Kanye West took to Twitter yet again on Tuesday (July 21) night to go after the Kardashians. This time around, he took aim at matriarch Kris Jenner, calling her “Kris Jong-Un” and claiming that Kris and his wife Kim tried to get him involuntarily detained for a 72-hour psychiatric hospitalization with a 5150.
Kanye also tweeted a bombshell, claiming that he’s been wanting to divorce Kim since she met with Meek Mill to talk about prison reform. He added that Meek was a gentleman during the meeting, but Kanye said that Kim was “out of line” and offered no further context on the situation. He then took aim at Kris Jenner again, telling her he was at his Cody, Wyoming ranch if she needed to find him, and then he added, “Unless you’re planning another one of your children’s’ Playboy shoots.” You can check out more of his tweets in the article below.
The 43-year-old musician also branding his mother-in-law Kris Jenner a “white supremacist”.
Kanye’s Twitter Rant:
Claimed music icon Michael Jackson was murdered
Accused wife Kim and mother-in-law Kris Jenner of ‘white supremacy’
Shared plans to divorce Kim after she ‘met Meek Mill at a hotel’
Called himself the ‘future president’
Threatened to ‘go to war’ with Kris

Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to release a statement addressing Kanye’s recent behavior, including tweeting about wanting to divorce her and taking aim at her mother, Kris Jenner.
She wrote, “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.”
Kim went on to speak about the powerlessness of getting help for an adult loved one with bipolar disorder, and she added that people can often be judgemental of the situation. Given Kanye’s celebrity, Kim stated that she understands how Kanye’s recent statements have caused a stir, but she clarified that “those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.”

As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar 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.
I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a Black man, who experimented 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 some times do not align with his intentions.
Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.
We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well-being and for your understanding.
