After he was kept in for ‘his own health and safety’, Kanye West has reportedly been released from hospital.
After being kept in for longer than expected to treat his ‘exhaustion and paranoia’, it is now reported that he is back home – as TMZ claims that West was released under the care of his wife, Kim Kardashian and his personal doctor. The ‘Yeezus’ star is set to continue to receive psychological and medical treatment from here.
West’s hospitalisation came after a dramatic few weeks. He cancelled the remainder of his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour, after a concert in Sacramento where he controversially cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a lengthy tirade against Beyonce, claiming that her husband and West’s former friend and collaborator Jay Z had the means to have him killed. The ‘Gold Digger’ rap veteran also caused controversy and split opinion when he admitted that he ‘would have voted for Donald Trump’.
Lady Gaga, Pusha T, John Legend and Chance The Rapper were among the stars sending his best wishes to West this week 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”.
Meanwhile, West’s latest album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ made it to number two in NME‘s albums of the year list for 2016.
