Kanye West's stepbrother has spoken out about his hospitalisation and his current mental state.
Hal Carmichael, who's mother was married to the rapper's father, says that the robbery Kim Kardashian fell victim to in Paris, has taken a heavy toll on his brother.
Hal told The Sun that he "is tired, he's hurt, he feels betrayed and he's probably feeling depressed".
"No one thought Paris would happen in a million years and now he's seen it happen to Kim, it's traumatising."
Hal continued to explain that Kanye is having trouble trusting people after Kim's horrific ordeal, "It's like who can he trust? You can't trust anyone, even the people you've been paying to protect you. They haven't been doing their jobs correctly."
Reports have said that the rapper is currently fearing for his own life, something fans would have suspected when he pleaded to Jay Z to not send killers whilst on tour.
"I think Kanye got to a point when he was fearing for his life and for his family's safety because of what went down in Paris - I think it took a toll on him."
Hal said he was shocked to find out that Kanye was in hospital, but had his suspicions as to why.
"I knew in my stomach why - he's mentally exhausted because he works so hard."
"Since he started out in the business he has never taken a break, or stopped working. He's lost it right now because he's only human."
He is hopeful that Kanye will make a full recovery because of all the family support he has.
"He's a strong man. His dad is still here, he has his wife and two kids to think about. Kanye would never do anything to himself that might affect the people he loves."
Kanye is currently still in hospital but reports have recently said that he is doing better.
Our support is with his family.
