Despite his comments, JAY-Z said he will always have love for Ye. “That’s my brother,” he told David Letterman in a 2018 interview. “We’re beyond friends. Really, like literally, my little brother is Kanye, and like your little brother, things happen sometimes.”
During his campaign rally in South Carolina on Sunday, Kanye made controversial comments about Harriet Tubman, saying the Underground Railroad conductor “never actually freed the slaves, she just had the slaves go work for other white people.” He also burst into tears while speaking out against abortion, saying he and Kim had considered terminating their first pregnancy with North West. “I almost killed my daughter,” he said.
His family is reportedly concerned for his wellbeing after the bizarre campaign stop. According to TMZ, those close to Kanye believe he is in “desperate need of professional help” and is in the middle of a serious bipolar episode, but he refuses to listen to them.
Kanye said this and I left immediately. I went for a laugh and I got one. But when it got disrespectful for me it was over. pic.twitter.com/nNqjUp03mu
