Kanye West: Ryan Seacrest says rapper is doing better
There might not be a family happier to say goodbye to 2016 than the Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian West was the victim of a horrific armed robbery in Paris in early October and her husband Kanye West was recently hospitalized for undisclosed mental health issues after canceling the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour.
The Kardashian family has gone through almost every up and down, and one non-family member has been there with them the whole time — Ryan Seacrest, executive producer of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the Kardashians’ close family friend.
“I’ve spoken to Kim. I’ve not spoken to Kanye, but I think that things are going better now,” Seacrest told PEOPLE on Friday night at 102.7 KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball at the Staples Center. West, 39, was released from UCLA’s Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital earlier this week and is now living apart from his wife and children while he receives outpatient care.
The Kardashians are no stranger to the rumor mill but there was a piece of gossip about the show Seacrest wants to put to rest. Despite West’s recent medical problems, it hasn’t interrupted the family’s filming schedule for their E! reality show.
“There have been some reports that we halted production. We did stop for a little bit, briefly, after the Paris incident, but since then we’ve been back in full production,” he said. “We’re shooting season 13.”
As they saying goes, “The show must go on,” and that includes Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
