All week, Kanye West has remained steadfast in his goal, disregarding anyone who tries to present an opposing point of view. Insiders, though, are certain that his current headline-grabbing behavior is the product of a mental breakdown.
Page Six is told that West’s close friends are deeply concerned about him. They believe it’s the most serious such episode that the rapper has suffered. Sources shared with outlet that the “Watch the Throne” star is barely sleeping, which is an issue that reportedly contributed to his hospitalization in 2016.
According to sources close to West, the star’s strange behavior started when he fired the publicist for his Paris fashion show last week, abandoned his preparations for the presentation, and quickly cobbled together a new show with the now-famous “White Lives Matter” theme. Insiders also claimed that, he planned his shocking interview with Tucker Carlson against the advice of his team.
Kanye has fired consultants and advisers who had contested his theories, which were widely viewed as anti-Semitic or racist. He’s also trying to hire a new team geared toward politics, and said he wants to focus on putting together a platform for a second presidential run in 2024.
Sources shared that Ye has even clashed with longstanding friends who have attempted to calm him down. None of that seemed to work.
Additionally, his friends are at a loss as to how to encourage the celebrity to seek professional help or moderate his bizarre and self-destructive behavior. The rapper was hospitalized because of mental health problems in 2016 and in 2019 he said that he suffers from bipolar disorder. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
