Kim Kardashian is privately concerned about her husband Kanye West’s behavior over the last week, People reports, particularly because the rapper, who suffers from bipolar depression, is currently experiencing a manic episode and is “struggling,” according to a source.
On Fourth of July, West announced he was running for president, despite missing several FEC deadlines. In a rambling and controversial Forbes interview, West said he was running under the Birthday party, wants to model his administration off of Black Panther‘s Wakanda, and that he is an anti-vaxxer who believes vaccines stop people from getting into heaven among other claims. (There’s zero science behind that dangerous conspiracy theory.)
People‘s source explained, “Kanye has been doing well for a long time. In the past, he has suffered both manic and depressive episodes related to his bipolar disorder. Right now, he is struggling again.”
That source added that Kardashian is in Los Angeles with the couple’s four children while West is in Wyoming. Everyone is worried about West. “Kim is concerned, as well as her whole family,” the source said. “It’s super stressful for Kim, because Kanye’s behavior is very unpredictable. She is worried. The episodes usually last for a few weeks and then things go back to normal. Kim hopes it will be the same this time.”
Kardashian has only tweeted one thing about West after he announced his presidential ambitions. She retweeted his video including information on how to register to vote. Beyond that, she has said nothing at length about his interview or Birthday Party 2020 ticket dreams.
