Kanye West has left fans seriously concerned after unleashing a string of erratic tweets accusing wife, Kim Kardashian West, and mother-in-law Kris Jenner of trying to have him ‘locked up’ after his controversial anti-abortion testimony earlier in the week.

The rapper, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, blindsided the world this month with his decision to run for presidential office in 2020.

And on Tuesday afternoon he took to Twitter, uploading a series of explosive tweets.

In one tweet he claimed wife Kim Kardashian was trying to have him ‘locked up’ after he said the pair had apparently contemplated aborting Kim’s pregnancy with their eldest daughter North West at his first presidential rally.

In two tweets that have since been deleted he directly addressed Kris Jenner, initially saying she is not allowed around his children and is also trying to have him locked up, and then sharing a screenshot of a text message to his mother-in-law accusing her of avoiding his calls.

Other tweets make reference to Kim’s past Playboy shoots, with the rapper writing his children will ‘never do Playboy’ and a separate tweet taking a swipe at Kris claiming Kim would ‘never photograph her daughter doing Playboy’ as Kris famously did in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The rapper also made several references to the horror film Get Out, which follows a Black American man who is held hostage by his white fiancée’s family.

Kanye has previously been hospitalised after suffering a mental breakdown and "temporary psychosis" in 2016, according to Us Weekly.

Kardashians ‘shocked beyond words’ after emotional rally

The concerning move from the rapper comes after reports the Kardashian family were “shocked beyond words” after he claimed he and Kim came close to aborting their daughter North.

The 43-year-old made the confession during his first-ever presidential rally - which was held in South Carolina on Sunday - and broke down in tears as he explained he “almost killed [his] daughter”.

Kim Kardashian West and the rest of the rapper’s family reportedly believe he is in “desperate need of professional help” for what they claim is a bipolar episode, according to TMZ.

They’ve also been left ‘upset’ because they feel he may be becoming a “distraction to what is a very important election”.

“[The] family is upset that Kanye talked about Kim's first pregnancy and how they discussed abortion, something he says he wanted,” an insider told the outlet.

“It's usually a topic married folk don't say out loud unless it's been discussed.”

Speaking for just over an hour, Kanye denounced abortion, swore, called on random audience members to speak, and sometimes seemed to be putting forward policy proposals on the fly.

He then grew even more emotional and nearly incoherent, as he revealed that he and wife Kim Kardashian considered not having their first child, North West.

“I remember that my girlfriend called me screaming and crying. And I’m just thinking - and at that time I was a rapper, I was out there, I had different girlfriends and everything. And I was like, I want to word this in a way that - hey I don’t give a f***.

“She said she was pregnant, and for one month, and two months, and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. When you take the pills, and if you take it, the baby’s gone,” he continued.

He then said he ‘got a message from God’ and called his wife to say ‘we’re gonna have this baby’.

“I said, ‘We’re gonna have this child. I know people that are 50 years old that didn’t have children, that have never been able to experience the level of joy that I experienced having a child,” he said.

“So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child.”

Kanye West has previously been hospitalised after suffering a mental breakdown and "temporary psychosis" in 2016, according to Us Weekly.

This breakdown occurred after his wife Kim Kardashian West was tied up in her Paris hotel and robbed, while he was thousands of kilometres away in the US.

The experience left him shaken and paranoid and according to the publication, he was "completely freaked out".

Kanye reportedly "hadn't slept in about a week" and was exhibiting "aggressive and terrifying outbursts" before being taken to hospital.

The rapper, however, calls his stint in the hospital a "breakthrough" not a "breakdown".

Kanye's family is reportedly "very concerned" for him with reports suggesting he is currently "in the middle of a serious bipolar episode".

According to TMZ, Kanye suffers from a serious bipolar episode approximately once a year and his decision-making abilities are hindered.

"Our sources say his family and those close to him are worried, but they believe things will stabilise as they have in the past,” the publication wrote.

"The problem here, is that Kanye's proclamations are causing problems."
