Justin Bieber visited Kanye West in Wyoming & encouraged Ye to talk to Kim

This was not the storyline I expected to come out of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s current dramas. As we’ve discussed, Kanye is in a manic phase and has been for weeks. Kim tried to contact him and get him help but he refused to see her or speak to her for a while, and then he began attacking her and her family on Twitter last week. On Monday, Kim did fly to Wyoming and she spent about 24 hours there, and it was reportedly an exhausting experience. She’s already back in LA. But how did Kanye and Kim get to talking again? Justin Bieber. For real. Bieber intervened. Justin and Kanye are both managed by Scooter Braun, and they’ve been friendly for years.

As Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West navigate an exceedingly tense period in their marriage, a famous friend has stepped in to help. Justin Bieber, a longtime pal of both West’s and Kardashian’s, flew to Cody, Wyoming, on July 24 to visit with the beleaguered rapper, who suffers from bipolar disorder, following his emotional outbursts at a political rally and on social media.

“Justin wants to be supportive,” an insider tells PEOPLE of Bieber, who, along with wife Hailey, spent time on the ranch where West, 43, has been staying while Kardashian, 39, remained in Los Angeles with their four children. “Justin knows that Kanye has been making new music [in Cody] and appreciates how much pressure it is to produce new music.”

The insider says that Bieber, 26, is also “beyond supportive” when it comes to issues with mental health: “Justin struggled for so long himself before he got proper help.” Bieber, who wed Hailey in 2018, was also particularly sympathetic when it came to West’s drama with Kardashian, who sources say was “deeply hurt” following her husband’s recent disclosures about their marriage and family.

“Kanye ghosted Kim,” says a source close to the couple. “She tried to reach him for days, but he wouldn’t answer calls and he wouldn’t answer texts.” Despite publicly apologizing to his wife on Twitter on July 26, “Kanye didn’t want to face Kim,” the source continues. “He doesn’t mind having a public spectacle but he avoids conflict when he’s like this. He knows he disappointed her and that kills him.”

So when Bieber intervened, “he told Kanye that he needed to talk to Kim,” says the source. “And Kanye finally texted Kim and they talked on the phone.”

Days later, on July 27, an emotional Kardashian arrived in Cody. “She has a lot to say to him,” says the source. “She loves him, but she knows that it’s not healthy for her to be around him now, and it’s honestly not healthy for the kids. He needs to get his stuff together before he can be any sort of partner or father.”

As far as Bieber, “he wants to make sure Kanye is doing well,” says the insider. “That’s what friends are for.”

Don’t hate me for saying this, but I kind of respect Justin for what he did in this situation? He’s had some mental health issues as well and he’s been converted to the gospel of talk therapy and couples therapy. He and Hailey were in couples therapy as soon as they got together, and I would not be surprised if Justin suggested couples therapy to Kanye, along with suggesting actual medical help? Anyway… Kanye ghosted Kim because he talked so much sh-t on Twitter and then he didn’t want to face the consequences of all that sh-t talk. Peak Kanye.

    I cannot believe that it took someone young enough to be his son to convince him to call back his wife.

  2. Alissa says:

    I was surprised by this at first, but put in the context of his long-standing friendships with the Kardashians and West, has well as his struggles in the spotlight and with his own mental health, it does make sense.

    I don’t think West is managed by scooter Braun anymore though. I think he stopped being his manager a couple years ago.

  3. Ariel says:

    I don’t think anyone had Justin Bieber- voice of reason and dispenser of marital advice on their 2020 bingo card.
    But- and he was famous very early- some pop stars seem to never grow out of being brats.
    Impressed that he seems like a grown up.

    Slightly off the subject of Bieber, one of the writers at buzzfeed wrote a really good article about Kanye and media and how we talk about mental health. Worth a read.

  4. denisemich says:

    I understand that as soon as Kanye announced a presidential bid his private struggle became public.
    Who is leaking all of this to the press? Is it the Kardashians? When Kanye is in Wyoming we don’t hear anything about him until he tweets. So these stories aren’t coming from his camp.

  5. Lisa says:

    Good for Justin if he was able to talk some sense into Kanye and get him to communicate with Kim.

  6. Jules says:

    When Bieber is the voice of reason, we know the world has really turned upside down.

  7. Tootsie McJingle says:

    I’m sorry. I still can’t get past an adult professional voluntarily using the name Scooter. How am I supposed to take that seriously?

  8. margedebarge says:

    If JB hadn’t ever sought treatment he could be behaving just as badly as Kanye right now, and I’m sure he’s well aware of that. It makes sense that he was the person able to talk sense into Kanye. They share mental health struggles and similar Christian philosophies, but JB is also really into therapy and that specific type of self-improvement. I’m no fan of Kanye but for his kids‘ sake I hope he’s able to get it together.

      Honestly ten years ago I never thought the Biebs would be here, but this is a lovely gesture.

      Men talking to men about mental health can be a challenge and Biebs doing so is excellent.

      • molly says:

        Good for Justin. He really does seem to be in a happy, stable, healthy place. I still have my reservations that he and Hailey will last (so young, so many real challenges, so much pressure on each other), but props to them for what they’ve done so far.

  9. Heather says:

    Given his own struggles with mental health, along with his strong connection to religion, I’d say that Justin Beiber was quite a logical choice to be the one to reach out to Kanye. He also has nothing to gain by doing it, which would remove any potential paranoia that Kanye might be feeling towards other people during his episode. I hope it was helpful.
    In light of this revelation, however, I can’t help but feel that one of the “sources” that has been offering information might just be Hailey Beiber.

  10. JustMe2 says:

    I think we nailed it when we saidHailey or Bieber typed that apology to Kim

  11. Jensies says:

    I mean…this is one of the hardest parts on bipolar disorder, all the shame and guilt when the manic episode finally ends and folks see how mania tornado’d their lives. It’s a hard spot to be in. It was good of Justin to help.
