Kanye West spent Thanksgiving week inside a hospital while being treated by some of Los Angeles’ finest doctors.
The rapper was hospitalized and taken to the UCLA Medial Center Monday, November 21, after acting “erratically” while at his personal trainer’s home in LA. West’s team initially explained that Ye’s hospitalization was simply due to exhaustion, but it’s being reported that West’s mental state was, indeed, in jeopardy.
The rapper is currently under doctors’ care and sources are suggesting that Ye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has not left her husband’s side. Apparently, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who shares two children with Ye, North, 3, and Saint, 11 months, has tended to her hubby’s every need and has been extremely nurturing.
“Kim wouldn’t leave his side except to see the kids,” a source tells Us Weekly. “She’s been at the hospital all the time. Kim has been keeping a very close watch on him and not letting people disturb him. All kinds of people have called and sent flowers, but she’s being very careful about not letting him get wound up and making sure he rests and recovers.”
This is a big step for Kim, who has been down and out since being robbed a gunpoint in Paris back in October.
Ye’s medical emergency came after a week of bizarre behavior, including shutting down a concert in Sacramento after only performing two songs, engaging in a controversial Donald Trump rant and canceling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour.
As for the tour, HipHollywood has learned exclusively that Kanye’s cancellation could lead to a massive insurance payout.
A source tells us that Kanye cold receive $70 million to cover all the costs associated with the cancellation. That, however, has drawn people to wonder if Ye is exaggerating his illness for the sake of a major paycheck.
According to reports, the 39-year-old will hopefully be sent home today.
