The rapper was reportedly hospitalised “for his own health and safety” on Monday (November 21) after suffering from “severe sleep deprivation”. It has since been reported that West is “doing much better”.
West’s relationship with his former mentor and friend has appeared strained recently. At a concert in Sacramento last week he cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a rant about Beyoncé and Jay Z. During the rant, he urged Jay to call him and claimed that his fellow rapper has the means to have him killed.
The Sun now reports that Beyoncé is “urging Jay to let bygones be bygones, and Jay is coming round to the idea and fast as he sees Kanye is in trouble. No matter what has happened between them, Kanye has always been Jay’s little bro and Jay has always called him his ‘familia’.”
A source reportedly told the paper: “When Kanye’s mother Donda died, it was Bey and Jay that Kanye turned to. They were his number one comforters, with Beyoncé even playing Connect 4 with him to take his mind off things. They’re now planning to reach out to Kanye quietly and in private to avoid any media storm but just to let him know they are there for him.”
Lady Gaga, Pusha T, John Legend and Chance The Rapper are among the stars sending his best wishes to West following the news. Legend said he was “concerned” about the ‘Life of Pablo’ artist, while Chance sent “a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West”. Pusha T thanked West for the “endless opportunities you have brought to me”.
West recently caused controversy when he admitted that he “would have voted for Donald Trump”.
