The 44-year-old rapper now says things are not so peachy, as he just implied during a bombshell interview that his estranged wife has seemingly been preventing him from seeing his kids.
The comment came during a discussion about the Yeezy founder's reason for purchasing a home across the street from the 41-year-old beauty mogul's Hidden Hills estate.
"My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That's why I even got the house," Ye told Hollywood Unlocked, saying that he didn't appreciate the way "the media" had made it seem "wrong" of him to "get a house next to my kids."
He went on to cite his own experience with separated parents, recalling his father's decision to not move with the family from Atlanta to Chicago due to his career.
Kanye said that's not and won't ever be the case for him. "It's nothing with my career, with this rap, with this media, with none of that that's gonna keep me from my children," he stated sternly. "And that's what I want everybody to know."
His tone seemed to shift as the remarks became more personal and pointed.
"Don't play with me. Don't play with my children. And ain't no security gonna get between me and my children," he told Jason Lee. "And you ain't finna gaslight me. You ain't gonna run this narrative on me."
While it's unclear what's been going on behind closed doors, Ye was just with North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, last weekend.

After the family bonding sesh, the Grammy winner reportedly spent the rest of the evening working with his team in a design studio.
There's no denying the musician-turned-designer has been on edge lately.
Despite his budding romance with 31-year-old actress Julia Fox, West seems to be preoccupied with his ex and her new boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
In fact, just a few hours ago, Kanye dissed the comedian in a rap verse that leaked online: "God saved me from the crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass."
