While his family have rallied around him following his hospitalisation this week, much speculation has been made as to the impact the Kardashians have had on Kanye West's health.
Reflecting on the supposed pitfalls which have befallen men who have married into the family, some social media outlets have suggested that Kanye's decline in health was inevitable after becoming part of the Kardashian family.
And apparently rapper, Akon, is actually with them on this one.
"I actually thought about that, because at first it was a big joke to everybody," he said, according to TMZ.
"But in Africa there have always been sayings that sometimes you can’t deny what you see, but often times the eye may deceive you too." he said.
Acknowledging that the theory that the family are cursed sounds bizarre to many, Akon continued: "It’s hard to comment on something like that as much as the evidence may show you that that’s possible, you don’t wanna discredit it as it may just be bad luck."
While the Right Now singer was understandably reluctant to say too much on the subject, he did add: " I wouldn't deny it but I wouldn't promote it either. When you think about it, the evidence all points to it."
Kanye abruptly cancelled his tour before being hospitalised at the beginning of the week.
