Kanye West was every bit the doting dad at his daughter Chicago’s birthday party, after claiming he was not ‘allowed to know’ the location of the bash.
Hours after sharing footage of himself seemingly in search of the festivities on Instagram, the 44-year-old rapper appeared in photographs from the celebration as he helped his little girl enthusiastically hit a hot pink piñata.
While ringing in his toddler’s fourth year of life, alongside friends and loved ones, he rocked a black leather jacket, matching pants and a pair of boots.

Chicago looked adorable as she repeatedly struck a piñata, in the shape of the number four, while in her dad’s arms as her friends watched.
Behind them were L.O.L dolls-inspired cutouts of her and cousin Stormi Webster, who will be turning four on February 1.
In addition to the birthday girl’s mom Kim Kardashian, Chicago’s aunts Khloe and Kourtney as well as Kylie Jenner were all in attendance with their children.

Guests at the party enjoyed cake, tons of desserts with Chicago and Stormi’s names on them and an ice cream truck.
For entertainment, there was face painting and a massive ball pit for the kids to enjoy.
Earlier on Saturday, West shared a recording, posted to Atiana de la Hoya’s Instagram account, in which he seemed frustrated about not being given party details.

‘I’m just wishing my daughter a public happy birthday. I wasn’t allowed to know where her party was,’ Kanye said in the video. ‘There’s nothing legal that saying that this is the kind of games 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 was supposed to be in Miami recording my album. My whole schedule is all based around on me being able to take my kids to school, me being there for them, making sure that I’m in their life, that’s the whole point, I have the money they take so many fathers just throughout America, they’ve been taking the fathers out of homes purposely so I’m speaking up, I’m using my voice to say, “This ain’t going to keep happening, this narrative and that… happened.”
‘It’s a lot of people that’s not in a position where they ain’t got no voice when people be playing games like this, baby mamas be playing games, the grandmas will be playing games like this, and it’s like as y’all know, that ain’t going to play like that with me.’
Confusing: However, in video posted to Atiana de la Hoya’s Instagram account, Kanye could be seen attending the party
Frustrated: West – who shares Chicago and three other children with estranged wife – recorded his thoughts as he drove around town, seemingly in search of the party, in the video
Sources, however, say Kim and Kanye had actually planned on having two separate parties for their daughter.
Kanye was set to have his party Saturday at 4PM. However, it was news to Kim and the rest of the family that he had made a video alleging he had not been invited.
The insider says the invite allegations were untrue, and Kanye was given the information about the second party once he decided to come. He is now in attendance.

Kardashian didn’t publicly respond to the drama on social media, where she uploaded a sweet birthday tribute to her little girl and documented the party throughout the day.
‘My birthday baby girl Chi Chi turns 4 today! My independent baby girl twin. You are the most lovable huggable snuggable baby girl on the planet,’ she captioned a slideshow of photos with her youngest daughter.

In a statement to Page Six, Kim’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser shutdown any notion that the children are being ‘kept’ from Kanye.
‘Mr. West being kept from the children, by security or anyone else, is news to us. Both parties’ priority has always been the children maintaining strong bonds with each of their parents throughout this transition and beyond,’ the statement read.
A source also told TMZ that all that Kim ‘has asked Kanye to do is call ahead of time when he wants to come to her house to see the children’ because she ‘simply wants some structure in order to protect her right to privacy in her home.’

West continued: ‘Earlier this week, Monday, when I went to go pick my kids up from [sic] 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,’ he claimed to the host.
‘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.
‘My daughter wanted me to go inside. I was like, I am the richest Black man and North’s father, right, and the security was able to stop me from going into the room with my daughter and that had not been defined.
The former couple share four children together which they are currently co-parenting; North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two
‘And I am hearing that the new boyfriend is actually in the house that I can’t even go to.’
Kanye then claimed that he called on two of his female ‘cousins’ to speak to security on his behalf.
‘That’s where I call my cousins. And my cousins is real opinionated, you know that. And I said, ‘I need you to go and say these two things: 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.”
He insisted that the alleged confrontation between Kardashian’s ‘security’ and his ‘female cousins; was ‘non-aggressive’ and that he ‘simply’ wanted to relay some things to his estranged partner.

‘Just to say really simply like, look, for us to be – Certain words I don’t like, co-parent – like, from where I am from, you’re my baby mama. So for us to be cordial and civil, there are certain things that are not finna be done and be done under the rug,’ Kanye said.
Later in the interview, Kanye once again alluded to Kim’s beau Pete Davidson by bringing up the kiss they shared during a Saturday Night Live sketch when she hosted back in October.
‘This is for anybody that’s going through a separation, and people intentionally do things to be mean and hurt you… to be playing games,’ he said.
‘How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me, and everybody’s like, ”Aw, that’s cool.”

He continued: ‘I can have my principles and things I’ve changed things, and I backslide, and I haven’t been the best Christian and things the media can make seem some kind of ways… But at the end of the day, I’m Jesus gang.
‘I’m about family, just me and my kids, parenting. And I mean, my kids’ mom we not together. I’m still gonna be the best dad.’
Sweet: Kanye West , 44, is reportedly planning to tear down the home he has purchased for a whopping $4.5 million across the street from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, 41, and their kids (Kim and Kanye pictured with North and Saint)
The comments come after reports claimed Kanye is still ‘pursuing’ his ex Kim, despite having moved on in a new relationship with Julia Fox.
For the most part, the former couple’s divorce has gone smoothly, and the former couple had been acting cordially towards each this past year.
There have also been reports that Kim is happy that Kanye has found a new love interest in Uncut Gems star Julia, giving the relationship her full blessing.
However, West surprised fans by releasing a diss track aimed at Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete, threatening to ‘beat his a**’ over the weekend.
