Kanye Admits He Was Once Suicidal…

In a recent Watch the Throne concert performance in Los Angeles, CA, KANYE WEST revealed to the audience that five years ago he was suicidal, and was losing control of his life after the passing of his mother, Dr. Donda West.

WEST claims that his depression in trying to cope, was the cause for the whole TAYLOR SWIFT incident, and all the criticisms of his actions that followed, prompted the ‘College Dropout’ rapper to step away from the spotlight.

“I will not give up on life again. There’s so many people that will never get the chance to have their voice heard… I do it for them,” says WEST to Hollywood Scoop.

    I wonder if he ever went through counseling of any kind. Depression can be very hard to deal with on your own. It’s good to have a counselor that supports you and understands where you’re coming from. Maybe that’s how he was able to pull out of his depression.

    I’ve heard of that happening a lot. I’m dreading the day I lose my mother and I can definitely see how depression can come into play. I’m glad he got through it. http://www.parkcenter.org/adult_services.htm
