Kanye West has made hands sway with his music and heads turn with his controversies. Passing through a very rough patch, the rapper found himself on the news frequently back in the late 2010s and early 2020s. Moreover, these testing times also often had Kim Kardashian looking to steer clear and condemn her husband’s actions. However, following several incidents, the socialite’s patience finally gave way to their high-profile split in 2022.

Despite fan allegations that Kardashian never did try enough for West, a newly leaked clip from 2018, doing the rounds, suggests otherwise.

A fairytale wedding that ended in chaos. Two years into their marriage, Kanye West feuded publicly on social media with Wiz Khalifa and broke the mended fences with Taylor Swift. Following it, reports came of him having bipolar disorder and a psychiatric emergency. However, after diagnosis, the situation was under control. Yet come 2018, West had put himself off medications. Now, in the leaked video, Kardashian can be heard ‘advising’ Ye, “I think it could be helpful, you want to be trying the best medicines out there.” 

In the phone call, initiated by the ‘Donda’ singer, he asked for his wife’s support instead of being labeled “narcissistic”. At the time of this conversation, back in 2018, Ye was receiving flak and heat from several factions on his misguided steps and remarks. Thus, his then-wife’s call for him to get on medications was one of her last-ditch attempts to save their marriage. Eventually, citing “irreconcilable differences,” Kardashian split from West with the latter coughing up $200,000 monthly in child support.
