Monday afternoon, Kanye West was taken to the hospital. Now, according to PEOPLE Magazine, new details are beginning to emerge.
The troubled rapper was hospitalized due to exhaustion. “He is exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation. He went to the hospital at will under the advise of his physician. He’s fine.”
The source reveals that Kanye West has been going through a lot for a while, especially since the recent anniversary of his mother, Donda West’s, passing.
“He feels like he’s under spiritual attack, and has been for awhile. It’s not just the big things; it’s smaller, quieter things, internal things. You might think that it’s about Kim’s robbery, and while that didn’t help, that’s not what’s going on here. He’s dealing with a lot more subtle issues,” the source tells PEOPLE.
“His mother died in November, so this time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him. He works through the pain every November,” the source adds.
The source says that although Kanye was hospitalized for being physically tired, he is also emotionally tired.
“He feels like it’s a trying time for his spirit, but that can be a good thing. He isn’t one to run away from these things. He leans in and listens, and comes away a stronger, better man. But it hurts him; his spirit is vexed. But that’s where growth comes from,” the source says.
“Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It’s exhausting, and it takes everything he’s got. He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit. It’s very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he’s not the ‘Ye that everyone knows.”
