Rapper-turned-reality star Jim Jones reacted to Kanye West's doctor using the alias "Jim Jones" when he placed the 39-year-old rapper on a 5150 psychiatric hold on Monday.
West was involuntarily admitted to the adult psychiatric ward at UCLA Medical Center on Monday after he allegedly attacked his personal trainer.
Dr. Michael Farzam, a concierge doctor who makes house calls, called 911 to report West was experiencing "temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration".
Upon learning that West was admitted to the hospital under his name, Jones took to Instagram.com to post some light-hearted banter.
But when pushed for a comment by messy gossip tabloid TMZ.com, Jones stupidly responded:
“I don’t know what’s on Kanye mind but that’s definitely a funny thing to me,” Jim Jones said. “But on a serious side, that’s kinda fucked up that he would use my name in such a manner. If people didn’t know it wasn’t him and they just thought it was Jim Jones doing the regular, crazy Jim Jones thing that could have got my ass in trouble. So for that alone, I should charge Kanye a sucker fee [laughs]. I don’t care about that type of shit.”
“I do need an apology I believe. Too scared to be in your own skin? Your name Kanye, my name Jim Jones. I didn’t know you wanted to trade lives. I wouldn’t want to be you anyway, not in my worst nightmare – I’m cool with who I am. I’m gonna start using his name. My new alias is Kanye West. I can’t wait to pull up to hotels, the Hermès stall and tell them Mr. West is outside.”
We know some rappers aren't very smart, but Jones takes the cake.
He should have known that Mr. West's house call doctor is the one who gave West the alias.
In his condition West probably had no idea what name the doctor used. Plus, it's highly doubtful that a house call doctor would know who Jim Jones was.
