Kim Kardashian is not building a 7,000-square-foot basketball center for Kanye West on the couple’s property, despite a slew of reports with varying degrees of inaccuracies. It’s true, Kardashian is now having a basketball court built on their estate, but it will be outdoors and it won’t be close to 7,000-square feet.

The generally reliable TMZ got the ball rolling with the inaccuracies, but a number of other outlets, including the New York Daily News and HollywoodLife, dropped the ball even more. HollywoodLies, for example, wrote, “The new b-ball center will be 7,000 sq. feet, as if the couple’s mansion isn’t already massive enough, and also include a glam room. Yes, only in Kimye’s home is there a basketball court and a glam room in the same building.”

Once again, the basketball court will not have its own building. A rep for Kardashian confirms exclusively to Gossip Cop that the court will be “OUTSIDE their home,” and it will have added space beyond a regulation basketball court of 94-feet long by 50-feet wide, but “it won’t be near 7000-square-feet.”

Kardashian began having the basketball court built as a surprise for West while he and his buddies and some NBA players shot hoops on Monday at the Staples Center in L.A. in celebration of his 38th birthday.
