Kanye West’s hospital stay has shown that things are way worse than anyone thought. Kanye’s staying in the hospital with no chance of going home yet. That’s because West is “not even close” to being better, and he’s still “not out of the woods,” according to a new report from TMZ.
Kanye’s breakdown left him with a long way to go before the rapper and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will be well enough to cope with the outside world.
Before the holiday weekend in the hospital, reports suggested West would be released today (Monday, November 28). However, that’s definitely not going to happen.
Kanye reportedly isn’t stable enough to leave the hospital, and there’s no news on when he will be ready. West “has not recovered from his breakdown a week ago,” even though the initial belief of the doctors at the hospital, and Kanye’s own doctor, was that he’d be fine by today.
According to insiders, that reaction was overly optimistic and based on the idea that the only thing really wrong with West was exhaustion and dehydration. Kanye had been working hard for months, with the “Saint Pablo Tour,” his fashion collections, and helping Kim after the Paris robbery.
Kris Jenner spoke out about Kanye’s health after he canceled “Saint Pablo Tour” dates, and at the time, she didn’t think his situation was all that serious.
“He’s exhausted. He’s just really tired. He’s had a grueling tour and it’s been a grind so he just needs some rest.”
However, it looks like there was a lot more going on, including reports of extreme paranoia. Kanye’s paranoia was allegedly so bad that “at one point he would not even let the doctors touch him.”
At least Yeezy hasn’t been going through this trauma alone. Throughout his hospital stay, Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian-West, has been “by his side,” taking care of him in a totally devoted way.
Fans are offering support as well, and one person tweeted his disappointment at people “ripping” at Kanye just because he’s struggling with his mental health.

Unfortunately, all Kim’s devotion hasn’t made Kanye well again, and he still reportedly needs lots more help to come out the other side and regain his mental health.
Sources state that Kim is doing her best to take care of her hurting husband, and Cosmopolitan writes that she’s been a “big part of Kanye West’s recovery.”
TMZ says she’s been “by his bedside” since she rushed there after hearing the disturbing news that Kanye had been rushed to the hospital. That means Kim has been in the hospital with Kanye “almost nonstop for a week.”
The magazine referenced a report by Us Weekly that revealed an insider’s scoop on how Kim was supporting Kanye in the hospital.
“[Kim] 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 laying by his side.”
The Kardashian-Wests were together in the hospital for Thanksgiving. Kim reportedly only left Kanye’s side “to see the kids. She’s been at the hospital all the time.”

When West was first admitted to the hospital, the bizarre story of his breakdown wasn’t exactly a surprise to fans. The rapper had been going on weird Twitter rants, even stranger concert rants against his friends Jay-Z and Beyonce, cutting short his “Saint Pablo Tour” concerts, and behaving more and more “erratically.”
What do you think? Will Kanye West ever recover completely from his breakdown, or is his mental health more serious than anyone knew?
