While their divorce has yet to be finalized, Kardashian, 41, filed to be “legally single” last month, stating her marriage is “irretrievably” broken.
A few weeks later, it was revealed that West, 44, purchased a $4.5 million teardown directly adjacent to the home he had designed and built with Kardashian. She bought the home from West in a $23 million buyout.
Now West has confirmed that he needed a home that was close to his children.
“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,” West explained to Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee. “[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”
“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],” West added. “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,” he 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.”
A source previously told The Post that it all came down to “logistics” so that he “has access to them at the drop of a hat.”
But Kardashian’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser told Page Six it was “news to us” that the children were being kept from West.
“Mr. West being kept from the children, by security or anyone else, is news to us,” she said in a statement. “Both parties’ priority has always been the children maintaining strong bonds with each of their parents throughout this transition and beyond.”
Located in the Hidden Hills, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom home is outdated, with shaggy beige carpets and vintage wood paneling.
West was lucky with the timing as this was the first time the former owners had put the home and land up for sale in 67 years.
The “Donda” rapper was so desperate for the land, he offered $421,000 more than the seller’s asking price.
ASAP Bari is finding himself in the media after a few comments he made to his Instagram are raising a few eyebrows from his supporters, being that the 30-year-old was spotted attending Paris Fashion Week alongside Pharell Williams and Kanye West, Gunna, and Julia Fox at the start of this week.
“Y’all females better watch out from These low key gay n*ggas…Y’all better stop going through n*gga texts and start looking at they pornhub Lol…F*cking girls and guys was never cool,” he wrote on his story.
“I love gay ppl by the way I hate low key gay n*ggas who deal with females but on the low date guys,” ASAP Bari continued. “Stay True to urself and others.”
While many supporters of the influencer seemed to agree with his words, others were upset about his homophobic comments, sparking outrage on social media.
Some social media users even brought up Bari’s sexual assault case from three years ago where he was accused of aggressively slapping a woman’s rear end and then demanding oral sex from her.
Since the tragedy that took place at the Astro World festival, Travis Scott has been in a bad spot in the public eye as many feel the rapper should be held accountable for the ten lives that were lost at his Houston festival.
Back in November, Travis Scott would hold a music festival with over 50,000 attendees. The pressure of so many people packed together in a tight space caused a drastic tragedy that would leave 10 attendees dead and hundreds injured. Following the festival, Scott offered to help pay for funeral costs for some of the victims of the tragedy but his offerings were turned down.
As the news of the tragedy got larger in the media, Scott began to go silent while many festivals began to remove the performer from their lineup including Coachella.
Travis Scott really wanted to perform for his fans at the upcoming Coachella festival this year, and even reportedly offered to perform for free before being denied all around.
It seems as though Travis Scott fans are trying to make their voices heard following a petition recently started for the rapper to perform at Coachella in 2023. The petition reportedly received over 70,000 signatures.
“After Coachella unfairly removed Travis Scott for Harry Styles, they need to do the right thing and rebook him immediately. Coachella switched Travis and Frank for Harry Styles and Billie Eilish? What kind of message does that send?” the petition reads.
It seems unlikely that Scott will be able to redeem himself anytime soon, however it’s surprising to see the rapper receive support from fans at this time.

The 1980’s founded education program, D.A.R.E. is speaking out against the gritty drama, Euphoria.
In a statement to TMZ, D.A.R.E. criticized the show saying it chooses to “misguidedly glorify and erroneously depict high school student drug use, addiction, anonymous sex, violence, and other destructive behaviors.”
“It is unfortunate that HBO, social media, television program reviewers, and paid advertising have chosen to refer to the show as ‘groundbreaking,’ rather than recognizing the potential negative consequences on school-age children who today face unparalleled risks and mental health challenges.”
The series is currently airing its second season. Zendaya, 25, plays the lead role and made history at the 2020 Emmys as the youngest person to win lead actress in a drama series.
The showrunners have previously defended their approach stating that the depiction on the gritty drama based around high school drug use is “honest.” Rue, Zendaya’s character came close to overdosing during an episode this season, all shown in graphic detail.
According to the CDC, fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent now ranks No. 1 on the list of biggest killers of 18-to-45 year-olds in the United States, and by a wide margin.
However, they aren’t just criticizing the show, they instead want to help HBO make a change. D.A.R.E. offered their team’s assistance, which includes members from its high school-aged Youth Advocacy Board, to present their concerns directly.
