Now, though, it appears he has checked in to a rehab clinic under the guidance of Dallas' owner Cuban.

According to TMZ, Cuban had been trying to contact West for days until he finally got through.

It's understood Cuban then worked closely alongside West's mother to ensure he accepted the help he so desperately needed.
