Trouble in the Kardashian West household? It seems like it!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married for a while now, and are parents to four children, but that doesn’t mean everything is perfect. Apparently, Kanye West’s mental health has Kim extremely concerned, and she has him under 24/7 surveillance.
It’s safe to say Kanye probably isn’t a fan since he is used to having his freedom and independence (at whatever cost). Could this be the final straw for the couple?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were the celebrity couple of the decade, but they might not be destined to last forever. The couple has had a few rough patches, and Kim may be losing faith in her husband. Is mental health has her concerned, and she is doing whatever she can to make sure he is safe.
He said he no longer struggles from this addiction, but that doesn’t stop it from affecting his life. “Some people drown themselves in drugs. And I drown myself in my addiction,” Kanye continued. “Money, clothes, cars, accolades, social media, paparazzi photos, going to Paris fashion week, all of that.”
He revealed that the death of his mother propelled him further into his addiction.
He turned his attentions toward more conservative ways of life and became increasingly concerned with immodesty and premarital intercourse.
“I was asking people to… this is gonna be radical what I’m about to say,” he told the DJ. “There were times where I was asking people to not have premarital s*x while they were working…I know that’s one where The Shade Room gonna be like, ‘what you meaaaan don’t have premarital s*x? you better turn that Meg Thee Stallion on right now.’”
Kanye said that he wanted his team to focus on the album rather than other issues in their lives. “I thought if we could all focus and fast, I mean it’s known when people pray together families that pray together stay together. When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased,” he said.
As for living with a mental illness, Kanye compared himself to a Babylonian king. “Nebuchadnezzar was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He was still King,” he said. “So not only was I diagnosed with mental illness, mental illness is something that was used to take my dome down by ten feet. To wash me out, to control me.”
And he doesn’t want to hide from it! “I do love the fact that I can show the world that I’m sitting here and have been diagnosed, put on medication to make me fat on purpose,” he continued.
“So, I’m trying to show that someone that’s diagnosed can still drive and be the founder of a multi-billion dollar organization. Can still be in service to Christ. Can still be a good husband and a good dad,” said Kanye. “My life does not end with this diagnosis and I will not be stigmatized and discriminated.”
But although Kanye may be comfortable with where he is in life, that doesn’t mean Kim is totally on board. Granted, being diagnosed with a mental illness does not mean someone should be subject to discrimination, nor does it mean they are crazy, but sometimes issues can occur when one is not properly taking care of their mental health.
Radar Online reported that Kim might be worried about just that—Kanye is neglecting his mental health. According to sources, Kim is “not happy.”
“They have a really strange marriage and she is not happy,” the source told Radar. “She is stressed dealing with his mood swings and manic episodes.”
The source acknowledged that Kanye is going through a difficult time, but that hasn’t made it any easier for Kim to handle.
“What you see on Instagram and [what you see on] the show is not real,” they said. Radar also mentioned that Kim had hired a team of therapists to be on call for her husband at all hours of the day.
“Kanye will be watched, even if he doesn’t know about it,” a source told the outlet. “He says he’s fine and doesn’t need help but Kim’s nervous so she’s making sure he’s under a watchful eye – or 5.”
“Kanye would be fuming if Kim told him what she’s done but she couldn’t care less,” they said. “She doesn’t want him losing his mind and she’ll do anything she can to ensure it doesn’t happen.”
Regardless, this hasn’t slowed Kanye down at all. He has plans to continue putting out albums and is currently working on Operas. Following the release of Jesus is King, Kanye plans to release a Christmas album called Jesus Is Born. “I will continue to be used by God. I don’t love suffering,” he said. “I’m just so blessed for everything that I’ve been through. To be standing here 15 years in, be making an album with the work, the paintings still are inspiring to me. Where I still want to listen. Music is my job that’s why I’m putting out the album. Serving God is my job, that’s why I’m here.”
And he hasn’t lost his Kanye personality. “I quite enjoy the sound of my own voice… And apparently by the streams, billions of people do also,” he told DJ Zane Lowe.
Kanye West Wants His Own Reality Show
Kanye West wants to add his church services to your Sunday night television lineup. His new-age Sunday Service is shaping up to become the next celebrity religious craze (anyone remember Kabbalah?), and Kanye is ready to cash in.
So just what is happening with Kanye’s services and what can we expect from this show?
It’s no secret that Kanye West is a religious man. It’s also no secret that Kanye West is a businessman. So naturally, the artist is looking to expand his religious Sunday Services to turn a profit.
Kanye’s “church” services have been happening for a while now, but when he held one during the second weekend of Coachella, that’s when things began to change. The hip-hop artist held his service atop a grassy knoll in the Coachella Valley, reported NPR. His choir wore pale purple outfits while DMX delivered a sermon.
Kayne was also selling “Church Merch” at the event, because why not. The overpriced clothing items went from anywhere between $50-$225.
Radar Online then reported in late May that the “Jesus Walks” singer was planning to put out a CD and documentary about his Sunday Services.
A major focus of the services is music (check out the video below to see for yourself), as well as the overall environment. According to a source that spoke with the outlet, “Kanye knows that the gospel music, as well as the footage that has been shot during these sermons, are of great interest.”
They also explained that Kanye “has already started working on a documentary and will be putting the best music together for a CD. Both of these items will obviously be for sale to the public!”
So perhaps Kanye is trying to expand his cash-flow by proposing his services be turned into a recurring series?
“He wants the show to air on Sunday’s right before Keeping Up With the Kardashians and he’s been telling people that this has been his goal ever since he came up with the idea for Sunday services,” they said.
Apparently, Kris is not fully sold on the concept. The source claimed that she is skeptical the show will be received well because of its religious nature. “Kris does not know if she even wants to go there and she has told him this,” said the insider.
So what is the deal with these Sunday Services in general? Elle published an outline of what goes down during the events, and what we can possibly expect to see if this becomes a reality show.
The services started in January of this year, and Kardashians and other attendees have been sharing information on them since. The event is held in varying locations, both indoors and out, and tends to focus heavily on monochrome visuals.
The services are currently invite-only, but perhaps this new show will add a megachurch vibe to the experience.
