■ Hospitalized after a spate of strange behavior, Kanye West is struggling with “extreme paranoia” and depression, TMZ.com reports. Sources say the rapper believes doctors at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles are out to get him, and for a time wouldn’t let staffers touch him. West was rushed to the hospital last week when he began behaving “erratically” at his trainer’s home. The health scare came hours after West canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo tour; during earlier dates, he cut shows short and ranted onstage about Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé, and Jay Z. Throughout his medical crisis, wife Kim Kardashian has offered stalwart support. “Kim has been amazing,” an insider says, “helping to feed him and lying by his side.”
■ In a party prank gone horribly wrong, Britain’s Princess Beatrice last week sliced a gash in Ed Sheeran’s cheek while pretending to knight his fellow singer-songwriter James Blunt. During a bash at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, England, Blunt joked that he craved a knighthood and Beatrice, 28, “fetched a ceremonial sword,” a source tells The Sun (U.K.). As he got down on one knee, she raised the weapon and pronounced, “Arise Sir James.” Unfortunately, “instead of lightly tapping him on the shoulder, she swung it back, not knowing Ed was standing right behind her.” The blade barely missed Sheeran’s eye. The “Bloodstream” singer was treated at a nearby hospital, but returned to the party, to the relief of a mortified Beatrice. “She and Ed spoke about it, and everything was fine.”
■ Onetime Brat Packer Anthony Michael Hall is facing up to seven years behind bars after being charged this week with felony battery for allegedly attacking a neighbor during an argument over an unlocked gate in their condo complex. In an altercation caught by security cameras, the Breakfast Club star, 48, is accused of slamming the man to the ground, leaving him with a broken wrist and an injured back. This isn’t Hall’s first legal scrape: He was arrested in 2011 for allegedly “terrorizing” neighbors with aggressive behavior, which included spraying them with a hose and shouting obscenities.
