A source told TMZ that the 43-year-old rapper is in the midst of a manic episode caused by bipolar disorder – a condition that he has been open about in the past.
The report said that Kanye usually has a serious bout “once a year” and claimed that the disorder is behind the unconventional statements he has made over the past week.
His recent behavior has left his family “worried,” but they remain confident his condition will stabilize as it has in the past, according to the report.

Back in 2016, the rapper was hospitalized after a “psychiatric emergency” and was forced to cancel 21 concert dates.
He also opened up to David Letterman about his condition last year, explaining: “When you’re in this state, you’re hyper-paranoid about everything.
“Everyone – this is my experience, other people have different experiences – everyone now is an actor.
“Everything’s a conspiracy. You feel the government is putting chips in your head. You feel you’re being recorded. You feel all these things.”

Can Kanye West run for president in 2020?
DESPITE Kanye West’s tweet that he wanted to run for office, he missed the deadline to register as an independent in six states already.
The rapper also doesn’t appear to be registered with the Federal Election Committee.
He can technically still run for presdient, though he may experience roadblocks as it is too late for him to file as an independent in six states.
Kim revealed in April of last year that Kanye doesn’t take medication for the disorder, though she knows how to handle his “episodes.”
She told Vogue: “I think we’re in a pretty good place with it now.
“It is an emotional process, for sure. Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.
“For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.
“Traveling a lot does set it off, so he doesn’t travel as much as he used to.”

They said: “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.”
The source added: “Kim is concerned, as well as her whole family. It’s super stressful for Kim, because Kanye’s behavior is very unpredictable. She is worried.
“The episodes usually last for a few weeks and then things go back to normal. Kim hopes it will be the same this time.”
