Kim Kardashian West addressed her husband Kanye’s mental health issues following a series of erratic statements.
She went and wrote on Instagram;
“Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.He is a brilliant but complicated person whose “words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
Kanye is one of America’s biggest music stars, he has been in the industry for a while, and recently he announced he wants to run for President. However, his first campaign rally and several recent Twitter messages have sparked confusion and concern.
The mother of four made it clear she has not talked about how Kanye’s condition has affected their lives before because she’s very protective of her family;
“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individuals themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try. 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.”
Kim concluded by requesting for privacy;
“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.”
