Kanye West’s Medication Linked to Breakdown
Now we are getting another explanation of what could have led to Kanye West having a mental breakdown. Medication, or lack thereof, may have also caused 'Ye to lose it.
West was initially admitted into the hospital due to “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.” According to TMZ, West has been suffering from psychological issues for a while. He has been taking medication to control it. Their sources claim 'Ye stopped taking his prescribed dosage, which caused all these problems. The reason he deviated from taking the proper amount is unknown.
Other speculation as to what led to West's issues include the traumatic robbery of his wife Kim Kardashian. “No one thought Paris would happen in a million years and now he’s seen it happen to Kim, it’s traumatizing,” West's step-brother Hal Carmichael said. “Ye is tired, he’s hurt, he feels betrayed and he’s probably feeling depressed.”
November being the anniversary month of his mother's death has also been cited as something that could have sent Yeezy into a downward spiral.
West was released from the hospital on Nov. 30, after eight days of receiving treatment. He is currently living apart from his family and is receiving outpatient care. Doctors are not sure how long the rapper will be on the mend.
Despite the current separation, Kim is still by West’s side as he tries to get better. “There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply,” a source told People.
