Kanye West rushed to hospital by wife Kim Kardashian

Kanye West rushed to hospital by wife Kim Kardashian

Famed for courting controversy with unique aplomb, Kanye West, is anything but predictable. The rapper, who is married to reality television star, Kim Kardashian, has had what appears to be another public breakdown in recent months.

It all began when West returned to Twitter and proceeded to post a series of tweets which ranged from being philosophical or political in tone, to downright nonsensical.

After endorsing Donald Trump, and urging his followers to do things like "break the normal" and "remove worry" from their lives, the 41-year-old incited mass criticism when he said that 400 years of slavery was "a choice" in an interview with TMZ.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years [...] For 400 years? That sounds like a choice," he stated. "You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all. It’s like we’re mentally in prison. I like the word prison because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. Slavery is to blacks as the Holocaust is to Jews. Prison is something that unites as one race, blacks and whites, that we’re the human race."

Now, TMZ reports that Kim Kardashian was forced to rush her husband to hospital on Sunday.

Kim, who has three children with West, transported him to West Hills Hospital in the San Fernando Valley because he had caught the flu. The publication alleges that the rapper's condition kept deteriorating until medical intervention was deemed necessary.

West was admitted for a short time before he was allowed to return home to rest and recover. An insider has confirmed that the 41-year-old was taken to "see a doctor for antibiotics" and that he is "home resting now."

West had tweeted about having a sinus headache earlier this month. "I had a sinus headache on a flight once and I got a f*****g cat scan after because it was so bad," he wrote. He later added, "Whenever you're feeling down bored irritated or disgruntled just say...thank god I don't have a sinus headache... they feel like the episode of black mirror when the bee went into the guys ear..."

We wish Kanye a speedy recovery!
