Kanye West is the “most kind, loving human being”, according to reality star Caitlyn Jenner.
Jenner’s comments come after West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, opened up about his bipolar diagnosis during an apparent campaign to become US president.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain, Jenner said that West had been “supportive” of her over the last few years.
“I hope for the best for him, he’s a really good guy,” she added.
“He has been the most kind, loving human being and so good to me throughout the years and especially going through everything I have been through in the last five years.
“He has been such a good friend.”
Jenner was previously married to Kardashian West’s mother, Kris Jenner.
