Is Kanye West imploding before our eyes?
According to Page Six, Kanye had an epic meltdown while at Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Sources say the situation got SO bad, he almost didn't take the stage!
The latest fit comes on the heels of slamming Taylor Swift in a misogynist rant and an explosive Wiz Khalifa feud. The incident also preceded West claiming he's $53 million dollars in debt.

So, why did Kanye freak out?
Insiders claim the rapper became upset once he learned the SNL crew minimized his elaborate set to just a video screen and not much else. For all those that follow Yeezy, this is a BIG deal… the stage means everything!
A confidante elaborated on the tense situation:
"Just moments leading into the live show, and during the live show, Kanye had a meltdown and threatened to walk off. It had something to do with the set. Kim, who was in the audience with Kylie Jenner, had to come down. Lorne had to personally talk to Kanye. There were a few really tense minutes."
OMG, what a dramatic situation! And SO predictable…
The source went on to add:
"He freaked out about how the set was arranged. He was saying he's ‘the greatest artist.' He's having regular meltdowns. Everyone's walking on eggshells around him. He's under a lot of stress between the new album and the fashion line."
Hmm, since Ye has been having tantrums for YEARS, we're not sure this can just be attributed to stress about his fashion line!
Either way, we're glad Mr. West didn't bail on the staff and Melissa McCarthy… it would have sucked for everyone who worked so hard on the show!
