Kanye West has some company in Wyoming following his Twitter meltdown, but it’s not his family checking in on him … it’s Dave Chappelle.
The rapper says Dave hopped on a jet to come see him “doing well” on the ranch, and called him a “God send and a true friend.” The great, warm, friendly visit did come with one slightly awkward moment.
Kanye got Dave, and a few other friends there, to gather around for a video … and then put the comedian on the spot to come up with something funny — y’know, to make everyone laugh.
It was, apparently, pretty early in the day, ’cause Dave said he wasn’t in funny mode yet, but watch … of course they found their way to a punchline.
As we reported … Kanye went on a wild rant Monday night, firing off several tweets that accused his wife, Kim Kardashian, of trying to have him involuntarily committed to a mental hospital.
He also blasted Kris Jenner for allegedly influencing some of Kim’s past career moves — i.e. posing for Playboy and selling her sex tape — and compared his life to “Get Out.”
Assuming Dave touched down in Wyoming Tuesday morning — as Kanye inferred — he went pretty far out of his way to help his buddy. We’re told Dave’s been doing “invite-only” comedy gigs near his home in Ohio.
Dave flying out couldn’t come at a better time for Ye — as we’ve told you, many people close to him say he’s in the midst of a serious bipolar episode.
No such thing as a bad time to chill with Chappelle, but this is a particularly good time.
