It sounds like things aren’t getting any better for Kanye West. After being hospitalized and admitted to the UCLA Medical Center a week ago for exhaustion and sleep deprivation, he’s reportedly suffering from brutal bouts of paranoia, and as Kim Kardashian stays by his side, he is under constant supervision for his own safety.
A source close to the family spoke to People and explained that the reason behind 39-year-old Kanye’s continued hospitalization is clear. “He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.” But they also elaborated by explaining that despite the fact that Kanye has in the past had “big ups and big downs… this bout seems to be much more serious. In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety.”
The one person he still feels he can lean on is Kim. The (former?) reality celeb and mother of Kanye’s two children “acts very concerned. She says he has yet to be diagnosed, but she uses words like paranoia and explained that Kanye thinks everyone is out to get him. The only person Kanye trusts is Kim.”
That’s one of the reasons Kim has been so present during the entire sitch, flying out of NY as soon as she learned that Kanye needed her and staying with him as much as possible. “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. Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.” Oof. That doesn’t sound good at all.
Get well soon, Kanye!
Do you think Kanye just needs some serious R&R or could something more be behind this sitch? Tweet us @britandco!
