Just a week ago Kanye West was rushed to the UCLA Medical Center for exhaustion and sleep deprivation. He has since been under heavy supervision and was scheduled to be released Monday. But sources now indicate that the hip-hop star will be extending his hospitalization indefinitely. This has now prompted fans and media to think-is Kanye West’s mental health problems worse than thought?
Though initially meant to just treat his lack of sleep and dehydration, health personnel found out that water and sleep were not the remedies for West’s current state. Reports are now indicating that Kanye West may be suffering from “extreme paranoia” and depression.
“We’re told after Kanye was taken to the hospital Monday he was convinced people were out to get him, including the doctors who were caring for him,” an insider shared with TMZ. “Our sources say for a time he wouldn’t even let the doctors touch him.”
Another insider has also stated that doctors are also fearing for Kanye West’s safety and well-being as the celebrity may have the potential of hurting himself.
“Big ups and big downs, but this bout seems to be much more serious,” shared Perez Hilton. “In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety.”
