"Kim has been meeting with lawyers to explore and talk about divorce," a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

In Twitter rants this week, Kanye, 43, took aim at Kardashian klan matriarch Kris Jenner, calling her "Kris Jong-Un" and claiming Kris and Kim tried to have him involuntarily committed to a mental institution.

"Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up," he tweeted on Monday. "They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me."

In another tweet, he wrote: "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."

In the Jordan Peele-directed movie, the Black male character is forced to fight for his life after his white girlfriend and her family attempts to cut his brain out for a macabre experiment.

"Everybody knows the movie get out is about me" and "If I get locked up like Mandela Ya'll will know why," Kanye tweeted on Monday.

In a statement on her Instagram account, Kim discussed how Kanye's bipolar disorder has affected her family.

"As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health."

Kim clarified that "those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions."

Kim, 39, is reportedly "furious" over comments Kanye made during a South Carolina campaign rally, saying he asked her to abort their daughter North West. Kim reportedly expressed concern about him having another bipolar episode.

Kanye said he considered divorcing Kim after she met up with rapper Meek Mill to discuss "prison reform" in a hotel room. He added that Meek was a "gentleman" during the meeting, but he said Kim was "out of line" to meet with another man in a hotel room.

"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 through Christ. But ya'll ain't listen to MJ and now ya'll believe them???" [sic]

Kanye has been holed up at his $14 million Wyoming ranch where he goes to escape the stress of being part of the Kardashian klan that sucks Black men dry.

He targeted Kris Jenner again, telling her he is at his Cody, WY ranch if she needs to find him, "Unless you're planning another one of your children's' Playboy shoots."

Kanye West says he narrowly escaped being locked up on a mental ward following his bizarre presidential campaign stop in South Carolina over the weekend.

The father-of-four took to Twitter on Monday night to accuse his wife Kim Kardashian West of trying to lock him up on a mental ward.

Comparing his life to the Black character in the movie Get Out, the 43-year-old rapper made headlines when he held his first campaign rally and tearfully admitted that he wanted Kim to abort their daughter North West.

Kim, 39, was reportedly "furious" over what Kanye said during the rally, and she expressed concern about him having another bipolar episode.

The Yeezy star, who is holed up on his $14 million ranch in Wyoming, told his Twitter followers his wife and mother-in-law attempted to have him "locked up".

"Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor," he tweeted on Monday. "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" and "If I get locked up like Mandela Ya'll will know why."

Get Out is a horror flick by director Jordan Peele about a young Black man who visits his white girlfriend's family only to discover the sinister real reason for their invitation.

Kanye also addressed Kim's former sex tape, writing: "I put my life on the line for my children that North's mother would never sell her sex rape [sic]. I put my life on my God that Norths mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that's on God I'm at the ranch … come and get me."

Kanye then turned his attention to mother-in-law Kris Jenner, tweeting: "Kriss don't play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Ya'll tried to lock me up [sic].

"I love my wife My family must live next to me It's not up to E or NBC anymore."

Elsewhere in his tweets, Kanye revealed that actor Shia LaBeouf was set to star in his first Yeezy collaboration with GAP but didn't show up.

Later, Kanye insisted he was going to "focus on the music now", and plugged his new album Donda - named after his late mother - which is due for release on Friday, July 24.

Kim and Kris have yet to respond to Kanye's claims on their social media pages.
