Lady Gaga writes heartfelt message of support to “brother” Kanye West and calls for an end to jokes
Lady Gaga wrote a heartfelt message to Kanye West following his hospitalisation for ‘psychiatric evaluation’ on Monday.
The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre after he cancelled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour over concerns about his health.
Following in the footsteps of many other famous faces, the Perfect Illusion singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to urge her followers to “show compassion” for the star.
In a series of tweets, 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)”
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 the Famous star 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.”
