Kim Kardashian West addresses Kanye West’s mental health and asks for compassion
The presidential election has more or less become a PSA about the problem of mental illness between Trump (narcissistic sociopathy), Biden (dementia, Alzheimer’s), and West (psychosis, bipolar disorder).

In an Instagram Stories post on Wednesday, Kardashian West acknowledged that West has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and said it’s “incredibly complicated and painful” for many to understand.
“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,’ she wrote.
“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 off the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
She went on to call her husband a “brilliant but complicated” person and pointed out the struggles he has dealt with, including the loss of his mother, Donda West
