Kanye West has refused to see or “accept calls” from his wife, Kim Kardashian West while he stays in his ranch in Wyoming.
The “Fade” rapper has been the center of concern for the past few days following a numerous amount of posts on Social media. This all began after his emotional outburst at the rally for his presidential campaign in South Carolina, where he cried uncontrollably and made various statements; like how the west family planned to abort their firstborn North and he also found fault with the abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman.
TMZ reported that since the rally, there has been little to no communication between the couple. Kim has made several efforts to contact Kanye, but he has not been accessible. She flew to the ranch in Wyoming twice to try and talk to him, both he refused to see her. The report says that Kim was concerned for him prior to his rally in SC, it started when he was in the Dominican Republic. She went to him because she felt like something was wrong, but she had to return back because of their children.
The rapper flew to SC for the rally and that was where it took a turn for the worst.
Kim recognizes that her husband is in the middle of a bipolar episode, she also addressed the issue of concern earlier this week by saying how “powerless she feels.” During a lengthy Instagram story, she explained how she is trying to get Kanye West the help that he needs and people should show “compassion and empathy.”
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. 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. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can 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.
