Sources close to the couple confirm the pics were taken at music producer Rick Rubin‘s Malibu home. We’re told Rick offered the pad up to Kanye post-hospitalization as a place to escape and get his mind right.
Our sources say he stayed at the sparsely furnished home on and off for a few weeks after he was discharged. Kim and the kids would stay there regularly as well.
Kim took a lot of heat on social media for the pics. Some people thought they were just trying to look “poor” — but we’re told the pics were simply captured during a crucial moment in their lives.
