On Thursday, Kanye West alleged that his former personal trainer Harley Pasternak threatened to have him institutionalized and medicated.
The threats came after West was widely criticized for controversial statements online that led to his cancellation and Facebook and Twitter accounts to be restricted.
West revealed via screenshots that appear to be messages from Pasternak that he had reached out offering "help."
"First," he said, "you and I sit down and have an loving and open conversation, but … anything that is discussed is based in fact, and not some crazy stuff that dumb friend of yours told you, or you saw in a tweet."
"Second option," Pasternak continued in a threatening tone, "I have you institutionalized again where they medicate the crap out of you, and you go back to Zombieland forever. Play date with the kids just won't be the same."
"Even with all of that said," Pasternak concluded, "I still have lots of love in my heart for you, and my doors are always open."
Pasternak, who is Jewish, originally reached out to West expressing anger regarding the string of criticisms and accusations against Jews.
"Your origins might be Jewish," Pasternak suggested, adding that, "being a Jew is not just who your mother was, and her mother, and her mother … It's about how you act, How you think, And how you treat others."
"I will do anything, anything, if you could please apologize to my people," he added.
"It's my people too," West replied, to which Pasternak said, "OK. I love that."
"I was told that if I expose the truth of the bad business practices everything is gonna be taken from me Including my black children," West said on Twitter, suggesting that everyone has bore witness to "the public Emmett Tilling of Ye."
This is not the first time Pasternak has targeted West with mental health claims.
"I think Kanye a history of mental health issues," he told Newsweek in October, "and it appears that he's probably going through an episode right now. If people continue to give him a platform to discuss hateful, antisemitic rhetoric, they're complicit."
He applauded Facebook and Twitter for restricting West's accounts.
