A week after Kanye West was reluctantly hospitalized, the rapper reportedly doesn't appear ready to head home anytime soon.

Despite rumors that West would check out after the holiday weekend under the care of his personal physician, people "with direct knowledge of the situation” told TMZ on Monday that West still wasn’t stable enough leave Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

A West rep had no official update on the rapper’s status early Monday, but insiders’ clues have been filling in some of the blanks. One major topic of discussion has been Kim Kardashian West's role as a stabilizing factor in her husband's life.

Sources involved with the situation told The Times last week that it had taken two hours to persuade Yeezy to agree to hospitalization — ostensibly for dehydration and sleep deprivation.
