Kim Kardashian West "doesn't seem concerned" about Kanye West's mental health.

The 39-year-old rapper is currently being treated for exhaustion and sleep deprivation at UCLA Medical Centre after cancelling the remaining dates of his 'Saint Pablo Tour', but his wife, Kim, isn't worried about his condition and doesn't think the effects of his illnesses will be "long-lasting".

A source told People magazine: "Kanye is almost back to normal. Kim doesn't seem concerned about any long-lasting mental issues."

Another source told the publication that Kim, 36, has "barely" left her husband's side since he was admitted to hospital on Monday, and while she was "very concerned" about his health, she is now "very happy that Kanye is feeling better".

The news comes after Kim - with whom the Famous rapper shares two children, North, three, and Saint, 11 months - skipped out on an appearance at Denise Rich's Angel Ball in New York City in favour of being in Los Angeles with Kanye.

A source said: "Kim was terrified. She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side.

"There was no question about her staying in New York City. She had to be with him last night.

Brad Pitt will not spend Thanksgiving with Angelina Jolie or their children.

The 52-year-old actor and his estranged wife - with whom he has six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - won't be spending the American holiday season together, US Weekly magazine has reported.

A source told the publication: "Angelina did not invite Brad to spend Thanksgiving with their kids."

The news comes after it was revealed on Wednesday that the Fury actor would not be facing charges from the FBI after an investigation into an alleged altercation between him and his son, Maddox.

The Allied star was said to have "got physical" in a row with his 15-year-old son on a private jet in September as the family headed back to the US from France, which supposedly prompted 41-year-old Angelina to file for divorce, but no further action will be taken.

Last week, an insider reported that Brad had only seen his children three times since the Maleficent star filed for divorce in September.

They said: "He's crushed. Brad has been deferential on what's best for them and limits their stress."

However, Kris Herzog - a bodyguard who works for both the family and Angelina's father Jon Voight - recently claimed the actor's supervised visits with his children have not gone well.

He said previously: "Brad is so angry. From what I've heard from Brad and Jon, even the kids are turning against him.

"He's alleging they won't even speak to him and they won't call him Daddy or Father.

"They've had two meetings with Los Angeles family services, and in both, none of the kids would talk to him.

"He stormed out of the second one really angry. It was the straw that broke the camel's back. This fight is going nuclear now."

Lady Gaga doesn't feel "free" now that she's famous.

The 30-year-old pop megastar - real name Stefani Germanotta - has made a name for herself since she released her debut album, The Fame, in 2008, but has said the attention she receives from fans can be too much, as she claims it is "legal" for people to follow her and stalk her.

She said: "I'm very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I'm not free anymore.

"As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else. It's legal to follow me. It's legal to stalk me at the beach. And I can't call the police or ask them to leave."

She revealed in an interview with US television show CBS Sunday Morning which airs this Sunday: "I miss people. I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying 'Hi,' and having a conversation about life. I love people."

The news comes after the Million Reasons singer recently likened fame to a drug and said she was finished fighting for "more attention".
