Kim Kardashian's Robbery May Have Allegedly Triggered Kanye West's 'Breakdown'
Last week news broke that Kanye West had been hospitalised for mental health reasons. The musician has often been outspoken when it comes to his psyche, and whether you like him or not, it's important at this time to refrain from making jokes about his current troubles.
West had to cancel upcoming dates on his tour after being taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles after a 'disturbance call' for 'medical aid', with a number of sources suggesting he has undergone 'psychiatric evaluation'.
The lead up to the 'breakdown' didn't seem good for Kanye, going off on rants regarding his health following an incident in Paris, where his wife Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint.
A source told US Weekly that ever since Paris Fashion Week the rapper had reportedly not been in a good state of mind.
"He's been shaken up ever since the robbery in Paris," the source said. "It did a number on him as much as Kim. The mere thought that anything could happen to her sent him in a tailspin. He wasn't sleeping and he was having nightmares about it."
While the information surrounding Kanye's hospitalisation still remains up in the air, adding two and two together does lead one to believe that his wife's life-threatening ordeal and subsequent absence from his shows had a detrimental effect on his mind.
"He really couldn't do his shows without her around," the source continued. "That's what made him worse. He didn't want to be away from her. [The robbery] was just as hard for him, but he tried to keep going. He would never have cancelled the tour unless things were bad.
"The robbery triggered everything. Kim is his family and the only family he really has now. They took him in and embraced him. So seeing Kim traumatised did a major number on him."
Kim Kardashian has reportedly stayed close by her husband during his time of need, in the hope that he will soon be nursed back to a healthy state and hopefully continue his tour.
