Kanye West’s Father Battling Prostate Cancer

Kanye West’s father has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, with TMZ the first to report the news.

According to TMZ, sources close to the “Ye” rapper’s father, Ray West, say earlier reports he was diagnosed with stomach cancer are inaccurate, and that he actually received a diagnosis of prostate cancer.

“We’re told Kanye dropped everything to help his dad upon hearing the news,” notes TMZ, reporting that the elder West is currently undergoing treatment in Los Angeles and is said to be “responding well.”

As TMZ points out, Ray and Kanye’s mother, Donda West (who passed away in 2007), divorced when he was just two; however, father and son have remained close throughout the years.
