The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been spending several hours a day at her husband’s bedside at UCLA Medical Center after he experienced a “nervous breakdown” last week, but she is reportedly determined to keep their kids North, three, and 11-month-old Saint away from the hospital until the 39-year-old rapper is on the mend.
A source told : “She (Kim) is very worried about the kids being around Kanye. The kids have not visited. Kim has been there.”
However, the little ones are allowed to visit their father at Resnick Neuropsychiatric ward at UCLA, where Kanye is currently receiving treatment, providing they are accompanied by an adult.
The Bound 2 hitmaker was rushed to hospital over a week ago after he reportedly began hallucinating and allegedly lashed out at paramedics.
Since his admission, doctors have been keeping a constant eye on the rapper as they’re worried for his mental state and his safety.
The insider said: “In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety
“He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well. Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day.
They also said: “Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.”
The couple – who got married in 2014 – haven’t had the easiest time over the last few months as Kim, 36, was left fearing for her life in October after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
Despite the string of bad luck they’ve had over the past year, the pair know that they’ll come out of this stronger than ever.
The source said: “They know in the end this will bring them closer. Their love has not been affected during this hard time, but it has been tested to see if they can get through it.”
Meanwhile, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is still being filmed.
Following Kanye’s shock admission to hospital last week, it was initially thought producers had decided to pull the plug on the new series of the reality TV show so that the famous family could focus on the 39-year-old rapper’s health, but executives are adamant the cameras are still shooting for the time being.
A representative for E!, which has screened the series since 2007, told Variety: ” Keeping Up With the Kardashians ‘ is currently in production and has not been halted.”
However, producers aren’t against halting production for a short while as the cameras also stopped rolling temporarily last month when Kanye’s wife Kim was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

In spite of the disruptions, the team have enough footage,which follows the lives of momager Kris Jenner, the Kardashian sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, their brother Rob and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, to complete the current series.
Kanye has barely featured in the reality show so it is highly unlikely that he will be making an appearance during his recovery.
However, doctors don’t think he’s “mentally ready” to leave the hospital and are concerned he’ll push himself back over the edge again if they discharge him before he’s ready.
A source said recently: “Kanye isn’t ready to go back home … If he gets released and isn’t mentally ready he will go back to his old ways and push himself over the limit again.
“He needs to keep up with counselling even though he has an intense work schedule. He is just really drained and weak. He isn’t himself.”
