It’s been less than 24 hours since Kanye West was forcibly put under psychiatric evaluation after his personal trainer called paramedics with concerns regarding the rapper’s erratic behavior and lack of sleep. And we’re now learning more about what led up to Kanye’s reported mental breakdown.
Unlike wife Kim Kardashian who stayed behind to be with her husband, Kanye’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner attended the Angel Ball gala and spoke with Extra about the rapper cancelling his Saint Pablo tour. The quick chat was before news of Kanye’s hospitalized broke out, but still offers insight to Kanye’s state of mind prior to being put under psychiatric evaluation.
“He’s exhausted, he’s just really tired. He’s had a grueling tour and it’s been a grind so he just needs some rest,” the Kardashian matriarch told Extra Monday night. Jenner’s brief statement matches that of reports that Kanye was seen by a doctor for severe sleep deprivation.
