Kanye West is making progress.
Sources tell Entertainment Tonight that the rapper is ‘doing much better’ after being hospitalized on Monday. Kim Kardashian West is said to be by his side as he rests.
“He just needed some rest,” the source says of Kanye. “[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great.”
Kanye remains hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center where he continues to recover from what a source called “a mental breakdown.” Prior to the hospitalization, Kanye had been making headlines for erratic behavior at his latest shows, before abruptly canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour on Monday.
“It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke,” the source previously told ET. “There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while.”
According to our source, 36-year-old Kim was “terrified”when she heard the news of Kanye’s hospitalization. Kim was in New York City to attend the Angel Ball, but quickly flew back to Los Angeles and straight to the hospital to see Kanye.
“She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side,” the source said. “There was no question about her staying in NYC. She had to be with him last night.”
Meanwhile, the Kardashians are showing their full support for Kanye. Kourtney Kardashian sported Yeezy sweat pants flying back to Los Angeles from NYC on Tuesday, in a clear sign of support for her brother-in-law.
ET spoke to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, at the Angel Ball on Monday, when she said she thought Kanye was “exhausted.”
“I think he’s exhausted. Just really tired,” Jenner said. “It’s a grueling tour.”
We’re just curious as to how Kanye is going to act when he comes out of this.
