Kim Kardashian was seen filming her reality TV series less than 24 hours after her husband Kanye West's recent Twitter collapse – she is criticized for doing nothing to help him with his bipolar disorder.
The 39-year-old was accompanied by her sister Khloe and Khloe's ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson in Malibu on Wednesday when the trio was shadowed by a Keeping Up With The Kardashians film team.
It came the same day when the mother of four children publicly addressed her husband's bipolar struggle with an Instagram statement saying, "Your family is powerless."
Kanye, who is struggling with bipolar disorder, is currently on his ranch in Wyoming and was seen with friends on Wednesday visiting a Walmart.
The 43-year-old rapper had a turbulent week that began during his presidential rally in South Carolina, in which he revealed that he and Kim had considered aborting their now seven-year-old daughter North.
What followed was a series of sprawling and since then deleted tweets, revealing that he had "tried to divorce Kim" and accused her of trying to "lock him up".
Shortly after posting, he deleted all tweets about his wife and family.

A source told TMZ on Thursday that Kim did not want her reality TV series to document one of Kanye's bipolar episodes. Kim also forbade the show to profile their children during this time if they see them later.
The series has recently been interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In her Instagram statement, Kim said she was "powerless", but described her husband as "brilliant but complicated".
"Those who understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor," she wrote.
“I understand that Kanye is criticized because he is a public figure and his actions can sometimes generate strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who, in addition to the pressure to be an artist and a black man, has experienced the painful loss of his mother and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that are exacerbated by his bipolar disorder.
"Those close to Kanye know his heart and sometimes don't understand his words with his intentions."
Kim did not mention Kanye's divorce comments in her statement.
Insiders say the couple had been thinking about a divorce on Twitter weeks before their breakdown.
A source told People magazine that Kim and Kanye even spoke about the "friendliest and loving parenting situation" for their four children.
"There has been enough communication in both the past few days and the weeks before to determine that both sides feel that the marriage is over," said the source.
During Wednesday's shooting, Kim was seen pointing out something to her sister Khloe
Kim's sighting in Malibu occurred the same day when the mother of four publicly addressed her husband's bipolar struggle with an Instagram statement saying, "Your family is powerless."

In her Instagram statement, Kim said she was "powerless" about Kanye's bipolar struggle. Kim and her family were criticized this week for doing nothing more to help Kanye with his Twitter breakdown
Kanye and Kim share the daughters North (7) and Chicago (2) as well as the sons Saint (4) and Psalm (14 months).
Though the couple have been talking about division for weeks, an insider described Kanye's recent Twitter expedition announcing his divorce plan as evidence that the rapper had "taken a different route".
& # 39; Kanye took a different path. Both in terms of the decision to announce his presidential bid, as well as how he expresses himself and what he wants to say, ”said the source.
“They have work to do, as parents and spouses, who want to end this phase of their relationship. Kanye knows all of this and everything that is happening is like a terrible side view of the real problems. & # 39;
The source added that Kanye has some needs – presumably related to his mental health – that are "urgent" to be met.
The insider also claimed that there had been "multiple attempts" to speak to the star, but "nothing has been successful".
The source added that Kim was a "wild protector" and would not pretend that Kanye's actions had no "lasting influence". They also claimed that the couple was "done" and that work had to be done to "get everyone healthy" with their lives.
While Kanye cleared his tweets about wanting to divorce Kim, neither has spoken out publicly about the claims.
DailyMail.com asked their representatives for a comment.

Kanye tweeted late Tuesday that he's been trying to divorce Kim since she met his rapper colleague Meek Mill in a hotel to talk about prison reform – a thing Kim has been campaigning for lately
The reality star just said, "His words sometimes don't match his intentions" after claiming that he has "been trying to divorce her" since she met his rapper colleague Meek Mill in a hotel.
During his Twitter outbreak, Kanye said Kim was "out of line" to meet Meek Mill to talk about "prison reform" and blew up her mother Kris Jenner as "Kris Jong-Un".
Kanye repeatedly claimed this week that Kim had tried to get a doctor to jail him for fighting bipolar
Kim shared three pages of her Instagram story and wrote, "Those who understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor."
She said to her 180 million followers, "I understand that Kanye is criticized because he is a public figure and his actions can sometimes generate strong opinions and emotions.
“He is a brilliant but complicated person who, in addition to the pressure to be an artist and black man, has experienced the painful loss of his mother and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that his bipolar disorder increases.
“Those who are close to Kanye know his heart and sometimes understand his words, do not agree with his intentions.
“As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.
“I have never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy with regard to his health. But today I feel like I should comment on the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
“People who are not aware of this experience or are far away can be judgmental and do not understand that the individual has to provide help no matter how hard family and friends make an effort.
“Life with bipolar disorder does not reduce or invalidate your dreams and creative ideas, no matter how big or unreachable they may feel to some. It's part of his genius and as we've all seen, many of his big dreams have come true. & # 39;

Her testimony came after Kanye tweeted late Tuesday that he had been trying to divorce Kim since she met his rapper Meek Mill in a hotel to talk about prison reform – a thing Kim advocated has started lately.
His shock divorce suit comes after sources allege that Kim and Kanye are already "separated" and "pierced each other's throats" during the ban.
It had previously been claimed that the couple had lived on opposite sides of their home at some point during the Coronavirus lock.
During his Twitter rant, Kanye also targeted his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, calling her "Kris Jong-un" and accusing both Kris and Kim of "white domination".
He also reiterated a previous claim that his wife and mother-in-law "tried to fly with two doctors" to take him to the hospital out of concern for his well-being after his bizarre entry into the 2020 presidential race.
West had only claimed 24 hours earlier that Kim tried to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to imprison me, like in the movie Get Out, after he was worried at the campaign event. This was the first time since his announcement on July 4 that he would enter the 2020 race.
"Kris and Kim made a statement without my consent … a woman shouldn't do that," Kanye said after reports that the Kardashians were angry with his latest antics.
Kanye also shared his lyrics with mother-in-law Kris Jenner, in which he threatened to go to war if she did not answer his calls.
The first message was, "This ye, are you ready to talk now or are you still avoiding my call?", While the second, released a day later, said, "This ye, do you want to talk or go to war? ".
He gave the screenshot a title: "White supremacy at the highest level."
This picture of himself with his children was among West's tweets. Along with this picture, he wrote that "West children will never play Playboy" when he met his mother-in-law Kris. Both Kim and her youngest sister Kylie have appeared in Playboy
