Kanye West once again wiped off all his Instagram posts, but he returned with a new Stories post. The rapper shared a cryptic message in which he seemed to put himself in the same league as the Bible’s Moses. Ye also seemed to suggest that those around him were concerned about his sleep schedule or lack thereof.
West’s Insta Stories post featured white text on a simple black background, similar to many of his posts in recent weeks. West wrote, “No one asked Moses how much he slept.” Kanye apparently wanted his followers to see the proper sentiment, as he initially posted a version of the text with a typo, before deleting it and reposting a corrected version.
West has previously been open about suffering from bipolar disorder, a condition that includes large mood swings between elevated states of mania and depression. The rapper recently detailed his co-parenting lifestyle with ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who filed divorce papers in February 2021 after six years of marriage. The duo, who went public with their relationship in 2012 and married in 2014, share four children together, North West, Saint West, Chicago West, and Psalm West.
“Even to this day, I’ll still give Kim advice on things that can help, because that’s gonna go to the kids,” Kanye said on the Mind Full podcast. “She’s still got to, basically, 80 per cent of the time, raise those children.” When the SKIMS founder filed divorce papers, she cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and requested joint legal and physical custody of the four children. He also requested joint custody in his official response in April 2021.
Though divorce proceedings between Kanye and Kim are still underway, the KKW Beauty mogul was declared legally single in March 2022. In his latest podcast episode, Kanye further spoke about control. “Everybody wants everyone so doped out, so controlled out, that you’re not allowed to even stand for the things you’re handing to your family,” the Donda 2 artist said. “The idea of taking control and opinions away from the mother or the father takes away a person’s meaning and life.”
