Kanye West was "under observation" at a Los Angeles hospital late today, NBC reports. The news comes shortly after the rapper's reps confirmed he was canceling the remaining 21 shows left in his Saint Pablo Tour without giving reason. The tour was meant to last until mid-December.
West was hospitalized for "his own health and safety" a close source told NBC. There was no criminal activity involved. The LAPD answered a "medical welfare" call at around 1:20 PM PST. It is unknown whether he is still in the hospital.
TMZ reports that West is under "psychiatric evaluation" at UCLA Medical Center. Law enforcement told the news site that he wasn't home when police responded to the call, but paramedics were able to transport the rapper via an ambulance. He reportedly did not want to go and had to be "restrained" while being transported.
Sources close to West said he was getting checked by the doctor for sleep deprivation when it was decided that he needed to be admitted to a hospital.
