Kanye West continued to raise concerns for his mental health as he claimed he has been “trying to get divorced” from his wife Kim Kardashian.
The rapper followed Monday’s bizarre Twitter rant and an eyebrow-raising presidential campaign rally on Sunday with the sensational tweet about his wife on Tuesday which he quickly deleted. In a series of other tweets that were also deleted, West referred to his mother-in-law Kris Jenner as “Kris Jong-Un” and claimed she and his wife had tried to have him hospitalized.
“I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” Kanye tweeted early Wednesday, apparently referring to rapper Meek Mill who met with Kardashian in 2018 at a criminal justice reform meeting.
“Meek is my man and was respectful,” he wrote. “That’s my dog Kim was out of line.”
I will never be able to comprehend that this tweet is real, I really hope Kanye gets the help he needs soon pic.twitter.com/rg5jweaJD9

“They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me,” West wrote.
“Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do White supremacy,” he said in another deleted tweet.

One of the tweets he left on his account read: “Says the future president.”

On Monday, West tweeted, “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughter’s life yesterday.”
The rapper was referring to his much-talked about campaign event in North Charleston, S.C., on Sunday during which he sparked an outcry when he said abolitionist Harriet Tubman “never actually freed the slaves,” and broke down in tears when speaking about his mother.
Kardashian was reportedly angry with her husband following remarks he made during the rally about how the couple had wrestled with the idea of terminating a pregnancy, which eventually resulted in gave them their first daughter, North.
“Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to,” West said. “She stood up and she protected that child. You know who else protected a child? Forty-three years ago, who do you think protected a child?”

Questions continued about whether West, who had been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, is serious about his presidential run or if it is all a publicity stunt, as he has mentioned that he has a new album being released this Friday.

“I see it as perfect timing with the drop of a new album. None of this is coincidental, he merely has a need to be talked about in the worst way,” Richard Laermer, Chief Executive of RLM Public Relations, told Fox News.
“He isn’t ‘running,’ per se, because that would be a ton of work. And this guy has proven that, while he has a lot of energy, isn’t actually interested in the head-down work it would take to be the leader of a political campaign,” he added.
But between the rally on Sunday and a string of since-deleted tweets on Monday before the rants that followed the next night, reports indicate that Kardashian and other members of the family are very concerned about the rapper, who is reportedly in his multi-million-dollar Wyoming ranch.

“Kanye has a compound at the ranch in Wyoming. He’s had a lot of building work going on there and a lot of it is geared towards security,” a source told The Sun.
“There’s an underground bunker, a panic room originally built for the family to go to in an emergency, stocked up with food,” the source added. “Kanye’s surrounded himself with a small group of people he trusts, and he doesn’t trust Kim or her family.”
Twitter users reacted to West’s latest missives with a mixture of concern and humor.
Devastated about Kanye deleting his tweets given that I had the top response.

I hope Kanye will focus on his mental health and take a break after the album drop.

just woken up to Kanye’s meltdown… wtf is happening????

Kanye isn’t mentally unstable. He’s a human that has a behavioral difference that people who don’t understand him call “crazy”. Does everything he say make sense TO US? No, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth listening to. Idk what’s going on but I don’t think it’s all mental
