Kanye West went on another Twitter rant last night where he revealed he has been trying to divorce Kim Kardashian West after she met up with Meek Mill to talk “prison reform" almost two years ago. Now, Kim K is speaking out about Ye’s battle with bipolar disorder, all while reportedly meeting with divorce lawyers. Get it all inside…
Kanye West has a new album – DONDA – dropping Friday along with a new sneaker. So, he’s doing what he does best for promo. At least that’s what some people believe.
‘Ye has been in the headlines since the fourth of July when he announced he was running for president. He made his first campaign appearance in South Carolina last weekend and stirred up a sh*tstorm of controversy when he revealed he and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, were contemplating abortion when they first found out they were pregnant. Then, he hopped on Twitter to fire shots at his wife and the Kardashian-Jenner family, along with discrediting famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
Now, he’s tweeting (and deleting) about DIVORCE. And has accused his wife of attempting to or actually cheating with Meek Mill.
Last night, the Jesus Is King rapper hopped on Twitter with claims that he has been trying to divorce his reality star wife for years. The “Heartless” rapper said he has been trying to cut ties with Kim since November 2018 after she linked up with rapper Meek Mill at a hotel during a criminal justice reform summit. He also made a random reference to late pop icon Michael Jackson.
"I’ve been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Waldorf for ‘prison reform,’" he tweeted (and deleted).
"Meek is my man and was respectful That’s my dog Kim was out of line I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them???"
Meek seemingly responded saying it’s cap.
Shit is cappp cmon …..

The “Ultralight Beam” rapper also fired shots at his mother-in-law Kris Jenner (again), dubbing her Kris Jong-Un.
"Kriss and Kim put out a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do."
It’s unclear what statement he was referencing as Kim didn’t issue a statement on her Instagram until a couple of hours ago.
Ye’s latest Twitter rant comes a day after he ranted on the app about Kim supposedly trying to have him hospitalized involuntarily.
"Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday," Ye tweeted and deleted.
”Sources” hit up media outlets to let them know Kim is “completely devastated” by Ye’s tweets.
Now, Kim’s speaking out herself. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star hopped on IG Stories to address Kanye’s latest antics. She talked about his mental health battle and asked fans for “compassion and empathy.”
"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," Kim 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 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."
"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder,” the mom-of-four continued. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions."
"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," Kim continued "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."
It’s important to note, Kim previously Tweeted her support of her husband for President not even 3 weeks ago, and the family sources have stated that he has been in the midst of an episode for a pretty long while now. So it can be confusing to fans and people everywhere what exactly are legit statements and beliefs of his – esp. when she co-signs certain ones – and what is the product of a bipolar episode.
People would be more apt to take her statement at face value if she wasn’t simultaneously profiting off the fallout from his episode – seeing the incessant buzz around him but only promoting her products and moving up the filming of the new season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" which is happening as we type. But there was not one word about his state of mind uttered from her own mouth until he began attacking her and her mother directly. He has been attacking many people and groups, especially black women, for months if not years. And people don’t often discuss that.
Here’s some context for that video and enjoy this thread of ignorant comments Kanye said today at the rally in North Charleston: https://t.co/J78mu0qH9C pic.twitter.com/Z6aW9cLCUZ

– He yelled at me as if i was a toddler for interrupting him with CORRECT FACTS. A white girl did the SAME THING literally 10 mins earlier, and he hugged her and called her brave for “speaking out” and “speaking the truth” pic.twitter.com/vGJhafvuQb

