Kanye West’s hospitalization at UCLA Medical Center is being treated very seriously.
West has been in the hospital for a week after being admitted for exhaustion and severe sleep deprivation last Monday, and while there has been some confusion as to the status of his health, a source close to the family recently shed light on the situation. The source told People magazine that West generally has “big ups and big downs, but 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 source added that West was still in the UCLA Medical Center because he isn’t doing well. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, has remained by his side throughout, and there seems to be growing concern for the rapper’s health as the source claims Kardashian “acts very concerned,” adding, “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 West reportedly trusts now is his wife, and according to the source she “spend[s] 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.”
However, a source close to the rapper reportedly told the publication that “he’s doing good” and that, “he’s been really eager to make music and to work even from the hospital bed.”
This is a very private family matter, which is why there are yet to be any official updates on West’s health, and speculation at this time is damning. Although, we do hope that West is getting the help that he needs.
