Kanye West joined his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West at their daughter Chicago’s fourth birthday party on Saturday – hours after claiming he’d been banned from the celebration.
The 44-year-old rapper took to Instagram to wish little Chicago a happy birthday after claiming he “wasn’t allowed to know” where the youngster was spending the day and urged his fans to give him their “support” in his struggles with his estranged wife.
He said during an Instagram Live on Saturday afternoon:
“Y’all, I was just wishing my daughter a public happy birthday. I wasn’t allowed to know where her party was, there’s nothing legal that’s saying that this is the kind of game that’s being played.
“It’s the kind of thing that really has affected my health for the longest and I’m just not playing. I’m taking control of my narrative this year.
“I’m being the best father — the Ye version of a father — and I’m not gonna let this happen. … Chicago, Happy birthday. I love you and I’m just putting this online because I need y’all’s support.”
Kim was shocked by the accusations. This was because the estranged couple decided on having two parties for their daughter.
“Kanye was always supposed to have Chi at 4. They pre-agreed to have two separate events and it was his idea,” said a source to Page Six.
“Kim was shocked that he went on live accusing her when it was his idea to begin with to have two separate parties. 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 source continued.
