Kanye West Reveals He Became Addicted to Painkillers After Liposuction Surgery in 2016

Kanye West is opening up about his breakdown that landed him in the hospital back in 2016.

The 40-year-old Yeezus rapper revealed during a TMZ Live broadcast on Tuesday (May 1) that he was “drugged the f–k out” while visiting President-elect Donald Trump back in December of 2016.

He explained that he was addicted to the painkillers prescribed after his liposuction surgery. He also started to take them more during the Life of Pablo tour, he admitted. The tour then ended early after he was hospitalized.

“I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all,” he told TMZ.

Kanye is not happy with the amount of medicine he was prescribed, and thinks it speaks to a larger issue in America.

    Kinda strange that a person whose mother died getting plastic surgery would go under the knife for liposuction. I think it had more to do with being part of the Kardashian family than trying to look good for his audience. It’s not like he was young LL Cool J.

    His precious mom died of shitty lipo.
    But I suppose this sort of thing is so normal in his new family, that even he got it done as if it was as simple as visiting a dentist. I’m sure Kim & co. know all the best backdoor lipo joints in LA. A man of his age & wealth doesn’t need lipo – he needs a trainer and visit his in-house gym.

    Ok so he got a lipo and it didn’t even work out and now he’s blaming his fat on the media and he’s probably gonna get another lipo soon. Pretty sure if he worked out he could get rid of his fat. if he was happy with his body he wouldn’t need to lose weight, if he was happy with his body he wouldn’t care about the media. At this point im sure he’s worried about his body because his whole family is obsessed with their bodies, don’t try blaming the media and the people, don’t say you wanted to “look” good for us, we don’t give a f about your body Kanye.

    So too lazy to pick up a book and now he admits he’s even too lazy to get off his fat azz and work out and took the cop out way out.
