Kim Kardashian is said to be extremely worried about her husband Kanye West after he was hospitalized this week and allegedly placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold at UCLA Medical Hospital. According to Us Weekly, the rapper was acting “erratically” at the home of this trainer, Harley Pasternak, and paramedics were called. Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney and rushed to the hospital.
Kanye West’s episode is said to have been caused by sleep deprivation and exhaustion and came just days after the rapper went on a rant slamming Hillary Clinton, Jay Z, and Beyonce during his concert in Sacramento. Sources told the website that lack of sleep and working hard is what lead Kanye to his breaking point.
“When you’re not sleeping, going at that level, pushing yourself, don’t have your family with you, the combination of that is really scary.”
However, fans have seen Kanye West go on wild rants in the past, and many have questioned his mental health before his most recent scare. Some fans have taken to social media to reveal their thoughts on Kanye’s hospitalization, saying that the rapper needs professional help for his issues. TMZ reports that West may currently be under a 5150 hold at the hospital after he tried to assault a member of the staff at the gym.
Hollywood Life reveals that a 5150 hold means that a physician authorizes a patient to be held involuntarily if they find them to have a mental disorder that may be dangerous to themselves or others.
Meanwhile, Kanye West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has yet to break her silence on her husband’s welfare. Kim is currently still dealing with the aftermath of being robbed and gunpoint in Paris on October 3. The mother of two has not spoken about the incident and has yet to return to social media. Sources reveal that dealing with the fallout from the robbery has been hard for both Kim and Kanye.
“The robbery caused so much stress for this family. [Kanye] took on a lot and the Paris incident sort of split up the family because he hasn’t been able to spend hardly any time with Kim.”
The lack of time with his family could be one of the reasons that Kanye West ended up in the hospital. Kim Kardashian is said to be very worried about her husband and has been keeping her distance with him on tour because of the robbery.
“She was supposed to be on a lot of the tour dates with him and because of what happened with [her Paris] robbery, she wasn’t feeling up for going to all these different tour dates. So [Kanye] hasn’t had his family, his support system, with him. Kim is very worried.”
People Magazine reports that Kardashian was set to make her first public appearance since the robbery at the Angel Ball on Monday, the same day as Kanye West’s breakdown. Kim was a no-show at the ball, which honored her late father, Robert Kardashian, but her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian along with their mother, Kris Jenner, were all in attendance at the event.
Kim was in New York on Sunday night with the intention of attending the ball, but she quickly flew back to L.A. on Monday evening after the news broke that Kanye had been hospitalized.
The Kardashian/Jenner family did donate $250,000 to the Angel Foundation, which aids in cancer research.
“We just wanted to do a little something that hopefully will be a start of… a continuous donation,” Kris Jenner revealed as she honored her former husband, Robert Kardashian Sr.
