Just days following Kim Kardashian’s revelation that her 10-year-old daughter North prefers residing with her father, Kanye West, at his apartment without security or nannies, the doting dad embarked on a special daddy-daughter trip to Dubai.
The 46-year-old hip-hop artist and North were sighted having a great time at a mall in Dubai, surrounded by an entourage (as reported by TMZ).
Additionally, a video surfaced on Twitter, capturing heartwarming moments of Kanye and North engaging with fans in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
It appears that Kanye chose to bring only his eldest child, North, on this excursion, leaving his other three kids with his ex, Kim Kardashian – Saint (7), Chicago (5), and Psalm (4) – behind.
While the purpose of Kanye’s Middle East journey remains unclear, it is evident that he and North were relishing their time together.
In Dubai, Kanye sported an all-black outfit, while holding hands with North, who was dressed in an oversized t-shirt and tan shorts.
In Riyadh, both Kanye and North were clad in black, with North opting for a black football jersey.
This trip occurred shortly after Kim Kardashian divulged on the latest episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians” that North has a preference for her father Kanye’s simpler lifestyle. The show highlighted how Kanye has chosen to live in an apartment without the luxurious amenities of Kim’s Calabasas mansion, such as security, chefs, and nannies.
Kim, who retained the mansion after their divorce, shared her daughter North’s perspective, saying, “North, she’ll go to her dad’s, she’ll be like, ‘Dad is the best. He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny. He doesn’t have a chef. He doesn’t have security. He lives in an apartment.’ And she’ll start crying, ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.'”
Notably, Kanye is now legally married to Bianca Censori, aged 28. They tied the knot under a confidential marriage license in December, just a month after Kim and Kanye’s divorce was finalized.
Their union was a private affair, fueling speculation about their relationship status for several months.
This marked a significant turn in the story of Kim and Kanye, who began dating in April 2012 and held a lavish wedding ceremony in Florence in May 2014. The couple’s journey took a different course when they separated in February 2021, with Kim filing for divorce from her estranged husband.
