Speaking backstage at a fashion show in Paris, model Kendall Jenner assured reporters that brother-in-law Kanye was on the mend. None of the family was present with her at the time, but she let on that they had all been text messaging back and forth regularly.
“Everyone’s OK”, she told an interviewer with ET while preparing for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “Everyone is doing OK, just praying.”
Earlier in the month, rapper Kanye West was admitted to UCLA Medical Center after announcing that he was canceling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour. The police were called to come to the home of Harley Pasternak, a celebrity trainer, where West was being observed by a Dr. Michael Farzam. According to the physician, the artist had gone into a state of “temporary psychosis” and recommended that he be taken to a local hospital immediately.
Jenner’s big sister – and Kanye’s wife – Kim Kardashian reportedly dropped everything and ran to be with her husband. Officially, Kanye was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation although some speculated that he was also on a suicide watch. The rapper spent almost 10 days under close supervision by doctors and medical staff at UCLA Medical Center before being released this past Wednesday.
Sources close to West have confirmed that November is a historically difficult month for the rapper, ever since his mother passed away over nine years ago. A few months ago, his wife was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room, another stressor which may have led to the episode. Since that time, the family has been reexamining their security measures and making some changes in their public profile. Coincidentally, the incident took place at the same time that the rapper’s wife Kim was making her first public appearance without him since that incident.
When asked about her celebrity sister Kim, Kendall told reporters that; “She’s good. She’s good”. She also told reporters that no one would be coming out to cheer her on for this runway experience, but that the entire clan had been wishing her luck from back home.
Uncharacteristically, the entire Kardashian clan kept quiet during West’s hospital stay, although cameras were still rolling for the family’s Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s reality series. Even his release from the hospital was downplayed, with Kim opting for a ‘low key’ party rather than the usual extravaganza. The party not only marked the release of West from the hospital, it also celebrated the couple’s son Saint, who will turn one on December 5th.
While there has been some speculation that the couple is experiencing major difficulties in their marriage, sources close to the family are insisting that these are being highly exaggerated. One anonymous source stated that; “There are frustrations and problems like any relationship, but they love each other deeply”.
Kanye will continue to receive treatment as an outpatient to assist him in developing better coping mechanisms for stress. As for Kendall, she was stunning at her fashion show appearance, earning her Victoria Secret’s wings for the first time.
