Kanye’s shock breakdown down to 'erratic taking of medication'

Rapper began altering dosage of drugs for longstanding psychological issues

Kanye West had altered the amount of medication he was supposed to take for a longstanding psychological issues - which led to his breakdown, reports claim.

He became "erratic" in the way he took the drugs after his wife Kim Kardashian’s terrifying Paris robbery ordeal, sources told TMZ.

After he was hospitalized suffering from a "psychotic breakdown", it then took eight days for doctors at UCLA Medical center to stabilize the star and get his medication back on track, the website reported.

It’s still unclear whether the hip hop star stopped taking his pills completely or started taking different amounts.

The source added that he’s still getting outpatient treatment now he has been released from hospital.

Meanwhile another report claimed that Kanye is living apart from his wife and kids - in a rental property.

"Kim is being very protective and doesn't want Kanye around the kids right now,” a source told Us Weekly.

It’s been a tough few weeks for Kimye, with Kanye’s breakdown coming just weeks after Kim was held at gunpoint and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry.

“It’s just been hell for them,” a source told  the magazine.

“Kanye’s behavior took a huge toll on their marriage. But Kim feels relieved he is getting the help he needs.

“She thinks this is what it will take to save him — and help their marriage.”

The 39-year-old was hospitalized last month after reportedly suffering an emotional breakdown.

The rapper was forced to cancel the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour after a string of onstage rants and erratic behavior.
