Kanye West’s Nervous Breakdown Reportedly Fueled By Rift With Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Things haven’t been easy for Kanye West or his family. Following Kim Kardashian’s traumatic robbery, the rapper extended his Saint Pablo tour, spewed a few concerning rants, then cancelled all remaining dates. 

By now you’ve probably heard that West was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation on Monday after cancelling his tour. Reports seemed to point to sleep deprivation as the major cause of his breakdown, but new details are saying it may have been Kim who set him off.

According to The Daily Mail (take that as you will), marital problems with Kim were major triggers.

“Kim is fed up. They’ve been bickering constantly – she didn’t want Kanye to do the tour in the first place. She wanted him by her side as she recovered from her traumatic robbery in Paris. She lost days with him while he’s touring and then he made a rash decision to end the concert after ten minutes and go on a rant,” said the source.

Kim is reportedly struggling with Kanye’s breakdown, especially after the stress of her robbery. She’s apparently gone M.I.A. The Daily Mail’s source reports:

“We’re all really worried about Kim – no one has been able to get hold of her since it happened. Kim got through her ordeal [in Paris] without losing her mind and now she has to deal with Kanye losing his. She has to take care of him when really, she needs taking care of herself. She’s still not fully recovered and now she has to deal with this. It’s a complete mess.”

Page Six reports that his lack of sleep spiraled into a nervous breakdown because he doesn’t really have anyone looking out for his welfare. A source said:

“He’s having a nervous breakdown. He’s surrounded by all these crazy people, but there’s nobody he listens to or who can rein him in. He’s spiraling further and further out of control. Basically everything crazy he does is ‘art’ — canceling his tour is ‘art’ — he is becoming more and more unpredictable. His state of mind goes back a long way, perhaps to the death of his mother, which he never got over. That combined with his chaotic life — he often stays up and works for 48 hours at a time when he’s on, and calls his team at 3 a.m. Kanye needs a stronger support system, he needs to take some time to fall to the ground and start from scratch again. He’s so talented, but he’s his own worst enemy.”

It makes sense — the crazier Kanye is, the more we write it off as part of Kanye’s “genius,” when in reality, some of his antics are pretty concerning. Regardless of how concerning Kanye’s behavior is, Kim is apparently fed up (which, as a side note, we find pretty hard to believe considering that if he’s really suffering, who could be that cold to their husband?).

The source reports:

“She wants him to grow up and really be a man, stop throwing tantrums and thinking throwing a tantrum on stage is more important than being with your children, especially after she just went through this horrible ordeal.”

“She really has a lot to think about, she’s really taking time out. When he made the decision to continue the tour after what happened [in Paris], that was a huge last straw scenario for her. Deep down in her heart, she really wanted him to pull the tour and spend time with her to help her recover and get over it. That has hurt her more than the ordeal itself.”

While Kanye and Kim are going through a really difficult time — so much beyond their control has happened — we are really rooting for them. We have a feeling that as long as they lean on each other, take some time off and spend it with their family, out of the public eye, they’ll be okay.
