Just days after Kanye's highly-publicized breakdown, Kim has reportedly been keeping busy and throwing herself back into her work... But not everyone is too impressed with her decision.
Nothing can stop Kim Kardashian.
via: GettyOver the weekend, her husband, Kanye West, hosted his first campaign rally where he suffered an alarming breakdown, both on the stage and during the aftermath on Twitter.
But, despite his worrisome behavior...
via: GettyKim has been keeping busy with her work and reality TV series - because the show must go on, right?
Now, 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?
Last year, Kanye opened up about his battles with mental illness.
via: Getty ImagesThe rapper 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, regardless of the haters, the rapper has been deadset on his "2020 vision"...
via: GettyAnd, last weekend, 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: Getty ImagesPeople 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, 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, and stated that she isn't 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???"
During his rants, Kim has remained silent...
via: GettyWhich became somewhat of a cause for concern amongst her fans.
But this week, after 3 days of silence across all of her social platforms, Kim finally addressed her husband's worrisome behavior.
via: GettyTaking to her Facebook and Instagram stories, 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.
Lots of people applauded Kim for her compassionate words...

However, not everyone was too convinced.
I don’t know but, This statement from Kim Kardashian feels a lil off. https://t.co/awOJSu7nwB— Shrimpfry Butterfly 🦋 (@Shrimpfry Butterfly 🦋)1595431660.0
Some felt that the statement was merely a PR sympathy stunt...And that all Kim wanted was for people to "ignore" what Kanye had to say about her family only.
And now, speculation around her response to the situation has only intensified...
via: GettyBecause it has emerged today that she filmed an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians just one day after Kanye's breakdown.
via: GettyThe reality star evidently couldn't back out of her commitment to the show, as she was seen with her sister, Khloe, and Khloe's ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, in Malibu on Wednesday being tailed by a KUWTK film crew, the Daily Mail reported.
The show won't be covering Kanye's breakdown, however.
via: GettyA source told TMZ that Kim doesn't want any of her husband's bipolar issues documented on the series. Her children won't be involved in any aspect of the show, either.
So who are we to judge?
via: GettyWe all need to remember that the family is currently battling with a serious mental health disorder and, behind closed doors, Kim and her children must be suffering tremendously. We wish Kanye a speedy recovery.
