If you’ve been far away from pop culture or are not informed about the matter, Kanye West was diagnosed with bipolar disorder some time ago. People with this mental illness often fluctuate between depressive and manic episodes, which can be different in each individual.
This isn’t the first time the famous rapper has made controversial comments through his Twitter account. Apparently, he is going through another bipolar episode. The rapper mentioned that his life was similar to what the movie “Get Out” portrays. Not only that, but also revealed that his wife, Kim Kardashian, tried to commit him to a mental health institution without his consent.
On the night of July 20, the famous rapper started a Twitter rant, where he revealed several aspects of his personal life that surprised many of his followers. On the controversial posts, he mentioned his wife’s name and compared his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, to the North Korean dictator Kim-Jong Un. He also showed a screenshot where we could see a text he sent to Kris, asking her to urgently “call him and stop ignoring him.”
The rant about his mother-in-law did not end there. He also mentioned that many of Kim’s important decisions on her career were heavily influenced by Kris Jenner, indirectly accusing her of being a manipulator. He also mentioned that Kim would never do that to the daughter they have together, North, who is also the famous couple’s firstborn.
Not only he attacked the Kardashian-Jenner family, but he also mentioned some other big names, including Shia LaBeouf and Anna Wintour. But nothing got as serious as the accusations he made towards his family. Kanye said that “his family should be living next to him.” He’s currently in Wyoming, while the rest of the family is in Los Angeles.
Everything started going downhill after Kanye’s first rally, which took place in South California. The rapper talked about many topics during the rally, including that he and his wife considered getting an abortion when Kim was pregnant with their firstborn, North. There were enough tears to fill a dried ocean, of course!
It is still unknown if the rapper is still having a bad time, but not long ago, Dave Chapelle, the famous comedian, visited Kanye to check on him and make sure he’s okay. The comedian and other friends visited Kanye, which made him but one of the brightest smiles on his face even when his life is full of chaos.
Besides the role he decided to take in politics, the rapper still works on his music. A new record of him was scheduled to be released on July 24, but things did not go as expected, and the album has been rescheduled.
Mental health problems should be taken seriously, and Kanye’s family and friends are hugely concerned about his current status. No one should be forced to take treatment; they must voluntarily commit to improving their mental health. Let’s hope to see Kanye doing better soon!
