Kanye West‘s family is very concerned for the rapper .
During a meeting with Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday, West who avidly supports and voted for the president in the 2016 election , claimed during a lengthy, televised discussion that he was “misdiagnosed” with bipolar disorder.
He also recently revealed that he is “off medication” he had previously been taking to treat the disorder.
A source close to West, told PEOPLE that, people in his inner circle “are telling him that he needs to get back on his medication, that he’s not doing well, that he’s not making any sense.”
“Now he’s in the Oval Office, and he’s doing the same rant, and that’s going to validate his rants,” shares the source.
“No one close to him can tell him that he’s sounding unhinged,” says the source, “because his answer is that the President of the United States doesn’t think so.”
Although the Kardashians have been an unwavering support system to him, the source says that
“the entire family is at the end of their ropes, and stuff like this won’t help.”
“They’re trying to help him get things where they should be, and it’s going to be that much harder now,” the source adds. “It’s a sad day.”
On Thursday, West met Donald Trump at the Oval Office, during which he dropped the F bomb, pounded on the Resolute Desk and gave the President a hug, labeled himself a ‘crazy motherf***er’, called the amendment that ended slavery a ‘trap door’ that should be abolished, joked about running for president in 2024 and said that Trump ‘is on his hero’s journey’.
West asserted at the meeting:
‘They tried to scare me to not wear this hat, my own friends, but this hat it gives me, it gives me power.
‘You know, my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also, I’m married to a family that, you know – not a lot of male energy going on. It’s beautiful though,’ he said, breaking into nervous laughter as he spoke about his wife Kim Kardashian West and her family.
‘I love Hillary. I love everyone, right? But the campaign “I’m with her” just didn’t make me feel, as a guy that didn’t get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son,’ he said. ‘It was something about, when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman. That’s my favorite super hero.’
