Kanye West has issued a grovelling Twitter apology to Kim Kardashian for airing their ‘private matters’ as he visited a local emergency room in Wyoming following a fleeting trip to California where he didn’t see his wife.
The rapper finally broke his silence over the state of his marriage Saturday afternoon, begging Kim for forgiveness after a week of rambling Twitter posts about their relationship in which he accused her of trying to ‘lock me up’ and said he was trying to divorce her.
This came as he visited Cody Regional Health in Wyoming, as concerns have been mounting over the mental health of the star who suffers from bipolar disorder and is currently thought to be in the throes of an episode.
A member of Kanye’s entourage later told DailyMail.com the rapper was visiting a friend at the hospital.
The quick trip came after he touched back down in Wyoming on a private jet following a three-hour visit to California where he visited an art studio in San Francisco but failed to meet with his wife.
Kanye has been holed up at his Wyoming ranch for almost a week but returned to California Saturday. During the visit, Kanye didn’t see wife Kim but was seen continuing to wear his wedding ring. The rapper wore leather pants and an orange hooded top for the short trip to see textile artist Tina Frey, who specializes in nature-inspired resin homeware.
Pieces available to buy on her website include a $152 toilet roll box, a $51 toothbrush holder and a $235 ‘arch sculpture’ all made from white resin.
Frey also makes items using brushed brass, with a toilet roll holder in the same material priced at $329, while a soap dispenser costs $276 and a vase $713.
Kanye is currently in the middle of building several biodome homes on his ranch which he hopes will be used as prototypes to create affordable accommodation for homeless people.
The trip is the second time the rapper has been shopping this week, after he was pictured enjoying a spot of retail therapy at a Cody Walmart with Damon Dash on Wednesday.
On that shopping expedition, he snapped up piles of children’s clothes and toys, which were then loaded into a pick-up truck by his entourage after the rapper had headed home.
His grovelling apology to wife Kim topped off what has been a fraught week for the celebrity duo after Kanye hit out at her several times on social media.
‘I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter,’ the rapper tweeted Saturday afternoon.
‘I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.’
He then followed up his apology with a tease for his new album Donda – named after his late mother – which had been due to be released Friday but was postponed.
