Kanye West claims he has ‘autism from car accident’ in leaked text message

Kanye West claims he has ‘autism from car accident’ in leaked text message

Kanye West has suggested he is autistic in a new text to Elon Musk.

Kanye West has suggested he is autistic in a text allegedly sent to Elon Musk.

The disgraced rapper has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons as of late, following a series of antisemitic rants, such as admitting that he 'likes Adolf Hitler' and has an admiration for Nazis.

X (Twitter) temporarily banned Ye's account after he tweeted an image of a swastika inside the Star of David.

In the wake of his controversies, Balenciaga's parent company, Kerring - who used to work with West - said 'Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor plans for any future projects related to this artist'.

But no doubt, the biggest break-off was with his hugely successful partnership with Adidas.

On 25 October, Adidas announced it had cut ties with Ye after a nearly decade-long partnership, a move that would cost the company 250 million euros ($246 million) that year.

The partnership reportedly accounted for $1.5 billion of Kanye's net worth, which meant he would lose his billionaire status, according to Forbes.

“I can say antisemitic things and Adidas can't drop me,” the musician bragged in October.

Over the past 10 years or so, the state of Kanye's mental health has been under the spotlight as he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2018 - although he later claimed he was 'mentally misdiagnosed'.

Now, taking to Instagram, the rapper suggested he is autistic, as he appeared to ask his fashion friend, Ian Connor, to share screenshots from the text messages he allegedly sent to the Tesla boss.

“When are we going to speak You owe me nothing,” the texts, posted early Wednesday (18 October), read.

“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 [2002] car accident.

“You can’t watch Kim keep my kids from me. And not say anything publicly and then call yourself my friend so I can bring my audience to your struggling platform.”

“Say Less,” Connor replied. “2:22 a.m.”

After Musk temporarily banned Kanye from X, the rapper lashed out at him on Instagram in 2022, writing: “Am I the only one who thinks Elon could be half Chinese? Have you ever seen his pics as a child?”

“Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African super model, and we have an Elon.

“I say an Elon because they probably made 10 to 30 Elon’s and he’s the first genetic hybrid that stuck …. well, let’s not forget about Obama. I’m sorry for using curse words in church but I don’t have another word for Obama yet. YE24 let’s unify and find out LUAFO.”

“I take that as a compliment!” Elon responded.
