The rapper, 44, will appear on an upcoming interview on Hollywood Unlocked where he told host Jason Lee via ET: ‘Earlier this week, Monday, when I went to go pick my kids up from school, the security stopped me at the gate.
‘So at that point, security was in between me and my children and that’s what was not going to happen. But I didn’t want to argue about it. So I just chilled, took my kids to school, and then took my kids back.
‘I am driving. I bring them back and North was like, “I want you to come upstairs and see something.” And it’s like, “Oh, Daddy can’t come see something. Daddy can’t come inside.” But that hadn’t been defined.’
Kanye, who shares four children with Kim, 41, added that he heard that Pete, 28, who Kim is said to be dating since their split, was claimed to be inside the house at the time.
He added: ‘Security ain’t going to be in between me and my children, and my children ain’t going to be on TikTok without my permission.’

Kanye also spoke out about buying a house across the street from Kim, explaining that it was so he could remain close by for his children, North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
He explained in a clip released ahead of the full interview dropping: ‘My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule.
‘That’s why I even got the house. They flipped it in the media like it was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.’
Kanye had bought the $4.5million (£3.3million) home, reportedly paying over the asking price, to ensure he was never far away from his children.
He explained: ‘It’s nothing where my career, rap, this media, none of that, that’s going to keep me from my children, and that’s what I want everybody to know: Don’t play with me, don’t play with my children, and ain’t no security gonna get between me and my children; and you ain’t finna gaslight me and you ain’t gonna run this narrative on me.’
