Kanye West hospitalized

LOS ANGELES (KUSI) — Kanye West was taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation Saturday, according to TMZ.

Officers and paramedics were dispatched to West’s home just after 1 p.m. Monday to check on the rap star after a call was made to law enforcement.

A doctor was earlier called to check West for severe sleep deprivation when someone decided he needed to be admitted, TMZ reported.

Earlier Monday, West abruptly canceled the rest of Sant Pablo Tour. Live Nation released a statement saying they would fully refund those who bought tickets to Kanye’s upcoming shows but there was no explanation to why the concert was canceled.

West had stopped a show to a crowd of boos in Sacramento Saturday after just a few songs, despite starting the concert 90 minutes late. The nearly 20-minute rant was caught on video by a concertgoer: 

The rapper also stopped a show last week to say he supported Donald Trump, although he didn’t vote for him.
