Faces of Mental Illness: Kanye & Tamar Kevin Fleming July 21, 2020 Entertainment, Music News 1 Tamar Braxton’s fans are praying that people show Kanye West as much compassion as they showed her over the last several days amid her hospitalization. The 43-year-old is in stable condition and on the road to recovery after a possible suicide attempt. The “Braxton Family Values” star was rushed to the hospital on Thursday evening and prayers immediately poured in with many expressing concern over her mental state. On Monday, July 20, Kanye West appeared to have a mental breakdown when he took to Twitter to slam his wife, Kim Kardashian, and mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, claiming they were trying to “lock him up.” Unlike Tamar Braxton, fans were not supportive on social media with several users poking fun at Kanye West’s mental health and even giving Kim Kardashian the green light to end their six-year marriage. #PrayForKanye immediately began trending on Twitter but several people who used the hashtag abused the rapper, taking jabs at him over the breakdown. Now, Tamar Braxton’s fans are pleading with trolls to give Kanye West as much “compassion” as they showed the singer as it appears the two are both struggling with their own inner demons. Related One Response R&B Guru July 23, 2020 Mental illness can be rough. I know it can be tough on the family, so I respect Kim taking the heat from Kanye while trying to help him get better. Hopefully they’re able to find a medication plan that will work for him and get him back on track. Just want the guy to be about his music again and not all his crazy history/politics talk.
