Kanye West born June 8, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia. Kanye West and his mother, Donda West, relocated to Chicago, Illinois, when Kanye West was 3, following his parents’ divorce. Kanye West got his music career start as a producer.
Kanye West is hinting at some major drama over why he has bought a house directly opposite the home of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
In a new interview with Hollywood Unlocked podcast, West, 44, gets heated when he says that 'no security' is going to 'get between me and my children' adding in the clip: 'and you ain't gonna gaslight me.'
In an extended clip obtained by ET, the rapper - who has just admitted he did punch a fan this week - claimed that he 'couldn't come inside' Kim's house on Monday to visit with daughter North, eight, because her 'security stopped me at the gate.'
The former couple share four children together which they are currently co-parenting; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
West also alleged that Kardashian's 'new boyfriend' - who is assumed to be Pete Davidson - was 'inside' the home at the time of the incident.
In a statement to Page Six, Kim's divorce lawyer Laura Wasser shutdown any notion that the children are being 'kept' from Kanye.
'Mr. West being kept from the children, by security or anyone else, is news to us. Both parties' priority has always been the children maintaining strong bonds with each of their parents throughout this transition and beyond,' the statement read.
A source also told TMZ that all that Kim 'has asked Kanye to do is call ahead of time when he wants to come to her house to see the children' because she 'simply wants some structure in order to protect her right to privacy in her home.'
West continued: 'Earlier this week, Monday, when I went to go pick my kids up from [sic] school, the security stopped me at the gate.
'So at that point, security was in between me and my children and that's what was not going to happen,' he claimed to the host.
'But I didn't want to argue about it. So I just chilled, took my kids to school, and then took my kids back. I am driving. I bring them back and North was like, 'I want you to come upstairs and see something.' And it's like, 'Oh, Daddy can't come see something. Daddy can't come inside.' But that hadn't been defined.
'My daughter wanted me to go inside. I was like, I am the richest Black man and North's father, right, and the security was able to stop me from going into the room with my daughter and that had not been defined.
'And I am hearing that the new boyfriend is actually in the house that I can't even go to.'
Kanye then claimed that he called on two of his female 'cousins' to speak to security on his behalf.
'That's where I call my cousins. And my cousins is real opinionated, you know that. And I said, 'I need you to go and say these two things: Security ain't going to be in between me and my children, and my children ain't going to be on TikTok without my permission.''
He insisted that the alleged confrontation between Kardashian's 'security' and his 'female cousins; was 'non-aggressive' and that he 'simply' wanted to relay some things to his estranged partner.
'Just to say really simply like, look, for us to be - Certain words I don't like, co-parent - like, from where I am from, you're my baby mama. So for us to be cordial and civil, there are certain things that are not finna be done and be done under the rug,' Kanye said.
Later in the interview, Kanye once again alluded to Kim's beau Pete Davidson by bringing up the kiss they shared during a Saturday Night Live sketch when she hosted back in October.
'This is for anybody that's going through a separation, and people intentionally do things to be mean and hurt you… to be playing games,' he said.
'How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me, and everybody's like, ''Aw, that's cool.''
He continued: 'I can have my principles and things I've changed things, and I backslide, and I haven't been the best Christian and things the media can make seem some kind of ways… But at the end of the day, I'm Jesus gang.
'I'm about family, just me and my kids, parenting. And I mean, my kids' mom we not together. I'm still gonna be the best dad.'
Kanye then made comments about his children being mentioned in the media.
'They can go on SNL and make jokes, they can make jokes in the media, they can plant stories, about whoever I am dating and whatever I want to do. They can block deals, they can do all of that type of stuff, but I can tell you straight up, don't play with my kids.
'Don't play with my kids, Whoever you all work for, whoever you all think the family is working for, I am telling you right now, don't play with my children. And it is going to be all legal, it is going to be all legal, baby. You are not going to gaslight me, thinking it is going to be calm like this. But that is what we are not going to play. It ain't going to be no. And this is for all of everybody who has been in a situation like this who didn't have a voice…I got the house right next to my children.'
