The media outlet writes that an “erratic pattern of taking his meds” contributed to West’s hospitalization on Nov. 21, when, after an incident at his personal trainer’s home, he was taken to the UCLA Medical Center for evaluation.
West was released from the hospital more than a week afterward, but the details surrounding the events leading up to his hospitalization remained unclear. A representative for the rapper told The New York Times at the time that West tried medical attention for exhaustion.
TMZ reports, however, that taking the wrong medication dosage was a major factor in West’s public breakdown in recent weeks.
The Paris robbery of his wife, Kim Kardashian, in October was apparently what led West to deviate from the prescribed dosage, according to TMZ. Kardashian has yet to make a public appearance since the incident, which reportedly took a serious toll on West’s mental health.
West has often mentioned experiences with depression and nervousnes in his music, giving his fans a window into some of the demons he’s been battling for years.
On the track “FML” off its recent album, “The Life of Pablo, ” he raps: “One last thing I need to let you know/ You ain’t never seen nothing crazier than this nigga when he off his Lexapro/ Remember that last time in Mexico? Remember that last time, the episode? ”
According to People magazine, West and Kardashian are living apart during this recovery period. The rapper is reportedly receiving outpatient care with a medical squad at an undisclosed place, while the reality starring and their two children, North, 3, and Saint, 11 months, remain in the family’s Calabasas, California, home.
“There are annoyances and problems, like any relationship, ” a source told People, “but they love each other deeply.”
The Huffington Post has reached out to West’s representatives and will update this post accordingly.
