KANYE West is apparently not a fan of his young daughter North wearing makeup and posting on TikTok, and he's taking his anger out on ex Kim Kardashian.

In an interview on Hollywood Unlocked, the 44-year-old rapper opened up about a variety of ongoing issues with his ex, and the way she is raising their children.

But one of the biggest issues he has dates back to Christmas, when North gave herself a holiday makeup makeover to look more like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Grinch.

In a pair of festive TikTok's, the eight-year-old first applies orange makeup to her face and red makeup to her nose to look like the famous reindeer, as the classic Gene Autry song plays in the background.

A follow-up video finds North, still in full makeup, lip-syncing to an audio quote from the live-action version of The Grinch.

The sight of his daughter in dancing in makeup on the video site set Ye off.

"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," he said during his interview.

"It was done without me knowing and it happened again so I feel like it's poking the bear, trying to antagonize me or create this 'crazy' narrative.

"To say someone is crazy, they're trying to take the power away and do anything to get people to not pay attention to me."


That wasn't the only time Kanye lashed out over how his kids are being raised.

Also during the sit-down with Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee, the sneaker designer claimed he was BANNED from daughter Chicago's fourth birthday party and is now he's threatening "legal action" against his estranged wife.

"I'ma tell you straight up, don't play with my kids," Kanye said on the show.

"Don't play with my kids. Whoever y'all work for, whoever y'all think the family is working for, I'm telling you right now, don't play with my children.

"And it's going to be all legal. It's going to be all legal, baby."

He added: "You ain't finna gaslight me, it's going to be calm like this. But that's not what we finna play."


Ye credited Kylie's boyfriend Travis Scott with cluing him in.

"I just gotta shout out Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time and making sure I was able to spend that birthday memory with my daughter and to be there with the rest of the family," Kanye said.

He went on to reveal that Kylie let him onto the property after security guards attempted to keep him away.

Kanye was thrilled to be allowed at the event, but as The Sun previously reported he and Kim spent the day apart.

The co-parents stayed on 'opposite sides' of the party.

A source said of the event: "When he finally got the address he arrived like a bat out of hell in a rental car around 1pm, driving himself without any security.

"He seemed ok once he started talking to the family and was in great spirits laughing and playing with Chicago, it seems he just wanted to be involved in her day and didn't want to cause trouble."


A source recently told The Sun Kanye has a problem with the way Kim approaches many aspects of parenting - especially when it comes to fashion.

The insider said: "He also feels like the kids are turning out like 'mini Paris Hiltons' with the way she dresses them now.

Per the source, Kanye is aware he is at fault for some of the bad blood between himself and Kim.

"Kanye knows he has made mistakes and now wants to make amends and be able to see his kids," the insider said.

Kim filed for divorce from the entertainer in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.

"But he feels like Kim is making it weird and acting cold towards him.

In addition to North and Chicago, Kim and Kanye share kids Saint, six, and Psalm, two.

As Kim has moved on with Pete, Kanye recently started dating actress Julia Fox, 31.

Stop using social media to bash your child's parent. When two parents can't even get along separately for the sake of their kids it says a lot about their character.

Jerri Thompson

Yes, that would be a no no. Kids posting on any social media and especially in make-up seems a little too much especially since perversion is a big deal these days.

I see a child play with her mother's make up, expressing herself with her art like her father, except differently. A future theater actress getting into character. Why, is this a story though, let the child be a child, and mind out of her parents relationship business.
