Kanye West reveals why he bought a house across the street from Kim Kardashian
Kanye West alludes to a major drama about why he bought a house right across from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
In a new interview with Hollywood Unlocked podcast, West, 44, gets heated when he says “no security” “comes between me and my kids,” adding in the clip, “and you’re not going to gaslight me.”
It looks like West is suggesting Kim is trying to restrict his access to their kids, but a source close to the Hulu reality star tells TMZ that it isn’t.
Explaining why he bought the house, Kanye said, “My comfort comes from seeing my kids and being on a regular schedule. That’s why I even got the house.’

The purchase came two months after he moved his former $3.7 million, 4,200-square-foot bachelorette home into the gated community and just two weeks after Kim filed to be legally single.
It was later revealed that West plans to tear down the property and build a new space for himself.
For the most part, the former couple’s divorce went smoothly and the former couple had acted kindly towards each other for the past year.

He also released a diss track targeting Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson, who threatens to “beat his a**.”
