Amid rumors of Kanye West’s paranoia, reports have emerged that the 39-year-old father-of-two only trusts one person: his wife, Kim Kardashian.
According to an unnamed source for People magazine, Yeezy believes that everyone is out to get him, and the only person he still has faith in is the 37-year-old mother of his children.
“The only person Kanye trusts is Kim. Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day.”
A source for ET Online corroborated the information provided by the People source, saying that West “had severe paranoia.”
“It was over nothing that was tangible or real. He was thinking that people were out to kill him, out to break him and Kim up. It was Kanye vs. the whole world.”
On Nov. 21, Kanye West was admitted to the UCLA medical center, where he was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, pending further evaluation. At the time of his hospital admission, West was reportedly suffering from sleep deprivation and dehydration, but in the days since he was taken to the hospital, reports have indicated that West’s condition may be worse than originally believed.
In fact, early reports indicated that the rapper and fashion designer would be released from the hospital today. As the day wore on, it became clear that Kanye would spend more time at Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, and TMZ reported that Kanye’s release date had been pushed back indefinitely.

According to the report from ET Online, West has not been diagnosed with anything because doctors are “reluctant to diagnose anything, mainly because a mental or cognitive disorder cannot be diagnosed after one hospital visit, but after observing someone’s behavior over the course of a specific time frame.”
The source for People reported that Kanye 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. He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.” Other sources close to West claim that the reports of West’s condition are exaggerated, People indicated.

Kanye is known for outlandish remarks and wild rants, both during his concerts and on social media. On the same day he was admitted to the hospital, Yeezy announced that he would cancel the remaining shows in his Saint Pablo Tour. The announcement came just days after West went on a diatribe against Jay Z and Beyoncé.
Kanye’s breakdown comes roughly six weeks after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed and held at gunpoint in her apartment during Paris Fashion Week. Then, Kardashian was robbed of about $10 million in jewelry, and she was bound and gagged during the heist.
Reports from ET Online indicate that the robbery may have weighed heavily on the fashion designer, who subsequently is said to have hired additional security to keep his family safe. Together, West and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star have two children: North, 3, and Saint, 11 months.
“The Paris incident unsettled everyone, [but it] unsettled him the most. He had this anxiety that everyone around him was trying to get him.”
In the wake of the robbery, Kardashian has opted to retreat from the spotlight, and rumors abound that Kardashian wanted to quit her family’s famous reality TV show. In fact, soon after Kanye was hospitalized, reports surfaced that he and Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, had feuded about whether or not Kim would continue filming KUWTK.
In the wake of Kanye’s breakdown, what do you think of the report that Kanye West doesn’t trust anyone except for his wife, Kim Kardashian? Do you believe the rumors to be true? Why or why not?
