Kanye West’s complicated relationship with his medication

In 2017 West announced to the public that he has a bipolar disorder diagnosis. Since then, West has been opening up more about his journey and experiences with living with bipolar disorder. Recently, he seemed to take his medical matters into his own hands. One individual reached out to The Sun to share some inside insight. The source explained, “Kanye came off his bipolar meds to finish the album shortly before his outburst at the rally and on Twitter—he believes they stifle his creativity.” This isn’t the first time West has taken things in this direction. 

In 2018, he revealed in an interview with The New York Times how he truly believes his bipolar medication can be a hindrance to his life and creative process. As a result, West had admitted to previously going off his medication for upwards of six months. The famous rapper claimed that he did it for the sake of his music, but many professionals spoke up about why West’s actions and beliefs actually perpetuated myths and lies surrounding mental health and medication.

West has been active on Twitter, to say the least. Though the tweet has since been deleted, West has recently revealed that divorce has been a topic of discussion between him and Kardashian. After sharing some very personal information about the couple’s history, West publicly apologized to Kardashian. In the Tweet, the musician wrote, “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.” Things seemed like they were potentially getting better, but that did not last. 

West’s tweets were also directed at his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner. West shared that he became very upset when it seemed like Kim Kardashian West was attempting to fly out to Wyoming with a doctor to try to help him. On July 20th West tweeted, “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.” Shortly after the rapper decided to shift his attention and tweets to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner. He sent another tweet out reading, “Kriss [sic] don’t play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Y’all tried to lock me up.” West also posted a screenshot of a text message that he sent to Jenner indicating that she was avoiding his phone calls. 

What footage was recently released that indicated the tension between Kanye West and Kris Jenner may have started years ago?

Some of West’s fans may have been surprised to hear about the ongoing tension or drama that may be taking place between West and Jenner. However, recently there was footage released that indicated there may have been some ongoing negativity between the two of them for a while now. When old footage of West having a mental breakdown on Keeping Up With the Kardashians resurfaced many people probably began to wonder and speculate about Jenner’s role and relationship with West.

One source seemed to perfectly capture what everyone’s probably thinking and shared with People, “He’s had huge blow-ups with Kris. She sees how erratic he’s acting and is most concerned about her daughter’s brand. She’s also trying to be a good mother-in-law, so he’s having explosive issues with her too.” Though things seem less than perfect fans and viewers are curious to see how things unfold.
