Kanye West’s condition is reportedly worse than initially suspected, and he looks set to spend Thanksgiving in a hospital.

The rapper was admitted to hospital for sleep deprivation, and while his family is keen to have him home for the holidays, it probably won’t happen.

TMZ is reporting that Kanye’s issues are bad enough that his insurance policy, which covers losses for cancelled concerts due to illness, will pay out after he cancelled 21 dates of his Saint Pablo tour.

While it is believed the rapper is now feeling a little bit ‘more like himself’, doctors and wife Kim are apparently taking it “day by day”.

A source told People: “They are taking it day by day. He understands that getting help at the hospital was necessary.”

Kim Kardashian has spent the last three days by her husband’s side and was spotted leaving the hospital on Wednesday night before returning early on Thursday morning.

“Family and friends are around. Kim is amazing. As are all of his friends and team and inner circle,” added a source.


An insider said: “Kim was terrified. She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side.

“There was no question about her staying in New York City. She had to be with him last night.”

Kanye’s hospitalisation comes after he was reportedly suffering from a “combination” of health problems including “stress, anxiety, and paranoia”.
