YOU have to hand it to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – they know how to make money.
The superstar couple have sold their Bel Air mansion for £13.5 million – making themselves a cool £7 million profit.
Kim and Kanye – who are expecting their third child together via a surrogate – bought the property back in 2013 and completely renovated it.
It’s not known how much they spent on the renovations, but it’s believed to be in the millions.
According to TMZ, the deal is the most expensive sale ever in the exclusive Bel-Air Crest community.
The house, which sits on an acre of land, is 10,000 square feet and was bought by Ukrainian philanthropist Marina Acton, who is currently based in Silicon Valley but is moving to Los Angeles to pursue a music career.
She says she found the house “creative and inspiring.”
Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye are in a frantic rush to get renovations on their £15m house finished in time for the birth of their third child in December.

The couple bought the house in Hidden Hills, California, back in August 2014 from Lisa Marie Presley – but have never lived in it.
Instead, they’ve been constantly doing renovations to improve it.
“The Hidden Hills house has turned into the most ridiculous project – and it’s cost so much,” a Kardashian insider told The Sun Online.
“The renovation and design of the Hidden Hills was Kanye’s big showpiece project – he wanted it to be another one of his masterpieces, but three years on Kim has put her foot down and given a one month deadline to the interior design team as she wants to start 2018 living in the house as a new family.
“Ideally they would be in for the holidays, but she doesn’t want to ruin Christmas by putting that pressure on the situation.
“Kanye ordered marble from Italy and it’s taken the supplier ages to fulfil the order.
And he keeps changing his mind on details. And there’s this super-rare wood coming over from Brazil too.
“Each room must be perfect before the next one can be started, and that was slowing things down a lot.
There’s a warehouse of furniture sitting there waiting – it’s things like not being able to decide which wall art goes on because the light isn’t right, things like that.
One piece has been repositioned over a dozen times.
“Costs on the project have overrun by millions.
Of course, she’s happy to pay out to make the house incredibly secure after the Paris robbery. But she’s over the delays now – she just wants to move in.
The eight bedroom, ten bathroom mansion was originally made over just after the couple bought it in August 2014 – but Kanye reportedly changed his mind and the house was ripped apart to start again.

While all of the work was being done, Kanye, Kim and the couple’s children North and Saint were staying with Kim’s momager Kris Jenner nearby.
Being interviewed by Jennifer Lawrence recently, Kim said she hoped they’d be in their new house “soon”.
