We May Have Figured Out Where Kim's Instagrams Are Coming From

No, not grandma's house.

When Kim Kardashian West made her return to her kingdom (Instagram) with this adorable family photo a week ago, people were really excited to see her back on the internet.

And after some very deep research, it seems evident that the house does belong to Def Jam founder and legendary producer Rick Rubin.

Which makes a lot of sense, as he and Kanye are longtime collaborators.

Let's begin with Exhibit A: BBC Radio 1's tour of Rubin's Shangri-La recording studio in Malibu in 2014.

Exhibit C: Rubin's kitchen also looks exactly like the one in which Kanye was pictured eating. The pink backsplash, the blue line, the scalloped cabinets, and the window above the sink are all the same.

When reached for confirmation that the Wests were at Shangri-La, a representative for Rubin said, "I think it’s most appropriate for this to be answered by Kim or Kanye’s representatives." But publicists for the couple did not reply to BuzzFeed News' request.

Still, it seems very apparent that the Wests were not visiting distant relatives, or at their pool house, or at an Airbnb they booked for a photo shoot; they were just chilling at Uncle Rick's house.
