Kanye West cancels engagements after hearing of father’s ill health

Kanye West’s father has reportedly been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker has decided to cancel any plans he had in place in order to help out with his beloved dad Ray West after he found out he had the disease.

According to TMZ, Ray is being treated for the illness in Los Angeles, California, and is said to be responding well to treatment. Ray’s cancer battle comes roughly 10 years after Kanye sadly lot his mother Donda to coronary artery disease and he admitted back in 2016 that his mental down was triggered by the death of his mum as the 10-year anniversary was fast approaching.

Although he’s determined to be there for his father – who divorced his mother Donda when Kanye was still a child – the 41-year-old rapper has been battling his own issues as he admitted recently that he’s previously contemplated ending his own life.

Kanye – who has three children; North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, seven months, with his wife Kim Kardashian West – said: “Oh yeah, I’ve thought about killing myself all the time. It’s always an option. Like Louis C.K. said: ‘I flip through the manual. I weigh all the options. I’m just having this epiphany now, ’cause I didn’t do it, but I did think it all the way through. But if I didn’t think it all the way through, then it’s actually maybe more of a chance of it happening.’ ”

He was also rushed to hospital by his wife Kim recently with a nasty bout of flu.

Taking to his Twitter account, he said: “I had a sinus headache on a flight once and I got a f***ing cat scan after because it was so bad.”
