Kanye West's Breakdown Triggered By Mom's Death
New information is coming out indicating the anniversary of Donda West's death may have triggered Kanye's breakdown.
On November 21, following a series of bizarre mid-concert rants and a complete cancellation of the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, the 39-year-old music icon was admitted to UCLA Medical Center for what was reportedly severe sleep deprivation.
While doctors haven't confirmed the cause of his "breakdown," paramedics on the scene called it a "psychiatric emergency" with reports that West was hallucinating and lashing out at paramedics.
Though nothing has been confirmed, sources close to the family claim West's mental state was pushed over the ledge by pressures from the tour, dealing with the fallout from Kim's robbery, a dangerous level of exhaustion and the stresses from running his business.
There may be one other reason for Kanye's meltdown, though, and it's absolutely heartbreaking.
Hours after canceling the tour, Kanye reportedly had his "breakdown" and was brought to the hospital.
Sources close to Kanye say the rapper has never really properly mourned Donda's death.
With the added pressures of everything going on with his family, it's entirely possible the anniversary of her death could have been the last trigger needed to send Kanye over the edge.
Donda died in 2007 after complications from plastic surgery. She was 58.
In 2015, Us Weekly reported Kanye still blames himself for the death of his mother because he was the one who paid for the surgery that led to her death.
He once told reporters,
If I had never moved to LA she'd be alive. I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kanye and the entire West family.
