Ye (the artist formerly known as Kanye West) has confirmed reports that he bought a house opposite his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West and explained the purchase during an interview with Hollywood Unlocked .
Late last year, it was reported that Ye purchased a $4.5m home opposite Kim Kardashian's residence in Los Angeles after the reality TV star filed for divorce.
During his interview with Hollywood Unlocked's Jason Lee, Ye said the purchase was initiated by his desire to see his children.
"My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That's why I even got the house," Ye told the outlet. "They flipped it into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids."
Later during the interview, Ye said he is been motivated by the lack of time he spent with his father during his childhood.
"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 said, 'I'm going to stay down in Atlanta because of my career,'" West said.
"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."
Ye later appeared to issue a warning that there is no reality where he will be kept away from his children.
He said: "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."
Kardashian West filed for divorce from Ye in February 2021 after seven years of marriage. The couple married in May 2014 in a ceremony in Italy, and have four children together — North, 7; Saint, 5; Chicago, 2; and Psalm, 1.
