West displayed his usual sense of fashion as he rocked a dark hoodie and his well-worn Balenciaga rubber rain boots.

The Donda hitmaker finished his look with a pair of black jeans.

He appeared to be in a somber mood as he stared down photographers with his hands in his pockets. 

However the fashion designer was kind enough to snap a pic with a fan who waited outside.

Meanwhile Mensa – who was recently arrested at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. on drug related charges – sported a black hoodie with a matching puffer jacket on top.

The entertainer paired his look with oversized camo-print pants and black platform boots. In his hand he held a black canvas tote bag.  

Mensa – born Victor Kwesi Mensah – was taken into custody and arrested for felony narcotics possession in mid January, after arriving on a flight from Ghana.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release, his luggage allegedly contained ‘about 41 grams of liquid Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), about 124 grams of Psilocybin capsules, 178 grams of Psilocybin gummies, and six grams of Psilocybin mushrooms.’

Earlier in the day West continued to publicly hash out his grievances about sharing custody of his four kids with estranged wife Kim, 41.

A day after criticizing the reality star for allowing their daughter North West to use TikTok, the rapper claimed his ex is preventing him from taking their little ones to Chicago for a basketball game.

‘I WANT TO BRING MY KIDS TO MY HOME TOWN OF CHICAGO TO SEE MY BASKETBALL TEAM PLAY FOR 7 THOUSAND PEOPLE AND KIM IS STOPPING THAT HOW IS THIS JOINT CUSTODY?’ he fired on Instagram

Additionally, he shared a throwback photo with his late mother Donda, who passed away in 2007.

On Friday, Kardashian and Kanye were embroiled in a bitter war of words all over social media after the rapper said North was being put on TikTok ‘against his will.’

Kardashian reportedly has strict rules when it comes to her eldest’s TikTok use, including not allowing her to have the app on her own phone after she went live without her permission in December.

Additionally, the elementary school student must have adult supervision to use her TikTok account, according to TMZ.

The row started as the father-of-four shared a picture of his eldest child on Instagram asking in the caption, ‘Since this is my first divorce I need to know what should I do about my daughter being put on TikTok against my will?’

Hours later, Kim hit back on her Instagram slamming Kanye’s ‘constant attacks’ on her, accusing him of causing their family ‘pain’ in a lengthy statement, where she referred to herself as the ‘main caregiver.’

Kanye then responded again, screenshotting Kim’s statement and posting another response saying: ‘What do you mean by main provider ? America saw you try to kidnap my daughter on her birthday by not providing the address.’

‘You put security on me inside of the house to play with my son then accused me of stealing I had to take a drug test after Chicago’s party cause you accused me of being on drugs. Tracy Romulus stop manipulating Kim to be this way.’

Tracy Romulus is the Chief Financial Officer of Kim Kardashian West Brands and a close friend of the Hulu reality star.

In Kim’s lengthy rebuttal of Kanye’s initial post, she wrote: ‘Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create.’

‘As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision – because it brings her happiness.

‘Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all.’

‘From the beginning I have wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship because it is what is best for our children and it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way.’

She finished her post by stating: ‘I wish to handle all matters regarding our children privately and hopefully he can finally respond to the third attorney he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably.’

It comes just a month after Kanye stated in a podcast that he did not want North to appear on the social media platform, saying: ‘I’m not there to approve that.’

The post shows a screengrab of North in a TikTok video that was posted three days ago from the young one’s official account, that is shared with her mother Kim.

‘Kim and North’ currently has 5.5million followers and features a number of videos starring North with appearances by Kim.

The account stipulates in the bio that it is ‘managed by an adult’, presumably her mother.

In the original video, both North and her mother Kim are shown moving the camera around and lip-syncing to a song, attracting over 1.4million likes from fans.

Kim started the account back in November last year. The comments on the account are disabled, protecting North from any negative or inappropriate comments from trolls.

Last month, Kanye gave a heated interview with Hollywood Unlocked where he hinted that Kim, 41, was somehow preventing him or making it difficult for him to see their children.

He also stated that he did not want his daughter on TikTok.

‘Don’t have my daughter wearing lipstick on TikTok, or don’t have her on TikTok at all, if I’m not there to approve that,’ he said.

‘It was done without me knowing and it happened again so I feel like it’s poking the bear, trying to antagonize me or create this ‘crazy’ narrative.’

Despite these comments, Kim continued to post videos of herself and North on their shared TikTok account.

Meanwhile, on the subject of having access to his children, Kanye said on the podcast that ‘no security’ is going to ‘get between me and my children’ adding: ‘and you ain’t gonna gaslight me.’

He also claimed that Kim’s security had prevented him from visiting North on her most recent birthday when he was ‘stopped at the gate.’

Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February last year, and relations between the former couple had initially been cordial, with the Hulu reality star helping the rapper promote his last album Donda.

However, things turned sour once Kim moved on romantically with SNL star Pete Davidson.

Despite Kanye also moving on himself, with Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox, the rapper has become more hostile when talking about their custody arrangement with the kids.

However, Kim’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser has since 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.

Outside of their co-parenting issues, there have also been signs that Kanye is not happy about moving on with SNL star Pete, 28.

It was claimed last month that Kim was forced to change her vacation plans from Dominican Republic to the Bahamas, because the rapper had planned to follow them there.

At this point, Kanye had just met actress Julia, 32, on New Year’s Eve in Miami, where Pete was performing his special NYE show with singer Miley Cyrus.

Weeks later, the rapper released a track where he dissed Kim’s man Pete, threatening to ‘beat his a**.’

'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
