Kanye West’s hospitalization may end sooner than expected following the American rapper’s controversial mental breakdown.
As previously reported by Metro, West may be leaving the UCLA Medical Centre on Monday, though it’s “too early to know” when he’ll be able to recover from his condition. Before Kanye’s breakdown, he was seen going on a long tirade about Beyonce and Jay-Z.
“Beyonce … I was hurt, because I heard you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video Of The Year, over me and over Hotline Bling.
“In my opinion … now don’t go trying to diss Beyonce; she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal,’ he went on.
“But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are, just to win. F*** winning. F*** looking cool. F*** looking cool. F*** being cool. F*** all that!”
Kanye then said that his life might be in danger for speaking his mind, saying that Jay-Z has “killers” to do it for him.
“I’ve been sent here to give you all my truth, even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career….
“Jay Z! Call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me…. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”
The “Famous” rapper then cut his Sacramento gig short, leaving his fans confused and disappointed. Before long, a rep for West announced that the remaining dates on the Saint Pablo tour have been cancelled.
TMZ reports that Kanye West’s “paranoid and profoundly depressed” and that he’s been exhibiting these symptoms for a long time, according to a source close to West and Kim Kardashian.
Sources claim that Kanye was convinced people, including doctors, were out to get him as soon as he was taken to the hospital. His paranoia was such that he refused to allow doctors to lay a hand on him. His paranoia were said to have been building up for months.
Kim Kardashian has stayed by her husband’s bedside during his hospitalization. A source said that Kardashian’s constant care has been instrumental in nursing West back to health.
“She is just holding things down like Kanye did for her when she needed support.
“Kim is doing much better and is strong. This shall pass she believes.
“Their time together was just about support. Kanye will be ok. He has a good set of doctors and the main thing is he wants to get through this.”

For the meantime, Kanye West’s doctor has prohibited the rapper from having access to a phone or computer while he’s staying at the hospital. Considering West’s numerous rants on Twitter in the past, many would agree that the doctor made the right call.
As to the millions of dollars Kanye West may lose following the cancellation of the remaining dates in his Saint Pablo tour, the 39-year-old rapper would probably get them all back on the grounds of his medical condition.

Kanye West has received a lot of support and encouragement from his fellow celebrities. John Legend, a close friend of West, told CBS that he accompanied Kim Kardashian before the rapper was taken to the hospital. He said that he was “concerned” by what he saw.
“Hopefully he’s getting some rest and some time to figure things out,” he added.
Other celebrities who sent West their words of support include Janelle Monae, Marlon Wayans, Cheryl, and Emile Hirsch.

Chance the Rapper also showed his support to Kanye during his performance on Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
“‘I want to extend a special prayer to my big brother Kanye West,’ he declared. ‘I know there’s a lot of weird folks out there, but you already know that I’m a hundred grand.’
“I want to just extend this prayer and extend this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this. Happy Thanksgiving.”
