In case you missed it, over the last week Kanye West's made a rather bizarre return to social media. In the last 24 hours, he's tweeted 81 times on everything from his 2024 election campaign to Donald Trump.

Here are some of the highlights:

Calling Trump his "brother":

And some humble observations:

In short, it's been one helluva ride.

The erratic behaviour has many questioning whether Kanye's experiencing mental health issues.

Kim, however, calls these speculations "not fair" and set the record straight with her own series of tweets:

"To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair".

"Yesterday it was announced that Kanye had parted ways with some business people and media outlets made this about Kanye's mental health. Rather than just a simple business decision. So I'm glad he tweeted about the state of his company and all of the exciting things happening".

"He's a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That's just not fair. He's actually out of the sunken place when he's being himself which is very expressive".

"Now when he spoke out about Trump... Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this. But this is HIS opinion. I believe in people being able to have their own opinions, even if really different from mine. He never said he agrees with his politics".

"Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion and we know that and that's why I love him and respect him and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing but they aren't labeled the way he is and you will all praise them! Kanye is years ahead of his time".

"Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line".

So, basically Kim says Kanye's just being Kanye.
