He had to spend Thanksgiving away from home, but as of today, there’s good news for Kanye West: He is out the hospital after over a week of being treated for his mental breakdown.
TMZ and E! News have confirmed West is at home with Kim Kardashian and their kids. We’re told he left the hospital under the care of Kim, and his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam … who called 911 the day Kanye was admitted.
West suffered what’s being called by people close to him, a “nervous breakdown,” triggered in large part by the anniversary of his mother’s funeral.
Even though Kanye’s home, sources say he’s is not out of the woods … he needs ongoing psychological and medical treatment.
Eonline.com has more details:
His wife of two years, Kim Kardashian, was with West at the hospital Tuesday morning, the source said. The reality star had been in New York City Monday night to make her first public appearance at the Angel Ball charity function since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in early October.However, upon West’s hospitalization, the mother of two turned around and headed back to Los Angeles without making any such appearance.
According to a second source, the star’s mounting exhaustion is to blame on his“workaholic” personality. He has been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and his adidas line. Balancing his projects and the demands of his tour every night has been a challenge for the star.
Being on the road and away from his young children and wife—particularly after the traumatic robbery in Paris—has also been challenging. As the source noted, all the time spent away from his family has been a stress on West as he considers them the most important. Earlier this week, another source told E! News that the rapper was not being held “against his will” in the hospital. Rather, he wasn’t quite ready to leave just yet.
“Kanye is the kind of person if he gets released and isn’t mentally ready he will go back to his old ways and push himself over the limit again,” the insider explained. “He needs to keep up with counseling even though he has an intense work schedule. He is just really drained and still weak. He isn’t himself.” X17 broke the news of Kanye’s release.
