50 Cent could see Kanye West’s breakdown coming due to his “little outbursts.”
The “Stronger” rapper was hospitalized last month for a mental evaluation after his reportedly erratic behavior caused concern for his health.
He was released from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center on Wednesday (November 30), but will still be under the care of his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam while at home with wife Kim Kardashian and their two children.
50, who has known Kanye for some time now, shared his thoughts on the incident during an appearance on Thursday’s (December 1) “Watch What Happens Live” when he was quizzed by host Andy Cohen on the validity of this news.
“That was interesting cause I kind of felt like you could see that coming… in pieces, it was like little outbursts,” 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, said of Kanye.
“No. He could have just went to work,” he added to dismiss the idea that Kanye faked his breakdown to claim insurance money.
50 also noted that he thinks Kim’s robbery in Paris in October added to Kanye’s state of mind.
Other outlets claim his busy tour schedule and the anniversary of the death of his late mother Donda contributed to the breakdown too, with his hospital admission coming immediately after the rapper canceled his Saint Pablo tour.
The “Famous” musician is said to require ongoing outpatient treatment while at home, according to TMZ, and Kim has remained by his side the entire time, even spending Thanksgiving in hospital with him.
However it’s thought Kanye’s didn’t completely shut off all his commitments while in hospital, as he reportedly worked on new music and fashion designs for his Yeezy label.
