WHAT IS BIPOLAR?

Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder which causes unusual and often sudden changes in mood and energy levels.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? 

Moods of those with bipolar disorder range from periods of extreme elation and energy (known as a manic episode) to periods of extreme somberness and lack of energy (known as a depressive episode).

HOW IS IT DIAGNOSED?

According to the International Bipolar Foundation, sufferers are diagnosed with rapid cycling if they have four or more manic, hypomanic, or depressive episodes in any 12-month period.

This severe form of the condition occurs in around 10 to 20 percent of all people with bipolar disorder.

WHAT CAUSES IT?

Currently it is unknown what is the cause of bipolar disorder, which affects around 5.7 million US adults aged 18 or older.   

Scientists say genetics could play a role or that those with a a family history of bipolar disorder are more likely to have it.

‘Our sources say his family and those close to him are worried, but they believe things will stabilize as they have in the past. 

‘The problem here, is that Kanye’s proclamations are causing problems.’

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Kanye West for comment.

Another insider said that West was doing well before this episode. 

‘Kanye has been doing well for a long time. In the past, he has suffered both manic and depressive episodes related to his bipolar disorder. Right now, he is struggling again,’ a source told People.

Kim is said to be ‘worried’ about the rapper, whose behaviour is putting an immense amount of stress on her.

‘Kim is concerned, as well as her whole family. It’s super stressful for Kim, because Kanye’s behaviour is very unpredictable. She is worried,’ the source went on. 

‘The episodes usually last for a few weeks and then things go back to normal. Kim hopes it will be the same this time.’

Kanye has been married to Kim since 2014, and the couple have four children, North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 14 months.  

The musician’s Forbes interview saw him drop his support for Trump, reveal his political party is called The Birthday Party and discuss anti-vaccination views.’

In 2018, Kanye revealed he was not taking medication for bipolar because it ‘stifles his creativity,’ a year after his diagnosis. 

The performer told David Letterman that he feels discriminated against because of his mental health issues.  

Kanye said: ‘I can just tell you what I’m feeling at the time. I feel a heightened connection with the universe when I’m ramping up. 

‘It’s a health issue, this is a sprained brain, like a sprained ankle. When someone has a sprained ankle, you’re not going to push on him more. With us, once our brain gets to a point of spraining, people do everything to make it worse,

‘They do everything possible. They got us to that point and they do everything to make it worse.’

Kanye can sometimes experience psychosis during periods of severe mania, in which he feels hyper-paranoia and believes everyone is out to get him.

‘Jada [previously] said she was mentoring him . . . what kind of mentoring was she giving him where he felt he gave his all to a relationship that has left him devastated and hurt. You did not help him, you helped destroy him,’ the actress continued.

Bombshell: August revealed last month he had been romantically involved with Jada when she was separated from her husband Will Smith

Ordinarily he wouldn’t discuss the affair, but August said he’s ‘lost money, friendships, relationships’ over the rumors. 

The singer told Angela on June 30 that he was in love with Jada and said: ‘I sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership… he gave me his blessing.’ 

August said the two became very close, and holidayed together with the family in Hawaii a year later and they even attended the 2017 BET Awards together.

He said: ‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her.

‘I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it, so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.

‘And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like, and some people never get that in this lifetime.

‘I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but, once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth.’

The actress befriended August during a difficult point in her marriage with Will four years ago. 

Initially, Jada was focused on August’s health – but the friendship ultimately developed into something more. 

‘As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August,’ Jada explained. 

Jada addressed August’s claim that Will gave her ‘permission’ to have an affair. 

‘The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself,’ she insisted.

‘But what August was probably trying to communicate because I could see how he could see it as permission because we were separated amicably, and I think he wanted to make it clear he’s not a home wrecker, because he’s not.’

When Will pushed Jada to clarify what she meant by ‘entanglement’ she responded, ‘It was a relationship, absolutely.’

Jada continued: ‘I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside yourself.’

Once Jada decided to repair her marriage with Will, however, August cut contact with her and the relationship ended.
