Kim Kardashian on Wednesday asked for compassion and empathy for her rapper husband Kanye West’s struggles with bi-polar disorder that have led to a series of rambling public remarks on subjects ranging from politics to his marriage.
Kardashian’s statement on her Instagram stories account was her first public comment on weeks of interviews, public appearances and Twitter comments by West that have raised concern about the Grammy-winning singer’s mental health
.“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she wrote, calling him a “brilliant but complicated person.”
Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions,” Kardashian wrote.
Her comments followed another late-night series of tweets from West, including one where he said he was trying to divorce Kardashian.
The tweet was deleted.
The couple married in 2014 and have four children.
