TMZ reports that Kanye West has been having a rough go of it ever since he was hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center with that celebrity ailment popularly know as “exhaustion.” Kanye’s “exhaustion” sounds more like PR-inese for “mental illness,” according to reports that say he’s actually on a 5150 hold due to “temporary psychosis.” Kanye is said to be wrestling with paranoia amongst other symptoms.
And not the kind of paranoia where you smoke up and then perseverate over whether or not you called the Thai place too many times to ask when your food was getting there (It turns out it was twice in 20 minutes. That was some good shit. The weed was, too).
We’re told after Kanye was taken to the hospital Monday he was convinced people were out to get him, including the doctors who were caring for him. Our sources say for a time he wouldn’t even let the doctors touch him.
Our sources say the paranoia has been building for months … obviously going way beyond the stated reasons for the hospitalization … dehydration and exhaustion.
This “Kanye is paranoid” story is something of a known quantity, isn’t it? Most of his rants in the past umpteen years have been about his suspicions that other celebrities are trying to ace him out of awards for his videos amongst other “um, ok, Kanye, there there, now” claims. When you’re rich, famous and good at what you do, why perform only two and a half songs and then ride your pneumatic platform of lights above your previously-adoring fans while raving about not getting some silly moon man statue? That’s paranoia.
There’s good news. Kanye might be getting out of the hospital tomorrow. Aside from Kanye, this is good news for Kris Jenner because her ass probably has a camera crew on standby to kollect footage for the “Kanye is nuts, should Kim leave him?” story arc on the next season of KUWTK. This would also make up for the evening that Yeezus’ hospitalization ruined.
We’re told the goal is getting him home Monday and under the care of his personal doctor, but it’s too early to know if that will happen.
It’s been sadly obvious that Kanye has been troubled for awhile. It’s also possible to pinpoint exactly when he finally drove his brain convertible over the sanity cliff. I mean, he went after Beyonce. Her fans are legion and will fuck up your life beyond all recognition. Going after Queen Bey is just plain crazy.
