Kanye West To Install In-house Hospital
LOS ANGELES, June 24 -- Kanye West is installing a health screening suite in his new mansion.
The 37-year-old rapper is reportedly splashing out £3 million on an in-house hospital to protect his wife Kim, 33, and their 12-month-old daughter North from any potential medical threats.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper, "The special suite will include an X-ray machine, CT scanner, ultrasound and blood-taking facilities. Other celebrities such as Madonna have taken similar measures in the past, but not on such a grand and costly scale.
"The facilities will enable the family to monitor their sugar levels, cholesterol and blood pressure. They will also have a team of private doctors around the clock, daily visits from top nurses and a full paediatric team for North."
However, Kim believes her husband is taking things a little too far and isn't convinced installing a high-tech unit filled with medical supplies is such a good idea.
The source explained, "Kim believes it's paranoid and a bit unnecessary. But she figures it can't do any harm, and he might prove to be right one day."
Meanwhile, Kim has been staying at her mother Kris Jenner's house with Kanye and North while they wait for renovations on their new mansion in Los Angeles to be completed.
The couple - who got married last month in Florence, Italy - were hoping to move into their new home at the end of last year but, after a few electrical glitches, their moving date was pushed back.
