Reality star Kim Kardashian West has finally broken the silence following some erratic statements by her husband, Kanye West, over the past couple of days.
Kim in a statement shared via her Instastory channel on Wednesday, July 22, said a lot of people are aware that her husband is bi-polar and as such those who know what that feels like should know how complicated the issue is.
The reality star said she has never addressed how Kanye’s issue has affected their family but had to do so because of the stigma against mental health.
Kim added that she has also been quiet about the issue “because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health".
In a different portion of the statement, the reality star said people have an understanding of mental illness should understand that the immediate family is usually powerless except the person in question is a minor.
