“Kanye will be in the hospital for Thanksgiving and isn’t leaving,” the insider tells Us, adding that his wife “has barely left his side.”
“Kim has been very concerned and supportive,” the source adds. “Seeing Kanye like this is scary for her.” The reality star was scheduled to make her first public appearance since her robbery at the Angel Ball in New York on Monday, but dropped everything and returned to Los Angeles after learning of her husband’s condition.
As previously reported, West, 39, was admitted to UCLA Medical Center on Monday, November 21, after authorities were called to his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home after the rapper began behaving erratically.
Although the 911 call from the incident referred to West’s condition as a “psychiatric emergency,” the source confirms to Us that West is not under a 5150 hold, which is used to involuntarily admit patients to hospitals for mental illness.
West’s hospitalization, which insiders said was for exhaustion and extreme stress, came shortly after his team announced the cancellation of the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour. Another source told Us that Kardashian — who is still recovering from her terrifying armed robbery on October 3 – is “very worried” about the Waves rapper’s condition.
Yet another source told Us that West had particularly been on edge following his wife’s scary Paris encounter. “[Kanye] took on a lot and the Paris incident sort of split up the family because he hasn’t been able to spend hardly any time with Kim.”
“She was supposed to be on a lot of the tour dates with him and because of what happened with [her Paris] robbery, she wasn’t feeling up for going to all these different tour dates,” another source said. “So [Kanye] hasn’t had his family, his support system, with him. Kim is very worried.”
The rapper’s health scare comes after several incidents of odd behavior on his Saint Pablo tour. During a show in Sacramento on Saturday, November 19, he performed three songs and then went on a rant against Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton and the media before ending the concert after just 30 minutes. He also told fans during a concert that he would have voted for Donald Trump, and puzzled followers by posting 99 blurry Instagram fashion photos to his social media account on Sunday.
