Kim Kardashian is an American socialite, media influencer and businesswoman, and Kanye West is a fashion designer and rapper. The couple got married on May 24, 2014, in Florence, Italy, and now have four children together. 

West has been diagnosed as having bipolar disorder, and has been known to be very outspoken. Bipolar Disorder is a mental health disorder that causes extreme mood shifts from episodes of mania to depression. During the rocky year of 2020, West decided to run for President, and during a campaign rally shouted without a microphone and talked about very personal and emotional things regarding his family; and during a Twitter rant West accused mother-in-law Kris Jenner and Kardashian of forcing medical intervention on him. The disorder can be managed with medications to help stabilize moods. According to MedPage Today and Kim Kardashian, Kanye doesn’t want to go on medications because he says it alters who he is. 

Kardashian filed for divorce on Friday, Feb. 19. Both are asking for joint custody of their four children. The couple have been living apart for some time, and the rapper is currently residing in their home in Wyoming. They have yet to work out the details of the divorce.
