最近几天，Kanye West 在怀俄明州住所中独居，并不断的发布有关他的妻子和岳母 Kris Jenner 相关的贴文，试图阻止他们寻求心理健康专业人员的照顾。Kanye West 还称 Kris Jenner 为「Kris-Jong-Un」（意指北韩领导人金正恩），并指责 Kim Kardashian 与 Meek Mill 发生婚外情。虽然这位 43 岁的大人物表示 Kim Kardashian 和 Kris Jenner 一家试图将他强行送医，但 Kim Kardashian 在声明中则表示当一个精神健康有问题的人已经不在是小孩的时候，要强行将他送医非常困难。
Kim Kardashian 在这次的声明中详细说明的与他深爱却又患有精神疾病的人相处有多困难，但他敦促人们耐心和谅解。她说：「对于没有经历过类似事情的人，他们很容易多加批判，但他们不了解病患、病患家人和朋友是如何努力著。」她也还认为 Kanye West 的疾病也是他的天赋之一，许多人也都有注意到这个部分，Kanye West 许多伟大的梦也都实现了。

As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of a being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams or creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.
We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give grace to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and the public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding.
With Love and Gratitude,
Kim Kardashian West
