KISS frontman Paul Stanley recently tweeted his support to Kim Kardashian West for speaking out after her husband Kanye West posted a series of tweets that have called his mental health into serious question. In the event that you haven’t seen them in all their glory, please keep reading.
On Monday night, Kanye tweeted allegations that Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner had tried to “lock him up,” and on Tuesday night, he claimed that he had been considering divorcing his wife.
Kardashian took to her Instagram page defending West, explaining that he has bipolar disorder.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder,” she wrote. “Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. 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,” she said. “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.”
Earlier today, Stanley shared Kardashian’s comments on Twitter and added the following message: “Let’s have compassion and commend this. So many struggle with mental illness and depression and we can all make a difference.”
Mental Illness ain’t no joke and should be taken very seriously. That being said, this will be the last and only time we publish an article about KANYE WEST.
Let’s have compassion and commend this. So many struggle with mental illness and depression and we can all make a difference. https://t.co/gcpOEKBpbq
