Kanye West has been spotted for the first time since his hospitalisation, after he visited an art exhibit sporting blonde hair.

The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre last month after suffering from sleep deprivation and exhaustion, and was discharged last week to continue medical treatment in the privacy of his own home.


On Thursday (09.12.16) the 'Bound 2' hitmaker was photographed for the first time since his ordeal - which saw him cancel 21 dates of his 'Saint Pablo Tour' - as he visited an art exhibit in Los Angeles. In a photo posted on Instagram by artist Giovanni Bassan, the 'Famous' rapper can be seen sporting newly dyed blonde hair, and looked relaxed as he sat backstage at MOCA's Pacific Design Centre.

The photo - which was posted to Giovanni's private account and made public by multiple sources - was reportedly captioned: "K s in da house (sic)"

The news of the 'Gold Digger' singer's venture out of the house comes after it was previously reported the Kanye - who shares three-year-old daughter North and 12-month-old son Saint with wife Kim Kardashian West - was feeling more relaxed now that he's returned to his Bel-Air mansion. Kanye has even built a temporary studio in his mansion and is now making new music, according to the gossip website TMZ.


But the decision to launch himself back into his work might not come as a surprise to his famous family, as he reportedly wanted to work on his music and clothing line whilst he was still recovering in hospital. A source said: "Kanye keeps wanting to work. At the hospital, he requested that recording equipment be brought to the hospital so he can record in his bed. And he has kept asking to see sketches of his fashion lines. "He continues to want to work and Kim has to keep telling him to rest."
