Troubled rapper Kanye West is no longer living with reality star Kim Kardashian for “medical reasons,” according to reports.

The rapper was released from hospital earlier this week, but has not returned home to his wife. According to reports in the US, Kanye is living away from the marital home while he continues to battle his demons.

The nature of his illness has not been made public, but he was admitted to hospital after his concerned family doctor made a 911 call. The superstar is now understood to be continuing to receive care, but as an outpatient.

According a source close to the couple: “Kim still seems concerned but is supportive. They don’t know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care.”

Hospital vigil

Kim, star of Keeping up With The Kardashians, is believed to have been supportive while Kanye was in hospital, remaining by his side. However she is understood to have become increasingly worried and overwhelmed as a result of the situation. She is also concerned about the relationship the rapper has with his children North and Saint.

While Kanye is said to have come out of hospital because he could do longer bear to be apart from his children, Kim is believed to have concerns about Kanye being around the little ones. Her concerns have been revealed following a leaked 911 call in which the operator tells his doctor not to let him get his hands on any weapons, and to keep an eye on the rapper until paramedics arrived to help.

The rapper spent a week in hospital after suffering from what is believed to have been a psychotic breakdown. Sources say that Kanye was finding it tough to cope with the nine-year anniversary of his mother’s death as well as the trauma of finding out that his wife had been robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
