While the controversial rapper, who detailed his struggle with bipolar disorder on an episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, insists he's stable, given his history, Kim still fears for her hubby's mental health.
“He says he’s fine and doesn’t need help but Kim’s nervous so she’s making sure he’s under a watchful eye – or 5,” the source continued. “They’ll report to her and if there’s any warning signs she’ll essentially send them in.”
In spite of their closeness, Kim is refusing to alert the Yeezy founder of her devious plan in case he kicks up a stink.
“Kanye would be fuming if Kim told him what she’s done but she couldn’t care less,” the insider dished. “She doesn’t want him losing his mind and she’ll do anything she can to ensure it doesn’t happen.”
Months after releasing his album Ye— which included the words "I Hate Being Bipolar. It's Awesome" on the cover— Kanye opened up about his diagnosis on David Letterman's hit Netflix series.
“When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything,” the Gold Digger rapper said during the interview.
“Everyone — this is my experience, other people have different experiences — everyone now is an actor. Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things. You have this moment [where] you feel everyone wants to kill you. You pretty much don’t trust anyone."
He also described what it was like to be handcuffed and separated from his family during treatment.
“They have this moment where they put you — they handcuff you, they drug you, they put you on the bed, and they separate you from everyone you know,” he said. “That’s something that I am so happy that I experienced myself so I can start by changing that moment. When you are in that state, you have to have someone you trust. It is cruel and primitive to do that."
Kim also shared her perspective in April, admitting in an interview with Vogue that they've finally reached a "good place" with his mental health.
“It is an emotional process, for sure,” the 38-year-old reality mogul told the outlet. “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.”
