TMZ reports that officials at the UCLA Medical Center are in the process of firing several employees who allegedly violated the privacy of Kanye West, who spent more than a week in the hospital last month following a reported bout of “temporary psychosis.

Several members of the Medical Center staff reportedly tried to gain access to West’s files—perhaps to sell info to TMZ?—leading hospital officials to begin an investigation. According to TMZ’s sources, some firings have either already taken place or will happen once the investigation is over.

Since leaving UCLA Medical Center, West has mostly kept a low profile, except for that 15-minute chat about life he had with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower last week.
