Kanye West Hospitalized due to Exhaustion

Shortly after Kanye West had canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, the rapper had been placed under observation for exhaustion at a Los Angeles hospital on Monday.

NBC Los Angeles reported that police responded to a "medical welfare" call that involved, the rapper at 1:20 PM local time. Though no criminal activity had been committed, paramedics at the scene had made the decision to hospitalize West was made for "his own health and safety."

A representative for West did not reply immediately to Rolling Stone's request for comment.

While the Los Angeles Fire Department, citing HIPA laws, did not confirm whether West had been involved, a spokesperson for the LAFD told Rolling Stone, "At 1:20 p.m. today, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request in the 900-block of North Laurel Avenue. An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment."

West's recent Saint Pablo shows had been marred recently by bizarre rants from the rapper, including his controversial statements onstage about how he "would have voted for Donald Trump" in the presidential election.

The canceled tour came after West abruptly ended a Sacramento concert after a 30 minute of  rant. West launched Four songs into the show into a tirade that called out Jay Z and Beyoncé, radio programmers, Hillary Clinton, Google and Mark Zuckerberg before cutting the concert short.
