Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West has been "helping to feed" Kanye West whilst he's in hospital.

The 39-year-old rapper was admitted to UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles last week for treatment for exhaustion and sleep deprivation - which led him to cancel the remaining dates on his 'Saint Pablo Tour' - and the 36-year-old 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has been helping him along the way ever since.

A source told US Weekly magazine: "Kim has been amazing. 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 laying by his side."

And, although the Kim is sticking by husband, their two children - North, three, and Saint, 11 months - have no idea of their father's condition.

An insider said previously: "North and Saint [West] just think their dad is away now. Kanye wants to get better, so that's a big part in this healing process.

"Kanye is trying to get better, but he has not been released yet because he and the doctors feel he needs more time to recover.

"Kim is by his side now and will stand there till everything gets better."

Supporting the 'Famous' rapper is important for Kim, as she is keen to show him the same support he showed her when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France, last month.

Another source said: "She is just holding things down like Kanye did for her when she needed support.

"Kim is doing much better and is strong. This shall pass she believes.

"Their time together was just about support. Kanye will be ok. He has a good set of doctors and the main thing is he wants to get through this."

Previous reports claimed the 'Gold Digger' hitmaker would be released from hospital on Monday (28.11.16) but it is not yet known whether he will be well enough to do so.
