In recent weeks, Kanye West's behaviour, or more so his social media behaviour, has been increasingly erratic - posting Tweets in support of Trump, to claiming slavery was a 'choice.' Despite this, Kim Kardashian is standing by her husband, but is still concerned about his wellbeing, PEOPLE reports.
A source close to the family told PEOPLE that Kim, 37, is doing her best to protect her rapper husband, 40, after the string of controversial statements made via Twitter.
'Kanye is the most amazing person when he’s not acting like this. But when he gets manic, it’s really hard for everyone around him,' the insider spilled. 'Kim is absolutely worried about him right now, but she will defend him publicly to the end. She’s a very loyal wife, and her tweets and everything she’s been saying is definitely very calculated to help Kanye.'
Kardashian West was quick to defend her husband in a series of tweets of her own, arguing that reports labeling him 'as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive' are 'not fair.'
Appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star continued to defend Kanye.
I didn’t even know he got his Twitter again until I started seeing tweets coming in from other people retweeting them. And I was like, ‘Wait, is this real?’ And then at night he came in and said, ‘Did you see my tweets?’ I was like, ‘Yes, I did see your tweets,’ and I followed him back,' she explained.
