Kanye West to Check into Rehab?

Kanye West has been a permanent fixture in the media since his rude on-stage attack on Taylor Swift. But his issues may be a little deeper than just his pure need for attention.

Rumor has it Kanye is considering checking into rehab! According to Star, Kanye has been boozing ever since his mother Donda died one day after receiving a tummy tuck in November 2007.

An insider tells the mag, “His drinking is getting worse — and when he has too much, he can be mean and obnoxious. If he doesn’t get help soon, things could really spiral out of control.”

Apparently he’s planning on checking in after his Fame Kills tour with Lady Gaga wraps up in January. “Kanye’s afraid to go to rehab, but he knows he needs help and is taking steps in the right direction.”

In addition, our Hollyscoop spies witnessed Kanye at Hollywood hotspot Capitol City on September 22nd when he attended Seth MacFarlane’s premiere party for The Cleveland Show.

Our source says a waitress approached the table Kanye was sitting at, and handed him a white wine. "Kanye must have wanted something a little stronger because he sent back the wine in exchange for a lemon drop martini."

The stronger liquor must have gotten Kanye into party mode, because our eyewitness says he was overly touchy-feely with girlfiend Amber, and we’ll just say there was major PDA from them.

The source says Kanye was "in good spirits, laughing and joking with people, and taking pics with everyone around him."

This account comes just two weeks after Kanye was accompanied by a bottle of Hennessy on the VMA carpet. Rumor has it he was in such a drunken stupor that he doesn’t even remember storming the stage.

Kanye obviously needs to do something about his lifestyle. He’s becoming such an unlikable person. Death is always hard for people to deal with, and rehab seems like the right step for him.
