Over the last few days, Kanye West reappeared, returning to Twitter with a series of disturbing tweets and a strange interview on the radio.
But many people who are close to the 40-year-old rapper tell PEOPLE that his private behavior also gave cause for concern. According to several sources, West has broken contact with many members of his immediate circle, including his managers, lawyers and closest friends – and has had several disputes with his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner.
Sources say that West will be so happy about his latest projects that sometimes he forgets to respect other people's boundaries.
"I do not know if I've ever seen him like that," says a friend of West PEOPLE. "He's everywhere." Excited, loud, he sleeps very little and writes at any time of the day or night, developing ideas, sending them to people and instructing everyone to drop everything and work together, he really feels that it's the most exciting stuff World is. "
" He will have something in his head – a lyric or even a phrase, and he is so excited that he sends it 23 texts about it at 2:30 in the morning " , continues the friend. "It's as if he's discovered a cure for cancer, he's so excited, and what he wants you to do is acknowledge that excitement and give it back to him."
"Everyone is great, terribly worried," says one other source close to source. "He just looks at you with a void, it's like he's dumb and can not talk and he's just staring at you." As he says things with such affirmation, he really believes that he's God and a genius and that he can do it all alone. "
However, another Western source says the rapper's behavior is not unusual. 19659002] "I think many of these things are Kanye," says West Source. "He has always been like this, Kanye is definitely the most ingenious and eccentric and unpredictable person I've ever met."
"Kanye is a person who is naturally very high-powered, and really active and uses up a lot of energy and work and work and work … and then against a wall, "the source continues. "I've seen it a million times, I've seen him fall asleep just because he pushed himself and did not sleep properly – that's Kanye's."
"He wants to get involved," he says Friend. "He wants to be nice, he wants to talk to you, but it's just a little bit away, like he's overly excited about things that are not really that exciting, Kanye can try, if he's like that, it's very hard Now to deal with it. "
In late 2016, West was hospitalized for exhaustion after canceling his Saint Pablo tour. Fans saw Kim Kardashian West, 37, Keeping Up Collapse with the Kardashians earlier this year, as footage of this difficult time was broadcast.
The West Spring – who says the star seemed "great" A phone call last week – adds that the rapper's actions on his health problems are also seen "through a different lens".
Several sources insist that West's behavior is alarming but not dangerous – and that Kardashian West is doing its best to be supportive.
"Kim tries to control him and the situation, but he can not be controlled," the source says about the couple's parents being 3-month-old Chicago, Saint, 2, and North, 4½. "She's trying her best to support him on social media and show a different side of things, but it just does not work."
"I have to be clear: Everyone is close by," the friend adds. "Kanye says she is fine, that she is part of his process, he loves her a lot, and he is also very enthusiastic about the children, he talks nonstop about them, so if you take what he says, everything is in Okay, but Kim is right to be worried. "
" But the truth is, people are rightly worried, "says the friend. "He does not behave well and seems to be on the sidelines, I hope and pray that he can do it."
