Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 55, has spoken out to urge Kim Kardashian West, 39, to “do something” and stage an “intervention” after her husband Kanye West’s emotional moment at his campaign rally yesterday. The 43-year-old rapper, who has previously opened up about his struggle with bipolar disorder, sparked concern when he broke down in tears during a speech about abortion while going ahead with his 2020 Presidential bid.
Kanye sobbed after telling the crowd that he and Kim discussed aborting their eldest child North West and said the couple “almost killed their daughter”.
Following the All Of The Lights hitmaker’s outburst, Piers insisted his wife Kim should “take a family crisis back behind closed doors and save her husband from himself”.
Speaking about the situation in his column for MailOnline, the journalist wrote in reference to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star: “Where is Kim in all this, anyway?
“I know her own publicity-seeking shamelessness knows no bounds, and that she gets a kick – and enormous financial reward – out of the world talking about the most intimate details of her family, however ugly the reasons.
“But what happened last night is beyond a joke. Her husband is beyond a joke.”
Piers continued: “He’s a mentally ill man with a lengthy history of bi-polar episodes who is currently self-imploding before the public’s eyes in a way that should horrify any wife.
“It was obvious to anyone with half a brain cell that Kanye’s absurd announcement several weeks ago that he was running for president – one an ecstatic Kim greeted with an emoji of an American flag – was going to blow up like this.
“Yet her only public pronouncements in recent days have been to post more semi-naked photos of herself on social media from her new underwear collection, to drive yet further vast wads of cash into the Kardashian bank vaults.”
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Kim and Kanye for comment.
During his rally, Kanye claimed that in 2013 Kim “had the pills in her hand” to have an abortion before he got a “message from God” to have the child.
“My girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I’m a rapper. And she said I’m pregnant. She was crying,” he recalled.
Kanye continued: “My screen went black and white. And God said, if you f*** with my vision I f*** with yours.
