KANYE West “will never live in Los Angeles again” as the rapper plans to make his Wyoming ranch and Atlanta church his main homes after his divorce from Kim Kardashian, a former staffer for the billionaire exclusively told The Sun.
The 43-year-old music and fashion mogul’s ex employee says staying away from estranged wife Kim Kardashian and her “momager” Kris Jenner “will be good for his mental health” as Kim’s visits to Wyoming always left him “impacted.”
Kim, 40, filed for divorce last Friday calling an end to her and Kanye’s seven-year marriage and the stars are said to have prenup agreements protecting their separate billion-dollar fortunes.
Kim is also said to be asking for joint legal and physical custody of their children.
The one-time employee at Kanye’s $14million ranch in Cody, WY, told The Sun Kanye will still travel to LA to see his and Kim’s four kids: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3 and Psalm, 1, as well as to visit his Yeezy headquarters in Calabasas, CA.
The couple own an eight bed, ten bathroom $60million home near Calabasas in Hidden Hills which the couple spent six years creating after buying it for $20million then spending $40million renovating.
The Sun has told how Kim is considering selling that home “to make a fresh start” but still remain in the area to be close to her family and her kids’ cousins.
Kim’s mom Kris and sister Kylie both have homes in that same exclusive gated community.
Our source said: “Kanye’s going to live in Wyoming and Atlanta, LA is not going to be his home.
“He’s better off being away from her [Kim], her mom Kris and that whole environment but he’ll still see his kids.
“The divorce is going to remove a stressful situation from his life and it will be better for his mental health.
“A guy that’s as busy as him, he doesn’t need any distractions.”
Speaking about Kim’s regular visits to Wyoming prior to the divorce, the source said: “He always used to look forward to her visits at the ranch.
“He would flip that place upside down and turn it inside out before she got there to make sure she’d be happy.
“He’d clean up everything, He’d get people away and out of there and stand them down if there were too many people around or anyone she might not like.
“He went out of his way to make it ‘all about Kim.’ I saw that with my own eyes.
“But when she left he was negatively impacted, whether it be fights they had or the fact she was going.
“He was never in a good state, her visits weren’t mentally healthy for him, one way or another.”
He said Kanye is “laser focussed” and “analytical” when presented with a problem to deal with, due to his bipolar episodes, our source said.
“Guys like him are laser focussed, I’m referring to his medical condition, and he’s very analytical,” he explained.
“So when he and Kim had issues, he had to focus on that, it really occupied his time.
“God knows, this guy is being pulled in ten different directions at all times: his music, his fashion, business.
“He’s a great dad and he loves his kids, that’s not going to change.”
Kim and Kanye now have to decide how to carve up their property which also includes two acres of undeveloped land in La Quinta, CA, close to where The Bachelorette was recently filmed, a $4million SoHo apartment in New York and 320 acres of land in Calabasas.
Kanye has been building a church in Atlanta, the city where he was born and where his father Ray West still lives, to hold his famous Sunday Services.
The Sun has told how he wanted his family to move to Georgia but Kim rejected the idea and insisted on raising their kids close to her family in California.

Last year Kanye’s manager Abou “Bu” Thiam told Rolling Stone magazine Kanye is building a “100ft dome” in Atlanta and that he’s “shifting a portion of his company, Yeezy Enterprises, here.”
The Sun has also reported how demand for Kanye’s Yeezy sneakers has rocketed since news of the divorce broke, with some pairs now being sold for $17,000.
