Kim Kardashian is putting aside her recent armed robbery ordeal in Paris to one side in order to help her beleaguered husband, Kanye West, recover in hospital this last week.

Rap megastar Kanye, 39, was admitted to UCLA hospital on Monday last week (November 21st), and his 36 year old wife has been a more or less constant presence at his bedside as he recovers from a number of reported mental and physical health issues.

“Kim has been amazing. She knew he couldn't keep going the way he was,” says a source close to the family to TMZ this week. “She has been by his side through all of this, helping to feed him and laying by his side.”

The incident last week made headlines, as Kanye was taken to hospital amid reports that he was battling sleep deprivation, extreme dehydration and exhaustion. This came less than two days after he cut short his concert in Sacramento at the weekend, after engaging in a long-winded political rant.

He then cancelled a show scheduled for that Sunday with just hours to go before he was due to take to the stage, as well as all of the rest of his Saint Pablo tour dates.

“She has been an unbelievably devoted spouse. He’s a lucky man,” the family insider continued.

Kim has, of course, been struggling to put her own trauma behind her stemming from the terrifying armed robbery that occurred at her Paris apartment back in early October. She has downgraded almost all of her social media activities and withdrawn from the public glare over the last eight weeks.

However, the reality TV star has been keeping a “constant vigil” by Kanye’s bedside, with the insider saying Kim finds it “excruciating” to see him battling severe paranoia about what he believes to be outsiders’ attempts to break up their marriage.
