Inside Kanye’s ‘therapy’ ranch where ‘Donda’ came to life post-divorce

Two months after Kanye West made his first move in Wyoming and purchased a massive 4,524-acre ranch for $7.7 million in October 2019, he bought another, bigger ranch for $14.5 million. 

Located in Greybull, the sprawling property, known as Bighorn Mountain Ranch, spans over 6,700 acres and has been used as a safe haven for the rapper following his divorce from Kim Kardashian in February. 

While his first ranch, Monster Lake Ranch in Cody, has been used more to host public events, Sunday mass and concerts, his second ranch is where West, 44, lives and writes his music. 

The two ranches are about 50 miles apart.

According to one source, Bighorn Mountain Ranch, which comes with a total of seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, is where West has found peace following his split and where he created his 10th studio album, “Donda,” set to be released at some point in the near future. 

“This album is all heart from Yeezy,” a source told The Post of the album, which was intended to be released Friday. “I wouldn’t call it the divorce album, but he really dived into it after the divorce. Every day.”

“And I’d say the Wyoming mountains… all this infinite space where he could really find some solace, was a kind of therapy for him and helped create what I think is one of his best albums yet,” the source added. 

The ranch has been described as “high country heaven with excellent views, wildlife and privacy,” according to the listing. 

The Post has reached out to West’s reps for comment.

Probably the coolest part of this ranch is the dinosaur fossils that have been discovered on the land in the past.

The listing states: “Known for the abundance of fossil shells located in the area, nearby exposed formations such as the Cloverly Formation and the Morrison Formation have yielded numerous fossils of dinosaurs and other animals.”

Installed are also two heated helicopter pads for year-round access at the ranch, which is just a short 10-minute flight via helicopter from Greybull.

The ranch has an abundance of wildlife, with an estimated 3,500 elk that travel through yearly, and between 1,500 and 2,000 elk that use the ranch.

Initially built by the Flitner family in 1906 on a homestead known as Cow Camp, the Bighorn Mountain Ranch has grown over the last 100 years, adding surrounding acreage and encompassing over 20 square miles. Farming was crucial to the Flitner family at the time and they owned over 160 acres of land in Wyoming.

The improvements at the ranch also consist of a five-bedroom, four-bathroom log home with a commercial kitchen, dining room, living area, wrap-around deck and a large wood-burning fireplace.

Although the album was slated for release at midnight Friday, “Donda” remains unreleased, in an expected Kanye-esque manner. 

Rocking a full face mask, a puffy red jacket and red pants, West did show up at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday night to play some of the songs on the album — which is named after his beloved mother Donda West, who passed away in 2007.

Surprise debuts include Jay-Z, who reportedly recorded his verse for the album’s last track at the last second earlier on Thursday.

West received family support from his ex Kim Kardashian, 40 — who brought their kids North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 — as well as her sister Khloé Kardashian, 37. 

It is evident West remains heartbroken after the breakup as he got emotional while performing “Love Unconditionally” — crying as he was rapping about “losing my family.”
