As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar [sic] disorder…I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health…Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions…I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.

“People think he lost his mind just because he cried. The way he lost his mind and jumped on a jet and then jumped off the jet to come back to his 40,000-acre ranch? Yeah, I’d like to lose my mind like that,” Dash said. 

Dash also says that Kanye has enough people around him who are ensuring he’s in the best mental state possible.

“There’s definitely people around him that love him and he’s going to be all right. We are praying, we are working. People think like we are in an insane asylum [but] we got an album coming out,” he insisted.

TMZ reports that Kim has forbid Keeping Up With the Kardashian producers from filming anything related to what’s happening with Kanye.

A source tells the media outlet that Kim is in protective mode of her and West’s four children and does not want the footage available for her children to see of their father in the future.