At what point can others who don’t share blood or a bed with him speak up for themselves too without being labeled as just purely insensitive? He has a huge platform and endless resources, so his words carry weight – whether he is having an episode or not.
She and her family want it both ways. And you can’t have it both ways. Attempting to run an entire country – and she reposted and co-signed his campaign – while admittedly and proudly not taking meds or managing your disorder, can be problematic. And it would be for anyone attempting to have any position that has a direct effect on people’s everyday lives. No one said people with mental or emotional disorders can’t live full lives. There are people in top positions everywhere who do just that. But proudly not doing anything to manage said disorder while trying to take on an influential an position is what people have an issue with.
While her social media posts seem supportive, US Weekly says Kim is meeting with divorce lawyers following her husband’s latest rant. The site reports:
“Kim has been meeting with lawyers to explore and talk about divorce,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. While the couple has had their ups and downs in the past, another source says she has ‘wanted to make it work.’ The insider adds that Kardashian, 39, hasn’t gone forward with divorce in the past ‘because of their children.’”
Ye & Kim tied the knot in May 2014 and have four children together, North, 7, Saint, 4½, Chicago, 2½, and Psalm, 14 months.
Can’t lie, their marriage lasted longer than we expected. However, we knew when ish hit the fan, regardless of why, it was going to be a nightmare. And here we are.
All I did was ask what about the Gullah Geechee pic.twitter.com/17XM3SMUkC

Marquetta L. Goodwine, who was elected Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, issued an open letter to Kanye West after he kicked out a South Carolina artist for asking him about the Gullah-Geechee culture during his campaign appearance over the weekend.
“What about the Gullah-Geechee?” artist Ment Nelson asked.
“You probably one of them,” Ye responded. Then, he instructed to have him escorted out of the event.
“Hey, somebody go grab him and take him out,” Ye commanded.
Peep the clip above.
Here’s Queen Quet’s personal message to the Chi-town rapper in response to Ye removing the artist:
I must begin by letting you know that I am going to go back and play “Jesus Walks” and pray for you when I finish writing you this letter. I have been praying for you for years given the few things that I am aware of that you have gone through in your life. In spite of those things, it appears that you have not learned PROVERBS 4:7 KJV “Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
You came to the Gullah/Geechee Nation to the Holy City i.e. Charleston, SC on a holy day to act unholy during the 20th Anniversary celebration of our nation and the continuation of our cultural heritage. Instead of being well aware of that, your campaign team allowed you to disrespect one of our citizens who is also a celebrated artist that has painted you and the person in Washington DC that you seem to want to emulate. Mr. Ment Nelson asked you a clear question, “What about the Gullah/Geechee?” He spoke in English and not in Gullah to insure that you would be able to respond and provide your platform for our cultural community. If you were not aware of who we are, someone on your team should have been educated enough to IMMEDIATELY whisper information in your ear. Obviously, Jesus wasn’t walking with nor talking to you based on your outrageous reaction to something that you didn’t know about! How dare you have people remove this brother from the space? You were in our house!
He knows https://t.co/ataYotpCyr

I met with numerous US presidential candidates that were running because they chose to educate themselves about our unique culture community and to respect the protocols for our community. Your ignorance about us we could have excused if you were not attempting to obtain a space on a ballot. Many tourists arrive in the cities of the Gullah/Geechee Nation and are unaware of who we are, but they are usually wise enough to have someone educate them before they leave. Mr. Ment Nelson could have done this if you had done what you had the audacity to tell your audience to do at the beginning of this gathering which you held for media attention. It is obvious that you didn’t actually want anyone in what is called the South Carolina Lowcountry to take you seriously (if they were considering that in the first place) based on you throwing Brother Ment out of the building because he stood up like a proud Gullah/Geechee man should do and asked you a direct question. Your reaction was egregious and showed no respect for another Black man nor any manners at all. You have shown that you are out of touch with the calls for unity being fought for within the global Black community. This proves that you have no business attempting to enter an arena with world leaders.
Your behavior is completely unacceptable! As the elected leader of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, I hold you and your team accountable for this and expect you to show that you actually have Jesus walking with you by issuing a public apology to not only to Mr. Ment Nelson, but to the entire Gullah/Geechee family! Hunnuh ain kno who webe den hunnuh shoulda yeddi frum we! Disya ain gwine down drylongso juss likka dah!
