Kanye West Was Evaluated by Doctor in Wyoming, Source Says
New details have emerged about Kanye West following his recent twitter rants.
Sources tell Us Weekly that his team is with him in Wyoming, and that he has been evaluated by a doctor.
The insider said, “Kanye's loved ones are very worried about him at the moment. Kanye's manager, Bu Thiam, and close childhood friends from Chicago Don 'Don C' Crawley and John Monopoly flew in to Cody, Wyoming, to be with him. The group worked to get him professional help.”
The evaluation happened on Monday, and the doctor “determined that he did not need immediate hospitalization and that he was in a stable mental state at the time.”
The source continued, “Those close to Kanye are taking this very seriously — their top priority is to make sure that he's safe and getting the necessary attention and treatment he needs.” The insider believed the rapper would be “evaluated again” today.
For now, the Grammy winner is focusing on his music: “Kanye has been working on his album at this time with music creatives in Cody.”
The news comes after a Kanye tweetstorm about his wife Kim Kardashian trying to have him locked up, and later about wanting a divorce.
Kim responded on Instagram, writing in part, “I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions. He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.”
