I don’t have bipolar disorder, says Kanye
Kanye West doesn’t think he has bipolar disorder. The Bound 2 rapper — who is married to Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian West – believes that he was just battling with “sleep deprivation” rather than the mental-health disorder.
Speaking to US President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday afternoon, he said: “What I think is, we don’t need sentences, we need pardons. We need to talk to people. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I was connected with a neuropsychologist that works with the athletes in the NBA and NFL. He looked at my brain. I wasn’t actually bipolar, I had sleep deprivation, which can cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now when I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name.”
However, the 41-year-old rapper — who had North, five; Saint, two; and Chicago, eight months, with his wife Kim – previously revealed that he has learnt to embrace his bipolar disorder.
