Kanye West has finally been released from hospital, having spent more than a week there following an episode of what has been described as “temporary psychosis.”

He is currently receiving outpatient treatment, however, according to a report in Us Weekly, he is living in a rented house in Los Angeles, at the behest of wife Kim Kardashian

A source told the publication that, Kanye’s behaviour in recent months, especially in the wake of her robbery in Paris, has made family life difficult, saying of the situation:

“Kim is being very protective and doesn’t want Kanye around the kids right now … It’s just been hell for them. Kanye’s behaviour took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs. She thinks this is what it will take to save him – and help their marriage.”

Per another report in Rolling Stone, Kanye hadn’t slept for up to a week in the lead-up to his hospitalisation, and “was having difficulty identifying what was real.” Their sources went on to say:

“He’d be up drawing, writing and sketching, or pacing and doing pushups [at night] … He just could not calm down and go to bed.”

Another added:

“He would be up all night ranting about things. [Kim and Kanye] were fighting because he was impossible to live with.”

So far, the only family member to make an official statement is Kanye’s sister-in-law Kendall Jenner, who said: “Everyone is doing okay. Just praying.” We wish Kanye all the best in his ongoing recovery.
