Kanye West’s friends are reportedly terrified that the rapper is experiencing a ‘nervous breakdown’ after learning he canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour. They’re scared to death knowing just how exhausted their hard-working friend pushes himself, according to a new report!
Kanye West, 39, had a whirlwind weekend. He first had a major meltdown at his concert in Sacramento on November 19, ending the show after performing two songs and screaming at the audience for 10-plus minutes about his beef with Jay Z and Beyonce. After storming out of the show, he followed up by bizarrely rejoining Instagram, and posting nearly 100 pics in less than an hour. He canceled his Los Angeles concert on November 20 right before he was due to perform, and finally announced on November 21 that the entire Saint Pablo tour was officially off. Wow!
“There are fears [Kanye] is having a nervous breakdown,” one of Kanye’s friends told Page Six. “He’s surrounded by all these crazy people, but there’s nobody he listens to or who can rein him in. He’s a mad genius, and he’s spiraling further and further out of control. Basically everything crazy he does is ‘art,’ so he is becoming more and more unpredictable.”
How horrible! Kanye’s friends are clearly worried, and want to help him after seeing his strange behavior. Their belief as to why Kanye may allegedly be having a nervous breakdown matches wife Kim Kardashian‘s fears: that he’s too overworked, stressed out, and trying to do too much at once.
“He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line,” another friend told The Post. “He’s a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work — which is extremely important to him — and the rigors of the tour every night. It really wore him out.”
