“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,” Ye told Hollywood Unlocked. “[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”
He said that his own move from Atlanta to Chicago as a kid also spurred his decision. “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. “He said, ‘I’m going to stay down in Atlanta.’”
“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,” Yeezy added. “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.”
In late December, Kanye bought the single-story ranch home in Hidden Hills for $4.5 million. The property boasts four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on about 3,600 square feet of land.
Ye is still actively dating Julia Fox, with the pair making consistent headlines since New Year’s Eve. In a new episode of her podcast Forbidden Fruits with Niki Takesh, Fox spoke on the relationship, telling her co-host, “For right now, I’m just living in the moment and I don’t have any expectations,” Fox said. “There’s no labels, there’s none of that. It’s just people that make each other feel better. It’s really, like, such a Gemini-Aquarius connection. It’s very inspirational.”
She also said she was in the studio with Ye and Future, calling their new material “fucking insane.”
