Do you want me to approach your children’s games like that? the superstar asked a dad, who then replied, “We’re a hundred.”

West shares North and Saint, as well as daughter Chicago, 5, and son Psalm, 3, with his ex-wife Kim, who split from the Grammy Award winner in February 2021.
They were married for almost seven years and just finalized their divorce in November.
It has been agreed that Kim will receive $200,000 in child support transferred to her account on a monthly basis. They will also share joint custody and have ‘equal access’ to her four children.
Under the terms of the agreement, West will be responsible for 50 percent of the educational and safety expenses of the four children, according to TMZ.
West and Kim agreed to attend mediation in case they had a disagreement about parenting, according to the outlet. If one does not attend the session, the attending parent will be able to make the decision on the subject in question.
Kim previously confessed that co-parenting with West has been “really fucking difficult” and that he has done everything possible to shield his brood from the rapper’s controversies, particularly his anti-Semitic rants that cost him his business empire last year.
To the shock of fans, it was revealed in January that West had married his Yeezy employee, 27-year-old Bianca Censori, who joined the company in November 2020.
She is listed as head of architecture and secured the position after earning a master’s degree in building design from the University of Melbourne in Australia.
Despite the wedding ceremony, the union is not legal because the couple does not appear to have produced a marriage certificate, DailyMail.com reported at the time.
The duo have been photographed wearing wedding bands since the story broke, though it’s unclear how long they had been dating.
