Kanye West is officially out of the hospital after nearly a week under the careful supervision of UCLA Medical Center doctors. While many reports surfaced about his condition during that time period, very little was confirmed.
On Thursday, however, fans of the “Famous” rapper received an unprecedented look inside his alleged mental breakdown. Several outlets, including Entertainment Tonight, received audio from a 911 call regarding West’s condition.
The call was placed by Dr. Michael Farzam — the 21-time Grammy award winner’s therapist. During the conversation Farzam can be heard requesting police presence on the scene, though he does not make it clear whether West was physically combative at that time. The 911 operator confirms that police and paramedics are on there way, instructing Farzam to stay with West and ensure that he does not have access to weapons.
“If you can bring both [police and paramedics], yes” Farzam said on the tape. “I think he’s definitely going to need to be hospitalized, so I wouldn’t just do the police by itself, I think he needs to…”
West was released from the hospital on Wednesday, according to report from TMZ. He was deemed stable enough for release, though sources claimed it would be some time before the musician returned to the stage. West has not provided a time frame for future performances and the anonymous source said it was “just too early to tell.”
Early reports suggested that the father of two was scheduled for release from UCLA Medical Center on Monday. West was scheduled to be under the supervision of his personal doctors after leaving the facility. TMZ stated that hospital staff made the decision to continue his treatment there after reportedly finding that he was not yet well enough to go home. At the time, no projected release date was given.
Throughout his hospitalization, multiple reports surfaced about the rapper’s condition, as well as speculation about whether or not he would be making music as a means of healing. Us Weekly reported that West, who canceled the remaining dates on the “Saint Pablo” tour days before he was hospitalized, had been requesting recording equipment at his bedside. Kim Kardashian is said to have advised against it, but was not able to convince her husband.
While Kardashian may not have agreed with her husband’s desire to work while seeking medical treatment, she is said to have been by his side throughout much of his care. This provides a stark contrast to reports that the pair were fighting prior to his alleged breakdown.
On Wednesday, Us claimed that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star found West “impossible to live with” in the weeks leading up to his hospitalization. The pair are said to have drifted apart following Kardashian’s decision not to tag along on the “Saint Pablo” tour after her frightening shakeup in Paris on Oct. 3. At home, West is said to have begun pulling all nighters and constantly “ranting” about unspecified topics.
West has not yet broken his silence since his alleged mental breakdown.
