Being rich has once again proven to be an excellent way of scoring tons of spendy stuff for free.
It looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and fam have secured the posh New York crash pad they were looking for. According to a Page Six report earlier in August, reps for the pair were trying to land a $30 million apartment in the city — which might typically fetch a rental price of around $100,000 monthly — with the arrangement being that they’d stay rent free for a few months and publicize the house on their social media channels in exchange for Airbnb picking up the check.
Well, flash forward just a week or so, and now we have Kim Snapchatting her way through some exposure for a fancy New York dream home, including posting shots of herself in bed, and in a robe on the apartment’s river-view rooftop.
According to the Airbnb listing, the property is actually a 7,200-square-foot penthouse with 4,400 square feet of outdoor space spread over seven terraces.
There's an outdoor kitchen, sauna, home gym, and private pool.
Inside there are five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
The selling price according to the listing? "$25 million and worth it."
On her Instagram, Kim made clear — as is legally required — that the arrangement was a "gift" from Airbnb, and her social love was not simply coming from the bottom of her heart.
Although the most recent Airbnb coup, Kim and Kanye’s wheeling and dealing is far from unprecedented. Consider Mariah Carey’s $60 million rental in Italy, or Britney Spears’ $30 million place in Malibu, or Zendaya’s $18 million Brazilian manse — all thanks to the booking site and its high-profile celebrity marketing strategy.
