Kanye West (briefly) visited a hospital near his ranch in Cody, Wyoming on Saturday afternoon, only to determine he’d rather receive care back within the privacy of the ranch itself.
According to an insider close to the presidential candidate’s family and friends, the music producer and rapper had been experiencing “a lot of anxiety” recently and ultimately decided to make the trek to the hospital to get checked out. Upon getting there, though, he had a change of heart, and apparently returned home for private treatment behind closed doors.

All this is according to that inside source who spoke to Us Weekly about the event on Sunday, revealing the fact that the much-maligned political wannabe-candidate was clearly focusing more on his mental health after some particularly confusing and bizarre public events in the last couple weeks.
The insider said (below):
“Kanye has been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. He has been surrounded by a lot of people and started to feel really overwhelmed. Kanye decided to go to the hospital to get checked out. Upon his arrival, Kanye decided he’d rather be seen at home. He headed back to his home — an ambulance followed. Kanye was treated and his doctor says his vitals are normal. He’s feeling much better.”
Well that’s good, at least!
Of course, this follows the 43-year-old artist and performer’s move earlier in the day on Saturday to publicly apologize to his 39-year-old wife Kim Kardashian West in regards to his multiple public outbursts on Twitter and elsewhere over the previous week. All of that stemmed from his earlier public comments revealing the fact that the couple had at one point considered abortion before ultimately taking their first pregnancy to term, resulting in the birth of now-7-year-old daughter North West.
For now, then, it appears as though things remain relatively calm in the Equality State, with Kanye continuing to seek solace at the family’s ranch. He’d previously rebuffed Kim multiple times after she’d allegedly attempted to come out to visit him privately at the rural homestead, though celebs like Dave Chappelle and Justin Bieber have shown up in the interim, so… yeah.

Regardless, let’s just hope the hospital visit was the first of more good signs to come for Kanye, as he hopefully continues to listen to his body and focus on his personal health. Running for President isn’t exactly easy in the best and simplest of times, so here’s hoping he figures things out at home and among his family first before deciding to do whatever with his nascent presidential campaign…
