Kim Kardashian West has shared a message about her husband Kanye West and mental health.
In an Instagram Stories post on Wednesday, Kardashian West acknowledged that West has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and said it’s “incredibly complicated and painful” for many to understand.
Kim said ‘his words sometimes do not align with his intentions’ after Kanye last night claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.
“I have been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the [Waldorf] for ‘prison reform.’ I got 200 more to go,” the “Famous” artist, 43, wrote.
Addressing the issue, Kim said: “As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,’ she wrote.
“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 call her husband a “brilliant but complicated” person and pointed out the struggles he has dealt with, including the loss of his mother, Donda West, in 2007.
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions,” she continued. “He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close to Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”
Kardashian West’s post comes three days after West held a presidential campaign rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, in which he emotionally spoke about his faith, his late mother and his family. The appearance caused some media personalities and others on social media to speculate about West’s wellbeing.
