Kanye West has made it known that he values his privacy, so it's safe to say that if it were up to him, nobody ever would have found out that he called an ailing fan in the hospital to grant her final wish. But a Twitter user by the name of Debbie revealed the news on Jan. 3, saying that West personally rapped for the young fan before her death.

What began as a benign tweet from a fan of the Kardashian family, @MyleezaKardash, turned into an emotional reveal. Debbie replied to the original tweet, stating, "This girl in my town had cancer and Kanye called her a couple days ago to rap for her. I think Kim [Kardashian West] was there too. Wasn't even blasted on social media or anything. She passed yesterday. I have so much respect for him tho. Making her happy in her last moments."

Kim Kardashian West, Kanye's wife, confirmed Debbie's account by quoting her tweet and adding "We are praying for her family" with a prayer hands emoji. No details as to when, where, or how Kanye came to know the fan are available, and neither is the fan's identity. Check out the exchange below.
