Kanye West defends buying a house on Kim's street amid divorce, more news

Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 8: Kanye West says he bought a house across the street from his ex, Kim Kardashian, because he takes "solace" in seeing the four children he shares with his estranged wife. "My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule," Ye tells Jason Lee in a new "Hollywood Unlocked" interview, due out Jan. 17 (via People). "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." In December, TMZ reported the rapper had purchased a $4.5 million "teardown" home a few doors away from his ex and their children, North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3 and Psalm, 2. If any factors besides the kids were "flipped into" reporting on the sale, it may have been because Ye's purchase came shortly after he publicly pleaded for her to come back to him, despite her February 2021 divorce filing. Speaking to Jason, the rapper also said he bought the house because of his own experience growing up with parents who'd split. "You see when my mom took me from Atlanta to Chicago, my dad didn't come to the coldest and most dangerous city in the world to be next to [me]," he explained. "He said, 'I'm going to stay down in Atlanta.'" Kanye went on to assert: "Nothing with my career, with this rap, with this media, with none of that, that's gonna keep me from my children. And that's what I want everybody to know. Don't play with me, don't play with my children. Ain't no security gonna get in between me and my children and you ain't gonna gaslight me." In a statement to People, Kim's lawyer, Laura Wasser said, "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."
