Kanye West has been described a being ‘‘profoundly depressed and paranoid,’ according to TMZ.

The rapper was rushed to UCLA Medical Centre last Monday following an alleged mental breakdown and reports state that he was convinced people were ‘’out to get him’’.

According to the website, Kanye was so paranoid that when entering the facility he wouldn’t even let doctors and nurses touch him.

The news comes days after TMZ reported his condition was worse than first feared.

Although he was initially reported to be suffering from a temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration, it has been suggested that the rapper’s problems ‘go deeper’.  

Despite Kanye’s worsening situation, it is thought that his doctors are hopeful he can be released home by Monday into the care of his personal doctor.
