Kanye West was released this week from UCLA Medical Center, where he took eight days to recuperate after canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour in the wake of several on-stage meltdowns. An insider said he had been suffering from "paranoia" and was under "constant watch" as doctors treated him.

Now, a sources has told TMZ that there is a possible explanation for West's erratic and at times disturbing behavior: a sudden shift in medication. According to these individuals, the rapper has "psychological issues" for which he takes unspecified drugs, but that he either stopped taking some of his pills or otherwise deviated from the prescribed dosage or schedule. They said "the biggest changes" came after his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry in Paris, also causing West to cut a concert short.

As several outlets have reported, Kanye still hasn't returned home after stabilizing somewhat; instead he's living in a rented house, apart from Kim and their children North and Saint, while receiving outpatient treatment. "Now that he is out of the hospital and not under 24/7 watch," he will once again need to regulate his medication for himself, the Guardian noted. No doubt he'll also benefit, as will we all, from finally getting free of the cursed year 2016.
