Kanye West has reportedly been bonding with his father Ray since he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The rapper and his dad allegedly became distant due to Ray living in Chicago, but are said to have grown closer since Ray began receiving treatment at a hospital in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old is spending quality time with Ray in hospital and has been bringing his three children North, five, Saint, two, and six-month-old Chicago for visits, sources told TMZ.

'Ray's been able to spend time with him, Kim and his three grandkids,' a source told the online publication on Wednesday. 

The insider also alleged that Ray has been responding well to the treatment and is on the road to recovery.   

Daily Mail has contacted Kanye's representative for comment. 

Kanye has allegedly been at Ray's side since the diagnosis. Mr West is not suffering from stomach cancer as Radar.com had previously reported.

Ray and Kanye's mother Donda split when the rapper was three-years-old.

Donda tragically passed in 2007 at the age of 58 suffering cardiac arrest while undergoing plastic surgery.

Her unexpected death has had a profound impact on West, with many claiming his 2016 breakdown was provoked by the anniversary of his mother's death.

Kanye and Ray were last seen together in March getting lunch in Malibu. 

Radar.com reported on Friday that Mr. West was dealing with stomach cancer, which is in most cases a far more fatal form of disease.

The information came from Ray's ex wife and Kanye's stepmother Cheryl Carmichael West.

She also said: 'He’s getting treatment and from what I understand the treatments are working.'

Ray is a former Black Panther and photojournalist, later dabbling in Christian marriage counseling and small business ownership.
