Kanye West accuses Kim Kardashian of 'white supremacy', tweets he's seeking divorce

Fears are escalating for rapper Kanye West after he tweeted he's been trying to divorce his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, accusing her of "white supremacy".

"I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for prison reform," West wrote in a message late Wednesday night (NZ time) that was deleted minutes later.

"Meek is my man and was respectful [...] that's my dog [...] Kim was out of line [...] I'm worth 5 billion dollars and more than that though Christ [...] But ya'll ain't listen to MJ and now ya'll believe them???"

He also blasted mother-in-law Kris Jenner as "Kris Jong-Un" and accused the pair of "white supremacy".

"Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that's not what a wife should do [...] White supremacy," he tweeted.

A representative for Kardashian did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

West's mental health has been an issue of concern since earlier this week when he posted a series of tweets, which were also later deleted, claiming his wife was trying to have him locked up on medical grounds and comparing himself to Nelson Mandela.

Those came a day after West launched his US presidential campaign with a rambling rally in Charleston, South Carolina. At that event, he tearfully referenced a decision he said he made with wife Kim Kardashian not to abort a pregnancy.

At the time, Kardashian's representative also did not respond to requests for comment on those remarks.

West, 43, a former supporter of President Donald Trump, has left voters befuddled over whether his campaign is genuine or a publicity stunt to help sell albums or merchandise.

Earlier this month, TMZ reported that sources close to West believed his bid for US presidency was happening amid a "serious bipolar episode". In recent years, West has spoken openly about not taking his medication because of its alleged effect on his creativity.
