Big news for Kanye West: He checked out of the hospital and is now back home. But he’s not out of the woods just yet. Details inside…
Kanye didn’t get out of the hospital as soon as originally expected. Reportedly, doctors said he suffered a nervous breakdown and he required more time under a doctor’s care.
As of this afternoon, however, the “Fade” rapper checked out of UCLA Medical Center and is currently back home.
TMZ reports he checked out and is back home with his wife and kids hile under the care of wife Kim and his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam, the person who called 911 the day Kanye was admitted.
Reportedly, his nervous breakdown was bigger than just sleep deprivation and exhaustion. As we pointed out previously, the anniversary of his mother Donda West’s death was about a week ago. Now we’re learning the paranoid and erratic behavior was brought on by Kanye dealing with the tough anniversary.
As for what Kanye was doing while laid up in the hospital throughout the Thanksgiving Holiday: He was attempting to mix new beats and work on his fashion like, if you believe Us Weekly’s sources.
“Kanye keeps wanting to work. He requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed,” a source told the magazine. “And he has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines. He continues to want to work and Kim has to keep telling him to rest.”
Well, he did make one of the biggest hits of his career right after he got out of the hospital after a car crash almost 15 years ago….with his mouth wired shut.
By the way, some sources say Kanye and wife Kim Kardashian West were fighting before his reported nervous breakdown. Us Weekly claims via a source:
“It’s just been hell for them.”
While the reality star struggled to feel safe again, West, 39, returned to his 63-date Saint Pablo tour. But Kardashian, normally a backstage fixture, was too anxious to tag along. “The trauma of the incident made her more hesitant to do things,” explains the source. “Of course it strained their relationship, because she hadn’t seen him.”
When he was home at their 11,000-square-foot Bel Air spread with kids North, 3, and Saint, 12 months, West’s workaholic tendencies got the best of him. “He would be up all night ranting about things,” says a source close to the 21-time Grammy winner. “They were fighting because he was impossible to live with.”
He may want to take it easy though. Sources report he needs ongoing psychological and medical treatment.
