“I just feel so sorry for him,” she said.

Lewis was diagnosed as bipolar about 20 years go and has been open about her struggle in the years since.

“Part of the disorder is not wanting to tame the mania,” she said this week. “The high is so high and it feel great, but it’s dangerous.”

According to Lewis, some in West’s inner circle have proposed a meeting between the two, noting that she welcomes the opportunity.

“They are going to try to get me in a room with him when he gets back from Uganda,” she said. “And all I can tell everyone is that I will do my best.”
