In a new interview with Hollywood Unlocked podcast, the 44 year old said, “Earlier this week, Monday, when I went to go pick my kids up from 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 added telling host Jason Lee that he 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.”
The Jesus walks hit maker shares four children with Kim Kardashian West which they are currently co-parenting together; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
Kanye also said it was security who informed him he couldn’t go inside the residence, but alleges that he hadn’t spoken to Kardashian West about the restrictions.
“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,” West continued, before claiming that Kardashian West’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, was inside the house.
“And I am hearing that the new boyfriend is actually in the house that I can’t even go to. And 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.”
The Yeezy founder adds that he sent his two female cousins to speak to Kim, “Yes, my female cousins, non-aggressive, 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.”
In the same interview, Kanye did seem to hint on Kim’s kiss with Pete Davidson they shared during a Saturday Night Live 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.’
Like any other parent, West makes it a point to state the media can make jokes and report anything they want, but no one gets in the way of him and his children.
“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,” he expressed. “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.”
As for getting home next to Kim, he explained: ‘My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house.’
‘[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.’
