On Monday, after the cops were called to fitness trainer Harley Pasternak’s house, rap artist Kanye West was handcuffed inside an ambulance and taken to the UCLA Medical Center. Since his attempted attack on a fitness center employee, West has not been quite himself. Currently, he is being tested for mental disorders and undergoing therapy at the health clinic.
Everything went downhill after his San Pablo World Tour, during which he ranted extensively to his audience and left the stage, all within a half hours’ time. But his mental health was only under speculation at that time. Now it appears everyone’s fears were well-founded.
West was still in a frenzied state of mind when he arrived at the hospital, until paramedics were finally able to calm and control him. Since then, his wife Kim Kardashian West has been his greatest support, staying close by his side throughout the whole situation. She even canceled her plans for the Angel Ball in New York to give her husband first priority. After her own experience with the robbery in Paris, Kim is still anxious and struggling to recuperate herself.
So far, there is no established timeframe by which Kanye is expected to return to the stage. Live Nation said that his San Pablo World Tour will not proceed if his recovery time is too long. Some of the rap artist’s good friends claimed that he was only having a “nervous breakdown.”
One insider told People that West was just tired. “He’s continued responding to treatment, and soon he will be back to his old self.” He’s known for being a hard worker, which is believed to be a contribution to this so-called “nervous breakdown,” in addition to extreme sleep deprivation. Right now, West is in need of much rest and some time away from work. Kim Kardashian agreed with the doctor’s decision.
