Kanye West has not only canceled his Saint Pablo tour dates, but he has also been hospitalized.
According to a report from TMZ, Kanye was taken into the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. The police responded to a call yesterday afternoon at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home. Police were notified that a welfare check was needed after the rapper was said to be “acting erratically.”
By the time that the paramedics arrived, Kanye was calmer, but did not wish to go to UCLA Medical Center. Law enforcement officials as well as his management team convinced ‘Ye to go to the hospital. At that time, he was handcuffed to the gurney per their standard procedures and taken to the hospital.
Reportedly, Kanye had been dealing with a sleep deprivation issue and was being looked at by a doctor while at his trainer’s home. Someone there thought it was best to contact the police.
