Kanye West is currently hospitalized and under observation at a Los Angeles hospital, after a sudden cancellation of his concert tour.
A source close to West’s family told CNN; that the rapper is being treated for “exhaustion” at UCLA Medical Center. .
The decision to hospitalize West came after Los Angeles police responded to a disturbance call in which Kanye was acting erratically.
By the time paramedics arrived, Kanye was calmer but still resistant to going to the hospital. Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital as standard protocol. .
West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, was in New York to attend a charity event where her late father was being honored, but she flew back to Los Angeles when she learned of her husband’s situation.
