Reports say that Kanye West was taken to hospital for psychiatric evaluation in Los Angeles after someone became concerned for his health and called the police. Sources say that the person who called the cops was one of Kanye’s doctors who was checking him for sleep deprivation.
Paramedics responded alongside the police and Kanye was taken in to be evaluated. Some reports say he had to be handcuffed since he didn’t want to go, while others point out that it is standard for those going for evaluation to be cuffed to the gurney for their own safety.
Either way, we can’t say that we’re too surprised by this, given his recent well-publicized erratic behavior. Apart from co-signing Donald Trump, the rapper also called out Beyoncé and appeared concerned that her husband, Jay Z had “killers” who could take him out for speaking against his friend and mentor.
Unsurprisingly, Kanye’s Saint Pablo Tour has now been cancelled while some say he finally succumbed to the pressure of having his wife, Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint in Paris and the anniversary of the death of his mother, Donda West, last week.
If the reports are true, we hope Kanye gets the help he needs, although we can’t help feeling that this has been on the cards for years rather than days or weeks!
Get well soon.
