Kanye West is no stranger to mental illness. He suffers from Bipolar Disorder and revealed to the public in 2016 that he is Bipolar. Although he is struggling with the mental illness, when he revealed that he was mentally ill, he said, "Best believe I'm going to take the stigma off of the word crazy."
Kanye West does not take medication for the disorder. According to wife and reality TV star, Kim Kardashian-West, he doesn't take it because it changes who he is. Because of this and because of the fact that he doesn't know how to act in public and especially acts out at his own shows, Kardashian has put out a lot of money to help him cope with the mental illness better and live a better life even with it.
