I don’t have bipo­lar disor­der, says Kanye

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
