Officials in Wyoming are reportedly ordering Kanye West to halt construction at one of his ranches.
Park County Wyoming Planner Joy Hill told TMZ the county has instructed West to stop building on his property because his construction permit has not been approved. After West submitted his building application, county officials visited the site and told Kanye's team to stop construction. Follow-up visits allegedly show that West and his crew ignored their requests and kept working.
The building is taking place at Ye's Monster Lake Ranch. Initially, TMZ reported that Yeezy wants to build a 70,684-square-foot amphitheater on the property. Kanye told the Park County Planning and Zoning Commission that the area would be used as a meditation space. The commission was set to make a decision regarding his permit on Tuesday. Yet the topic was tabled because just hours before the meeting Ye decided to change the purpose of the structure to residential use. Now he has to stop his construction completely and resubmit a new building permit application.
Ye purchased Monster Lake Ranch for close to $14 million in September. This was the first of two, as he bought another $14 million ranch last week. Like Monster Lake, Ye's new Bighorn Mountain Ranch is located close to Cody, Wyoming. It's unclear what he plans to do with these properties, but Ye has been vocal about venturing into real estate development.
