Kanye West has addressed why he has bought a house directly opposite the home of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
West, 44, was interviewed by Jason Lee for the Hollywood Unlocked podcast, set to be released next Monday, and said the decision was solely down to their co-parenting duties.
‘My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,’ the rapper said. ‘[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.’
However, alluding to some tension, West also said there would be ‘no security’ that would ‘get in between me and my children,’ adding in the clip: ‘and you ain’t gonna gaslight me.’

The comments come after reports claimed West is still ‘pursuing’ his ex Kardashian, 41, despite having moved on in a new relationship with Julia Fox.
The pair share four children together which they are currently co-parenting; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
West also discussed how his move to Chicago as a child affected his decision-making as a father, after he and Kardashian filed for divorce last year.
‘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 revealed.

‘And that’s what I want everybody to know. 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.’

The purchase came two months after he listed his $3.7 million, 4,200 square-foot, former bachelor pad in the gated community and just two weeks after Kim filed to be declared 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 has gone smoothly, and the former couple had been acting cordially towards each this past year.
