Teyana Taylor, Kanye West

While one rapper continues to defend her questionable parenting skills, Kanye West's friends are praising him for being a doting dad to his 3 children, including daughters North, 5, Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2.

Soon after announcing he was moving back to his hometown of Chicago, Kanye sent for his only son. Since moving to the Windy City, father and son have been inseparable.

In an interview with Us Weekly, singer Teyana Taylor praised Kanye, 41, for his hands on approach with his children.

"He's such a great father," gushed Teyana. "We always share different tips of how we handle our kids and different things like that. It's good. He's overall a good guy," said Teyana, who shares 2-year-old daughter Iman Shupert Jr., aka Junie, with NBA star Iman Shumpert.

Teyana, who is signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music label, said Junie has play dates with Kanye's 3 children.

"It's crazy because we're always so busy," she tells Us Weekly. "They just kind of meet on set. Whatever set we're on, he brings his kids, I bring my daughter, and they kind of just get up like that."

Kanye deleted his Twitter and Instagram pages following the public backlash to his show of support for embattled President Trump during an appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend.

Teyana said Kanye's "intentions are good," even if he may not come across that way on social media.

"We're in a world where everything is only one minute long," she said. "You've got a minute to get your point across. I think his soundbites are very, very, unfortunate. He's one of the people where you have to just sit in a room and really just talk to him, and at the end of a four-hour conversation, you understand him a little bit better."

    At least he does parenting right. ????? That’s all I’ve got.

  • Maxx

    I love that someone said this. I think it's true. Kanye does make some valid points if you get over the sensationalism of what he is saying, but he needs to be clear when making his points, because their is always more than one way to interpret someone else's truth. Dig deeper.

  • Tiff J

    Junie is only 2. Wow, feels like she should be at least 5. Seems like she's been around forever.

    True its the way he says things... if he broke down things clearer I think more ppl would understand the way he thinks and why he feels like the way he feels on different topics..

  • Soda

    Praising Kanye is probably one of the requirements of having any of her albums released.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker...

  • Renee26

    Who said he was a bad father??????

  • Dahl

    I just want to know who has four hours to listen to anybody just to understand their point...

  • Renee26

    True but nonetheless they are HIS opinions so people shouldn't put so much weight onto what he says further feeding his God complex.... Opinions are like azzholes we all have one

  • Renee26

    Just a little bit of understanding at that. ?

  • TMW

    Girls need their father too. People are praising Kanye for taking his son to Chicago with him. What about the girls? I truly believe that mothers nurture their children, but they get their identity and sense of self from their fathers.

  • Dahl

    Right??? ??

  • hi-liter

    Whatever ?....he buys them whatever they want and prolly lets wild out and doesn’t discipline them......Yeah that’s great parenting for Hollywood type children. Some of thesr children require a whole different type of parenting. Life is usually extremely fast for them.

  • hi-liter

    You better say that again.

  • hi-liter

    ? ?? I cannot

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Has anyone been to one Teyana's concerts? Every time I see a clip she is humping a chair or a female pseudo celebrity. Just curious if it's good

    He said what he said! There's nothing to be broken down and dissected.

  • Renee26

    Right... Daddy time should be shared by all equally and it's soooo important for girls to have a bond with their daddies as well.

  • Renee26

    I highly doubt there's any discipline... Kim already admitted she let's North pretend like she's still an only child.... Which may explain why the kids are taken to the car separately. Kim is allowing North to control the situation instead of explaining sibling relationships and correcting the actions. Kim even said the reason she's considering another child is because North said Saint needed a brother to play with so he would leave her alone and the boys could live in one wing and the girls in the other.

  • SweetTEE

    How the hell can he parent some kids when he needs a parent himself?..foh

  • Wyteprivilege

    lolol!!!! Good damn point! I’m a professor and don’t even care to be understood after about an hour.

  • Kayke

    His “points” don’t seem like his. Kanye reminds of my 6 yr old niece who eavesdrops on a conversation, remembers some names, maybe the day being talked about, or the places.... but no other details when she tries to tell the story to someone else. Regurgitation, without he himself understanding what he’s saying.... that’s why when he’s challenged, he can’t clarify his stance.

  • Judge Mental Will

    ??

  • TMW

    I know I’m being Captain Obvious, but girls with daddy issues have absentee fathers.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Really Teyana? I bet those 6 nannies those kids have are more hands on than anyone. Where's the person who's supposed to be supervising Kanye?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Kim favors the girls. She let Saint go without a second thought.

  • more

    She stopped breast feeding Saint because North was jealous.

