Spin, perhaps? Although sources said a few days ago that rapper/designer Kanye West was improving, new reports say West is suffering from more than exhaustion and sleep deprivation and and will remain in a Los Angeles hospital for several more days.
TMZ.com says that temporary psychosic that the rapper experienced is a symptom of more significant issues, and that his insurance company will likely pay for the 21 cancelled dates of the St. Pablo tour due to his illness.
Earlier in the week, a source told ET the rapper is “doing much better” after being hospitalized on Monday.
“He just needed some rest,” the source says of Kanye. “[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great.”
After suffering what being described as “a mental breakdown” – as of this report – West, 39, is still hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center. As we reported, before being taken by authorities to the hospital, the “Jesus Walks” rapper had been getting attention for his bizarre behavior at his shows in California and the one in Sacramento in particular, before abruptly canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour on Monday.
“It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke,” the source previously told ET. “There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while.”
According to a source, Kim Kardashian West was “terrified” when she heard the news of Kanye’s hospitalization. She was in New York City to attend the Angel Ball, but quickly flew back to Los Angeles and straight to the hospital to see Kanye.
“She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side,” the source said. “There was no question about her staying in NYC. She had to be with him last night.”
Meanwhile, the Kardashians are showing their full support for Kanye. Kourtney Kardashian sported Yeezy sweat pants flying back to Los Angeles from NYC on Tuesday, in a clear sign of support for her brother-in-law.
ET spoke to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, at the Angel Ball on Monday, when she said she thought Kanye was “exhausted.”
“I think he’s exhausted. Just really tired,” Jenner said. “It’s a grueling tour.”
