Kanye West accuses Kim Kardashian of ‘kidnapping’ daughter
Friday - 04/02/2022 22:18
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s split has turned even nastier, with the exes both throwing explosive accusations in public.
Kanye West has hit back at Kim Kardashian’s claims that she’s their children’s “main provider”, releasing a damning statement on Instagram in which he accused his estranged wife of kidnapping one of their kids.
“What do you mean by main provider? America saw you try to kid nap [sic] my daughter on her birthday by not providing the address,” West claimed in his caption alongside a screenshot of Kardashian’s earlier statement, reports the NY Post.
“You put security on me inside of the house to play with my son then accused me of stealing I had to take a drug test after Chicago’s party cause you accused me of being on drugs,” he alleged.
West, 44, is referring to his viral video in which he claimed the Skims founder, 41, refused to tell him the address of their daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday bash in January. He eventually made it to the party, but sources told us that he and Kardashian had pre-agreed to host two separate events for Chicago.
“Kim was shocked that he went on Live accusing her when it was his idea to begin with to have two separate parties,” the insider explained. “She was going to have hers early in the day, and he was throwing Chi her own separate party. No one was trying to stop him from coming.”
The Yeezy fashion designer ended his note by calling out KKW Beauty chief marketing officer Tracy Romulus, asking her to “stop manipulating Kim to be this way.”
West’s bombshell statement comes after Kardashian slammed her ex-partner on social media for publicly “attacking” her, claiming he’s obsessed with trying to “control and manipulate” their ongoing divorce.
Kardashian founder posted a scathing statement of her own on Instagram on Friday after her estranged husband told his followers that his daughter North was going on TikTok against his will.
“Kanye’s constant need for attacking me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create,” Kardashian, 41, said in the statement.
“As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision — because it brings her happiness.
“Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all.”
Kardashian said that all she’s wanted from the beginning of their break-up is to have a “healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship” for the sake of their four children.
“It saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way,” she said.
“I wish to handle all matters regarding our children privately and hopefully he can finally respond to the third lawyer he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably.”
West, 44, took to Instagram earlier Friday to call out Kardashian for allowing their eight-year-old daughter to post content on the video-sharing app.
“SINCE THIS IS MY FIRST DIVORCE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO ABOUT MY DAUGHTER BEING PUT ON TIK TOK AGAINST MY WILL?” he wrote.
Kardashian and North launched the joint account in November 2021.
This isn’t the first time West has publicly slammed Kardashian since they split.
Last month, the Donda artist claimed she was keeping their kids from him. He also claimed that Kardashian refused to let him attend their 4-year-old daughter Chicago’s birthday party, though he ultimately showed up for the event.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — who filed to divorce the rapper in February 2021 — shares four kids with West: daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint, 6, and Psalm, 2.
The exes have both moved on with new relationships. West is currently seeing Julia Fox while Kardashian has been dating Pete Davidson.
