Kanye West displaying narcissist behavior- Is it a cry for help?

Ye’ formerly known as Kanye West has been publicly putting his wife Kim Kardashian and their divorce on blast by ranting on social media. This weekend West went live explaining how he was not allowed to attend his daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday party, to only end up finding and crashing the party! Kanye has also purchased a home directly across the street from his former wife and children’s home that they shared, stating that he just wants to be close to his children at all times. Kim’s mom Kris Jenner and a lot of other fans felt that was definitely a weird move, but Ye’ defended himself in an interview by saying …

“My solace comes from seeing my kids and getting a solid schedule. That’s why I even got the house. The media flipped it into there was something wrong with me getting a house next to my kids.”

Now, we don’t fault Ye’ for wanting to be close to his children, but when it comes to putting Kim’s new boyfriend Pete Davison in one of his raps saying that he will beat his a**, and all of a sudden proclaiming his love for her once she starts dating, it’s giving us narcissist vibes! Already having the fame and the money, it wouldn’t be hard for Ye’ to fall victim to narcissist behavior.

A narcissist is classified as someone who has to be the best, and the most right. Someone who wants to do everything their way, own everything, and control everyone! They usually feel superior which is different than being self-confident, and they have a constant need for everything to be perfect. And, because they feel the need for everything to be perfect (which is an impossible task), they usually walk around feeling unsatisfied and miserable. Emotions we feel the rapper has been projecting since his mother Donda passed away in 2007!

Looking at Kanye’s life right now he seems to fall into more than one category within the Narcissist Personality Disorder. The fact that he wants to control when he can see, or even show up at his kids’ mom’s house proves he has work to do. Yes, being rich can buy you the house across the street, but can it save his marriage? It doesn’t look like it!
