Kanye West looks distracted as he leaves Wyoming compound in a weighted vest amid bipolar episode

Kanye West looked distracted as he ventured out from his Cody, Wyoming compound on Thursday while his relationship with the Kardashian/Jenner family continued to show strain amidst the rapper’s current ‘bi-polar episode.’

The 43-year-old rapper kept his eyes glued to his phone during his brief outing, where he was seen wearing a $39 weighted vest from sports brand SPRI, a heavy jacket and ripped blue jeans.

The day before Kanye was captured at a local Wyoming Walmart, where it is possible he acquired his new apparel. 

The weighted vest is usually designed for workouts and comes with 10 2lb weighted steel-sand bags which can be added into pockets around the jacket.The sports clothing is used to increase total-body strength and improve endurance. 

West juggled two different phones during his trip. At one point he was seen snapping a photo before disappearing into a large truck.

Amid his presidential run and personal concerns, West has been busy overseeing the construction of his affordable-living ‘domes’ at his ranch.

Kanye has had a tumultuous week that kicked off during his presidential rally in South Carolina where he revealed that he and Kim had considered aborting their now seven-year-old daughter North.

What followed was a series of rambling and since-deleted tweets in which he revealed he had been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim and accused her of trying to get him ‘locked up’.  

He deleted all of the tweets about his wife and her family soon after posting.

That same day, Kanye’s wife Kim was pictured shooting the family reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians in Malibu, where she was with sister Khloe and Khloe’s ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson. 

Kim publicly addressed her husband’s bipolar battle with an Instagram statement on Wednesday, explaining ‘her family is powerless.’

Despite his current issues, Kim described her husband as ‘brilliant but complicated.’

‘Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,’ she wrote.  

‘I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. 

‘Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.’

Kim – who shares children North, Saint, Chicago and Pslam with the artist – did not mention Kanye’s divorce comments in her statement.   

It comes as insiders say the couple have been considering getting a divorce for weeks prior to his Twitter meltdown. 

A source told People magazine that Kim and Kanye had even been discussing the ‘most amicable and loving co-parenting situation’ for their four children. 

‘There has been enough communication, both in the past few days and in the weeks prior, to establish that both sides feel the marriage is over,’ the source said. 

Kanye tweeted late Tuesday that he had been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel to talk about prison reform – a cause Kim has championed of late. 

During his Twitter rant, Kanye also took aim at his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, calling her ‘Kris Jong-un’ and accused both Kris and Kim of ‘white supremacy’. 

He also repeated an earlier claim that his wife and mother-in-law had ‘tried to fly in with two doctors’ to have him hospitalized amid concerns about his well-being after his bizarre entry into the 2020 presidential race. 

West had alleged just 24 hours earlier that ‘Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out’ after his troubling appearance at the campaign rally, his first since announcing on July 4 that he was entering the 2020 race. 

‘Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that’s not what a wife should do,’ Kanye said after reports that the Kardashians were infuriated by his latest antics.   

Kanye also shared his texts with mother-in-law Kris Jenner on Twitter in which he threatened to ‘go to war’ if she did not return his calls. 

The first message read: ‘This Ye, you ready to talk now or are still avoiding my call?’, while the second, posted a day later, said: ‘This Ye, you wanna talk or go to war?’.

He captioned the screenshot: ‘White supremacy at its highest no cap.’  

On Thursday, a source told The Sun that Kanye allegedly told Kim that ‘if the Kardashian family try and stage an intervention he’ll live stream it on Twitter and ‘show the world the truth’.’ 

The source continued: ‘He’s acting extremely paranoid and seems convinced Kim and Kris Jenner are ‘out to get him. He’s warned Kim that he knows the family ‘secrets’ and will put them all out there.’  

‘There’s a lot that isn’t on the reality show – feuds, secret celebrity hook ups, surgery, financial deals and rows within the family 

‘But Kim’s only concern at this stage is getting Kanye help and protecting their children. She’s very worried.’  

