Hal Carmichael, whose mother Cheryl was married to Kanye’s father, has spoken out about over Kanye’s hospitalisation. Although Hal has not seen Kanye since 2014, their families reportedly remain close and he even attended his wedding to Kim in Italy.
Hal, who lives in San Antonio, Texas, spoke exclusively to The Sun UK…
“No one thought Paris would happen in a million years and now he’s seen it happen to Kim, it’s traumatising. Ye is tired, he’s hurt, he feels betrayed and he’s probably feeling depressed. “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. 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. He ends up walking about worrying and thinking, who’s going to do what to me?”
Hal reveals that the family were surprised when they found out that Kanye was rushed to hospital on November 21.
“It was so shocking when I found out he was in hospital but 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.”
On allegations that Kanye was put on “suicide watch”, Hal who doesn’t think that is true, said:
“I don’t think he would have got to the point where he tried to kill himself. He’s exhausted from working over and over and over and he’s burning out. He’s not mentally aware right now. But 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.”
