As claimed by TMZ Friday in a bizarrely hyper-serious fashion, Kanye West reportedly surprised Kim Kardashian this week with word that he had secured a "mega-unit" in an exclusive Miami Beach condo building.

The 4,700 square feet right-on-the-beach space has 4 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, and a fittingly massive terrace. The deal is expected to be finalized in January. Per a separate report from Page Six, the building itself also includes units owned by lead Goldman Sachs chairperson Lloyd Blankfein and Citadel founder Kenneth Griffin. Of course, both West and Kardashian have been known to frequent the general Miami area by way of Art Basel and Dash history.
