It's been reported that Kanye West has been released from hospital.

The rapper was hospitalised last week, when he was taken to UCLA Medical Centre, apparently suffering from 'temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration'.

After being kept in for longer than expected to treat his ‘exhaustion and paranoia’, TMZ claims that West was released under the care of his wife, Kim Kardashian, and his personal doctor.

Prior to his release, it was reported that West had requested that recording equipment be brought to hospital so that he could continue to work on his music.

West’s hospitalisation came after a dramatic few weeks as he cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, after a concert in Sacramento where he controversially cut his set short after just 30 minutes.

That was after a lengthy tirade against Beyoncé, claiming that her husband and West's former friend and collaborator Jay Z had the means to have him killed.

West also caused controversy and split opinion when he admitted that he 'would have voted for Donald Trump' in the US Presidential Election in November.
