Rapper and songwriter, Kanye West, is just out of the hospital. The star was admitted to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on November 21. A few weeks after being admitted to the facility, sources confirmed that Kanye West, husband of reality television star and model Kim Kardashian, was taken to the center after he complained of exhaustion and sleep deprivation. During the course of his treatment, West was placed on a psychiatric hold.
West’s first public appearance post this release from the hospital was witnessed at the MOCA Pacific Design Center. The photo taken by artist Giovanni Bassan revealed West stopping at the design center to get a preview of Rich Owen’s furniture exhibition. Owen is a fashion designer and his work is displayed at the exhibition until December 17. West was seen dressed in a grey sweater, black pants and white shoes. What left people shocked was that he was flaunting blonde hair! The star’s post-trauma hair changes left his fans stunned. Kanye West’s haircut and his new hairdo is perhaps his post-treatment look, as seen with many stars including Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan after they were out of rehab.
Though the picture initially appeared only on Bassan’s private Instagram account, it later went viral on many of West’s fan pages. Kardashian, however, was nowhere to be seen. She has also been keeping a low profile since the burglary incident that occurred in Paris in October.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Relationship Woes
The last few months have been intense and extremely difficult for the pair. Known for their lavish wedding which look place a few years ago, Kardashian and West are currently going through a low phase. With West’s hospitalization and Kardashian’s Paris robbery incident, news of the couple splitting up had been circulating before West was admitted.
However, Jonathan Cheban, Kardashian’s best friend recently cleared the air. “Well, I can tell you the divorce is not happening. I was so surprised when someone asked me that on a red carpet … But I’ll tell you they are definitely not getting a divorce.” Cheban also mentioned that the couple are looking forward to the New Year and focusing on some great changes.
Initially, a friend of the star brought up on the reality television series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, that Kim Kardashian was strongly considering a divorce. However when West was taken into the facility, Kardashian stuck by his side the entire time. “She’s being a supportive wife. She cares about Kanye and feels relieved he’s getting the help he needs,” said Kardashian’s friend.
