Kanye West reportedly left the UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday after more than a week of hospitalization, according to the Los Angeles Times.

West is now at home with wife Kim Kardashian West and their children, reports TMZ, which first broke the news that the rapper left the hospital. He is, apparently, not completely in the clear yet. According to TMZ, West will need ongoing psychological and medical treatment following his reported “nervous breakdown.”

It was reported on Monday, his originally planned release date, that West was “still not stable” enough to leave the hospital. Details on his hospitalization have not yet been released, with reports ranging from extreme paranoia to exhaustion.

Kanye West Cancels All Remaining ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour Dates

West was hospitalized on Nov. 21, after the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call of a “disturbance,” and found a “medical emergency” upon arrival, a LAPD spokesperson told Variety at the time.

The hospitalization followed a tumultuous week for West. Days before, West declared at a concert that if he voted in the election, he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump. The statement was largely met with boos from the crowd.

Later that week, he generated more controversy by launching into a rant about Beyonce, Jay Z, Mark Zuckerberg, Google, and more at a Sacramento show. The hashtag #KanyeIsOverParty began trending shortly after the rant hit social media. The morning he was hospitalized, it was announced that he would be canceling the remaining 21 dates on his Saint Pablo tour.
