Lady Gaga tweets support for Kanye West

Lady Gaga tweets support for Kanye West

Lady Gaga has tweeted her support for Kanye West following his hospitalisation from exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles on Monday (21.11.16) after he cancelled the remaining dates of his 'Saint Pablo Tour' over concerns about his mental health, and the 'Perfect Illusion' hitmaker has taken to Twitter to urge her followers to "show compassion" for the star.

In a series of tweets posted on Wednesday (23.11.16), Gaga, 30, said: "It's not funny to joke about anyone's possible or not possible mental illness, this is a sensitive time for many. Let's be kind & loving.

"While I don't agree with everything he does I hope the public shows compassion and [love] for @kanyewest and each other. One love. One Race.

". @kanyewest i support & love u brother, I see in you bravery & courage to stop this tour & take care of YOU. You are a GREAT artist (sic)"

And the 'Million Reasons' singer isn't the first celebrity to speak out about the 'Gold Digger' rapper, as John Legend previously said he was "concerned" about his friend.

He said: "We were with Kim [Kardashian West; Kanye's wife] actually, you know, right before all of that. I was concerned by what I saw, so hopefully he's getting some rest and some time to figure things out."

Meanwhile, it was previously claimed that the 'Famous' hitmaker had been fighting against "darkness" for some time, and felt as though he was "under spiritual attack".

A source said: "He feels like he's under spiritual attack, and has been for a while. It's not just the big things; it's smaller, quieter things, internal things. You might think that it's about Kim's robbery, and while that didn't help, that's not what's going on here. He's dealing with a lot more subtle issues.

"Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It's exhausting, and it takes everything he's got. He's just so tired now; he's very low energy and feels like there's a grieving in his spirit. It's very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he's not the Ye that everyone knows ... He's in a very reflective place right now."
