Kanye West's hospitalization reportedly a result of altered medication for longstanding 'psychological issues'

Kanye West's recent 8-day hospitalization was the result of an altered medication intake for his "longstanding psychological issues," TMZ reported on Saturday.

The website cited sources that said the rapper had been taking medication for years, but "deviated from the prescribed dosage" after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in early October during Paris Fashion Week.

The trauma of the terrifying incident evidently had a large effect on both Kardashian and West, who have both changed their behavior ever since. For her part, Kardashian has stayed away from the public eye almost completely, with the exception of a few spottings in public and photos released through her official app.

West, though, had exhibited a series of erratic and concerning behaviors during each stop of his Saint Pablo Tour, which he continued throughout the fall after the robbery.

Following a last-minute cancellation of a concert in Los Angeles, West then cancelled the rest of his tour. That same night, the rapper was rushed to the hospital following an alleged outburst at the home of his trainer. His doctor's 911 call leaked on Thursday.

8 days after being hospitalized after his breakdown, West was discharged from the UCLA Medical Center, but never returned to the Bel Air mansion that he shares with wife, Kim. Instead, he is allegedly receiving outpatient care in a rental home elsewhere.

Kardashian is staying at their home in Bel Air with children North and Saint, who turns one on Monday. It's unclear whether or not West will be present for his son's first birthday, as Kardashian is allegedly "concerned" for her husband.

Sources close to the couple also indicate that all of the recent drama in their lives has taken a strain on their marriage, but they're trying to work it out.
