After abruptly cancelling the remaining 22 shows of his “Saint Pablo Tour” early Monday morning, rapper Kanye West was hospitalized in Los Angeles for a psychiatric evaluation.
West was taken to the UCLA Medical Center after law enforcement responded to a welfare check on Kanye at approximately 1:20 P.M. while at the home of his trainer, Harley Pasternak.
TMZ reported that West is being examined for severe sleep deprivation after “acting erratically.” When paramedics showed up at Pasternak’s home Kanye was reluctant but eventually convinced by his management and law enforcement to go to the hospital. At this point he was handcuffed to the gurney and transported for his evaluation.
It was reported that many factors could have led up to West’s breakdown.
Last Thursday West was booed at a concert in San Jose, California after he stated he would’ve cast his ballot for Donald Trump had he voted in the presidential election.
Two days later West stopped a show in Sacramento California only 30 minutes after stepping onto the stage. He had only played 3 songs and then went on a rant about Jay Z and Beyoncé before calling it quits.
His wife Kim Kardashian was also robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month, and because of his tour, Kanye has spent large amounts of time away from her.
“All the time spent away from his family has been a stress on him as well,” a source told TMZ. “He’s just exhausted.”
Kanye is expected to lose approximately $10 million for the cancellation of his tour.
