"Kim take my kids out of Sierra Canyon now," the Yeezy fashion designer wrote in a post just weeks ago, reiterating his past claims. "It's a fake school for celebrities that are used by 'the system.'"

"At this point everybody knows what 'the system' is code word for," Ye continued in his Instagram caption. "I was removed from my dad by the system and the system removed me from my children. When the system drafts athletes they avoid working with those who have their father in their life because they are harder to manipulate. My two oldest know they daddy is."

The famous exes were married from 2014 to 2022 and share four children: North, Saint, 8, Chicago, 6, and 4-year-old Psalm.
