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)
