Kanye West, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2016, is now claiming he was “mentally misdiagnosed.”
The rapper began his customary Thursday night practice of calling out individuals close to him while exposing private text messages after being banned from Twitter earlier due to anti-Semitic remarks.
This time against his former personal trainer, Harley Pasternak, who is Jewish.
“What should be obvious by now is that I was raised to stand for my truth regardless of the consequences,” the rapper tweeted alongside a screenshot of his alleged conversation with the celebrity trainer.
“So I will say this again I was mentally misdiagnosed and nearly drugged out of my mind to make me a manageable well behaved celebrity.”
In the text message, Pasternak asked West to have a “loving, open conversation” with him based on “fact.” He also asked his former friend to refrain from “cuss words” or “crazy stuff.”
However, Pasternak’s next message changed its tune as he seemingly threatened to have West, 45, put back into a facility.
“Second option, I have you institutionalized again where they medicate the crap out of you, and you go back to Zombieland forever. Play date with the kids just won’t be the same.”
Pasternak was allegedly the person who called the police on West when the rapper was hospitalized for his “erratic” behavior back in 2016.
The rapper-turned-fashion designer has been under fire over the past month for his disturbing anti-Semitic remarks as friends claim he is in the midst of a “psychiatric episode.”
However, many people — including numerous celebrities — stand by the idea that West’s mental state does not exempt him from the consequences of his comments.
His accusations against Pasternak also come amid news that West allegedly paid off a former worker who had long sought to come out and denounce his alleged anti-Semitism.
NBC claims that the worker saw the rapper laud Adolf Hitler and Nazis in meetings; the artist disputes this.
The Grammy-winning musician reportedly also planned to call his 2018 album “Hitler.”
The disturbing allegations came to light after West threatened to “go death con 3” on Jewish people and called out the “Jewish media” for silencing him.