Kanye had revealed in his South Carolina rally on Sunday that he and Kim considered aborting their daughter North, and separately announced that his children would ‘never do Playboy’. 

He dropped a huge relationship bomb, telling Twitter he’s been ‘trying to divorce’ Kim for some time now. 

‘I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform”, Kanye said, adding: ‘This my lady tweet of the night… Kris Jong-Un’. 

A picture of Kardashian and Meek, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, surfaced on Twitter this week, which showed the pair meeting with philanthropist Clara Wu at the Waldorf Astoria hotel restaurant in 2018. 

Seemingly going off on a tangent, Kanye added in the same tweet that ‘Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won’t do a song wit me’.

In his next tweet he wrote: ‘Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog. Kim was out of line. 

‘I’m worth $5 billion and more than that through Christ. But you’ll ain’t listen to MJ but you’ll believe them???’.  

Kanye has also shared his texts with Kris Jenner in which he threatened to ‘go to war’ if she did not return his calls. 

The first message read: ‘This Ye, you ready to talk now or are still avoiding my call?’, while the second, posted a day later, said: ‘This Ye, you wanna talk or go to war?’.

He captioned the screenshot: ‘White supremacy at its highest no cap.’  

Page Six reports that friends fear the marriage may not survive West’s recent frightening behavior, as he welcomes other celebrities including comedian Dave Chappelle to his Wyoming ranch but continues to avoid his wife.

A source told Page Six that while the Kardashian family had decided to stand by Kanye, they believe the situation is ‘really bad’. 

‘I don’t know if they can survive it,’ the source claimed of Kanye and Kim’s marriage.    

Also on Tuesday, Kanye questioned whether he should postpone his controversial run on the Oval Office until 2024 in a tweet late Tuesday night in which he also shared a confusing look at his ‘2020 Vision’. 

‘#2020vision or maybe ’24,’ he wrote alongside a picture of a piece of paper in his trademark orange, listing what appears to be the tracklist for his upcoming album.

‘I guess all black people supposed to vote on Biden? Y’all want me to run on nah???’ the rapper then asked. 

He shared the list again later Tuesday as he repeated that he had a new album being released this Friday. 

‘DONDA: WITH CHILD new album and movie this Friday,’ he wrote.  

West had been critical of Biden when he gave an interview to Forbes last month to speak about his presidential platform.  

‘A lot of times just like political parties they feel all Blacks have to be Democrat. This man, Joe Biden, said if you don’t vote for me, then you are not Black,’ he said. 

‘Well, act like we didn’t hear that? We act like we didn’t hear that man say that? That man said that. It’s a rap. We gonna walk, all the people. Jay-Z said it best.’

‘For the other candidates, I just gracefully suggest y’all bow out—Trump and Biden, gracefully bow out,’ West continued. ‘It’s God’s country, we are doing everything in service to God, nobody but God no more. I am in service of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and I put everything I get on the line to serve God.’

Biden was criticized in May for telling popular radio show host Charlamagne tha God he ‘ain’t black’ if he can’t figure out who to pick between Donald Trump and him. 

‘I should not have been so cavalier. I’ve never, never, ever taken the African-American community for granted,’ Biden said in an apology, according to the Associated Press. ‘I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.’

West’s 2020 run had been controversial from the off but hit a new peak this week following his first campaign rally and a now deleted Twitter rant calling out his wife.  

However with his recent revelation that he is planning top drop an album this week,it has led some to claim that the turmoil is all part of a PR stunt. 

‘I see it as perfect timing with the drop of a new album. None of this is coincidental; he merely has a need to be talked about in the worst way,’ Chief Executive of RLM Public Relations, Richard Laermer, told Fox News. 

‘He isn’t ‘running,’ per se, because that would be a ton of work. And this guy has proven that, while he has a lot of energy, isn’t actually interested in the head-down work it would take to be the leader of a political campaign.’
