Kim Kardashian West is coming to Kanye West’s defense.
The 37-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend her husband and his slew of tweets, including talks of a presidential run, that he’s been posting since he reactivated his profile.
“To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this… your commentary on Kanye being erratic and his tweets being disturbing is actually scary,” Kim began. “So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.”
“Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye’s mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision,” she continued. “So I’m glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening.”
Kim added that her husband is a “free thinker” and that the backlash that he’s received is “just not fair.”
“He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive,” she tweeted before bringing up Kanye’s Donald Trump comments.
“Now when he spoke out about Trump… Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this,” she explained. “But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics.”
She then clarified that Kanye will “never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that’s why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren’t labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time.”
Let there be no alternative facts about Kanye West, please.
The rapper and Yeezy apparel company founder returned to Twitter earlier this month after a year-long hiatus and went on a fresh tweeting spree on Wednesday to debunk what he says is “fake news” about himself.
“There’s been a lot of fake news so I just wanted to give you the facts. Yeezy will become the biggest apparel company in human history by working with the most genius level talents and creating product at an affordable price. I hired the head of supply chain from the Gap,” he wrote.
Kanye, who also has an Adidas branded line of Yeezy sneakers, tweeted earlier, “I am currently the single highest paid person in footwear. That means I make more money on shoes than Michael Jordan.”
Kanye’s information could not be independently verified. Jordan makes about $110 million a year from his branded Nikes and tops the list of the NBA’s highest paid sneaker endorsers.
“We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year. Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year,” Kanye said. “It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn on its way to becoming a decacorn.”
“I no longer have a manager,” he tweeted. “I can’t be managed.”
“I’m nobody’s ‘client,'” he continued. “Yes I got rid of my last lawyer why? Because he wouldn’t come to work full time. I also asked my last manager to come work full time for Yeezy of course the last lawyer and manager said no. So now I hired a CEO and a CFO and i have two full time lawyers as of now.”
In another tweet, Kanye called himself this generation’s Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Steve Jobs and Walt Disney.
On Tuesday evening. Kanye appeared to reiterate his intention to run for president, tweeting, “2024.”
On Wednesday, he tweeted, “Harvey Levin of TMZ your hearing from your future president,” he wrote. “Let’s be friends. Please never use the word erratic to describe a person who is economically and psychologically empowered.”
He later added, “When we become president we have to change the name of the plane from Air Force one to Yeezy force one.”
Kanye West is showing off his and Kim Kardashian West‘s Hidden Hills, California, mansion on Twitter, despite the couple having agreed to keep the $20 million mansion out of the public eye.
The rapper-producer shared three photos showing the interiors of the home that he and Kardashian West purchased in 2014, but only moved into in December after an extensive renovation.
“Do this look like the sunken place,” West captioned a photo of the stark white interiors, making reference to the 2017 horror movie Get Out.
The Oscar-winning film’s writer-director, Jordan Peele, explained the phrase on Twitter after the film’s release, writing, “We’re all in the sunken place,” and then, “The Sunken Place means we’re marginalized. No matter how hard we scream, the system silences us.”
Kardashian West replied to her husband’s posts on Twitter writing, “Ummm babe. We had a rule to not show our home on social media! Soooo can we now allow KUWTK filming in the home?” She added a crying laughing emoji. She later tweeted again to clarify that her earlier message was meant to be a joke, and that she was not scolding her husband.
“Oh RELAX I’m joking! Seriously you can’t have a personality on social media these days or your called bizarre or disturbing,” she wrote.
