What will Kim Kardashian do about this?
Kanye West‘s outrageous behavior has always made headlines, but the rapper is now embroiled in a drug scandal that puts him front and center of the spotlight. After filing a $10 million lawsuit against Lloyd’s of London for unpaid funds, stemming from the cancellation of the Saint Pablo Tour, it’s come to light that the rapper may have axed the entire trek due to heavy drug use.
A shocking video that exposes Kanye’s struggle with “bad drugs” has been circulating around his inner circle, and sources say its content can possibly ruin his marriage with Kim Kardashian. As Ye continues to fight his insurance company, more and more details about his secret lifestyle are surfacing.
Kanye West suffered a breakdown last year in the middle of his Saint Pablo tour, forcing him to cancel his engagements as he sought help at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Though it was said at the time that the rapper had canceled due to sleep deprivation and exhaustion, a newly unearthed video taken just days before his hospitalization suggests drugs may have played a part in his infamous breakdown.
Earlier this week, Kanye filed a $10 million lawsuit against Lloyd’s of London, demanding the insurance company pay up for his canceled tour. In the legal documents, the 40-year-old claimed he was suffering from a “debilitating medical condition” that prevented him from performing.
However, the insurers are refusing to pay, alleging his mental meltdown was caused by substance abuse. They claim the footage of Kanye’s erratic behavior shot before his hospitalization shows evidence of his substance abuse.
The Damning Video
According to Radar Online, Kanye commented in the damning video, “This is all about me getting off drugs, bad drugs.” The rapper also allegedly spoke about popping prescription painkillers.
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 team was so concerned about it leaking that they refused to let it out of their control,” the source said. “The company argued that Kanye’s comments in the video…clearly triggered the prescription drug exclusion in the policy.”
