Kanye West spent his Monday evening going after Kris Jenner’s parenting skills and accusing Kris of plotting with Kim Kardashian to have him locked up. On Tuesday night, he called her “Kris Jong-un.” Kim Kardashian spoke about Kanye’s actions, saying that he lives every day with bipolar disorder, and that things have been made more complicated by isolation in quarantine. So with that being said, plenty of people have accepted Kanye’s Twitter activity as a bi-polar moment playing out in real-time.
Blac Chyna, a long-time member of the Kardashian ESAPs (ex-spouses and partners), has released a statement regarding Kanye’s current situation. And she would like all of us to know that none of us should be writing off Kanye’s comments as just some random side-effect of his mental health struggles.
Chyna is kind of following in Dave Chappelle’s lead here, who once spoke about “crazy” celebrities on Inside the Actors Studio, saying the truth is that they’re strong people that are maybe in a “sick” environment (it’s a clip that’s recently gotten a lot of play in regards to Kanye’s present situation). Dave’s argument was that “crazy” is used to dismiss a person. Chyna also says that no one should be calling Kanye “crazy.” Chyna released a statement through her attorney, and she feels entitled to speak on this, I guess because Kanye is her daughter’s uncle. Or maybe it’s because she’s currently in the middle of several lawsuits with various Kardashians, and hey – if you’re paying to keep your lawyer around, you might as well get your money’s worth. via Page Six:
“Chyna of course wants her daughter Dream’s ‘Uncle Kanye’ to get whatever help he needs. However, Chyna does not want all of his recent statements regarding his mother-in-law summarily dismissed as ‘crazy’ as some people apparently would like to do.”
It doesn’t take a genius to guess that Chyna is most likely pointing an elegantly manicured finger in Kim Kardashian’s direction with that, “as some people apparently would like to do” statement. Because, as mentioned up top, Kim’s statement about Kanye places the blame squarely on Kanye’s mental health issues, the subtext of which is basically that Kanye isn’t telling the truth when he tweets. However, Chyna would also like everyone to know that she’s not on Team Kanye completely:
While Chyna, “vehemently disagrees” with West’s statements that “slavery was a choice” and that Harriet Tubman “never freed slaves,” [Chyna] maintained the rapper’s comments regarding his mother-in-law “should not be entirely ignored” based on her negative experience working with Jenner.
Just in case there was a splinter of wood left unburned on that bridge, Chyna’s lawyer also mentioned to Page Six that Chyna has submitted further evidence in her case against the Kardashian-Jenners. Chyna claimed back in 2017 that Kris and her kids hatched a plan to prevent Rob & Chyna from getting a second season, thus taking away a major source of income from Chyna. Chyna’s attorney says that Chyna submitted evidence that allegedly proves Kris Jenner was lying when she claimed she saw Chyna get violent with Rob Kardashian. Chyna also allegedly has evidence that Kris called Chyna “ghetto” after accusing Chyna of taking food from Kris’ fridge.
It’s very nice of Blac Chyna to help validate Kanye’s online criticisms of Kris, but…did she need to? We all pretty much know that Kris is an opportunist who has made a lucrative career out of exploiting her kids, and their kids, and their partners. Frankly, I’d be more shocked if Blac Chyna had released a statement saying: “Please don’t listen to him, Kris is a sweet woman. I’m sure she is very upset by all the attention this has brought her family.”
