The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reports that rapper Kanye West is reportedly interested in buying Graceland for his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, according to British newspaper the Daily Star.

The home, a designated national landmark, is currently owned by Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.

The Star quotes an anonymous source close to Kardashian as saying, “There have been constant whispers that it’s due to go on the market, as long as it stays open to the public and as a place for Elvis fans to visit.
