Kanye West is making headlines again, following his announcement of running in the presidential election.
According to TMZ, Kanye West is having a severe mental break. Sources told the tabloid that Kanye annually suffers a bipolar episode, but it always stabilizes.
On TMZ Live in 2018, the entertainer said he stopped taking his bipolar medication because it hinders his creativity.
Kanye sources revealed that the presidential candidate is in the midst of an episode.
According to sources, Kanye’s family and close friends are worried that his current episode is impacting his decision-making. His close ones also believe that his disorder has influenced his recent statements from last weekend.
Over the weekend, the recording artist announced on Twitter that he is running for president.
On Tuesday, the mogul contradicted his previous political views in a four hour Forbes interview. Contrary to his past open support of Donald Trump, Kanye revealed that he is no longer a supporter.
The star told Forbes that he lost confidence in Trump, and criticized candidate Joe Biden’s run for president.
”America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special,” he said.
Kanye also shared that he had the novel coronavirus in February.
”Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it,” Kanye told the publication.
Despite contracting the virus, Kanye expressed that he is against a vaccine for COVID-19.
When referring to the vaccine, he said, “It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”
However, the interview that stirred confusion and side-eyes from the public addressed everything except the rapper’s mental health.
