On November 21, Kanye voluntarily went to the UCLA Medical Center for evaluation after suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation, and the visit was under the consultation of the rapper’s physician. His doctor made the 911 call and the incident was deemed a medical emergency.
A source told E! yesterday that Kanye was doing better, and that his mental exhaustion had taken a toll. Exhaustion? Totally understandable. He canceled his Saint Pablo tour after his wife was robbed in her hotel room, and being on the road away from his family has taken a toll.
According to another source, Kanye wasn’t being held “against his will” in the hospital–he just wasn’t ready to leave.
“Kanye is the kind of person if he gets released and isn’t mentally ready he will go back to his old ways and push himself over the limit again,” the source explained. “He needs to keep up with counseling even though he has an intense work schedule. He is just really drained and still weak. He isn’t himself.”
