The momager speaks!
As we reported, on Monday, Kanye West was hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation. In the past couple of days, the musician made headlines when he cancelled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo tour after a series of bizarre performances where he endorsed Donald Trump and criticized Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Right before news of his health broke out, mother-in-law Kris Jenner was interviewed by Extra TV at The Angel Ball in New York where she was asked about his defunct tour.

The KUWTK matriarch responded:
"He's exhausted he's just really tired. He's had a grueling tour and it's been a grind so he just needs some rest."
When asked about daughter Kim Kardashian West — who did not show up to the event — she said:
"It's a process, day by day."
The mother-of-two is still recovering from her traumatic October robbery where she was held at gunpoint inside of her Paris residence. While she was scheduled to attend the gala, she most likely bailed because of her husband's health.
On a positive note, Corey Gamble's girlfriend couldn't help but praise one of the event's host Denise Rich!
"Everything she's done for the Angel Ball and her daughter, she does everything in such a wonderful memory and tries to raise funds to really help with the cancer research… It's making a really good example. I think the girls do a lot in this area that they don't talk about so I think every once in a while it's important to be a voice and to be loud and to say this is what we want to do and to give back and we're just thrilled and honored that they're honoring Robert."
She is of course talking about the late Robert Kardashian who was honored at the gala.
To echo Kris's words, we truly hope Kanye gets the rest he needs.
