Kanye West recently made a surprising revelation in a text conversation with Elon Musk. The rapper, who has previously claimed to be bipolar, now asserts that he has “signs of autism” as a result of a car accident he was involved in back in 2002.
Kanye West has claimed that he experiences signs of autism stemming from a car accident he was involved in back in 2002. This revelation comes amid ongoing tensions with ex-wife Kim Kardashian and his suspension from social media for making antisemitic remarks. While the details of his discussions with Elon Musk remain undisclosed, Kanye’s assertion sheds light on the lasting impact of the car accident on his life.
A Text-Rant Revealing the Truth
In a series of texts posted by Ian Connor, a close associate of Kanye West, the rapper expressed his desire to speak with Elon Musk. He made it clear that the nature of their relationship needed to change and emphasized that he is not bipolar but rather shows symptoms of autism due to the car accident. Kanye also brought up his frustration over Kim Kardashian allegedly keeping their children from him and called out Elon for remaining silent on the matter.
It’s worth noting that Kanye had limited access to his social media accounts following his suspension in December for making antisemitic remarks. Elon Musk had suspended Kanye’s Twitter account at the time. Although the account was later reinstated, Kanye hasn’t been active on the platform since then.
A Troubled Relationship and Lingering Controversies
It remains unclear if Kanye and Elon have had private discussions regarding Kanye’s return to Twitter or any potential collaboration. However, one thing is evident from the text messages: Kanye is still in conflict with Kim Kardashian over custody of their children. Despite being seen in Italy with his wife, Bianca Censori, for several months, Kanye has had limited time with his kids, as evidenced by his recent visit with only one of them, Saint.
The Car Accident and Its Lasting Effects
Kanye West’s claim that he exhibits signs of autism as a result of the car accident is rooted in a tragic incident that occurred in October 2002. Reportedly, while driving home from a recording studio in the early hours of the morning, Kanye fell asleep behind the wheel of a rented Lexus and collided with an oncoming car. The accident resulted in Kanye shattering his jaw, while the other driver suffered two broken legs. Kanye’s jaw had to be wired shut during the healing process, an experience that inspired his hit song “Through the Wire.”
