Kanye West’s shocking statements at a July 19th rally have led to somewhat of a breaking point for the marriage between him and Kim Kardashian West.
The reality star was said to be “shocked” by the rapper’s comments specifically when Kanye said the couple had once considered aborting Kardashian’s pregnancy with North, now 7, in 2012.
West was making his first appearance (in a bulletproof vest) since announcing his bid for the Presidency of the United States. He stated of Kardashian: “Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world when I did not want to.”
It was said that Kim was “furious” and “shocked” by the comments. West has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder, but this situation reportedly has Kim and her family very concerned.
His alarming outbursts included rants about abortion, slavery, and Donald Trump. Sobbing, he stated, “I almost killed my daughter”. He also spoke about his late mother Donda West.
In 2018 West showed signs of similar behavior. He lashed out at celebrity friends on social media and revealed that he “feels a heightened connection with the universe when I’m ramping up”. He has also said of his behavior, “it’s a health issue”.
Kanye and Kim have reunited recently in Wyoming. The pair was spotted driving together after the 43-year-old Kanye publically apologized to his wife.
Kim has been trying to get Kanye to agree to medical help but so far he has been unreceptive. Treatment during a serious bipolar episode is critical. Kardashian remains supportive but it is “difficult.”
