Forgive my husband, his bipolar disorder heightened—Kim Kardashian reacts to divorce claim
The wife of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has called on the public to pardon the behaviour of her husband for claiming their marriage was about to hit a rock.
According to her, Kanye begins to say unreal things when the pressures of his health condition heighten.
In a post on her Instagram page on Wednesday, the sultry model indicated that it was not an easy task to live with a person suffering from bipolar and urged the public to understand them.
“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” she cried.
Kim Kardashian noted that her husband was brilliant but complicated and on top of being an artist and a black man, he also has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
“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,” she said.
She observed anyone who has such disorder 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,” Kim Kardashian stated.
She further stated that people who were unaware or far removed from such experience could 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.
“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 some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true,” Kim Kardashian added.
She encouraged the society to talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, adding “we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.”
Kanye West on Tuesday shocked fans as he hit his Twitter handle that he had been “trying to get divorced” from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.
‘I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform.”
Kim Kardashian earned glowing praise from Meek Mill last year, when the rapper called her a ‘friend’ and hailed her for “doing a lot of good work” on prison reform, but the nature of the alleged hotel meeting is not clear.
Meek and Kim both attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in November 2018, but it was at the Jeremy Hotel rather than the Waldorf in Beverly Hills which Kanye appeared to be referring to.
He went on to tweet that ‘Meek is my man and was respectful… that’s my dog’.
Kanye deleted his late-night tweets barely 30 minutes after posting them, except for a final post in which he signed them off as coming from “the future president.”
His shock divorce claim comes after sources had alleged that his wife and him were already ‘living apart’ and have been ‘at each other’s throats’ with ‘daily bust-ups’ during lockdown.
It had previously been claimed that the couple had, at one point, been living at opposite sides of their home during the coronavirus lockdown.
