Kanye West’s brother has revealed that Yeezy is ‘terrified people are trying to kill him’.

Hal Carmichael – whose mother Cheryl was married to Kanye’s father Ray – has been the first family member to openly talk about the 39-year-old rapper’s breakdown. Specifically, how Kanye is so traumatised from the ordeal, he’s convinced people are out to get him.

Speaking with The Sun, Hal admits, ‘No one thought Paris would happen in a million years and now he’s seen it happen to Kim. It’s traumatising. Ye is tired, he’s hurt, he feels betrayed and he’s probably feeling depressed.

‘It’s like who can he trust? You can’t trust anyone, even the people you’ve been paying to protect you. They haven’t been doing their jobs correctly. I think Kanye got to a point when he was fearing for his life and for his family’s safety because of what went down in Paris – I think it took a toll on him.

‘He ends up walking about worrying and thinking, “Who’s going to do what to me?”’

The stepbrothers who have not seen each other since 2014 are still close, and Hal is convinced that Kanye will come back from the ordeal. ‘Kanye will get over this and he will get through it. He will be the same Ye with a different kind of glory and a different kind of crown this time around.’
