It seems that the divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be remembered by everyone as the calmest star divorce in recent history. The couple does not intend to noisily sort things out, share property, and argue over whom the kids will live with. According to insiders, Kim does not even plan to remind the court that Kanye was diagnosed with bipolar disorder — this may prevent him from getting joint custody of the children with his ex-wife.
“Kim fully trusts Kanye in matters of child safety,” insiders familiar with the situation emphasize. In addition, Kanye is very rarely left alone with the kids — there is always someone from the family or staff nearby who is ready to take care of them. Insiders add that the musician is very responsible for the upbringing of his offspring and during the manic phase distances himself from them.
In the past, Kanye has caused problems for family members in times of acute bipolar disorder. However, the risks were mostly reputational: he once wrote a series of tweets insulting his wife and her mother, Kris Jenner. Kim Kardashian then had to comment on her husband’s antics: “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has experienced this personally or through the example of their loved ones knows how incredibly difficult and painful it can be to accept this situation. Kanye is outstanding, but a very complex person, who is under the constant pressure of the creative process. He is also a black man who is painfully affected by the loss of his mother, which causes him to experience a sense of loneliness that is only intensified by bipolar disorder. Everyone who is close to Kanye knows that he has a good heart. And that his words often differ from his feelings.”
