Kanye West ‘may be slightly autistic’ but isn’t bipolar, according to Ye.

Kanye West says he’s not ‘bipolar’ but ‘autistic’ in Text Message to Elon Musk’s

YE aka Kanye West’s revealed his behavior due to car accident resulted in autism.

Back in 2002, West’s had a car accident left him with his jaw wired shut, inspiring his breakout hit “Through the Wire” — but he also believes it’s responsible for him being slightly autistic.

On Wednesday (October 18), in a recent text message the Chicago rap mogul sent to Elon Musk, one which he later asked fashion designer and model Ian Connor to publicize on social media on his behalf.


Connor, a close collaborator of Kanye’s, obliged by sharing screenshots of the message on Instagram in the early hours of Wednesday morning (October 18), along with his own text conversation with Ye (who is saved in his phone as “President YE”).

In his text to Elon Musk, West asked to speak with the Tesla CEO and X (formerly known as Twitter) chairman and called him out for not publicly supporting him amid his divorce from Kim Kardashian.

Kanye also demanded that the “nature of [their] relationship” change, denying a previous admission that he’s bipolar and claiming he has “signs of autism from [his] car accident.”

“When are we going to speak,” Kanye texted Musk. “You owe me nothing,” Ye said. ”You never have to speak to me again. But if we do speak. The nature of the relationship has to change. I’m not bi polar. I have signs of autism from my car accident.”

Kanye concluded. “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.”

After sending a screenshot of the text to Connor, Kanye told the controversial fashion figure: “Get this out to the public.”

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

The two moguls have adored each other for more than a decade. Elon Musk and Kanye West don’t appear to have much in common at first glance, but the pair have a years-long relationship.
