Bianca Censori has accused her husband Kanye West’s ex-wife of putting their children’s safety ‘in jeopardy’ after she claimed he was living in an apartment without security – as insiders insist the couple do have protection.
Kim Kardashian, 43, who has four children with the controversial rapper, divulged details about his apparent living situation on an episode of The Kardashians, in which she said he also doesn’t employ a chef or a nanny, opting instead for the simpler life after moving out of the $60million Calabasas compound they used to share.
But now, sources close to Bianca have refuted her comments, claiming they ‘do, in fact, have security, and no longer live in an apartment.’
Bianca, who married Kanye last December, was said to be infuriated by Kim’s ‘negative’ portrayal of her husband, and wants the SKIMS billionaire to ‘step back and mind her own business’.

‘Bianca thinks it was quite tacky of Kim to divulge this information on The Kardashians and, by doing so, she was actually putting her kids’ safety in jeopardy,’ the insider told DailyMail.com exclusively.
‘The public doesn’t need to know that their kids would be without protection at any time.
‘She just wants Kim to stop talking about her husband Kanye in a negative light to try and make herself look better.’
Kim’s public admission came as she discussed 10-year-old daughter North’s desire to live with her dad during season four of the hit show. The divorced couple also have Saint, seven, Chicago, five, and Psalm, four.
‘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”,’ she said on last week’s episode.
She added that North would cry to her, asking: ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.’
Kanye and Bianca moved into a $20,000 per month West Hollywood apartment in December when renovations began on his $57 million, 4,000 square foot Malibu beach front house.
The couple legally wed that month under a confidential marriage license, just a month after his divorce from Kim was finalized.
The newlyweds stayed without the help of extra staff and security for six months until June when they employed protection ahead of embarking on trips to Japan and Europe.
Kim’s disclosure about her ex-husband’s living situation was filmed between February and July.
According to a separate source, Kanye is keen for his children to live a ‘simpler life’ and to not be ‘spoiled’ by the trappings of their luxury upbringing.
‘Kanye loves his kids and wants the best for them and wants them to certainly enjoy what they are provided from their parents’ successes, but he also wants them to live a simpler life and appreciate what they can work hard for,’ they told DailyMail.com.
‘Kanye doesn’t want his kids to be jaded and spoiled, he wants them to know they can do anything, but it just takes a little more hard work to achieve that.’
DailyMail.com contacted representatives for Kim, Kanye and Bianca.

Construction on Kanye’s $60 million mansion in Malibu was halted after the rapper dissolved his construction company – which was handling the project – after hitting financial problems in the wake of his public anti-Semitic remarks.
Malibu neighbors told TMZ in April that the mansion was ‘left to rot’ and that they had not ‘seen anyone around for many months.’
His anti-Semitic rants also led to the loss of about $1.6 billion of his net worth and he fell off Forbes’ billionaires list.
Kanye also owns land in Calabasas, as well as a sprawling ranch in Wyoming where he spent much of his time in the final days of his marriage to Kim. It is also listed as his official marital home on his marriage certificate to Bianca.
The couple tied the knot in Palo Alto, California, on December 10, 2022, and have been determined to keep their romance low-key.
The affair paled in comparison to the lavish Italian wedding he enjoyed with Kim in 2014, which was attended by the likes of Steve McQueen and Jaden Smith, and splashed across People magazine.
But Kanye and Bianca haven’t shied away from courting with publicity having angered Italians with an amorous moment on a water taxi in Venice, which saw the rapper exposing his bare buttocks in front of shocked tourists.
The trip also saw Bianca – who is listed as an architect for Kanye’s company Yeezy – modelling a series of near-nude looks, including one which saw her carrying a purple cushion across her breasts.
The frisky boat trip was the latest in a long line of troubling behavior from the Gold Digger rapper.
His hugely successful music and fashion career imploded last year following a series of anti-Semitic scandals.
He first came under fire in October 2022 when he tweeted about “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE”, and weeks later he heaped praise on Adolf Hitler while appearing on a conspiracy theorist’s podcast.
As a result, he lost his big money deal with Adidas, was dropped by agents CAA and record label Def Jam and had the likes of Balenciaga and Vogue magazine distance themselves from him.
Last month, the New York Times claimed Adidas executives ignored his disturbing behavior, citing two incidents which allegedly took place in 2018.
Kanye reportedly asked a Jewish company executive to kiss a picture of Adolf Hitler every day as a way to show unconditional love, and he is also believed to have drawn a swastika on a pair of sneakers during a visit to Adidas’ headquarters in Germany.
Adidas said at the time that it rejected ‘these unfounded claims and will take all necessary measures to vigorously defend ourselves against them.’
