Kanye West has reportedly been released from hospital just over a week after being admitted for exhaustion. 

The rapper was taken to a Los Angeles clinic with a “medical emergency” on 21 November shortly after police responded to calls of a disturbance.

Various reports suggested he was being treated for exhaustion and would be undergoing psychiatric tests.

The 39-year-old was kept in for just over a week, including over Thanksgiving, but was released on Wednesday, according to reports. He is now recuperating at home with his wife Kim Kardashian West and their young children North and Saint, reports TMZ.

His admission to hospital followed a series of bizarre on-stage antics including a 45-minute speech where he said he would have voted for Donald Trump and a show in Sacramento where he performed three songs before walking off stage. Days later he cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour.

Since his admission, West has received numerous messages of support from fans and celebrities as speculation has grown over his mental health.

Kardashian West has reportedly been at his side throughout his hospital stay. His health episode follows a torturous time for the couple after the reality TV star was the victim of an armed robbery in Paris in October. 

A representative for West did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
