Kanye West is living apart from his wife, Kim Kardashian, and their two kids after being hospitalized, a source tells Us Weekly. According to the insider, the “Famous” rapper is staying at a rental house while receiving outpatient treatment.
As previously reported by Us, West, 39, was hospitalized on November 21 for extreme exhaustion, following a string of onstage concert rants and subsequent cancellation of his entire Saint Pablo Tour. The rapper spent more than a week at UCLA Medical Center before being released on Wednesday, November 30.
"Kim is being very protective and doesn't want Kanye around the kids right now," the source tells Us, while a second source maintains that Kardashian isn't necessarily keeping the kids from West, but that it's a "valid concern."
A source close to the MC, meanwhile, denies that West is living at a separate residence and says he is recuperating at home with his wife and kids.
Us exclusively revealed that Kardashian’s Paris October 3 robbery and West’s work overload has taken a serious toll on Kimye’s marriage.
“It’s just been hell for them,” a source told Us Weekly in the new issue, on newsstands now, of Kimye’s marital issues prior to West’s hospitalization. “Kanye’s behavior took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”
After being released from the hospital, West celebrated their son Saint’s first birthday, as well as his homecoming, with Kardashian her famous siblings during a low-key celebration.
The famous clan has yet to address West's hospitalization, aside from sister Kendall Jenner, who shared with Entertainment Tonight that "everyone is doing OK, just praying."
