Kanye West Reportedly Bonds With Dad Following Cancer Diagnosis

Kanye West and his father Ray West reportedly are getting closer to each other days after news surfaced that the older man has been diagnosed with cancer.

Recall that news of the condition was confirmed to BET by a family member who said that West’s condition is very serious but is getting treatment after learning of the disease in the spring.

“His dad is sick with stomach cancer,” said Cheryl Carmichael West, Kanye’s one-time stepmother. “He’s getting treatment and from what I understand the treatments are working.”

Now, TMZ reports that Ye and his father, both of whom had never had real close relationship as compared to his closeness to his late mother Donda West, are making attempts to bond again.

Ray West is currently receiving treatment for prostate cancer in Los Angeles, and he reportedly is now spending time with Ye, Kim Kardashian and their three children.

TMZ says:

“We’re told while Ye and his Pops have never had a bad relationship, it’s just been distant with Ray living in Chicago. So, they’re taking advantage of the situation now, which has allowed them to bond… Kanye dropped everything to get his father the best medical treatment possible in L.A. once he got the cancer news

And, from what we’ve heard, Ray’s responding well to treatment and it looks like he’s going to be okay. “
