“Popping Percocets” Lawsuit Uncovers Kanye’s Secret Drug Habit
This could end his life!
Kanye West is hiding a dangerous drug habit, according to his insurance company.
Lloyd’s of London, who is currently embroiled in a heated a $10 million lawsuit over unpaid funds from the cancellation of the Saint Pablo Tour, believes the rapper had consumed a cocktail of drugs prior to his 2016 mental breakdown and subsequent hospitalization. In email correspondents between the 40-year-old’s team and the insurance market’s lawyers obtained by Radar Online, Kanye is said to have used liquid marijuana, Ecstasy substitute 2C-B, anxiety drug Valium, and prescription painkillers Percocet and Demerol in the days leading up to the incident.
“There can certainly be no doubt that statements regarding purported drug use are worthy of investigation given the information contained in Mr. West’s medical records regarding the use of 2C-B, the testimony regarding marijuana and liquid marijuana, Percocet prescriptions, prescriptions for valium and Demerol (all in someone else’s name),” Lloyd’s of London attorney Wayne H. Hammack wrote in an email dated February 23, 2017.
The legal team also accused the father-of-two of boasting about using drugs in video footage obtained by lawyers. “Mr. West discussed ‘popping Percocets two at a time’ and stated words to the effect that ‘this is all about getting off of drugs, bad drugs,’” the email read.
An insider told In Touch the footage showed “a multi-day meltdown that includes crying fits, violence, wild behavior and the effects of sleep deprivation.”
Kanye’s own team even admitted the Grammy winner ingested an “unidentified drink” believed to be “drinkable marijuana” just four days before he was placed under an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold to prevent him from causing harm himself or other people. “Shockingly, a hip-hop artist has used marijuana (and consumed alcohol) for much of his life, with no ill effects,” Kanye’s own attorney, Howard E. King, wrote in an email on April 18, 2017.
He also allegedly took “14 doses” of Percocet in two weeks and received “prescribed injectable Demerol” prior to his hospitalization.
As a part of the messy lawsuit, Kim Kardashian also secretly testified on Kanye’s drug use. In a testimony made on December 13, 2016, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star confirmed her husband had used Percocet for a short time before the cancellation of the tour.

Kanye reportedly suffered “severe paranoia” and “hallucinations” and felt “profoundly depressed” before his hospitalization. Longtime friend John Legend, who visited the “Famous” emcee before his breakdown, said he was “concerned” over Kanye’s erratic behavior.
Yeezy was eventually sent to a private residence in Malibu to be secretly treated by a team of doctors. “He was under the care of a doctor and nursing team around the clock,” the insider told In Touch. “Kanye’s doctor also recommended six months of rest and ordered him not to leave the Pacific time zone. He was also to undergo extensive and ongoing therapy.”
Since then, Kanye’s insurance company refused to pay up and filed a countersuit, citing policy exclusions that include “pre-existing psychological conditions, possession of illegal drugs, prescription drugs not taken as medically prescribed, and the consumption of alcohol rendering the insured unfit to perform.”
