Kanye West is making the news once again, this time not for his clothing line nor music, but for purchasing a home across the street from his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. Recently, Kanye did an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, setting the record straight and explaining that he lives across from Kim Kardashian because, “Nothing is gonna keep me from my children.”
“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,” West explained to Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee in his interview. “[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”
According to People Magazine, in the interview, the rapper also discussed how his own move to Chicago as a child made him want to stay closer to the kids — North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3½, and Psalm, 2½.
“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],” West said in the interview. “He said, ‘I’m going to stay down in Atlanta.'”
West continued, “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.”
West purchased the $4.5 million 1955 “family-friendly” teardown in December 2021.
A source told People Magazine that, “Kanye’s new house is a teardown. He only bought it for the location. It’s near Kim and the kids. He has a vision for the house and plans on starting construction ASAP,” the source added, “It will be family-friendly. He wants to be able to have the kids over as much as possible. Living only in Malibu was making visits more tricky for Kanye.”
