"Kim take my kids out of Sierra Canyon now," the message read. "It's a fake school for celebrities that are used by ‘the system.'"

In the caption, the musician wrote, "At this point, everybody knows what 'the system' is code word for. "

He continued, "I was removed from my dad by the system and the system removed me from my children," adding, "When the system drafts athletes they avoid working with those who have their father in their life because they are harder to manipulate."

Ye concluded the caption with a poignant statement, affirming, "My two oldest know [who] they daddy is."

Kim and Ye are parents to four children: North West, 10; Saint West, 8; Chicago West, 6; and Psalm West, 4.

Ye's Past Meltdown

This isn't the first instance of Ye addressing his children's schooling publicly, prompting Kim, 43, to bolster security back in 2022. Reportedly, the reality TV star invested in enhanced security measures for her children's school following a string of her ex-husband's outspoken rants at the time.

In a prior episode of emotional distress, Ye divulged the name of his children's school, prompting Kim to allocate additional funds for security as a precautionary measure. TMZ reported that the SKIMS founder's decision stemmed from "concern that someone could see his messages about the school and show up on campus," rather than viewing the rapper himself as a direct threat.

That year, Ye sparked controversy by sharing a text message exchange about schooling between him and Kim.
