Worrying times for the Kardashian-West family
Kanye West has reportedly been admitted to hospital just hours after he dramatically cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour.
The rapper, 39, was apparently taken to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday night following a ‘disturbance call’, with a police spokesperson telling the BBC that it was later deemed a ‘medical incident’.
‘At 13:20 pacific time, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request,’ the rep says.
‘An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment.’
Police did not directly name Kanye when discussing this case.
There have been various reports about the nature of his hospitalisation. It’s claimed by TMZ that the music star is undergoing ‘psychiatric evaluation’ after ‘acting erratically’ at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s house.
A source alleges that Kanye was getting checked out by a doctor for sleep deprivation during his visit to Mr Pasternak’s home before someone called the police.
Meanwhile the Los Angeles Times says that Yeezy was hospitalised due to ‘stress’ and ‘exhaustion’.
It comes hours after it was announced that the remainder of Kanye’s tour has been cancelled following some peculiar on-stage rants recently, though no reason has been given for the cancellation.
On Saturday night he walked off stage after just three songs and spent a lengthy amount of time slating many famous names including Jay Z and Beyonce.
He also sparked boos from the crowd at a gig last week when he praised the future President Donald Trump and aired some controversial views about racism.
Now Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian looks to have responded to her husband’s medical issue after dropping out of what was set to be her first public appearance since being robbed in Paris early in October.
Kim, 36, had been due to attend the Angel Ball in New York – a charity event honouring her late dad Robert Kardashian – with her family but missed the event following Kanye’s hospitalisation. She apparently headed straight back to LA.
There’s been no official comment from Kanye, Kim or their reps but we hope all is well.
