Kanye West is NOT in a good place ...

The rapper/clothing designer looked depressed and hollow at dinner Saturday night with wife Kim Kardashian at a sushi joint in Calabasas. Our photographer on the scene tells us, "Kanye looked distracted and overly-mellow. Kim was kind of leading him around and he just looked out of it."

Ever since Kanye's Yeezy Season 5 show Wednesday at New York Fashion Week seemed to flop, the designer has been a bit "off," according to an X17 source: "Kanye toned down this year's show from previous seasons, not making it this big, splashy thing, in hopes that it would give him less stress and less anxiety but when the reviews came back negative, it sent him to a bad place. And Kim's worried about his mental stability."

To make matters worse, hitmaker Drake recently clapped back at Kanye for the Life of Pablo rapper's comments during his tour last year, calling Drake's "One Dance" single "overplayed."

Speaking to DJ Semtex on OVO Radio, Drake said:

    "I think everybody has their own little things going on, I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time, as in the same breath, I went from being… like working on a project with him, to him sort of publicly s****ing on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much. But yeah I'm not really sure, everybody's got their own thing going on. Again me when I hear that, I just distance myself from it you know, alright if that's what it is I don't really even understand the point you're trying to make but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it, I don't respect it at all. You know cos I feel like me and Khaled are just good people, I'm not sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night."

Dredging this up again certainly isn't going to make Kanye's life any easier. The rapper clearly hates bad press and takes everything like this personally. Let's hope he can move past it!
