BEVERLY HILLS, July 22, (THEWILL) – Television reality star, Kim Kardashian, has come out for the very first time to confirm that her born-again rapper-husband, Kanye West, is suffering from bipolar disorder.
THEWILL reports that Kanye had recently accused Kim and his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner of trying to lock him up and also condemned their kids’ Playboy magazine photo shoot.
The rapper also described his stay with his wife as similar to that of a ‘Get out movie’, saying that he has been looking for a way to divorce Kim.
However, reacting, Kim in a statement released Wednesday blamed said Kanye has been struggling with the mental ailment.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life 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 added that the family is powerless in helping the rapper because he is not a minor.
Kin further said: “People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individuals themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
“Kanye is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man has experienced the painful loss of his mother.
“He also has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
“Living with bipolar 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.”
The Kardashian star urged for understanding from the public and the media as she tries to get through for the well-being of her husband, Kanye.
