Kanye West continues to defend his status as a father. The rapper took to social media over the weekend to once again address the notion of his and Kim Kardashian’s oldest daughter, North West, being active on TikTok.
“I just got off the phone with Kim,” Kanye shared in a now-deleted Instagram video on Sunday (Mar. 13). “I told her to stop antagonizing me with this TikTok thing,” the rapper said. “I said, ‘It’s never again.’ I am her father. I know y’all don’t respect fathers and the idea of family and the media tries to promote something. I said, ‘I am not allowing my daughter to be used by TikTok, by Disney. I have a say-so.'”
Kanye West has expressed his desire to keep North off TikTok on several occasions. The celebrity was especially clear about his stance during an interview with Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked.
“Don’t have my daughter wearing lipstick on TikTok, or don’t have her on TikTok at all, if I’m not there to approve that,” Kanye shared during the interview. “It was done without me knowing,” the rapper said in reference to his daughter doing TikTok videos alongside her mom.
“I didn’t have a say-so on whether or not they went to Sierra Canyon,” Kanye West said during his rant on Sunday. “Most men do not,” the celebrity father added. “There’s no such thing as 50/50 custody in society today – It always leans toward the mom, and I’m happy that you guys got to see such a small piece of what I dealt with,” West further explained.
“I don’t have custody,” Kanye continued in his rant this past weekend. “I had to fight to have my kids not (sic) on TikTok,” Kanye alleged in another video that has since been deleted. “It’s always been a gang,” the rapper said of the Kardashian-Jenner family. “It’s like we’ve never had Christmas anyplace else other than one location,” Kanye shared in reference to the tradition of Christmas at Kris Jenner’s house.
Kanye ended his rant by telling his supporters that he did not want his kids to attend “godless” Sierra Canyon School. “Leftist don’t want fathers to have no say in our children’s lives,” the celebrity father shared. “I got a voice and I’m not having this.”
