Kanye West was recently rushed to a hospital in handcuffs following a psychotic breakdown at his personal trainer's gym. One of the reasons for the "Famous" singer's breakdown is being attributed to marriage problems with "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star Kim Kardashian.
According to the TMZ, West's personal Dr. Michael Farzam was the one who called 911 on the rapper due to psychosis. Police reports say that Dr. Farzam placed West on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which means cops would need to handcuff the patient to the stretcher.
Police are also told that the doctor, who gave an alias of Jim Jones for his patient, wanted West to be taken to UCLA Medical Center. The report also said that West tried to assault a staff member of the gym.
The Daily Mail reported that Kim Kardashian, who was in New York at that time for her first public appearance following her robbery experience in Paris, immediately got on a plane to rush by her husband's side. However, marital problems, together with other issues such as paranoia with Jay-Z and jealousy with Beyonce are being blamed for West's breakdown.
"Kim is fed up," a close friend said. "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."
Another friend said that Kardashian just wants West "to grow up and really be a man." Kardashian wants West to be there for her and for her children, especially after the trauma she went through in Paris.
The friend said that West deciding to continue with his tour, despite what happened to his wife, was the last straw for Kardashian. "That has hurt her more than the ordeal itself."
Aside from marital problems West has been dealing with several issues, such as November has been a traumatic month for him, as he hasn't recovered yet from the sudden passing of his mother in November 2007, following plastic surgery. West was also hurt when he heard Beyonce said that she won't perform at the MTV Music Video Awards unless she wins "Video of the Year" over the rapper.
He also ranted about Jay-Z, telling him to call him like a man and not mess with his head. Whatever the reason for his breakdown, it's clear that the rapper is going through some personal things and is not okay.
