This is so sad! The anniversary of Kanye West’s mother’s death might have been a contributing factor in his mental breakdown and hospitalization on Nov. 21. Get the full details on the guilt Yeezy still feels over his mother’s death.
“If I had never moved to LA she’d be alive,” Kanye West, 39, said in an interview last year. “I don’t want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears.” It is so upsetting to think that as of last year, Kanye still thought that he played a role in his mother, Donda West‘s, death on Nov. 10, 2007. And now that he’s been hospitalized, the former plastic surgeon who operated on Donda before her death told the Daily Mail he thinks Yeezy still hasn’t gotten over it and that’s part of the reason he had to be hospitalized.
“If nine years later Kanye can’t deal with it and wants to blame himself, then someone needs to stand up and say to him, ‘Come on, this is not your fault, dude,” Dr. Jan Adams, who was wrongfully blamed for Kanye’s mother’s death at the time, told the Daily Mail. “We need to turn the page. We can feel sad and we can miss her, but it doesn’t happen until you confront the truth.'” That’s so true.
A member of Kanye’s family said that the rapper is “broken, lost and hurt” and is “highly sensitive” during the anniversary of his mother’s death, especially because it is near the holidays. “Any time around the holidays is tough for him, he is an only child. But he was very close to his mom, so this time of year… it’s really difficult,” the source told the Daily Mail.
“Then on top of it, everything that happened with Kim [Kardashian] in Paris, the build up to it is a lot, it’s a lot of pressure,” the source continued. “Kanye is highly sensitive and highly protective of certain things which doesn’t help. But people are so used to seeing him as a performer or as an icon, they don’t see him as a normal person. And really he is just like we all are, broken and lost and hurt, we all are made of different fragments as human beings. With too much pressure it bursts and right now with everything hurting for him Kanye has burst.” We really hope he feels better soon!