    I feel so bad for Saint. The men dont do well in this family because they focus on the girls. I see Saint with the nannies more than i do the girls!,

  • dru and neil

    Yeah this is a shameless butt kiss, we all know that man is a fool, nobody cares about is parenting skill, wasn’t Kim just saying how he was jealous of their son needing his mommy’s attention, not too long ago?

    Stop it! Kim only takes North to concert events and photoshoots. I would argue that she neglects Saint

  • more

    The rich and wealthy do. They don't have 9 to 5 like us.

    If I was wealthy i would tell him to take his time explaining his point. While I sip on some expensive shyt.

    Unfortunately im poor i would slap him and tell him to get to the damn point!!

    When you see children with nannies constantly what would you think?

    She needs to move to Rock nation. They underutilize her

  • TMW

    You stop attacking an opinion different than yours! Nobody said anything about Kim. Neither of them are good parents, and they aren’t raising their kids - the nannies are. Kim treats her kids just like she treats her siblings - like props or the supporting cast for her reality show.

    This blog has been singing Kanye’s praises for the last couple of days talking about he’s a good dad because he has Saint with him. I happen to think all his kids needs his attention, whatever that means for them. But I was actually speaking of parenting in general.

    I love when I come on here and there are like 5 new posts. This is my favorite blog because she keeps it real, she doesn’t kiss ass or bow down to celebrities, replies to posters herself and never ever tries to get you to think like her.

    She wakes you up subliminally with certain posts and You either catch it or you don’t.

    True, but absentee doesn’t mean away from the home. Absentee means having no real presence in the person’s life. A lot of men think just being there is enough, but it really is about the time spent building producfive relationships with their children.

    George Stinney Jr of African descent was the youngest person to be sentenced to death in the 20th century in the United States.

    He was only 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair. During his trial, even on the day of his execution, he always carried a bible in his hands, claiming to be innocent.

    He was accused of killing two white girls, 11-Year-old Betty, and Mary of 7, the bodies were found near the house where the teenager resided with his parents.

    At that time, all members of the jury were white. The trial lasted only 2 hours, and the sentence was dictated 10 minutes later. The Boy’s parents were threatened, and prevented from being present in the courtroom, and subsequently expelled from that city.

    Before the execution, George spent 81 days in prison without being able to see his parents.

    He was held in solitary, 80 miles from his city. He was heard alone without the presence of his parents or a lawyer.
    He was electrocuted with 5,380 volts in his head, imagine all that voltage in a teenager’s head.

    70 years later, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in READ MORE

He looked crazy when he said it and that for sure wasn't the time or place to say it. smh I think folks are so use to reacting that they don't even care about what the actual message is suppose to be anymore. If someone people like says something dumb then it's "you know what they mean" or " you know what they were trying to say"... Let it be someone they don't like then it's "it doesn't matter what they meant or what they were trying to say"

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Say THAT so true.... he said it then and because people did not like Bush he was a "hero" in that moment but now he is the opposite. I do not like Trump at all but I feel Kanye be on the shenanigans to get people attention so he can spread his little messages and thoughts he have in his head and the way he does it is just not "the popular way" just like you said but now days a lot of folks listen to respond and not to understand... I am an over thinker on everything I like to know what make people tick and why they do the things they do lol but I so agree with your post because I see it everyday.

    Listen.. I see Kanye as the kid that wants attention..he just realized that he is in the news a whole lot more for the negative things he say so he has tunneled down that route.. He know how to direct your attention to him and then BOOM he drops an album..most cop it to see if he has returned to normal many more cop it just to see how far off the cliff did he jump, Either way he gets paid.I don't know if anybody watch wrestling. But the Bad Guys get paid the most because people like the villan. People say they don't like this man but still keep an ear out for his next level of foolishness.. get now?

    I stopped listening to ANYTHING Kanye after the passing of his mother....thought he was crazy during the Bush comment and now I just think he's a lunatic!! IDK the man personally, but I damn sure know something isn't right.....Kim has some bearing on the depth of his insanity, IMO (Kardashian coochie seems to do that to these men: reference Lamar O. and Khloe). To me, whether he was trying to pay "homage" to Beyonce when stepped in front of Taylor or trying to convince me the Tump likes blk ppl, I can't respect it b/c it's too outlandish to even process! I call a spade a spade, wherever, whenever, or whomever! Fuc*kery is FUC*KERY and this man is just that! I do like how he deals with his kids, so I can only hope that the move and the (soon to come) divorce is good for his mind, body, and soul! Still think him and TT are cray AF though!
