A little over a week after hospitalized for his own safety, Kanye West has reportedly checked out of UCLA Medical Center.

According to TMZ, West is reportedly back at home with his wife Kim Kardashian West and their two children. West was said to be suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation, which led to what TMZ is calling a nervous breakdown. While in the hospital, West was said to be "very paranoid" but was also insistent on working on his music.

The L.A. Times said West left UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday. He was admitted on November 21, the same day he abruptly canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour. The cancellation came in the days following onstage rants on his tour, where he called out Jay Z and Beyonce and said he would have voted for Donald Trump.
