Kanye West cries his eyes out in Paris

Kanye West kicked off his European tour in Paris this weekend, and it was an emotional return to the stage after the sudden death of his mother. Dr. Donda West died last week at the age of 58 following complications from cosmetic surgery performed by an uncertified Los Angeles doctor.

At the end of the concert, Kanye began to dedicate the final song to his mother, but broke down in tears before completing the dedication. According to one concert-goer, “he just lost it.” Members of the band came out to help him off stage, where he took a 15 minute break and came back to finish with a rousing performance of “Stronger.”

The hip-hop artist canceled performances scheduled for today, and returned to the US where his mother will be buried on Tuesday. He then returns to Europe on Thursday to continue with the tour.
