Kanye West’s father diagnosed with cancer
Kanye West’s father has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, even if he was initially thought to be battling stomach cancer. According to TMZ, the rapper is at his dad’s side as he gets treatment in Los Angeles.
Ray West is apparently responding well to treatment, but the All Mine hitmaker hasn’t released an official statement about the matter. Sources say the rapper – who has lost his mother 11 years ago – has dropped everything to support his dad during his health crisis.
Kanye’s parents split when Kanye was just three-years-old. She tragically passed in 2007 at the age of 58 suffering cardiac arrest while undergoing plastic surgery.
Her unexpected death has had a profound impact on West, with may attributing his 2016 breakdown was provoked by the anniversary of his mother’s death.
