Kanye West’s recent hospitalization wasn’t a result of drug and alcohol abuse, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “ridiculous.”

The rapper has been undergoing treatment for exhaustion and other mental health issues at UCLA Medical Center for more than a week. And now according to the National Enquirer, the rapper’s “lethal addiction” to illicit substances is what landed him in the hospital. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Kanye’s drugs of choice are cocaine and booze, Hennessy specifically. He’s got big problems.”

The outlet’s dubious insider further purports that Kim Kardashian is aware of her husband’s supposed “drug binges,” and it’s caused problems in their marriage. “Kanye would go to a drug den hangout in West Hollywood to get away from everything,” adds the webloid’s questionable source. “He’d disappear for days or weeks at a time. Him and Kim had huge bust-ups over it.”

The publication’s seemingly phony insider goes on to allege West was “high as a kite” at the time of his hospitalization last week, and had also been “high for days” prior to a doctor intervening. But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for the rapper, who exclusively assures us he’s “never been a drug user,” and the magazine’s report is completely “ridiculous.” We’re further told West’s health issues aren’t at all related to drugs or alcohol, and this is simply a non-story.
