KanyeWest is revealing all about the drama surrounding his purchase of a house across the street from Kim Kardashian.
While their divorce has yet to be finalized, Kardashian, 41, filed to be “legally single” last month, stating her marriage is “irretrievably” broken.
A few weeks later, it was revealed that West, 44, purchased a $4.5 million teardown directly adjacent to the home he had designed and built with Kardashian. She bought the home from West in a $23 million buyout.
Now West confirmed that he required a home close to his children.
” My solace comes from my children and having a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,” West explained to Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee. “[It was] was flipped to there was something wrong in me getting a home next to my children .”
“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 added. He said, “I’m going down to Atlanta. ‘”
“Nothing in my career with this rap and with this media. With none of that, it’s going to keep me away from my children. He added, “That’s what I want everyone to know.” “Don’t play along with me, and don’t play alongside my children.” There is no security between me and my children, and you aren’t going to gaslight me .”
A source previously told The Post it came down to logistics so that he could “have access to them at any time.”
But Kardashian’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser told Page Six it was “news to us” that the children were being kept from West.
“Mr. “Mr. “Both parents’ priority was always the children maintaining strong bonds between their parents during this transition and beyond .”

Located in Hidden Hills, this five-bedroom, four bathroom home has shaggy beige carpets, and vintage wood paneling.
West was lucky with the timing as this was the first time the former owners had put the home and land up for sale in 67 years.
The “Donda” rapper was so desperate for the land, he offered $421,000 more than the seller’s asking price.
West recently shelled out a whopping $57.3 million for an oceanfront Malibu estate.
Meanwhile, West is also hoping to unload one of two of his Wyoming ranches, which he listed for sale for $11 million in October.
