On Monday night, rapper Kanye West posted a series of bizarre tweets aimed at his own wife, Kim Kardashian.
In one tweet, he claimed — while referencing his recent comments about almost aborting daughter North — that Kim “was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.”
“Everybody knows the movie get out is about me,” West added about the 2017 horror film by Jordan Peele, adding a racial element to his attacks on his wife and her family.
“I put my life on my God that North's mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that's on God," he continued. "I'm at the ranch... come and get me."
Along with posting a pic of his kids with Kardashian, he reiterated, “West children will never do playboy.”

It was an obvious slam, since Kardashian graced the cover of the iconic magazine in December 2007.
Many of his tweets have since been deleted. He claims he is now putting the focus on his new music, revealing that his new album “Donda” is set to drop on Friday. The album appears to be a tribute to his mom Donda, who died in 2007 following a round of plastic surgery. Her cause of death was confirmed as "coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty."

A source told Us Weekly, "Kim is deeply upset with Kanye for talking about their personal life and for making matters that are very personal to them and their family public."
Another insider told People magazine that Kim "has been trying to get Kanye help for weeks." They claimed, "Kim's family is around to support her as always. And they love Kanye. They want him to be healthy. They are all trying to figure out how to help Kanye. They are in contact with medical professionals for guidance."
The following day, Kanye's friend comedian Dave Chapelle flew to Wyoming to visit him. He tweeted a video, writing, "THANK YOU DAVE FOR HOPPING ON A JET TO COME SEE ME DOING WELL DAVE YOU ARE A GOD SEND AND A TRUE FRIEND ALL LOVE ."

Kanye’s Twitter rant came hot on the heels of his first campaign rally in South Carolina, where he got emotional discussing North. During the rally, Kanye claimed that he and Kim came close to terminating her pregnancy. He said, “She was crying… and for one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand."
He told the crowd a message from God led to the decision for Kim to have North after all. "I'm in the apartment where my wife was actually robbed, and I have my laptop up and I have all of my creative ideas, I’ve got my shoes, I’ve got my next song cover… and the screen went black-and-white, and God said, 'If you f--- with my vision I’m gonna f--- with yours.' And I called my wife and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby,’ and I said ‘We’re gonna have this child.’"
Sobbing, West blurted out, "I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter! I love my daughter!"
As for her reaction to his confession, Kanye told the crowd, “Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to."
For all the high drama of the event, West failed to get on the ballot in South Carolina.
