"When his mom suddenly passed away, Kanye was all alone. Having Kim and the kids around helps in difficult situations."

Kanye previously suggested he blames himself for his mother's death.

The rap star claimed Donda - who underwent surgery at a Los Angeles-area hospital - would still have been alive if he hadn't decided to relocate.
