by | 30th July 2018

Over the weekend Kanye West‘s father Ray West had reportedly been diagnosed with stomach cancer and was undergoing treatment.


Now TMZ are reporting Kanye West’s father, Ray West, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.


Kanye reportedly ‘dropped everything’, cancelling his immediate plans, to be by the side of his father when the doctors delivered the news.


It is understood Ray West is currently in hospital and is believed to be responding well to treatment.


The news comes only days after Kanye found himself being rushed to the emergency room by his wife, Kim Kardashian, following a health scare. He also recently revealed that he was diagnosed with a mental condition and contemplated suicide.


West’s mother, Donda, with whom he was very close, died roughly ten years ago. She and Ray divorced when Kanye was very young, but reportedly remained very close throughout his childhood. However, Kanye attributed his mental breakdown to his mother’s death.
