Considering some of the strange comments that have come out of the mouth of Kanye West lately, it is not a big shocker that friends are saying that Kanye West needs some major help in the way of therapy. Therapy of the mental health sort, and fast, before his behavior can no longer be explained away by KUWTK Kris Jenner, or covered up by exclusivity arrangements with the likes of the MSG staff.
According to the Inquisitr, the West-Kardashian behavior has gone from eccentric to just plain odd lately, as the couple is pondering a move to England to play lord and lady of the manor. Kanye West takes his image very seriously, and believes that the English countryside would be a better fit for himself and Kim Kardashian, along with their two children. West is having a portrait painted of his family to go over the mantle of a potential country castle. A move that they believe that will open all of the doors they need.

NME is reporting that Rhymefest, Kanye West’s co-writer quit their collaboration, saying that Kanye West needs counseling. Rhymefest says that he is making the point that Kanye West really needs some serious help, before it is too late.
“I love my brother. I pray for his health not our entertainment,” he said later. “@lord_cornwall nah his mind and spirit isn’t right”
Another person commented that he wishes that Rhymefest would take over writing Kanye West’s tweets.
“@JakeChatty my brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental. He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal”

US Weekly is reporting that Rhymefest believes that Kanye West needs spiritual and mental health help soon. Some of Kanye West’s recent comments have been odd, and others simply don’t make sense, including lyrics to some of Kanye’s latest songs.
“I feel like me and Taylor [Swift] might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.” Shortly after, the “Bad Blood” singer’s squad took to social media to express their disappointment with the lyrics.
Rhymefest says he won’t be working with Kanye West anytime soon until he gets his head right. Fans are curious to see if West’s career now tanks.

Scout of New Zealand says that it is odd that many of Kanye West’s meltdowns seem to center around Taylor Swift. And fans are wondering if this sudden burst of crazy is a PR stunt centered around the dropping of his new album and the Grammy Awards, or if it’s just plain crazy. Rhymefest is a Grammy Award winning writer, and has nothing to gain by questioning the mental health of Kanye West, so what is really going on?
Kanye West’s lyrics about claims that he is responsible for the success of Taylor Swift are odd at best. Kanye claims that he cleared the lyrics with Swift in advance, but Swift and her people say that it is untrue.
“Kanye did not call for approval,” the rep told Gossip Cop. Apparently Kanye had initially asked Taylor to put a link to the song on her Twitter account, but “she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message”.
Swift claims she would have never waived off such language in reference to women.
“Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that b**ch famous,'” the rep concluded.
Perhaps attacking Taylor Swift has gotten Kanye West press before, when he ranted about Beyonce (much to the embarrassment of Beyonce, who also had no clue that West was going to lose it), so he thought it might work again?
“3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo (conversation) with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings… 4th B**ch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word N**ga… 5th thing I’m not even gone take credit for the idea… it’s actually something Taylor came up with…
“She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s (sic) name I will keep out of this and she told him… I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS.”

Model Gigi Hadid, who is also a friend of Taylor Swift, also is trying to distance herself from the anti-female Kaney rants.
“I’m so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always.” she tweeted. “My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty.”
It seems like Kanye West in no way anticipated that women might not like the use of the word b****, which seems to be only his latest miscalculation.
Do you think Kanye West needs to get some mental health help?
