Kanye West is back on Twitter after a six-day break from social media and following an emotional and intense discussion with his wife Kim Kardashian only to rant about how the thought of aborting his eldest daughter, North West, brought tears to his eyes and how he was “concerned” about a world which did not think that he should be crying about this.
In the first tweet that he posted Friday, July 31, he alluded to his mental breakdown due to bipolar disorder in the South Carolina rally on July 19, when Kanye told a crowd full of people that he and his then-girlfriend Kim, considered abortion when the latter became pregnant with North. ”I cried at the thought of aborting my firstborn and everyone was so concerned about me… I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject,” the musician tweeted.

Kim and Kanye, who were not seen in each other’s presence since the controversial rally, were spotted together in Wyoming on July 27 as they stepped out to grab some fast food from Wendy’s. The pictures shared by Daily Mail show Kim crying her eyes out with Kanye seated next to her. Meanwhile, Kanye is also seen deeply involved in the conversation, with his face carrying intense expressions.
According to reports, during her emotional visit to Wyoming Kim urged the rapper to abandons all thoughts of running for the president of the United States this year and “focus on his mental health instead.” “Kim urged Kanye to not move forward with running for president, but he won’t listen,” a source told People Magazine. In a Forbes interview earlier this month, the musician said, “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy.”
Although the KKW Beauty mogul initially appeared to support her husband’s presidential ambitions by reposting her husband’s declaration to run for office on her own social media page, along with an American flag emoji on July 4, she soon changed her tune after Kanye shockingly revealed at the presidential rally. e also later claimed on Twitter that Kim tried to have him “locked up.” He also called his mother-in-law “white supremacist” and called her ‘Kris Jung-un.’
Before their emotional reunion, Kanye apologized to his wife in a tweet last week, amid reports that he went to hospital but left before he could be treated for anxiety. The rapper tweeted: ”I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me.to [sic] Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
Another source told the outlet at the time that Kim was drained and in pain: “She is very emotional about everything and also exhausted. She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times, and he just ignores her.” After returning from Wyoming sans her husband, the mother-of-four decided to make her children her priority and shield them from the negative gossip circulating in the media about their parents.
“She is shielding the kids. All of her family is. They’ve circled around the kids and are insulating them from all of this. And everyone else has decided to create an atmosphere of normalcy around them,” the insider said. Apparently, Kim ”feels trapped” but is refusing to divorce Kanye till he seeks help from a medical professional regarding his bipolar condition. “She loves Kanye and she thinks of him as the love of her life. But she doesn’t know what to do,” the insider said.
