Reports are surfacing about the status of Kanye West health after being transported to a Los Angeles hospital yesterday. TMZ is reporting that West personal doctor called 911 because he was suffering from “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration” and placed under 5150 psychiatric care.
Doctor Michael Farzam reportedly said that West tried to assault a staff member in the gym where he was working out. Protocol for 5150 psychiatric care requires a patient to be handcuffed to a stretcher durring transport to a medical facility. Kim Kardashian was not in LA at the time of Kanye’s hospitalization. She was in New York with her mother at a memorial event honoring her father but quickly rushed out west to be by her husband side.
Many are speculating what might have sparked the mental break down of Kanye West but November 10th marked the 8th anniversary of the passing of his mother Donda West. It has been said that Kanye blames himself for the sudden passing of his mother that died shortly after having cosmetic surgery that he paid for. In addition to this Kanye was in the middle of a twenty plus city tour that could have easily contributed to his recent erratic behavior and health issues.
Mental health is a major issue and we hope Kanye gets well soon. #PrayforKanye
