Following the news that Kanye West has been hospitalised for psychiatric evaluation, more details surrounding the situation have come to light.

Initially, it was reported that the 39-year-old was forcibly taken and put under psychiatric hold, however, an insider has revealed that ‘no one was assaulted. [Kanye] was suffering from sleep deprivation, lucid, very f—ing tired.

‘The police report says he was taken at force. He wasn’t forcibly taken. He definitely was not put on a 5150 [an involuntary psychiatric hold].’

However, now another source close to Kim Kardashian’s husband has come forward, telling TMZ that ‘ Kanye’s psychological problems are significant enough so that his insurance policy – which covers lost profits and financial obligations for cancelled concerts due to illness – will almost certainly cover the losses for the 21 concerts he’s cancelled.’

It appears that his stay in hospital is ‘far from over’ and he won’t be able to go home to see his family for Thanksgiving – however, Kim Kardashian has reportedly not left his side since the beginning of the ordeal.

We’re keeping you in our thoughts, Kanye!
