50 Cent claims he could see Kanye West’s hospitalisation coming.
The ‘In Da Club’ hitmaker says he wasn’t surprised when he heard the 39-year-old rapper had been admitted to hospital with sleep deprivation and exhaustion and believes Kim Kardashian West’s terrifying ordeal of being robbed at gunpoint in October contributed to Kanye’s state.
Speaking on Watch What Happens Live, he said: "That was interesting because I kind of felt like you could see that coming. It was like little outbursts. I think [Kim’s robbery] was a part of Kanye’s breakdown."
Kanye has now returned home to rest and be with Kim, 36, and their two children – Saint, 11 months, and North, three – but he is desperate to start working again.
A source shared: "People in Kanye’s inner circle are hoping the hospital stay has made him realise that he needs to take a step back from work and focus on his personal health and mindset. Kanye loves working, but he loves Kim and his family more. He had way too much on his plate and it came to a point where he couldn’t handle it all, so he just broke. He needs to find a good balance with the two in his life and he’ll work hard at finding that."
Even when he was in the hospital, Kanye was keen to make music.
Another insider added: "Kanye keeps wanting to work. At the hospital, he requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed. And he has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines. He continues to want to work and Kim has to keep telling him to rest."
