Kanye West has explained the reason behind his decision to get a house from across the street of his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian’s home.
The rapper shared this in a sit-down interview with Jason Lee from the new Hollywood Unlocked Studios in Los Angeles and got candid about a number of issues.
In a clip of his upcoming interview with Jason, Kanye explained that his kids, daughter North, 8, son Saint, 6, daughter Chicago, 3½, and son Psalm, 2½, bring him a lot of peace and solace which is one of the reasons why he purchased a home right across the street from his estranged wife, Kim.
“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house. They flipped it in the media like it was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids,” he said
As it was previously reported, Kanye bought the $4.5 million home and reportedly paid $421,000 over the asking price. Of course social media users assumed he did that intentionally to monitor Kim and her new relationship but Ye makes it very clear that he just wanted to be close to his kids. He shared his own experience about how his mother moved him from Atalanta to Chicago and his father didn’t come at all.
He told Jason,
“it’s nothing where my career, rap, this media, none of that, that’s going to 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, and ain’t no security gonna get between me and my children; and you ain’t finna gaslight me and you ain’t gonna run this narrative on me.”
