Kanye West not allowed to leave hospital

Kanye West has not been released from hospital yet, reportedly being held there longer than planned.

The troubled 'Monster' rapper was hospitalised after suffering a "psychiatric emergency" last week, shortly after carrying out a bizarre tirade at a concert and cancelling the rest of his tour.

The husband of Kim Kardashian was meant to be released from UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday (local time), with his personal doctor set to take charge - but his stay has been extended, now with no set release date planned, as he is "not stable".

Kanye has reportedly been suffering "extreme paranoia" since his breakdown, even refusing to let doctors touch him in one situation.

Meanwhile, Kim has been at his side nursing him back to health almost constantly since his hospitalisation.

She's been sleeping in the hospital and helping to feed Kanye, reports Us Weekly.

"Kim has been amazing," the gossip magazine quotes their source as saying.

"She 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 lying by his side."

Kim and Kanye have two children - three-year-old North and 11-month-old Saint.
