Here's everything that's been said so far.
This is an extremely worrying time for those close to Kanye West.
Things have really come to a head the past week...
via: Getty ImagesAnd now it seems the rapper has finally taken action.
Kanye has been a part of the infamous Kardashian family since 2011...
What do you think of this picture for America's next First Family?
Where do we begin when it comes to Kanye's behavior?
via: GettyKanye has never been afraid of letting his opinion be known and, throughout the years, he has been in and out of the headlines for his strange and eye-opening antics.
But there was a heartbreaking explanation for these particular behaviors...
via: GettyLast year, Kanye opened up about his battles with mental illness. He revealed that, in 2014, he was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, 2 years before he suffered his highly-publicized nervous breakdown in 2016, which was likely triggered by the anniversary of his mother's death.
Kanye has come a long way in his battle...
via: GettyAnd he has been using his platform to help break down the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
But his most recent announcement stirred up the concern once more...Because, earlier this month, he suddenly revealed that he would be running for president.
Now, in the last couple of years, Kanye has been dabbling in and out of the world of American politics.Back in 2018, Kanye, who is an avid Trump supporter, sat down with the president in the Oval Office where he proclaimed his support and declared Trump a “hero" in a bizarre, rambling televised monologue that spawned myriad parodies.
But, on July 4th, he took things to the next level.

But this is America 2020, and anything can happen...
via: GettyGranted you have millions of dollars and a handful of powerful friends, that is.
But, regardless of the haters, the rapper has been deadset on his "2020 vision"...
via: GettyAnd, just over a week ago, he hosted his first-ever campaign rally.
However, his campaign proved to be an extremely chaotic and alarming experience.
via: TwitterKanye, who was clad in a bullet-proof vest with the numbers "2020" shaved into his head, threw his rally in Charleston, South Carolina, where he seemed to whip up various policy decisions right there on the spot.
And amongst many other problematic things, he completely humiliated his wife throughout it.
via: GettyPeople couldn't believe what they were hearing.
Because in case you haven't already heard...
via: TwitterKanye revealed some very private details about his family life.
He disclosed how he and Kim had discussed the possibility of abortion when she found out she was pregnant with North...
Through tears, Kanye ranted:
via: Twitter"Then she said, 'I'm pregnant.' I said, 'Yes!' Then I said, 'No.' I gotta tell you what was in my mind. She was crying. She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby's gone."
He acknowledged that Kim may file for divorce following his revelation...
via: TwitterBut, again, he didn't seem to care. "So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn't want to. She stood up, and she protected that child."
Kanye was crying so hard, it was difficult to understand what he was saying...
via: TwitterThe man is clearly in a lot of pain which arises so much concern about him running for president.
Kanye didn't stop there, however.
The tweets have since been deleted but were screenshotted by fans who reposted them.
Firstly, he started off by referring to an alleged incident with Anna Wintour...
via: TwitterIn which he said the fashion mogul was "kissing his ass." And literally minutes later, he told us that "Kim tried to lock me up with a doctor."
He then went onto post a photograph of his kids and a Playboy shoot.
via: TwitterKanye wrote this: "West children will never do Playboy... West."
But he continued...
via: TwitterFirstly, he refers to his own wife as "North's mom," which is shocking enough already and then talks about her sex tape, calling it a "sex rape."
He then threatened momager, Kris Jenner, in another tweet.
via: TwitterHe urged her "not to play with him" which is a direct translation of "don't test me." He also wrote that she's not allowed around his kids anymore because she tried to "lock him up."
But, even after all of that, Kanye carried on.
His allegations, once again, turned to his wife and mother-in-law.He branded both Kim and Kris as white supremacists, after claiming that the pair put out a statement without his approval first.
He then went to say that he's been trying to divorce Kim for 2 years in the since-deleted tweets."I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Waldorf for 'prison reform.' "I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night … Kris Jong-Un. Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won’t do a song wit me," he added.
He continued to slam his wife:"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???"
But, after 3 days of silence across all of her social platforms, Kim spoke out.
via: GettyTaking to her Facebook and Instagram stories last Wednesday, the reality star released a lengthy statement.
Her statement started like this:
via: Instagram"As most of you will know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. As anyone who has this or a loved one in their life does, knows how incredibly complicated it is to understand." She then discussed how, in the past, she has respected Kanye's privacy regarding his disorder, and has remained silent in an attempt to protect her children.
She then went on to discuss her husband's complex, yet "brilliant" personality.
via: Instagram"Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may seem. This is a part of his genius, and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams come true."
She then went on to urge people to be more aware of mental health issues in our society...
via: InstagramAnd thanked everyone so far for being so supportive and concerning for Kanye's health and wellbeing.
But the one thing about Kim's statement that really stood out for fans was when she described her family as being "powerless" against Kanye.
via: Getty"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," she said.
This must be such a difficult time for Kim and her family...
@indyajjackson @travisakers As the child of a bipolar (black) parent I can attest to what Kim K wrote. Money can't fix bipolar illness.— Nettrice (@Nettrice)1595439183.0
People who suffer from bipolar or have family members who are diagnosed with the illness have spoken out...

And when people accused Kim of "not keeping her husband on his medication"...This Twitter user pointed out that it's almost impossible to force a person with bipolar to take their medication.
Even though Kim still has her fair share of haters...

Rumor has it, if Kim tried to "stage an intervention"...
According to a source, he said this last week:
Kanye became increasingly paranoid.the source continued.
There's a lot we don't see on the family's show...
Regardless of his threats, Kim's main priority is to get her husband some help and protect her children.
But it looked like so far, her efforts came to no avail.
via: Getty ImagesKim has allegedly been struggling to reach Kanye since he flew out for his South Carolina rally over a week ago, TMZ reports.
The beauty mogul reportedly made attempts to talk to Kanye about his mental state.
via: Getty ImagesSources say she suggested twice that she fly to their ranch where he's been staying, but he's shot her down both times.
There's been very little communication between the pair.
via: Getty ImagesAnd it seemed as though Kanye was in no mood to see his wife.
But, over the weekend...Reports emerged that Kanye was taken to hospital.
A source explained that Kanye went to the hospital by himself.But after realizing that there were a lot of people inside, he got uncomfortable and left.
Medics then came to his house.Where they checked his heart rate and blood pressure - and determined he was not in danger.
It all happened so quickly.In fact, just an hour before, he issued a public apology to Kim.
via: Getty Images"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me," the tweet began.
He then went on to ask for his wife's forgiveness.

Get well soon, Kanye.
via: GettyWe hope the rapper will take the time off that he so desperately needs.
