Following a twitter storm that left many fans concerned about Kanye’s mental health, his wife Kim Kardashian is speaking out.

She added, “I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of my children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health.But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”
“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions,” said Kardashian.
“He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the personal loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is highlighted by his bipolar disorder.”
She ended her statement by asking the media and public for compassion and empathy and thanking fans for expressing their concern and understanding.
