Over the past week, Kanye West has started feuds with his celebrity friends and made controversial remarks about the 2016 election that seemed out of character, even for the outspoken rapper.
He told the audience at a recent San Jose, California concert that he did not vote in the 2016 election (despite being a Clinton supporter in the past), but that he would’ve voted for Trump “if I voted.” A few days later, Kanye went off on Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton and more at a concert in Sacramento, California, claiming he was “on my Trump sh-t tonight.” He performed only two songs and then abruptly ended the show.
On Monday, November 21, the rapper’s reps confirmed that the rest of the Saint Pablo Tour was canceled, leaving us all wondering what was going on with Ye?
Later that same night, news broke that Kanye was “under observation” at a Los Angeles hospital for “his own health and safety”. A source told NBC that Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call at about 1:20 p.m. PT. There was no criminal activity involved.
TMZ reported that the star was at his trainer Harley Pasternak‘s home at the time and was “acting erratically.” Sources close to Kanye said he was getting checked by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when it was decided he needed to be hospitalized. He was taken to UCLA Medical Center by ambulance and put under “psychiatric evaluation.”
Kim Kardashian, who was supposed to at the Angel Ball honoring her late father in New York City on Monday Night, rushed to her husband’s side.
This story is developing. We wish Kanye and his family all the best during this time.
