Kanye West is opening up about the all the drama that surfaced when he purchased a home across the street from his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

While their divorce has yet to be finalized, Kardashian, 41, filed to be “legally single” last month, stating her marriage is “irretrievably” broken.

A few weeks later, it was revealed that West, 44, purchased a $4.5 million teardown directly adjacent to the home he had designed and built with Kardashian. She bought the home from West in a $23 million buyout.

Now West has confirmed that he needed a home that was close to his children.

“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house,” West explained to Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee. “[It was] flipped into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”

“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],” West added. “He said, ‘I’m going to stay down in Atlanta.’”

“Nothing with my career, with this rap, with this media, with none of that, that’s gonna keep me from my children. And that’s what I want everybody to know,” he added. “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.”

A source previously told The Post that it all came down to “logistics” so that he “has access to them at the drop of a hat.”

Located in the Hidden Hills, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom home is outdated, with shaggy beige carpets and vintage wood paneling.

West was lucky with the timing as this was the first time the former owners had put the home and land up for sale in 67 years.

The “Donda” rapper was so desperate for the land, he offered $421,000 more than the seller’s asking price.

West recently shelled out a whopping $57.3 million for an oceanfront Malibu estate.

Meanwhile, West is also hoping to unload one of two of his Wyoming ranches, which he listed for sale for $11 million in October.
