & kanye's house

    So I think it's fair to say that the Hidden Hills mansion is lavish and almost beyond comprehension, something that was reinforced in a recent Forbes interview with Kanye.

    In the profile, more details of the mansion are revealed. It's described as having a "lushly landscaped exterior" — a contrast to the walls inside, which are bare and a "monastic shade of white". Sounds homely!

    But things get a little more interesting when it's revealed that the floors are made of a delicate material — "special Belgian plaster" — and that if it gets scuffed or damaged it can only be repaired by a special crew that has to be flown in from Europe.

    Here's the floor in the background of Kim's 73 Questions with Vogue.

    Yes, that's right — if the floors in Kim and Kanye's home get damaged, they get people from thousands of miles away to come fix it.

    Of course, the idea was all Kanye's. Kim said: "I’ve never seen anyone that pays such attention to detail." I guess that's one way of putting it!

    But, of course, Kim and Kanye are doing everything they can to keep the floor in pristine condition. In fact, the interviewer even mentions that they were asked to wear "cloth booties" over their trainers when they entered the house.

    Considering how much it costs to get that floor repaired, you can't really blame them for being a little protective!
