Kim Kardashian reportedly skipped the Angel Ball in New York on Monday (Nov. 21) to rush back to L.A. where her husband Kanye West is hospitalized with exhaustion. 

The Angel Ball, a charity gala which is honoring Kardashian’s late father Robert, was set to be the celebrity’s first major public appearance since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris on Oct. 3. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Kardashian landed in New York then turned around after learning Kanye was suffering with a medical complaint. A rep for Kardashian declined to comment.

Kanye was hospitalized on Monday (Nov. 21) and put under observation at a Los Angeles-area hospital. A source tells Billboard that West has been suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation and went to the hospital of his own will and under the consultation of his physician.

The hip-hop star is coming off a bizarre weekend. The artist was booed at his own show when he announced he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump, he called out Beyonce and Jay Z, cut a concert short (a makeup show for a previous cancelation) and nixed the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour

Kardashian’s sisters Khloé and Kourtney and her mom Kris Jenner attended the black-tie fundraiser on Monday night, People reports. When asked how the couple was doing, Jenner simply smiled and said, "They're good," according to the AP.
