Report: Anniversary Of Mother’s Death Triggered Kanye West Breakdown
Kanye West was hospitalized because he had a nervous breakdown that was related to the anniversary of his mother’s death, a new report claims.
According to TMZ, the rapper was “a powder keg of emotions” in the weeks leading up to his hospitalization.
His breakdown was triggered by “a shocking lack of sleep and the pressures of touring, running his businesses, parenting and providing emotional support to his wife who was suffering her own emotional trauma after the Paris robbery.”
“People close to Kanye tell us he never effectively grieved over his mom’s death and has always had a difficult time in November, but this time he reached the breaking point,” TMZ notes. (RELATED: Kanye West Will Not Be Released From The Hospital Anytime Soon)

Kim Kardashian, his wife of two years, has been feeding West and sleeping at his side since he was admitted.
“She has been an unbelievably devoted spouse,” a source close to the family said. “He’s a lucky man.” (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Not Leaving Kanye West’s Side)
