The rapper suffers from bipolar disorder.
39-year-old American TV star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian for the first time commented on the mental state of her husband, famous rapper Kanye West, who is running for President of the United States. Recall that Kanye suffers from bipolar disorder. About the disease wife Kim told Instastories.
It is assumed that the reason for public letter from Kardashian was Kanye’s strange behavior during the election campaign. We will remind, recently West has told how he tried to make to make his wife an abortion, and later he posted on Twitter, where he admitted that he wanted to divorce Kim (but soon deleted it).
“As you know, Kanye is suffering from bipolar disorder. Those who experienced this, or their family members suffer from this disease, I know how hard and painful all this is to realize. I never spoke publicly about how this disease has affected our family, as we are trying to protect our children and Kanye right to privacy, especially when it comes to his health. But today, I think I should comment on this due to the prevailing stereotypes about mental health,” writes Kim.
Kardashian said that in such cases, the family of the sick and almost helpless man suffering from bipolar disorder, he has to want to recover, without considering the attempts of family and friends to help him.
“I understand that Kanye is a public person. And his actions can cause a negative reaction. It’s beautiful, but challenging a person who is under the pressure that he is an artist and black man, painfully suffered the death of her mother. He tries to cope with the regime of isolation, and bipolar disorder only complicates things. Those who know Kanye, you know that his words are not always equal to his intentions,” says Kardashian.
Also the star said that bipolar disorder her husband in any case “does not detract or invalidate his dreams and plans, no matter how big or unattainable they may seem”.
Kim thanked everyone for their support and asked to treat this situation with understanding.
