Hospitalized Kanye West still 'very paranoid' and under constant watch over fears for his safety

Reports of Kanye West’s mental state have been all over the place since the “Stronger” rapper was checked into a hospital last week, but a troubling new report from People indicates his problems may be far worse than anyone realized.

A source tells People that West has had “big ups and 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.”

Adds the insider: “He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.”

The 39-year-old rapper/fashion designer was taken to hospital soon after he abruptly cancelled all remaining dates on his “Saint Pablo” tour, and his remained hospitalized ever since.

According to the source, his wife Kim Kardashian “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.”

In fact, adds the source, “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.”

As for the state of West’s mental health, the source will only say that information is “very private,” and “between him and his family.”

Throughout the ordeal, Kanye has had wife Kim by his side the entire time and it's thought she's even lending nurses a helping hand.

"Kim has been amazing," the insider told US Weekly.

"She knew he couldn't keep going the way he was. She has been by his side through all of this, helping to feed him and lying by his side."

"She's been at the hospital all the time. Kim has been keeping a very close watch on him and not letting people disturb him.

All kinds of people have called and sent flowers, but she's being very careful about not letting him get wound up and making sure he rests and recovers," added the source.

Meanwhile, it's said his three-year-old daughter North and 11-month-old son Saint - who he has with his wife Kim Kardashian - don't know their parent is in hospital and think he is just on a trip.

Speaking about the Famous rapper and his brood, a source told E! News : "North and Saint [West] just think their dad is away now. Kanye wants to get better, so that's a big part in this healing process.

"Kanye is trying to get better, but he has not been released yet because he and the doctors feel he needs more time to recover.
