After almost seven years of marriage, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting a divorce.
It comes after the rapper’s increasingly bizarre public behaviour over the past year, which included a campaign for president and social media posts in which he said his wife had tried to have him hospitalised.
In a statement on Instagram in July last year, Kim addressed her husband’s mental health, describing him as “a brilliant but complicated person, who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, … experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.”
She said the family was “powerless” to force Kanye into treatment because he was not a minor. She also asked for compassion and empathy from the media and public and thanked those who expressed concern for his well-being.
