Kanye West leaves hospital, nine days after breakdown

RAPPER Kanye West has reportedly left hospital after nine days of treatment following his mental breakdown.

West was admitted to UCLA Medical Center after suffering "exhaustion" while with a personal trainer on November 21.

He is now understood to be home with his wife Kim Kardashian West.

TMZ reports West's breakdown came as the rapper struggled with the anniversary of his mother's funeral, which was the day before his admission.

West's admission also came after he ranted to and about long-time friends Jay-Z and Beyonce, complaining they had not called him.

Soon after he cancelled remaining dates on his 63-show "Saint Pablo Tour".

US Weekly reported earlier in the week that West was attempting to record music while in hospital.

Such a feat would not be a first for the rapper, who rapped on his debut single "Through the wire" while his jaw was wired shut following a car accident in October 2002.

The song went on to be nominated for 2005 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
