Though no criminal activity was involved, authorities decided to hospitalise West for his own health and safety.
After abruptly cancelling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalised in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ and CNN, West was taken to UCLA Medical Center Monday to be treated for exhaustion.
TMZ goes on to state that Kanye was reportedly being treated for severe sleep deprivation at the hospital when a member of the medical staff declared that he needed to be admitted. As of Monday evening, he is still ‘under observation.’
The incident comes after West ignited a Twitter storm on Thursday by saying he ‘would’ve voted for Donald Trump’ at a concert in Inglewood, California.
More recently, West cut his Saturday concert in Sacramento short after a handful of songs, but not before calling out Beyoncé and addressing Jay Z: ‘Call me, brah, you still ain’t call me. Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man,’ he said. The latter show left fans so upset that Ticketmaster refunded their tickets.
His wife Kim Kardashian reportedly arrived in New York on Monday for the event, but flew back to L.A. to be with her husband.
Famous friends and fans have since tweeted messages in support of West:
PRAYING FOR KANYE. PRAYING HE HAS THE RIGHT ENERGY SURROUNDING HIM DURING THIS TIME. SENDING PEACE AND LOVE.
