The world was completely shocked when rapper Kanye West announced he was officially running for president on July 4, but friends and family close to him are now saying those inflammatory comments are attributed to his bipolar disorder, and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Sources close to Ye told TMZ they’re concerned about his decision-making, and some of the things he’s said in the last week. Allegedly, Kanye suffers a serious bout with his disorder once a year—his current episode being right now.
The “Follow God” rapper has spoken openly about being bipolar in the past. During his October 2018 appearance on “TMZ Live,” Kanye said he, “doesn’t take his medication because it stifles his creativity.”
While the sources are worried about his current status, they say things will smooth over soon as they have in the past.
