Is Kanye West Doing Okay? Source Speaks to His Current State
It was revealed that Kanye West has been hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation on Monday afternoon (November 21), and now a source is speaking out about what has been going on.
“He feels like he’s under spiritual attack, and has been for awhile. It’s not just the big things; it’s smaller, quieter things, internal things. You might think that it’s about Kim’s robbery, and while that didn’t help, that’s not what’s going on here. He’s dealing with a lot more subtle issues,” an insider told People of the 39-year-old entertainer.
“His mother died in November, so this time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him. He works through the pain every November,” the source added. Kanye‘s beloved mother Donda died at the age of 58 back in 2007. “He feels like it’s a trying time for his spirit, but that can be a good thing. He isn’t one to run away from these things. He leans in and listens, and comes away a stronger, better man. But it hurts him; his spirit is vexed. But that’s where growth comes from,” the source says.
“Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It’s exhausting, and it takes everything he’s got. He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit. It’s very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he’s not the ‘Ye that everyone knows,” the source continued.
Kanye had lots of celebrities sending him love after news broke that he was receiving medical attention.
