Kanye West’s hospital stint may officially be over, but the 39-year-old rapper isn’t in the clear just yet.

It has been revealed that Yeezy’s erratic behaviour and subsequent hospitalisation on November 21 stem from his irregular pattern in taking his prescription medication.

‘Kanye has long suffered from psychological issues controllable by medication,’ according to an insider, who added that, while the star ‘is steady on his meds, [he] deviated from the prescribed dosage… and that’s what led to the downward spiral and eventual mental breakdown.’

It’s not clear if he stopped taking medication altogether or deviated from his prescribed dosage following his wife Kim Kardashian’s robbery ordeal in Paris, but ‘doctors were able to keep Kanye in the hospital for eight days, and during that time were able to medicate him, and get him more stable’.

Fingers crossed everything’s on the up for the troubled star!
