LOS ANGELES, Nov 29 — It turns out that Kanye West might be in worse psychological shape than previously thought.
Although TMZ reported that it had been hoped he would be released in time for Thanksgiving last Thursday, the rapper remained hospitalised at UCLA Medical Centre over the holidays.
It is now unclear when he will be discharged.
A source even went so far as to tell People magazine: “He’s still [at UCLA Medical Centre] because clearly he’s not doing well.”
The 39-year-old was admitted a week ago after suffering a temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration.
The source added that West “is under constant watch for his safety” because “he has been very paranoid.”
But if there were one person he can count on to support him, it would be wife Kim Kardashian.
An insider told TMZ that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was still struggling to come to terms with the armed heist in Paris that saw her robbed of US$5.6 million (RM25 million) of jewels in October, but she’s put her own needs on hold for the sake of her husband.
The source said that Kardashian has maintained an “almost a constant vigil at UCLA Medical Centre for a week.”
“Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day. She says that Kanye is on many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses,” the source was quoted as saying.
“Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.”
Kardashian is also reportedly the only person that West trusts.
TMZ said that the Life of Pablo musician had become so paranoid he is convinced people are “trying to destroy their marriage” and “everyone is out to get him.”
