To say things are tense in the Kanye West-Kardashian family would be an understatement.
Following Kanye West’s semi-publicity tour to discuss his candidacy for president, the superstar rapper retreated to his Wyoming ranch to decompress after a failed campaign rally in South Carolina.
But Kim Kardashian just offered a stark revelation about her husband Kanye West.
We should all have empathy for Kanye West. Nobody can argue that Kanye West isn’t a musical genius, but he sometimes gets confused because the reality is he can’t communicate some of his thoughts coherently.
But that’s not his fault because he’s a diagnosed bi-polar, according to his wife Kim Kardashian. Also, he was going through an “episode” at this time because he had not taken his necessary medication.
Kardashian pleaded with the public for empathy by writing, “As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar [sic] 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.”
And she was wise to write this because it’s necessary context. Let’s not construe things here either; it’s not like West hasn’t been right about a lot of things. West asked Black America why they were supposed to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden instead of Trump.
Biden put Black Americans disproportionately in prison, while Trump gave them jobs. Biden said “you ain’t black” if you’re a Black American and don’t vote for him, while President Trump has never said anything remotely close to that. It shouldn’t be a difficult decision and that’s the point West Is making.
And while West was speaking truth to power, Dave Chappelle noticed what was happening and reportedly stopped everything he was doing so he could be with his friend. And this may have been toxic gaslighting and manipulation because following that report, West announced to his wife Kim “Please forgive me.”
West tweeted, “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
And then on Monday, Kim Kardashian flew to Wyoming to meet with her husband where the paparazzi at TMZ captured pictures of the two having an intense emotional discussion in their car.
And West is apparently putting his name on the New Jersey ballot for a presidential spot. West and all of his supporters are truly deluding themselves if they think he’ll end up on the ballot in the next 90-plus days.
It’s not that West shouldn’t absolutely run for office if he wants to because this is a democracy and that’s his right, but all of the indicators point to his announcement being purely spontaneous. Perhaps West will have a good chance to get his ducks in a row before 2024.
