Kanye West’s health is worse than expected according to new reports. It was initially reported to be suffering from a temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration, TMZ has claimed that the rapper’s problems ‘go deeper’.
The 39-year-old Kanye was rushed to UCLA Medical Center after a reported breakdown on Monday and is currently being assessed with wife Kim Kardashian by his side.
The website reports Kanye is in such a ‘bad mental state’ that his insurance policy for his 21 cancelled U.S. concerts is likely to cover him for lost profits due to illness.
And it’s looking likely that the rapper will remain in hospital over Thanksgiving.
His family had hoped that he would be able to spend the U.S. holiday at home, but TMZ said this is looking unlikely.
People reported that his wife Kim Kardashian left his bedside for the first time late on Wednesday, with a bodyguard in tow. But the magazine claimed she was expecting to return first thing in the morning.
A source claimed the rapper is ‘starting to feel more like himself, and that he understands the importance of ‘resting and getting help. They are taking it day by day. He understands that getting help at the hospital was necessary,’ they said.
