Kanye West lefts fans concerned on Friday as he shared a disturbing tweet about being murdered and having his eldest daughter taken away from him.
The 43-year-old rapper, whose mental health issues have been well documented, posted and then deleted the worrying message which was addressed to daughter North, seven, early on Friday morning.
‘NORTHY I AM GOING TO WAR AND PUTTING MY LIFE ON THE LINE AND IF I AM MURDERED DON’T EVER LET WHITE MEDIA TELL YOU I WASNT A GOOD MAN… WHEN PEOPLE THREATEN TO TAKE YOU OUT OF MY LIFE JUST KNOW I LOVE YOU.’ the designer wrote.

In one tweet he wrote: ‘A CREED FOR ALL WARRIORS WHO FIGHT IN THE NAME OF JESUS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AT ALL COST WE ARE NOT AFRAID OF DEATH WE ARE NOT AFRAID OF HUMILIATION WE ARE NOT AFRAID BANKRUPTCIES WE ONLY FEAR GOD.’
He also declared: ‘I am the head of adidas… I will bring adidas and puma back together and bring me and jay back together… all pumas designs are embarrassingly trash but I will personally design puma and adidas and make everything ok.’
The rapper also talked about the music industry and the ownership of masters – otherwise known as the copyright to his original songs – which he ranted about on Twitter earlier this week.
That Twitter storm on Wednesday got him suspended for 24 hours by the microblogging site.
He had shared a video of himself urinating on one of his Grammy Awards and posted a string of messages about his battle with record labels Universal and Sony – including screenshots of his contracts with the former.
On Wednesday, Twitter removed one post featuring the phone number of Forbes’ Chief Content Officer, Randall Lane.
Once the suspension was lifted, the rapper was tweeting again on Thursday, taking aim at the music industry and calling on artists to unite to change the system.
A source told PEOPLE that Kanye is ‘off his meds’ and wife Kim is ‘at the end of her rope – again’.
‘The last time, part of his negotiation with Kim was that he’d get back on his medication and he would work very hard to control his impulses,’ the source told the outlet. ‘He made a lot of promises. And now those promises are broken, less than a month later.

Rant: Earlier this week the All Day hitmaker shared a video of himself urinating on his Grammy Awards and has posted a string of messages about his battle with record labels
‘It’s the same thing over and over and over again. He’s on very thin ice with her right now, and she’s truly trying to decide what to do to protect the kids, but also her own sanity.’
The source added that Kim ‘wants to be a supportive partner, she’s doing everything she can do to support him’. However, they add that Kanye has to support himself and take care of his own health.
‘For such a powerful woman, she feels very powerless, and she hates it,’ the source said. ‘She loves Kanye very much, and he just doesn’t realize how much pain he’s causing her.’
Kanye first acknowledged his bipolar disorder in 2018, a condition that is associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs and can be controlled with medication.
Kim hinted last month that his struggle with bipolar was to blame for his recent erratic behavior, that has seen him embark on the unlikely bid for presidency and get emotional at his first campaign rally in South Carolina while discussing abortion.
Two months ago, the Runaway hitmaker ruthlessly lambasted Kim and her famous family on Twitter.

During the aggressive tirade, Kanye alleged that Kim was trying to ‘bring a doctor to lock [him] up’ and compared her mother Kris Jenner to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
He even admitted to his followers that he had been trying to divorce Kim for two years.
Kanye later apologized to his online audience and to Kim for the out of line tweets and he has since left talk of his marriage off social media.
Kanye and Kim wed in 2014 and share four children together, daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one.
