Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian West, was spotted landing in Los Angeles on Tuesday, July 28, after a short trip to Cody, Wyoming.
During the visit, the couple was spotted out for a drive together, which, according to one insider, got “very emotional.” This reunion between Kim and Kanye came shortly after the rapper publicly apologized to his wife for his recent Twitter posts, including one in which he said he wanted a divorce.
“I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter,” Kanye tweeted. “I did not cover her like she has covered me.” The Yeezy designer added, “To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
Following a series of Kanye’s public declarations about their family, Kim took to her social media to speak out about her husband’s mental health.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar [sic] 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,” Kim began her series of messages. “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.”
Kim, who shares four kids with Kanye, went on to add, “Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the 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.”
In closing, Kim asked for privacy and compassion during this time. “We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, she shared. “However, we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.”
