After more than a week of treatment for his mental meltdown, Kanye West is back at home with his wife and kids, TMZ reports. He reportedly checked out of the hospital under the care of wife Kim Kardashian and personal physician Dr. Michael Farzam, the same one who made the 911 call that had Yeezy admitted.
According to the celebrity news site, the Chicago rapper had a “nervous breakdown” triggered in part by the anniversary of his mother Donda’s death back in November 2007. Her funeral was held November 20, which is the exact same day he cancelled his show at the L.A. Forum. He cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour the following day and according to reports, suffered the breakdown hours later.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Kanye’s stepbrother Hal Carmichael– whose mother Cheryl was married to Kanye’s father Ray – said Ye is “fearing for his life.
“No one thought Paris would happen in a million years and now he’s seen it happen to Kim, it’s traumatizing,” Carmichael said. “Ye is tired, he’s hurt, he feels betrayed and he’s probably feeling depressed. I think Kanye got to a point when he was fearing for his life and for his family’s safety because of what went down in Paris – I think it took a toll on him. He ends up walking about worrying and thinking, who’s going to do what to me?”
West reportedly became paranoid when he was admitted to UCLA “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration” and refused to let doctors touch him. After being sedated and treated by doctors and health professionals, he has now been released.
