Kanye West is reported to be in much worse condition than the ‘temporary psychosis’ initially suggested.
The sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration that the star was suffering was thought to be the extent of the problem, but TMZ suggests that the rapper’s problems ‘go deeper’.
The 39-year-old was rushed to UCLA Medical Center, joined by wife Kim Kardashian on Monday following a reported breakdown.
Kanye’s family thought he would be able to spend Thanksgiving at home with his family. but it does not look probable due to his ‘bad mental state’.
The father-of-two has cancelled 21 Saint Pablo Tour concerts across the US, but his insurance is likely to cover him for the lost profits due to illness.
Kim left his bedside for the first time last night, but planned to return first thing this morning to spend the American holiday with him.
West’s hospitalisation comes after he controversially cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a lengthy tirade against Beyonce, claiming that her and Jay Z had the means to have him killed. He also caused controversy when he admitted that he ‘would have voted for Donald Trump’.
A source told People:
The anniversary of his mom’s death is an aspect of what’s going on in that it’s added emotional stress.
This time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him.
Yeezy is reported to be ‘doing much better’ and ‘starting to feel more like himself’.
Our thoughts are with the West family and we hope he is getting the help and support he needs during this difficult period.
