Kanye West was released from hospital Wednesday a week after he was admitted as a result of "a mental breakdown" as well as "sleep deprivation and exhaustion." The rapper's release from the hospital has given rise to speculation about his return to the stage.
TMZ reported, citing sources, that the "Famous" singer is in a fragile state and needs medical and psychological help to return to good health. It remains unclear when West will come back to the stage. However, some sources reportedly claimed that West could resume performing before the new year, "but it's just too early to tell."
Before his hospitalization, West abruptly canceled all concerts through the end of 2016, saying that he plans to be back early in 2017.
Last week, TMZ reported that his insurance policy — which covers lost profits and financial obligations for cancelled concerts due to illness — could cover losses for the 21 concerts West recently cancelled.
The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation after he acted "erratically." Some reports claimed that West was not only under work pressure, but was also stressed by the incident of his wife, Kim Kardashian, being robbed in Paris last month.
There has been no official statement so far from West or his wife.
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner spoke to reporters Tuesday at the Victoria's Secret fashion show in Paris, where she said the family had been praying for West.
"Yes, of course [he'll be OK]," Kim Kardashian's half-sister told Entertainment Tonight of West's health status.
"Everyone's OK," she continued. "Everyone is doing OK, just praying."
