Kanye West has been hitting the headlines for announcing his decision to run for the US President 2024, but it was his recent meltdown on Twitter that added fuel to the fire. During the same, Kanye, in one of his tweets, claimed that he has been trying to divorce his wife and reality TV star Kim Kardashian from a long time. The latter, however, clarified saying he has a bipolar disorder. She penned a long note explaining that it affects them as a family and how they all are trying to deal with it. Amid the same, Kanye West was recently spotted having some me-time sitting with his buddy, after taking a stroll down the street.
The viral picture sees Kanye West, along with record executive Damon Dash, sitting and chatting on an outside bench. As per Hollywood Life, the duo had their masks on while shopping and took it off as they sat for a while. The two were sporting casual outfits. Kanye was wearing a blue hoodie and jeans, while Damon was in a white T-shirt and red shorts. The rapper could also be seen holding his phone, which had a neon green case. It has to be noted that Kanye looked calm as always, contrary to how one would expect after his Twitter rants.
As for Kim, her note about Kanye's bipolar disorder read, "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."
She added, "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 behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try."
Another excerpt from her post read, "He is a brilliant but complicated person, on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experiences the painful loss of his mother and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bipolar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions." Check out the full story here.
