After flaking on his show at The Forum in LA on Sunday just a few hours before he was meant to go on stage, as well as turning up late to his gig on Saturday and then taking a dig at Jay Z and Beyonce, Kanye West has officially cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour.

Yep, Yeezy’s decided to pull the plug on the remaining shows he was due to play across North America for the rest of the year, reportedly because of “exhaustion.”

An insider told People magazine: “He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line.

“He’s a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work – which is extremely important to him – and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out. I’m sure Kim and his family played a part in the decision [to cancel the tour]. He’s incredibly devoted to his family.”

Others say he’s having a nervous breakdown, triggered by his marriage problems with Kim Kardashian among other things.

A friend told the New York Post: “There are fears he is having a nervous breakdown. He’s surrounded by all these crazy people, but there’s nobody he listens to or who can rein him in.

“He’s a mad genius, and he’s spiraling further and further out of control. Basically everything crazy he does is ‘art,’ so he is becoming more and more unpredictable.”

“Kim is fed up,” another friend told DailyMail.com. “They’ve been bickering constantly – she didn’t want Kanye to do the tour in the first place. She wanted him by her side as she recovered from her traumatic robbery in Paris.

“She lost days with him while he’s touring and then he made a rash decision to end the concert after ten minutes and go on a rant.

“He had a psychotic break. Kanye is very hot tempered and he’s very reactionary. A lot of times, he speaks before he thinks and he’s very sensitive.”

Maybe it’s a good idea to take a break then, Yeezy…
