Kanye West Hospitalized After Psychotic Breakdown: Is He ‘Off His Lexapro?’

Kanye West is apparently “spiraling out of control.” The rapper was allegedly “hospitalized for his own safety after a psychotic breakdown.” Is West “off his Lexapro?”

Kanye West has canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour and has just been placed under observation at a Los Angeles area hospital.

Sources close to the rapper told Daily Mail that West’s “psychotic breakdown” was induced by problems with his marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian, paranoia over his rift with Jay Z and his intense jealousy of his wife Beyonce’s success.

Kim Kardashian, who has been living a low-key life out of the spotlight ever since her Paris robbery on October 3, was scheduled to appear at an event this evening, but is now nowhere to be seen after news broke about her husband’s shocking hospitalization.

Kim jetted out of Los Angeles on Monday morning without her husband. She was due to make an appearance at Denise Rich’s Angel Ball to celebrate 20 years of funding life-saving cancer research.

Kardashian’s siblings Rob, Kourtney, and Khloe, as well as their mother Kris Jenner, were all in attendance at the event this evening to honor their late father and husband, Robert Kardashian, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003.

According to NBC News, Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call around 1:20 p.m. local time. For West’s own health and safety, it was decided that he would be hospitalized.

Earlier today Live Nation, the rapper’s concert promoter, announced that he would be canceling the remaining 22 gigs left on his Saint Pablo Tour. No reason was given.

The tour cancellation announcement came just two days after Kanye West’s most recent concert rant. The 39-year-old musician walked off stage 30 minutes into his show after going off on an incoherent political and personal rant.

Kanye West took jabs at Hillary Clinton, supposed friends Jay Z and Beyonce, and Mark Zuckerberg in the bizarre outburst this past weekend.

“You don’t like that. Guess what? Y’all need the vibes. I was hurt. Feelings matter, bro. The way motherf****** put money up so high. Popularity. Radio spins. Feelings matter, bro.

“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton. It’s a new world. Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way, and they showed you how they felt… It’s a new world Barack. It’s a new world Jay Z.

“Get ready to have a field day press ’cause the show’s over.”

Kim Kardashian is allegedly fed up with Kanye’s crazy antics. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was not thrilled that Kanye was leaving her for the tour again in the first place. Kardashian had wanted West’s support and company following her traumatizing attack in Paris.

“Kim is fed up. They’ve been bickering constantly – she didn’t want Kanye to do the tour in the first place. She wanted him by her side as she recovered from her traumatic robbery in Paris.

“She lost days with him while he’s touring and then he made a rash decision to end the concert after ten minutes and go on a rant.

“He had a psychotic break. Kanye is very hot tempered and he’s very reactionary. A lot of times, he speaks before he thinks and he’s very sensitive.”

A friend close to the family told the New York Post that everyone fears he is surrounded by crazy people and spiraling out of control.

“There are fears he is having a nervous breakdown. He’s surrounded by all these crazy people, but there’s nobody he listens to or who can rein him in.

“He’s a mad genius, and he’s spiraling further and further out of control. Basically everything crazy he does is ‘art,’ so he is becoming more and more unpredictable.”

Another source told Us Weekly that the rapper has been overworked and is suffering from exhaustion.

“He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line.

“He’s a notorious workaholic… so balancing both that work — which is extremely important to him – and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out. All the time spent away from his family has been a stress on him, as well. They are the most important to him.

“Obviously he’s a professional and wants to give his fans a great experience, and I think his gut was telling him not to extend the tour through the end of the year, but he decided to push through. He doesn’t want to give his fans anything less than the best.”

Kanye West has been called “crazy in the past.” The rapper even addressed the topic on his new album The Life of Pablo in the song “FML”

“See, before I let you go. One last thing I need to let you know.

“You ain’t never seen nothing crazier than. This ni**a when he off his Lexapro.”

Kanye West recently went and deleted all of his previous photos from his Instagram profile. The rapper replaced them with a bizarre collection of 99 images that were taken from old and current Maison Margiela lookbooks, according to Billboard.

The photos are all pretty poor quality and West did not comment alongside any of the photographs.

Apparently West hasn’t learned much from his social media queen wife, Kim Kardashian. She probably would not approve of these blurry Instagram photos.
