Kanye West has been out of the spotlight for a few months now, but he’s back in the news with a bizarre text rant to X owner Elon Musk. In the messages, which were posted by Ian Connor, a close friend of West’s, the rapper spoke about his health issues, claiming he’s not bipolar, but instead has “signs of autism,” caused from his car crash in 2002.
“When are we going to speak. You owe me nothing. You never have to speak to me again. But if we do speak. The nature of the relationship has to change. I’m not bi polar. I have signs of autism from my car accident,” West wrote.
He continues, claiming his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, is keeping him away from their children, “You can’t watch Kim keep my kids from me. And not say anything publicly then call yourself my friend so I can bring my audience to your struggling platform.”
Elon Musk suspended Kanye West’s Twitter account in December for antisemitic remarks the rapper made, including threatening to go, “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” Although the account was reinstated in July, the rapper now known as Ye has remained inactive on the platform since then.
It’s unclear if the messages are recent, but they come at a time when Kanye West is gearing up for the release of his new album, a collaborative effort with Ty Dolla $ign. He’s been doing a lot to ensure that his name is in the news, including leaking a video for his long-delayed “New Body” collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj and claiming that Cardi B is an industry plant.
“[Corey’s] Illuminati, that’s why Cardi B was over there. Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati. She don’t write her raps,” Ye alleged. “She’s just there to sound as ignorant as possible. She’s literally replaced Nicki Minaj purposely. That they put her there, and now she doesn’t know what to do. She has no idea what the f—k is going on. She thinks it’s a blessing from the universe, it ain’t no f——-g blessing.”
