Kim Kardashian West Finally Breaks Silence After Kanye West’s Twitter Rant and Addresses His Bipolar Disorder
All eyes have been on Kim Kardashian West as her husband Kanye West has been going through quite a disturbing time for all to see. After announcing his run for the presidency, West has been releasing a number of incoherent statements, including some referring to his relationship with Kim. Now the reality star is finally speaking on her husband’s condition.
Kanye West is running for president
Seemingly out of nowhere, West announced on the Fourth of July that he would be running for president.
He later revealed that he would be running under the Birthday Party and that he believed that the coronavirus vaccine could be the mark of the beast that would stop people from entering the gates of heaven.
Kanye’s Twitter rants
Over the last few days, Kanye has tweeted a number of alarming things.
“Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “If I get locked up like Mandela… Ya’ll will know why.”
“Kriss don’t play with me,” he wrote in a follow up tweet. “You and that Calmye are not allowed around my children. Ya’ll tried to lock me up.”
He continued, saying that the horror film Get Out was about him.
“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 daughter’s life yesterday,” he wrote.
Things escalated early this morning when the rapper tweeted that he has been trying to split from Kim.
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the [Waldorf] for prison reform,” he wrote before deleting the tweet.
What does Kim have to say?
Kim took to Instagram to break her silence and defend her husband.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she wrote. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. 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. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
She went on to address comments that people have made about her inaction regarding his mental health.
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
She went on to describe all of the things that Kanye has been through like losing his mother and the pressure that comes with being a Black man and an artist.
“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions,” she wrote. “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”
She finished the note by asking people to show empathy to Kanye and her family as they deal with the situation.
