Kanye West alleged he escaped being drugged by a “Jewish doctor” who previously “misdiagnosed” him with a mental health disorder, suggesting the medic could be motivated to cause him to overdose in the wake of his antisemitic comments.
The DONDA rapper, who previously stated he has bipolar disorder calling it a “superpower,” made the allegations while speaking to paparazzi on Friday.
Ye claimed he was previously suffering from “exhaustion which was misdiagnosed.” He then makes a show of saying he’s not going to say what “race” or “people,” the doctor belongs to. “We know I can’t say that,” before immediately following up with, “It was a Jewish doctor.”
He alleged the physician “misdiagnosed” him with a “disorder” and advised him to take medication.
“At a time like this, if I was on medication right now, then one pill could’ve been swapped out, and it would be Michael Jackson and Prince all over again,” Kanye West stated.
“But because I didn’t take the misdiagnosis, and I didn’t take the medication, I’m able to speak to you guys clear of thought and transparently,” he added.
Both artists Kanye referenced died from an overdose, with Michael Jackson’s death ruled a homicide at the hand of his doctor. While Prince died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, some outlandish conspiracy theories exist.
Elsewhere during his conversation with the paparazzi, Ye doubled down on his rhetoric that the media and Hollywood are controlled by Jewish people.
Kanye West Compares Himself To George Floyd
Kanye West has also addressed the backlash to his claims about George Floyd. He said Floyd was not murdered by police officer Derek Chauvin but died of a fentanyl overdose. However, he likened himself to the police brutality victim while apologizing for his remarks.
“It hurt the Black people,” Kanye West said. “So I want to apologize for hurting them because right now God has shown me by what Adidas is doing, and by what the media is doing, I know how it feels to have a knee on my neck now.”
