Most people have an opinion about Kanye West and it probably goes one of two ways — either the devoted disciple or the heavy eyeroll variety. But no matter what your feelings are for Ye, what he’s going through now warrants at least a little sympathy. Right? Because not only was he taken out of his home and put under psychiatric care last week, it seems his health has been deteriorating for a while.
According to TMZ, Kanye’s paranoia and depression this week are issues he’s been dealing with for a long time. Their sources say it’s been “building for months” and goes way beyond the dehydration and exhaustion reasons cited for his hospitalization.
Kim is reportedly trying to get him home today to have him under the care of his own doctor, but it’s too soon to tell whether or not he’s able.
Us Weekly reported that Kim spent Thanksgiving in the hospital with Kanye and didn’t leave his side except to see their children.
“Kim has been keeping a very close watch on him and not letting people disturb him,” an insider told the mag. “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.”
Such a sad time for the couple. Here’s hoping North and Saint are doing OK in the wake of all this, but thankfully Kim has one of the greatest support systems around. Just like with Lamar, they were all there for him and Khloe. Say what you want about the Kardashians and Jenners but when one of them is in trouble, they drop everything and rally. We critique them for a lot of things, but never for their love and devotion to family.
