Kim decided to speak up about Kanye’s mental health on her Instagram story, saying “As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar 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.”
Kim continues, “those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.” Kim went on about the stress in Kanye’s life including “the painful loss of his mother.”
Kanye later tweeted he “did not cover her like she has covered me. I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter,” Kanye wrote. “To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
