Kanye West faces divorce threat after claim wife Kim consider aborting first child
The claim by popular American rapper, Kanye West that his wife Kim Kardashians had considered aborting their daughter North may cause the news entrant to the US presidential race his marriage, Mailonline reports on Monday.
The rapper at a rally on Sunday said he and his 39-year-old wife Kim had considered aborting their daughter North, who is now seven, before he got a ‘message from God.’
However, his unscripted speech, which came two weeks after he announced his unlikely bid for president, has since left his wife and her family upset and alarmed.
Sources said that the family are ‘shocked beyond words’ by the Grammy-award winner’s personal revelation and feel he is in ‘desperate need of professional help’ for what they claim is a bipolar episode.
West, was quoted as saying that: “Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to.”
Those close to the rapper say they are also concerned that he is ‘tanking some of his business’ with his recent speeches and could ignite boycotts.
Kanye has been open about his struggle with bipolar disorder and, in 2016, he spent time in hospital after a ‘psychiatric emergency’ that forced him to cancel 21 concert dates.
During his rally speech on Sunday, the rapper appeared to acknowledge that his comments would be met with a negative reaction by his family. He explained that if his wife were to divorce him after making the comments, he would still be thankful that she had North.
