Kanye West hospitalized after suddenly cancelling tour


LOS ANGELES, Ca (CBSN) — Kanye West has been hospitalized following the cancellation of his Saint Pablo Tour, Entertainment Tonight reported.

LAPD officials confirmed that they responded to a call in Los Angeles around 1:20 p.m.

“Upon our arrival, the disturbance call became a medical emergency only where LAFD responded,” police continued. “Our job was done there and they took over the medical emergency.”

LAFD officials told ET, “An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment.”

Police told the AP that the patient was taken in an ambulance to the hospital and placed on a psychiatric hold. CBS News has not confirmed West’s reported hospitalization.

Concert-goers outraged after Kanye West’s rants about Beyoncé, Jay Z, cut the show short

West abruptly pulled the plug on his Saint Pablo Tour a few days after making statements onstage about how he “would have voted for Donald Trump” and after a stormy weekend in which he abruptly canceled a show after four songs.

A representative for the rapper said Monday the remaining 21 dates of West’s current tour have been canceled. No reason was given. Live Nation said tickets will be “fully refunded at point of purchase.”

The tour, now in California, was to make stops through Dec. 31 in Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., among others.

The cancellation comes after a complex weekend for the musician, who ended a concert early in Sacramento, California, on Saturday, then canceled a performance Sunday in the Los Angeles area.

Saturday’s truncated show became a hot topic on social platforms as amateur videos circulated of a 10-minute tirade by West about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.

Over the weekend, West also flooded his Instagram account with nearly 100 fashion photos, many snaps of photos that were out of focus and poorly cropped.

On Friday, during a concert in San Jose, California, West said he didn’t vote but would have cast a ballot for Trump, praising the president-elect’s “method of communication” as “very futuristic.”

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, had been expected to make her first public appearance Monday night since she was tied up and robbed at gunpoint last month in Paris. It was to come at the Angel Ball, a charity event in New York honoring her late father, Robert Kardashian.

But amid the reports about West, she did not show up.
