Celebrities’ lives are constantly under scrutiny and Kanye West has once again managed to send shockwaves through social media with a series of candid text messages he sent to none other than Elon Musk.
In these messages, Ye gets real about his mental health and his ongoing battle with ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
In a text-rant that has now gone viral, Kanye West reached out to the tech mogul with a message that left many people speechless. “When are we going to speak. You owe me nothing. You never have to speak to me again. But if we do speak. The nature of the relationship has to change. I’m not bipolar. I have signs of autism from my car accident.”
This statement is a revelation in itself. For years, people have accused Kanye West of being bipolar, but he’s now shutting down those rumors and revealing that he has “signs of autism.” It’s a bold and unexpected admission from a man who is known for his unfiltered and often controversial statements.
But the drama doesn’t stop there. Kanye continues, “You can’t watch Kim keep my kids from me. And not say anything publicly then call yourself my friend so I can bring my audience to your struggling platform.” This statement is a direct reference to his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who has primary custody of their four children.
If you’re wondering about the car crash that Kanye is referring to, he’s talking about the accident that shattered his jaw back in October of 2002 when he allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel. Kanye had to have his jaw wired shut during the healing process, which inspired his hit song “Through the Wire.”

Elon Musk suspended Kanye’s Twitter account after he made antisemitic remarks, including a statement about going “Go death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” The account was reinstated in July, but Kanye hasn’t been active on the platform since.
It’s unclear if Kanye and Elon have had private discussions about bringing him back to Twitter or if something else spurred these text messages. What is clear, though, is that Kanye is still at odds with Kim Kardashian over custody of their children.
