Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s marriage might not survive his latest outburts, according to sources close to the couple.
The sources say that West’s concerning behavior and bizarre rants in recent weeks are caused by a “terrible” bipolar episode.
The insiders say that while the Kardashian-Jenner family supports his campaign, the situation has gotten “really bad.”
“I don’t know if they can survive it,” the source said.
While his bizarre rants may have been embarrassing for the family, the source said that they hold no anger and that “everyone has such compassion for him right now.”
The source continued, “The family is trying to work out what to do and hoping that this nightmare will be over soon and they can get Kanye into treatment.”
According to the source, West is “super lovely and connected” when he is in good health. But an episode makes for a “terrible” situation.
They added, “The sad thing is that when he recovers, he realizes what he’s done and he apologizes.”
The 43-year-old rapper and entrepreneur first revealed his bipolar disorder in 2019. He shared that he was hospitalized for a “psychiatric emergency” back in 2016 after he delivered a bizarre rant onstage, in which he slammed his friends Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
The rapper had cried hysterically during his first presidential campaign rally on Sunday when he revealed that he had initially considered aborting their first child. He also claimed that Underground Railroad hero Harriet Tubman “never actually freed the slaves, she just had the slaves go work for other white people.”
Kardashian was reportedly “mortified” by West’s abortion claims, sources told Page Six.
On Monday night, West posted a series of rants that claimed his wife and her mother, Kris Jenner, were “trying to lock him up.” He compared the situation to Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment and the 2017 horror movie “Get Out.”
West has been staying at a $14 million ranch in Wyoming, a property he bought with Kardashian.
On Tuesday, he shared a video with the famous comic Dave Chapelle. He tweeted, “THANK YOU DAVE FOR HOPPING ON A JET TO COME SEE ME DOING WELL. DAVE YOU ARE A GODSEND AND A TRUE FRIEND. ALL LOVE.”
