Kim Kardashian is denying Kanye West’s claim that he has been trying to divorce her but can’t because of her magical hold on him. In an article on the matter, it was suggested that Kim must be using the ingredients some Jamaican women use to hold on to their men such as stew peas, rice and peas or peas soup.
The reality star is speaking out and denying that she has done anything sinister to keep the rapper married to her but instead blame their marital troubles all on Kanye’s mental health issues.
Below is Kim Kardashian’s side of the story:

As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar 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. 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.
Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior 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 engaged in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions.” He is a brilliant but complicated person who “on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, experienced the painful loss of his mother and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. This at part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.
We as a society talk about giving grace to this issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most. I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding.
Kim did not mention if she would be willing to give Kanye a divorce now that it is public that he has been wanting one for a long time now.
