Kanye West released from hospital - report


The Yeezus star was admitted to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center for a mental evaluation on 21 November, 2016 after his allegedly erratic behaviour sparked concerns over his health, and following over a week of treatment, TMZ reports the musician went home on Wednesday.

Sources tell the news outlet Kanye is now under the care of his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam, at his family residence, surrounded by his wife Kim Kardashian and their two young children.

Although he is no longer under the supervision of doctors in the hospital, insiders claim his treatment is far from over. Apparently West, 39, will require ongoing outpatient psychological and medical care for an unspecified amount of time.

However, it appears he has lots of support in his recovery, as his wife Kim rarely left his side during his stay in UCLA Medical Center, and even celebrated America's Thanksgiving holiday last week  in hospital with Kanye.

Although the true nature of his illness has not been officially confirmed, sources suggest he suffered a psychiatric breakdown due to a mix of exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

His hospital admission took place hours after Kanye's representatives announced the cancellation of his Saint Pablo tour, following a string of erratic events, including a rant about friends Beyonce and Jay Z at a weekend concert.

Sources claim the rigorous schedule of his tour, the anniversary of his late mother Donda's funeral in November, 2016 and the stress over wife Kim's October, 2016 armed robbery ordeal in Paris all contributed to Kanye's breakdown.
