Last week, Kanye West was hospitalized following an emotional breakdown suffered during a session with his personal trainer.
Reports that West was placed on 5150 psychiatric hold were quickly debunked, but it soon became clear that the rapper’s condition required emergency attention.
Kanye was scheduled to be released on Monday, but hours before he was due to return home, TMZ learned that his release had been postponed indefinitely.
Now, Radar Online is claiming that a new release date has been scheduled for the end of this week – but Kanye still might not be returning to life as he knew it any time soon.
“Kanye was told by doctors that he will be released from the hospital by the end of this week,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.
“He is only leaving under the condition he will be strictly monitored by a team of nurses.”
Since Kanye hasn’t committed any crimes or been deemed a threat to himself or others (that we know of), it’s safe to assume that his wife is the one making the rules.
Indeed, Radar’s source says Kim has been laying down the law, both because she’s concerned for her husband’s health – and because she has two kids to raise and a life to lead.
“Kim is forcing Kanye to comply with whatever the doctors say because she cannot stand being at the hospital with him anymore,” says the source.
“She wants him home and she has been asking what she can do to help facilitate the process.”
Apparently, Kim was instructed that the best thing she can do for her husband is ease his transition home by ensuring that he remains surrounded by trained medical staff.
And of course, the task of making sure the short-tempered rapper stays on his meds will mostly fall to her:
“Kanye’s doctors told Kim that the only way that he would get out of there is if he stopped start obeying their orders,” the insider told Radar.
“All they want is for him to follow his treatment plan and start taking his medications, as well as to stop fighting the process.”
It’s been rumored that West’s breakdown was triggered in part by the fact that Kim and Kanye are headed for divorce.
We’re not saying that’s definitively not true, but we are saying that at the moment, Kanye’s health seems to be Kim’s number one concern.
