(Newser) – The Kimye camp is denying this, but it seems totally within the realm of possibility: The Sun reports that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently shelled out more than $764,000 for four toilets (which are, obviously, gold-plated) for their new Bel Air mansion. A source explains, "They expect the interior to cost twice as much as the property. They’re spending more than a million on a security system alone."

The source adds that they've also spent the same amount on kitchen gear (including a Swarovski crystal-studded freezer) as they did on the toilets, plus more than $174,00 each on six swanky special-edition beds. Of course, a source (who, we assume, is friends with Kim or Kanye) insists to Gossip Cop that the story isn't true, but we give you permission to choose to believe it anyway.

I don't know why they even need toilets. It's clear that they think theirs comes cellophane-wrapped!

With all the people out of work and trying to keep a roof over their kids heads, these two should be ashamed of themselves. How dare they spend money so foolishly.
