Kanye West has launched into a tirade against celebrity personal trainer Harley Pasternak after he threatened to commit the rapper to a mental hospital.

Ye has shared private messages between himself and a contact known as 'Harley' on Twitter.

The texts showed 'Harley' telling the rapper to cooperate or else he will send him back to hospital so he can stay in 'zombieland' forever.


Harley's text reads: "I'm going to help you one of a couple ways... First, you and I sit down and have an loving and open conversation, but you don't use cuss words, and everything 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."

He then added: "Second option, 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."

West, who is known legally as Ye, then followed up the tweet with pictures of the personal trainer as he unleashed on Pasternak.


"What should be obvious by now is that I was raised to stand for my truth regardless of the consequences," West said on Twitter.

"So I will say this again: I was mentally misdiagnosed and nearly drugged out of my mind to make me a manageable well behaved celebrity."



Kanye West was hospitalised back in 2016 after he started 'acting erratically' at Pasternak's home, according to the US Weekly and Page Six.

In a 2018 interview with Charlamagne tha God, West said he feared for his life during his eight day hospitalisation.

Pasternak told Newsweek last month that West 'appears that he's probably going through an episode right now'.

Shortly after West was banned from multiple social media platforms for antisemitic comments, Pasternak praised Twitter and Instagram as he feared the rapper would continue to spiral if 'people continue to give him a platform'.


Pasternak revealed that he was in contact with West the day prior, and told Newsweek that 'his communication [was] very incoherent'.

He added: "It doesn't forgive someone for being antisemitic. In fact, the lack of outrage over his tweet from people is very sad, regardless of whether he's mentally ill or not. It's not acceptable."

Ye has recently rejoined social media in the wake of his forced hiatus and revealed he is taking a vow of silence for the next 30 days.


That apparently does not include using social media, as the attack against his former trainer came shortly after.

He's also sworn off sex, watching porn and drinking during the cleanse.

UNILAD has reached out to Harley Pasternak for comment.
