Kanye West doesn't think he has bipolar disorder.
The 'Bound 2' rapper - who is married to 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian West - believes he was just battling with "sleep deprivation" rather than the mental health disorder.
Speaking to President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday afternoon (11.10.18), he said: "What I think is we don't need sentences, we need pardons. We need to talk to people. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I was connected with a neuropsychologist that works with the athletes in the NBA and NFL. He looked at my brain. I wasn't actually bipolar, I had sleep deprivation which can cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now when I wouldn't even remember my son's name."
And the 41-year-old rapper - who has North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, eight months, with his wife Kim - previously revealed he has learned to embrace his bipolar disorder.
He explained: "I think it's important for us to have open conversations about mental health - especially with me being black. Because we never had therapists in the black community. We never approached taking a medication. I think it's good that when I had my first complete blackout at age five, my mom didn't fully medicate me. Because I might have never been 'Ye. And there's times where at least I'm happy that I know [I'm bipolar.] Like, even like for this interview, I knew I wanted to stay in a calm state."
