Kanye West Claims he was ‘Mentally Misdiagnosed’ Following Twitter Return – Kanye West, who in 2016 was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, now asserts that he was “mentally misdiagnosed.” Thursday night, following his return to Twitter after previously being banned for anti-Semitic remarks, the rapper resumed his nightly routine of calling out close friends and releasing personal text messages.
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 came only one day after it was reported that West paid off a former employee who wanted to speak out for years against his alleged anti-Semitism. According to NBC, the employee witnessed the rapper during meetings praising Adolf Hitler and Nazis, which he disputes. In addition, it was rumored that the Grammy-winning musician intended to title his 2018 album “Hitler.” The unsettling allegations surfaced after West promised to “go death con 3” on Jewish people and criticized the “Jewish media” for attempting to silence him.
