Kanye West to 'spend Thanksgiving in hospital' following 'breakdown'
Kanye West will be joined by Kim Kardashian in hospital for Thanksgiving 2016 after the rap star suffered a "mental breakdown"
Kanye West will be spending Thanksgiving in hospital following his reported nervous breakdown that occurred earlier this week.
The 39-year-old rap star is currently checked in the UCLA Medical Center in the Westwood neighbourhood of Los Angeles after being admitted on Monday.
Wife Kim Kardashian, 36, will be joining the Bound 2 singer today (Thursday) as America celebrates the annual holiday – with reports he is responding well to treatment for sleep deprivation and dehydration.
“[Kanye] is starting to feel more like himself, and that he understands the importance of ‘resting and getting help.’ They are taking it day by day. He understands that getting help at the hospital was necessary,” a source told People magazine.
“Family and friends are around. Kim is being amazing. As are all of his friends and team and inner circle,” the source added.
Kim had been due to make her first post-gunpoint robbery appearance in New York City on Monday night but rushed back to LA when it was revealed Kanye had been handcuffed by police and taken to hospital amid reports he was “acting erratically”.
“Kim was terrified. She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side. There was no question about her staying in New York City. She had to be with him last night,” the source added to People.
Meanwhile, further sources told Entertainment Tonight that Kim and Kanye’s marriage has never been stronger following his breakdown.
“He just needed some rest,” a source said.
“[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great,” the source added.
While Perez Hilton reports another close friend has revealed more details of the circumstances surrounding Kanye’s illness which came just hours after he cancelled the remaining dates of his St Pablo world tour.
“It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke. There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while,” the source is quoted as saying.
Kanye will be thankful to have so many caring people around him.
