Kanye West: How He's Doing Nearly One Year After Mental Breakdown

by at .

Can you believe it's almost been one whole year since Kanye West had his breakdown?

It doesn't seem like it's been that long at all, but then again, time flies when you have as much drama as the Kardashian family does.

Seriously, in the time since Kanye's breakdown, he and Kim have found a surrogate and are expecting their third child, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have gotten pregnant.

The whole family has had a falling out with Caitlyn Jenner, Scott Disick has been on his scariest downward spiral yet.

Kendall Jenner has found herself in a series of pickles, and there have been more plastic surgery rumors than you can shake a stick at, for the whole lot of them.

There's been a ton of stuff happening with these people, -- keeping up with them takes more than a lame one-hour television show, we'll tell you that much.

With that constant stream of information on these people, it makes it hard to remember what happened when, or to keep tabs on the family members with less of a public presence.

And remember, ever since that breakdown of his, Kanye has mostly stayed out of the limelight.

But thanks to a wonderful new report from Us Weekly, we have an update on Kanye and his mental health.

And great news: he's doing great!

"Kanye is in a good place right now," a source claims. "He's working on his music and laying low."

Not only that, but "He's been focused on staying calm and not doing anything to mess his mindset up. He's in the zone."

"He's the best he's ever been -- he's very stable," the source continues.

"There haven't been any manic outbursts. You're going to see a calm Kanye who is taking it day by day."

On another happy note, the insider adds that "He and Kim are stronger than ever," too.

Not too bad, huh? Especially considering that not too long ago, Kanye was allegedly suffering from severe mental illness and you couldn't get on the internet without seeing stories about his impending divorce.

We still don't know all the details about what happened last year, or if there was any real truth to all the Kimye divorce rumors.

We do know that in the weeks before his breakdown, Kanye was behaving pretty strangely -- he bashed former close friends Jay Z and Beyonce in emotional rants during concerts.

He also expressed his support for Donald Trump more than once, which was alarming, to say the least.

Some reports claimed that his issues were simply.due to exhaustion, while others claimed that he was depressed and paranoid and possibly violent.

A popular theory was that Kanye was deeply shaken by Kim's Paris robbery, and that the anniversary of his mother's death just a few weeks later pushed him over the edge.

As for the divorce rumors, most sources said that Kim and Kanye's problems were also started by the robbery -- she felt like he wasn't there for her like she needed him to be because of his own issues.

But hey, at this point, all of this seems like water under the bridge, right?

Congrats on all the progress, Kanye!
