“Just moments leading into the live show, and during the live show, Kanye had a meltdown and threatened to walk off,” a source who was there told Page Six.

“It had something to do with the set,” the source added. “Kim, who was in the audience with Kylie Jenner, had to come down. Lorne had to personally talk to Kanye. There were a few really tense minutes” (RELATED: Taylor Swift Just Blew Kanye West Away With This Acceptance Speech)

“He freaked out about how the set was arranged. He was saying he’s ‘the greatest artist.’ He’s having regular meltdowns. Everyone’s walking on eggshells around him. He’s under a lot of stress between the new album and the fashion line.” (RELATED: Kanye West To White People: ‘Please Don’t Comment On Black Music’)
