Kanye West has been having a rough go lately.

Kanye’s cousin, Lawrence Franklin, let it slip that West paid an unnamed family member $250 thousand to not leak an amateur sex tape of the rapper with an unknown woman. How did this anonymous family member find said video? Through an act of kindess on Ye’s part!!

Lawrence says the video was accidentally left behind on a laptop West gave said family member back in 2012, around the same time he and Kim Kardashian became romantically linked.
This shady move from a family member was what may have started Kanye’s trust issues. According to Lawrence,

“The sex tape episode started his decline – he stopped trusting people. At the end of the day if a member of your family had taken you for a quarter of a million dollars – so they can complete their own ambitions – who can you trust within your circle? This was also around the time when his mother has just died and he takes a lot of responsibility for that. When you go from being a regular person to being a huge star – and having all of these mounting issues and being completely void of the normalcy that you once had – it’s tough. Where do you go? Who do you trust at the end of the day?”

MOVING ON: Kanye’s Problems, part 2.

Several UCLA Medical Center Staffers are being investigated following West’s treatment and stay surrounding his alleged nervous break down last month.
TMZ has learned that between one and several dozen of the hospital’s employees thumbed through West’s medical info, or tried to. This is a huge breach of confidentiality on the Med Center’s behalf and it’s good to see they are taking this breach very seriously.
An inside source says that SEVERAL DOZEN people have been, or will be fired once the investigation wraps.
