Two months after being hospitalised for exhaustion and still recovering from memory loss, Kanye West is expected to make his first major public appearance at New York Fashion Week.
West, who was hospitalised after abruptly canceling the remainder of his Pablo"tour following a week of curtailed concerts and rants about politics, is expected to be at Wednesday's New York presentation of his latest Yeezy collection of high-end athleisure wear for sports brand Adidas.
Music producer Malik Yusef says he has visited the rapper recently and West was focused on his recovery and spending time with his two young children with wife, reality star Kim Kardashian.
"His memory's coming back," said Yusef, who worked with West on "The Life of Pablo" album that was nominated for eight Grammy awards.
The fashion event is likely to be a family affair for West. Kim Kardashian posted on social media on Tuesday that she was on her way to New York.
West has kept a low public profile in recent months, although he did meet with then President-elect Donald Trump in New York in January and posed for photos afterward.
