Kanye West’s current bipolar breakdown reportedly won’t be filmed in the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian gave the order herself that the rapper’s decline won’t be “exploited” in a storyline, sources claimed.

The series has just starting filming again after a lengthy break because of the pandemic, with the cast shooting in Malibu on Wednesday, TMZ claimed.
The order comes amid a week of turmoil during which:
- Kanye claimed he and wife Kim Kardashian discussed aborting their daughter North
- Kim finally broke her silence Wednesday saying she’s “powerless” and calling Kanye “brilliant but complicated”
- Kanye West last night claimed Kim met rapper Meek Mill at a hotel and called her ‘out of line’
- West also blasted Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner as “Kris Jong-Un”, and accused the pair of “white supremacy”
“Kim takes her husband’s mental health very seriously and doesn’t want it exploited for ratings or good TV drama,” a production source told the site.
Their four children, North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one, reportedly won’t be profiled either for the show because Kim doesn’t want them seeing the footage in the future.
Kim, her sisters and other family members are still filming but will be focusing on other storylines that don’t involve Kanye, TMZ claimed.
The Sun Online has contacted reps for Kim and E! for comment.
Kanye has been making a series of wild allegations about Kim in recent days amid what she called his “painful” battle with bipolar disorder.
Kanye tweeted on Wednesday morning “They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me. I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Waldorf for ‘prison reform’.”
He added: “I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night … Kris Jong-Un. Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won’t do a song wit me.”
He appears to be referring to the time Kim and Nicki Minaj’s ex Meek Mill teamed up to speak at the inaugural Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in November 2018.
He added: “Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog. Kim was out of line. I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ. But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them???”
The star also claimed that Kim considered aborting their oldest daughter North.
Bursting into tears at a political rally, Kanye wept: “I almost killed my daughter.”
Kim broke her silence hours after Kanye’s Twitter tirade on Wednesday to admit she feels “powerless” to help her husband.
The 39-year-old called Kanye a “brilliant but complicated person” and asked for compassion from fans in a lengthy post on Instagram.
Kanye’s behavior in recent weeks has raised concerns that he is in the midst of a manic episode caused by his bipolar disorder – a condition he has spoken about publicly in the past.
What is bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder is a severe mental health illness characterised by extreme mood swings of manic highs and depressive lows.
The disorder is a medical condition that can affect moods, and typically can make them swing from one extreme emotion to another.
It is categorised by episodes of extreme highs, mania, or extreme lows, depression.
If mood swings last a long time, but aren’t severe enough to be classed as bipolar disorder, some people are diagnosed with having cyclothymia (a mild form of bipolar disorder).
It is thought about 29million people worldwide suffer from bipolar disorder.
- Depression – feeling very low and lethargic
- Mania – feeling very high and overactive
- Extreme episodes can last for several weeks or even longer.
During a manic phase of bipolar disorder, a person may:
- Feel very happy
- Have lots of energy, ambitious plans and ideas
- Spend large amounts of money on things you cannot afford and would not normally want
- Not feel like eating or sleeping
- Talk quickly
- Become annoyed easily
- They may feel very creative and view the manic phase of bipolar as a positive experience.
- But they may also experience symptoms of psychosis, where they see or hear things that are not there or become convinced of things that are not true.
He has also accused Kris Jenner of “white supremacy” as he shared his private text messages to his mother-in-law.
One read: “This Ye, you ready to talk now or are still avoiding my calls?”
A second said: “This Ye, you wanna talk or go to war?”
He captioned the screenshot: “White supremacy at its highest no cap,” with Kris yet to reply to his messages.
The father-of-four later wrote: “Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do White supremacy. Says the future President.”
