Kanye West continues to be hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center (opens in new tab), where he's being held under evaluation following erratic and near-violent behavior (opens in new tab). While the rapper's wife Kim Kardashian hoped to have him home on Monday, his hospital stay was extended due to the seriousness of his condition.

A source tells People (opens in new tab) that West has "big ups and big downs, but this bout seems to be much more serious," and adds that he's been "very paranoid" during his hospital stay.

West is reportedly "under constant watch for his safety," and has yet to be fully diagnosed—though Kim Kardashian "uses words like paranoia" and says "Kanye thinks everyone is out to get him." The source also reports that—according to Kim—Kanye is on "many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses."

Since West's condition hasn't improved since he was admitted, "his doctors seem concerned."
