Kanye West is currently holed up at his $14 million ranch in Cody, Wyoming where he’s finalizing his (already delayed) album DONDA. Although his wife Kim Kardashian flew to the remote location in an attempt to get him help for his bipolar disorder, she returned to Los Angeles sans husband.
But Ye insists he’s fine. On Friday morning (July 31), the seemingly troubled artist addressed his tear-filled rant during his inaugural campaign rally in South Carolina earlier this month, where he confessed he tried to convince Kardashian to abort their first child North West.
According to a pair of tweets, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. In fact, he’s baffled by anyone who doesn’t cry when talking about abortion.
“I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me,” he wrote. “I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject. There is a tactic of 4 D’s Distract Discredit Dismiss To Destroy. I am quite alright. Take a second and think about what is being projected here.”

Kanye’s erratic behavior online following the rally also raised some red flags. In a string of late-night tweets, he accused his mother-in-law Kris Jenner of being a white supremacist, insinuated Kardashian had an affair with Meek Mill, suggested he wants a divorce and accused the Kardashian-Jenner family of trying to have him committed.
He ultimately apologized to Kardashian and expressed regret for taking their personal lives public.
“I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter,” Ye tweeted. “I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”

Still, rumors of an impending divorce continue to loom. According to Page Six, the couple has already been living separate lives. A source reportedly said, “Kanye’s in Wyoming, that’s his main base. But they’re not like other couples, obviously, they have multiple houses and private planes, so it’s not like they’re not able to see each other. Kim is completely focused on her family and protecting her kids right now, they’re so young.
“She’s doing well, she doesn’t want this to impact on the kids, so it’s business as normal with them. Her sisters have been helping out and the kids have been with their cousins. They don’t want the kids to feel that anything is wrong, but of course, they want their father.”
People Magazine reported during their emotional discussion at the ranch, Kardashian begged him to abandon his presidential campaign and “focus on his mental health,” but he wouldn’t listen.
Instead, Kanye’s team filed paperwork to try to get him on the ballot as an independent candidate in Missouri and New Jersey ahead of the November election. Ye announced his intention to run in the 2020 presidential election on the Fourth of July.
