Kim Kardashian West rushed to her husband’s side on Monday night.
Kardashian West was set to make her first public appearance since she was robbed at gunpoint during Paris Fashion Week. She and her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian, along with their mother Kris Jenner, were set to appear at the black tie gala The Angel Ball to honor their late father and husband, Robert Kardashian, when Kardashian West received the call that Kanye West was on his way to the hospital.
West was taken to the hospital via ambulance after police arrived at his home to do a welfare check. Before he was hospitalized, West was under the care of a physician for “severe sleep deprivation.”
“Kim was seen boarding a private jet to New York at around 5 a.m. L.A. time and had planned to make a late entrance to the gala, skipping the red carpet, to honor her father,” a source told Page Six. “But when she landed in New York, something was very wrong with Kanye, she turned around and headed straight back to L.A. to be at his side.”
Her mother and sisters still attended the event.
According to NBC News, no criminal activity was involved in the decision to hospitalize West. It was reportedly for “his own health and safety.”
