Sources told The Sun, Kim is currently living in a modest 2-bedroom, 1,600 sq. ft. apartment in Encino, California. The property was purchased by Kyle for $520,000 in 2015.
She decided to buy the pad one month after Kim had been arrested for the second time. The Bravo star’s new digs come with a pool, jacuzzi, and is located behind a gate.
The apartment is only minutes away from the $8 million mansion Kyle shares with her real estate agent husband Mauricio Umansky.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kim is facing serious financial issues at the moment.
She has two active liens filed against her for unpaid tax bills. In the first lien, the State of California says Kim owes them a total of $70,021.60 for the years 2015 & 2016.
A second lien filed in July 2020 accuses the former RHOBH star of owing $20,762.08.
The grand total for Kim’s debt comes to $90,783.68. On the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle revealed she lost contact with her sister Kim.

Kim and Kyle have a long history of fighting over money. In the past, Kim accused Kyle of stealing a family home from her.
Kim hasn’t appeared as a full-time cast member on the Bravo reality show since 2015. She was one of the original cast members but has only appeared as a guest following her season 5 departure.
Despite her lack of recent work, Kim has hope on the horizon. She is set to release her memoir The Whole Truth: The Reality of It All later this year. Kim reportedly received a $300,000 advance for the tell-all.
The book has experienced a bunch of delays due to the pandemic but is finally being published. At one point, the memoir was reportedly scrapped altogether.
Dey Street Books, a division of HarperCollins, is behind the book.
