She's doing her best damage control right now!
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter today to slam the reports claiming her husband Kanye West is having another mental breakdown, and defended some of his more controversial tweets and opinions by chalking them up to personal expression.
'Ye has been blowing up social media with his love for Donald Trump, as well as his plans for his apparel company to take over the world, his Presidential aspirations in 2024, his views on free thinking, and much more, and it's raising eyebrows to say the least.
That's why his wife is stepping in!
"To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair. Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye’s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision. So I’m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening," she wrote.
"He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair. He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive. Now when he spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions,even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics," she continued.
"Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time. Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line," she concluded.
In case you've missed it, the Louis Vuitton Don is really making a splash with some of his comments.
"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought. f your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary. I love Hillary too," he wrote in one message.
Kimmy K might be standing by him publicly, but he revealed this morning that she freaked and contacted him when he started declaring his love for the POTUS.
"My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself," he insisted.
"And also I'm all the way out the sunken place. And I'm not scared anymore. I'm not scared of the media. I'm not scared of the past and I'm optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear," he added.
It sounds like the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is simply praying that things calm down soon.
“Kanye is like a child who needs constant attention — and Kim already has three of those. So after a while, or when he’s being really needy, it takes somewhat of a toll on her. Kim has a lot of priorities, and the kids come first. Kanye loves his family immensely, but I think he always expects to be number one. And that just can’t be a reality for Kim, who is already balancing being a mom to three kids as well as her work," an insider dished to People.
"Kanye has a very overwhelming personality that usually gets worse when is he under stress. Working on his album has been a very stressful situation. He is a perfectionist and very passionate about creating the perfect album. It’s taken over his life. Without much sleep, he is still able to create music. But when he is sleep-deprived, it’s like he deals with a cognitive chaos. Kanye is very needy, and it’s draining for Kim. She works, is a mom and has many responsibilities," the source added.
"She needs a healthy partner. She doesn’t want him to keep tweeting. They have had these issues in the past. Kanye just doesn’t listen to anyone. He thinks he’s just misunderstood. It takes a lot for him to admit that he needs to chill out. And how do you argue with someone who think they are a creative genius? Kim can only wait and hope Kanye will snap out of this soon," the insider explained.
Yeezus apparently doesn't need anyone telling him what to do, not even the K clan!
