Kanye West Went to the Hospital at His Will, Was Not Restrained

More details are emerging about why Kanye West was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation and a new report says “he went freely” to the hospital.

The 39-year-old rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Monday (November 21) after suffering from exhaustion following the cancellation of the remaining dates on the Saint Pablo tour.

“There was a small altercation at the gym but he was deemed medically stable and decided to seek medical help at his doctor’s request,” a source told People about what led to the hospitalization. “We’re super confident he’s going to pull through.”

“He is exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation,” the source added. “He went to the hospital at will under the advice of his physician. He’s fine.”

There were some reports that said Kanye was restrained upon arrival at the hospital, but the source says that is not true.

Kim Kardashian flew back to Los Angeles to be by Kanye‘s side after he was hospitalized.

Kim Kardashian's Robbery Contributed to Kanye West's 'Breakdown'

The terrifying gunpoint robbery that Kim Kardashian experienced last month is one of the things that contributed to Kanye West‘s “breakdown” this week.

The 36-year-old reality star was on her way to New York City to make her first appearance since the robbery when Kanye, 39, was taken to the hospital in Los Angeles for a psychiatric evaluation after he acted “erratically.”

“All those things contribute to his stress level, exhaustion and lack of sleep,” a source close to Kanye told People, referring to the robbery.

Kanye was taken to the UCLA Medical Center and Kim is by his side. She got right back on a plane after landing in the Big Apple on Monday (November 21).

“Of course he’s getting the support that he needs right now,” the source said. “Family and friends are around. Kim is being amazing. As are all of his friends and team and inner circle.”

We are sending our thoughts to Kanye and his family during this difficult time.

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.
