I almost killed my daughter: Kanye West

The Kardashians have been left ‘shocked beyond words’ after Kanye West revealed that he and his wife Kim considered having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child North West.

The 43-year-old rapper made the comments during a rambling and chaotic speech at his first presidential rally at North Charleston’s Exquis Event Center in South Carolina on Sunday.

He revealed that he and his 39-year-old wife Kim had considered aborting their daughter North, who is now seven, before he got a ‘message from God’.

However, his unscripted speech, which came two weeks after he announced his unlikely bid for president, has since left his wife and her family upset and alarmed, TMZ reports.

Sources told the outlet that the family are ‘shocked beyond words’ by the Grammy-award winner’s personal revelation and feel he is in ‘desperate need of professional help’ for what they claim is a bipolar episode.

Family and friends close to Kanye have also been left upset because they feel the music artist is becoming a ‘distraction to what is a very important election’.

During his rally speech on Sunday, the rapper appeared to acknowledge that his comments would be met with a negative reaction by his family. He explained that if his wife were to divorce him after making the comments, he would still be thankful that she had North.

Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to,’ he said.

Those close to the rapper say they are also concerned that he is ‘tanking some of his business’ with his recent speeches and could ignite boycotts.

Kanye has been open about his struggle with bipolar disorder and, in 2016, he spent time in hospital after a ‘psychiatric emergency’ that forced him to cancel 21 concert dates.

During his rally speech, Kanye, who was dressed in a bullet-proof vest with 2020 shaved into his hair, shared that in 2013 Kim ‘had the pills in her hand’ to have an abortion before he was inspired by God to have the child.

‘My girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I’m a rapper. And she said I’m pregnant. She was crying,’ he said.

Kanye said he was weighing up what to do, when he received what he interpreted as a sign from God while he was working on his laptop in Paris.

‘My screen went black and white. And God said, if you f*** with my vision I f*** with yours,’ he yelled. ‘And I called my girlfriend and said we’re going to have this child.

‘Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into this world, when I did not want to.’

The rapper went on to break down in tears as he shouted: ‘She had the pills in her hand! I almost killed my daughter!’

Kanye also revealed that his father wanted to abort him but his mother Donda ‘saved his life’.

‘My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,’ he said.

Kanye spent much of the rally discussing abortion, and announced that he wanted women to be given money by the government for bearing children, to discourage abortion.

‘Abortion should be legal but the option of maximum increase should be available,’ he said.
