Kanye West is taking a much-needed timeout from social media.
“Kanye got to the point where he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy. This is why he deleted his account,” a source tells PEOPLE after the rapper, 41, cleared both his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Friday.
West, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, recently revealed he’s off his medication following his lengthy off-air, pro-Trump rant at Saturday Night Live and his controversial tweet about the 13th Amendment.
“When he gets into these Twitter rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. It’s like an obsession and it actually affects his life. He knows it’s not healthy, so he wants to take things down a notch,” the source says.
“Kim agreed it was time for him to take a social media break. She just wants him to focus on his family for a bit now,” the source says. “He can also focus better on his music and being creative when he avoids social media.”
