Rapper was hospitalised earlier this week after suffering from 'severe sleep deprivation'

Kanye West is set to remain in hospital for the rest of the week at least, according to new reports.

The rapper was hospitalised “for his own health and safety” on Monday (November 21) after suffering from “severe sleep deprivation”.

Despite it recently being reported that West was “doing much better”TMZ now claims that Kanye is in a “bad mental state” and that his stay in hospital is “far from over”.

The report reads: “Our sources say as of Wednesday morning it appeared he would stay at UCLA Medical Center until at least week’s end. We’re told some members of Kanye’s family wanted him home for Thanksgiving and felt it would do him good, but as of yesterday that looked improbable.”

Lady GagaPusha TJohn Legend and Chance The Rapper are among the stars sending his best wishes to West this week following the news. Legend said he was “concerned” about the ‘Life of Pablo’ artist, while Chance sent “a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West”. Pusha T thanked West for the “endless opportunities you have brought to me”.

It has also been reported that Beyoncé is reportedly urging Jay Z to patch things up with Kanye.

West’s relationship with his former mentor and friend has appeared strained recently. At a concert in Sacramento last week he cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a rant about Beyoncé and Jay Z. During the rant, he urged Jay to call him and claimed that his fellow rapper has the means to have him killed.

Meanwhile, West’s latest album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ made it to number two in NME‘s albums of the year list for 2016.
