Kim Kardashian has finally broken her silence on Kanye West's rants about her.

She decided to release a statement about his mental health and his experience with bipolar disorder amid claims divorce lawyers have been called.

Kanye, 43, claimed he had been trying to divorce Kim ever since she went to a hotel room with rapper Meek Mill as he accused her of trying to get him "locked up" for his rants.

It's now been claimed that Kim, 39, has met with divorce lawyers to discuss the future of their relationship.

But Kim made no mention of the divorce when she took to Instagram on Wednesday to discuss his recent outbursts.

Kim wrote: "As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder.

"Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.

"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of my children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health.

"But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.

"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the person is a minor.

"People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.

"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, experienced the personal loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is highlighted by his bipolar disorder.

"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions."

Kim is thought to be seeking legal advice after Kanye's outburst.

"Kim has been meeting with lawyers to explore and talk about divorce," a source told Us Weekly.

Kim had reportedly "wanted to make it work" "because of their children".

It's also been claimed that Kim is holding off on divorcing for now because it doesn't look good.

"Now is not the right time for divorce," a source told Page Six on Wednesday. "They're smart enough to know it's not a good look.

"She'll put on a show of trying to support him, then a divorce can happen later."

On Sunday Kanye is said to have "humiliated" Kim after he claimed they almost aborted their daughter North, seven.

He also said he didn't care if Kim divorced him as she gave him North. Kanye then tweeted and deleted a series of Twitter threads criticising Kim and her family. He said he had been trying to divorce Kim since she went to a hotel room with rapper Meek Mill.

He also claimed Kim and her mum Kris Jenner had tried to get him "locked up" for his outbursts. Then he said she was a white supremacist. He also declared that Kris is banned from seeing his four children, North, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one.
