American star Kim Kardashian, 39, went to Instagram Wednesday morning after her husband Kanye West‘s Twitter collapse late at night, saying she “has no power” over him for psychiatric help and called him “brilliant, but complicated.”
“Those who understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” Kardashian wrote in a series of stories to her 180 million followers: “I understand that Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions can sometimes cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who, in addition to the pressures of being an artist and a black man, experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that increased his bipolar disorder.”
“Those who are close to Kanye know his heart and understand that his words sometimes do not align with his intentions,” said the media.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I have 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 their health.” But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health,” said Kardashian, who has been married to the rapper since 2014 and has four children with him: North (7), Saint (4), Chicago ( 2) and Psalm (1).
“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can judge and not understand that the person himself must be involved in the process of getting help no matter how hard his family and friends try. Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate your dreams and creative ideas, no matter how big or impossible they may feel for some. That is part of his genius and, as we have all witnessed, many of his great dreams have come true,” she continued in her disclaimer.
“We, as a society, talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the people who live with it when they need it most. Thank you to those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and understanding. With love and gratitude, Kim Kardashian West ”, she concluded.
Last night, the 43-year-old singer accused his wife of trying to lock him up and compared his mother-in-law to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. “Kris (Jenner, his mother-in-law) and Kim released a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do. White supremacy”. He also said he had tried to separate from the businesswoman when his wife met rapper Meek Mill in a hotel in November 2018.
After a few minutes, West deleted all but the last message, seeming to confirm that he will continue his intention to compete for the presidency of the United States in the November election.
On Monday night, in another frenzy of writing, he had accused his wife of wanting to hospitalize him.” Kim was trying to go back to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up, like in the movie Get Out, because I cried about saving my daughter’s life yesterday,” wrote the rapper in the message that has already been erased from his social network. A few hours earlier, the musician had held his first rally in South Carolina, where he revealed that he and his wife were about to abort their first daughter North, but that a “call from God” prevented it. Some statements that shocked the family clan.
