Kanye West Hospitalized After Cancelling Saint Pablo Tour
E! News has learned that the Grammy-winning rapper admitted himself into a Los Angeles area hospital Monday evening. A source tells us that “he is exhausted.”
According to NBC News‘ sources, no criminal activity was involved and the decision to hospitalize the “Fade” rapper was for “his own health and safety.”
We’ve also learned that the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call at 1:20 p.m. and upon the authorities’ arrival, “the disturbance call became a medical emergency” only.
The news comes on the heels of Yeezy’s controversial rant mid-concert about his recent rift between longtime friends Jay Z and Beyoncé as well as his comments on Hillary Clinton and President-Elect Donald Trump.
“The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled,” a rep for West told E! News in a statement. “Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.”
After arriving 90 minutes late to his show in Sacramento Saturday, West ranted about his new feud with the music power couple—then left after three songs, shouting, “I’m on my Trump s–t tonight.”
“Beyoncé, I was hurt ’cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling.’ Now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F–k winning. F–k looking cool. F–k being cool,” the 39-year-old rapper explained during his show.
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, call me, Jay Z; I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”
This wasn’t the first bump in the road for West’s Saint Pablo tour, however, as back in October he stopped the show early due to a family emergency.
He then rescheduled several tour dates to be by the E! star’s side.
