Kanye West Is Reportedly Living The Hermit Life On A Mountaintop In Wyoming

He has a good reason, though.

Ever since Kanye West deleted his Instagram and Twitter accounts without warning on Friday, fans couldn't help but wonder what's been going on with the rapper, who's been increasingly withdrawn these last few weeks.

Recent reports led some to speculate that Kanye deleted his social media because of marital problems at home, while some theorized that West was heading toward another mental break, but TMZ reports that the real reason is much less dramatic than all that.

Sources close to the rapper told TMZ that Kanye's behavior has changed because he's concentrating on creating new music. West is reportedly holed up on a mountaintop in Wyoming, working on his next album. Deleting his social media and neglecting to show his face at high-profile public events like the Met Gala were all part of his overall effort to "disconnect" and better get into the zone.

Makes sense, right? Still, we'll miss Kanye's Twitter gems. Hopefully this break doesn't forever.
