It's been over one week since Kanye West was admitted to UCLA Medical Center after he canceled the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour and was allegedly "acting erratically" at his trainer's home. He was said to be suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation.

There hasn't been much news on the performer's condition since he was admitted, but People is reporting that he "is being heavily supervised," and a source told them he has “big ups and big downs, [and] this bout seems to be much more serious. In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety.” The source added that “he’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.”

TMZ reported on Monday, the day the 39-year-old was supposed to be leave the hospital, that "Kanye is still not stable and will not be released... there is now no release date set, because he has not recovered from his breakdown a week ago."

West's troubles began at his last two concerts in California, where he ended shows early and delivered long rants involving Donald Trump (who he said he would have voted for if he bothered to vote), and some negative thoughts about Beyonce and Jay Z (who haven't reached out to him since).

His wife Kim Kardashian—who has kept out of the public eye since being the victim of a violent robbery in Paris in October—has reportedly been at his side every day, as doctors treat him with various medications.

Meanwhile, Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been temporarily shut down, TMZ reports, as Kim is "rethinking some things." No more episodes will be filmed this year.
