Kanye West's former stepdad who helped him raise says that the reason of his breakdown is because of the pending grief over the death of his beloved mother.

The former stepdad of famous rapper Kanye West, 43, Ulysses Blakeley, 67, lived with Kanye and his late mother Donda throughout his childhood as it was him who bought Kanye and his mother first home on South Shore Drive in Chicago. Ulysses says that he was 'distressed' when he saw the bipolar rapper tweeting about divorcing his wife Kim Kardashian, 39, and referring his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, 64, as Krins Jung-un.

Ulysses, who still lives in Kanye's home in Chicago says, “I saw Kanye from the beginning and really have nothing but love and positive feelings for him. I’m distressed to see him in distress. I actually haven’t seen any of the clips or excerpts, but heard about his breakdown. It seems to be a sort of profound, unresolved grief. He feels some isolation. If his mother was around, which of the other things in his life wouldn’t have happened, or would have happened differently? (He’s missing the) large family framework, which sustains you when you have a tragedy like your mother suddenly dying.”

Before Donda's demise she had revealed about the special relation Kanye and Ulysses shared in her biography "Raising Kanye" in 2007. Donda in her biography wrote: “I thought he was going to be my last love. He and I had a great relationship. Kanye liked him a lot. He would take Kanye to the park for hours near his apartment building.” 

Kanye and Ulysses were good friends until Kanye left for singing a deal with Roc-a-fella records at the age of 18 in New York. He says that Kanye being 'special' has a tight inner circle and has no childhood friends around him who really knows his mother to soothe him and get him out of his vexed grief. He said: “He went into an adult and clearly competitive world at 18 I don’t know that he was prepared for that. That was the last time I had any contact with him at all. Part of the problem is that if you are special you don’t form relationships like other people because you are so different. There is some value in personal contact in long-term continuity. You gain the understanding that people are in your life for you, not because of what you have and what you can get for them. It doesn’t appear that he has a long-term continuity that everyone else has. It doesn’t matter how showbizzy the Kardashians are, they’ve still got continuity from birth until now. The same people are still around them. I don’t know that there is that for Kanye. Everyone needs people who knew their mother from way back then, to talk with them, and transition through the loss of that person. If the people, who's comforting you didn’t know your mother, never met your mother, then their ability to bridge your emotional state from having her, and then not, is impaired. You are kind of isolated in some way.”

Besides this, he just laughed about Kanye running for US president as he thinks that he is just joking about running for office. Further he added, “It’s one of those things said in jest and because you have resources and people to make things come true and bring into existence. You tell them: ‘Yeah, I meant that’. So they act on what you said, even though when you said it, it’s s**** and giggles. Because you have a couple hundred million, it becomes a thing, not because you have political instincts or feelings. That sort of thing is trivial to him. $50 million on a campaign is not bringing down West or Kardashian brand. That kind of expenditure doesn’t mean that much. Polls and voting are different. I don’t think there’s really any sort of support for a Kanye presidency. I really like Kanye, but I don’t think there’s support. I do have some empathy and sympathy for him, what he’s feeling, it seems like it’s pain in some way, but I don’t know what it is.”
