Did Kanye West Have A ‘Nervous Breakdown’ After Panned NYFW Show?
Kanye West reportedly had something of a meltdown after his New York Fashion Week Yeezy show was widely panned.
Kanye West Breakdown?
The unveiling of Yeezy Season 4 went off with more than one hitch last month. West’s show ended up receiving more attention for its inconvenience, dullness and disorganization than for the fashion on display. West, according to some insiders, took the bad press even worse than could be expected.
“He had his agent fire all 30 of his staff after the fashion show and got rid of his phone so people can only contact him via email,” an insider told the New York Post’s PageSix. “He had a nervous breakdown after the show, and that’s what triggered it all.”
Others close to the rapper and fashion designer claim that while West was disappointed in how the show went off, there was no breakdown. The insider also conceded that West did fire some people and may have disposed of his phone.
“He didn’t have a ‘nervous breakdown.’ Some people got let go, and there was a reorganization of others who he moved back to the music side of things. He’s a grownup. He was reflective and disappointed in how things went,” the source said. “He took stock in what people were saying and he was disappointed. But he’s more determined than ever to get that stuff right. And as far as throwing away his cellphone? If he did, then it’s not the first time. He always does that.”
West is currently on his Saint Pablo Tour.
