Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has talked about the mental health of her husband, Kanye West, after his controversial remarks in recent days.
“As many of you know, I had a bipolar disorder,” she wrote on her Instagram account.
“He is a brilliant but complex person … and his words sometimes do not match his intentions,” she added.
Kardashian married a famous rapper in 2014.
Kanye West recently announced its intention to run in the upcoming presidential elections. But it sparked controversy with a series of tweets on Twitter.
Kardashian said on Instagram on Wednesday that she had not previously spoken publicly about the impact of her husband’s mental health on the family because she wanted to preserve her children and her husband’s privacy.
“Today I feel I should mention it because of misconceptions related to mental health,” she added.
She added that her husband is criticized because he is a well-known figure, and his actions may sometimes attract “sharp opinions and feelings.” She asked for more understanding and sympathy for his condition.
She stated that her husband suffered from a lot of pressure as an artist and a black skin, “and suffered from the loss of his mother, and he had to deal with the feeling of isolation that increases with bipolar disorder.”
She added that this situation does not diminish or nullify his dreams and creative ideas, regardless of their size or the inability to achieve them by some.
She affirmed, “This is part of his genius, and all of us have seen many big dreams come true.”
She called on society to take care of individuals with mental health problems.
No specific causes of bipolar disorder are known, but experts believe it may appear as a result of severe emotional suffering in childhood or as a result of genetic and chemical causes.
Sometimes the person may experience a state of euphoria and feel that he has a lot of energy and many ambitious ideas and plans. But he may become aggressive and may experience symptoms of psychosis.
