Jonathan Cheban is reportedly weighing up whether to purchase a £16 million mansion in London.

The 42-year-old PR guru - who is Kim Kardashian West's best friend - is said to have been house-hunting in the British capital for when he comes over for shopping trips at his favourite department store, Harrods.

A source told MailOnline: ''He needs to be within 250 metres of Harrods for his weekly shopping sprees - he's spent thousands in the store while he's been in London.''

However, Jonathan only wants to spend half of the year at the lavish abode in between featuring on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.

The insider added: ''He is keen to move here for six months of the year and will split the remainder of his time in New York and Los Angeles when filming 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians.'''

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star is reportedly in the producers of the E! show's bad books as he has not come back to Los Angeles to shoot.

They added: ''Jonathan is in trouble for not returning for filming, but he will not leave London until he has found his dream home.''

It comes after momager Kris Jenner kicked off because he agreed to take part in UK TV show 'Celebs Go Dating'.

A source previously said: ''Kris and the show's producers have kicked off because Jonathan has refused to fly back to Los Angeles, as well as missing Kim's big Dubai trip.

''Jonathan staying in London really throws 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' production into a spin because they need continuity throughout the show. They went him to go back to LA, but he's in London filming a couple of TV shows and is refusing to budge.''

But after Kim - who took three months out of the spotlight last year after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris - got wind of the news, she reportedly made it clear how furious she was.

A source said: ''Kim has been quite clear that she isn't impressed that he is doing the programme, although she would love nothing more than for her friend to be settled and happy in a relationship.''
