Amid what seems to be a severe bipolar episode, Kim Kardashian West is talking out in protection of her husband Kanye West.
Taking to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, the truth TV star publicly addressed his struggles with psychological well being, in addition to why she and her household have been unable to get him assist. In an try and make clear the rapper’s present state, Kim wrote:
“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. 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.”
Perhaps it was West telling the viewers at a South Carolina political rally how he and Kim thought of aborting North West that the momma of 4 felt pushed to talk up at the moment.
Regardless, she continued
“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.”
Further, the momma of 4 added:
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. 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 with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to same. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding.
