Kanye then asks him to tell a joke, “something to lift our spirits.” Dave says he is still on his first cup of coffee and needs time to come up with a good joke. “Uplifting joke? You know I don’t write them!” he says.
They share some laughs and a hug before Kanye tells Dave, “I love you, bro. Thanks for coming out and checking on me.”
“Anytime, bro,” responds Dave.
On Monday evening, Kanye sent out a series of disconcerting tweets where he called out his wife and mother-in-law, Kris Jenner. “Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” he tweeted. “If I get locked up like Mandela… Ya’ll will know why.”
He also compared his life to the movie Get Out. “Everybody knows the movie get out is about me,” added Ye.
A source tells PEOPLE that Kim “has been trying to get Kanye help for weeks,” but he has refused it. “But what do you do when a person doesn’t want help?” the source says. “Kanye is in Cody because he doesn’t want help. If he wanted help, he would come back to L.A.”
