Last week, Kanye West's interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson took the internet by storm.

During two sit-down conversations, rapper and fashion designer West declared himself pro-life and announced that he performs "for an audience of one and that is God".

He also criticized pop star Lizzo over her weight and leveled a bizarre and entirely unfounded accusation against the executives of the Gap clothing chain, claiming they knew about the Uvalde school shooting "before it even happened".

However, it turns out that West's most explosive statements didn't even make the final cut.

According to Vice - which on Tuesday released several clips of axed interview moments - the 'Stronger' artist made far more outrageous comments than those Fox chose to air.

Among the statements made by West in the interview was a particularly wild suggestion that "fake children" had been placed in his house, Vice reported - although the outlet appears not to have included footage of West discussing said "fake children".

The rapper has four kids - North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 - all of whom he shares with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

Per Vice, West clarified what he meant by "fake children", telling Tucker: "I mean, like actors, professional actors, placed into my house to sexualize my kids."

He then specifically references the "so-called son" of an associate, saying: "We don’t, we didn’t even believe that this person was her son because he was way smarter than her, right?"

West - who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder - spoke in another interview back in 2019 about how when he is having an episode he feels like "everyone is now an actor".

"Everything's a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you're being recorded. You feel all these things," he told chat show host David Letterman at the time.

After speaking about the "fake children", West reportedly segued into a claim that his child had been "kidnapped" on her birthday.

"Everyone saw in broad daylight these public figures kidnap my Black child on her birthday," he told Tucker. "I did not know the location of the birthday party and Travis Scott had to give me the address. When I showed up, they were so frazzled. If that's not the most Karen-level thing, to feel like you can take a Black child and not give the father the address."

He continued: "This is the way people are treated when they get out of prison, when they go to prison. And 100 percent, I am in a glass prison or else I'd be the one with the say so over where my children go to school."

This is not the first time West has claimed that he was not allowed to see his daughter Chicago on her birthday. After he made the allegation on Instagram, Kardashian's sister Khloe hit back in a comment, writing: "Enough already. We all know the truth and in my opinion, everyone's tired of it. You know exactly where your children are at all times and YOU wanted separate birthdays. I have seen all of the texts to prove it."
