Kanye West’s Doctor Reportedly Warned Police Officers That He Could Become Violent
According to a report from TMZ, Kanye West‘s personal doctor warned police that he may become violent when they went to get him and bring him to the hospital. Law enforcement sources told the site that Dr. Michael Farzam made the call and described West as “Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5’8″, 175 lbs … suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”
Supposedly, the doctor said that West should be placed on a 5150 hold and taken to UCLA Medical Center. Additionally, the report says that he had assaulted a staff member at the gym.
West had been in the middle of his Saint Pablo tour and has been working on fashion design projects. He has his own brand and also designs for Adidas. A source told People that all of these things together “really wore him out.”
People also reported that “His mother died in November, so this time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him. He works through the pain every November.”
Kim Kardashian was supposed to make her first public appearance since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris last night at an event honoring her late father. At the last minute, she decided to skip the event.
