Kanye West's problems go deeper than thought

Kanye West's problems go deeper than thought

Kanye West's problems are reportedly "much deeper" than was first thought.

The 'Famous' hitmaker - who has children North, three, and Saint, 11 months, with wife Kim Kardashian West - was hospitalised on Monday (21.11.16) with exhaustion and though some of his loved ones had hoped he'd be home for Thanksgiving on Thursday (24.11.16), it is now looking unlikely he'll be discharged from UCLA Medical Centre until at least the end of the week.

The 39-year-old rapper was said to be suffering temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration, but sources told TMZ his issues "go much deeper".

And the insider claimed Kanye's psychological problems are "significant enough" that his insurance policy will "almost certainly" cover the losses for the 21 tour dates he cancelled shortly before his admission to hospital.

Kanye sparked fears for his health earlier this week after he reportedly lashed out at a member of staff at his trainer Harley Pasternak's home in Los Angeles at 1:20pm on Monday.

A private doctor was called to the scene as the rapper was believed to be acting "erratically" and claimed people were telling him they wanted to "kill" him.

The medical professional sectioned him with a 5150 hold, which authorises a qualified officer to involuntarily confine a person suspected to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to themselves or a threat to others, and enlisted the help of paramedics to transport him to hospital.

The doctor reportedly informed the emergency services that there was a "psychiatric emergency" at the given address, but gave responders an alias for the 'Only One' rapper, saying he was a man named Jim Jones who "suffers from temporary psychosis."

However, Kanye didn't take kindly to the paramedics trying to help him and allegedly attacked them, which in turn lead to him being handcuffed to the stretcher to restrain him.

The 'Only One' hitmaker was then rushed to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, via ambulance for a psychiatric evaluation by trained psychiatrists.

Kanye's wife Kim - who has retreated from the limelight after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month - was supposed to make her first official public appearance since her attack on Monday at Denise Rich's Angel Ball.

But, after she learnt of Kanye's disturbing mental state, she cancelled her highly-awaited appearance in New York with her family and rushed to his bedside.

It's believed the 'Bound 2' star has been falling down a slippery slope for a while and has been battling with stress, anxiety and paranoia following the robbery in France in October.

As well as dealing with his wife and her anxiety after the armed robbery, it's also coming up to the ninth anniversary of Kanye's mother Donda West's death.
