Multi award-winning rapper and fashion designer Kanye West has been taken to hospital following a disturbance call, according to US media reports.
It was reported that the police responded to a medical welfare call in the afternoon on Monday after Kanye West abruptly ended his Saint Pablo Tour.
No official statement has been released as to why Mr West decided to cancel his show or why he was rushed to the hospital. Although, his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, in an interview on Monday night said Kanye suffered from exhaustion and just needed to rest.
Gossip website TMZ is, however, reporting a totally different story. TMZ reports that Kanye West was taken to hospital for “psychiatric evaluation” after behaving erratically at his trainer’s home.
They say he was resistant to go to the hospital but was later convinced by management and law enforcement. He was then handcuffed as per standard protocol on his way to the hospital in the ambulance.
The alleged ”psychiatric evaluation” comes a few days after the rapper had been behaving bizarrely on his shows, going on rants.
He talked about politics where he attacked Hillary Clinton as he declared support for President-elect Donald Trump.
”It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” West said.
”Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro.”
He talked about his long-time collaborator Jay-Z and Beyonce, who he said refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him.
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google, radio stations, MTV and black people who always talk about racism were all topics of his rants over his recent shows before he abruptly ended the last one after performing just two songs.
