Kanye West (opens in new tab) wants to make amends with his wife, Kim Kardashian (opens in new tab), after the controversial comments he's made about their private lives recently. The rapper, who is currently staying at his ranch in Cody, Wyoming, took to Twitter on Friday to apologize to Kim (opens in new tab) and publicly ask her for forgiveness.

"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," he wrote (opens in new tab). "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."

Kanye's apology comes after Kim shared a heartfelt message (opens in new tab) about her husband's mental health and how it relates to his recent comments on Instagram. In part, she wrote:

"As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health."

"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try."
