Kanye West reportedly fired 30 of his staff members in a “massive meltdown.”

It seems 2016 has brought little but bad news for the Kardashian West household.

The latest to emerged in the wake of Kim Kardashian’s alleged robbery are the events that allegedly transpired after her husband Kanye West’s ill-fated runway show earlier this year.

A source told Page Six the 39-year-old rapper suffered a breakdown in the aftermath of the show that saw him fire his entire team of staff.

“He had his agent fire all 30 of his staff after the fashion show and got rid of his phone so people can only contact him via e-mail,” they said.

The source – claiming to be an insider – said the seemingly drastic measures came as a result of poor mental health.

“He had a nervous breakdown after the show, and that’s what triggered it all,” they said.

The Yeezy runway show during New York Fashion Week faced mass criticism for its poor execution and dangerous conditions.

Onlookers captured models suffering from heat exhaustion, dirty conditions in tour buses, huge queues and a general apathetic feel.

Another source refuted the claims West had a ‘nervous breakdown’ and instead insisted he was disappointed but reflective.

“He didn’t have a ‘nervous breakdown.’ Some people got let go, and there was a reorganisation of others who he moved back to the music side of things. He’s a grown-up,” they said.

“He was reflective and disappointed in how things went . . . He took stock in what people were saying and he was disappointed.”

The source went on to comment on the alleged disposal of his phone.

“And as far as throwing away his cellphone? If he did, then it’s not the first time. He always does that.”

West has stayed silent since the events transpired in Paris with no comment on any form of social media. Yet if we know anything about Kanye West, it can only be a matter of time.
