As more details are revealed concerning Kanye West‘s hospitalisation, it’s becoming pretty clear that situation is actually bloody serious. The latest reports state that the rapper will not be released from hospital today as scheduled, given that his condition still isn’t stable enough.
TMZ reports that West was deemed unfit to leave UCLA Medical Centre, where he was initially checked-in “for his own health and safety”. Sources have stated that West “is still not stable”. Earlier, West’s doctor reportedly confirmed to the Hollywood tabloid that his patient “suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration”.
Psychosis, whether temporary or not, is just about the most fucked up thing imaginable. Considering the dude went straight back to work moments after his wife was held hostage on the other side of the world, psychosis seems a pretty reasonable response.
Lady Gaga led a chorus of support and “compassion” for the rapper, with known pal Chance The Rapper paying tribute during a performance. Of course, there’s always going to be some fuckwits — looking at you, Lushsux — who can’t help but target the low-hanging fruit.
You got this, Ye.
