Hours after Kanye West canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, the rapper was reportedly placed under observation at a Los Angeles hospital Monday.
NBC Los Angeles reports that police responded to a “medical welfare” call involving the rapper at 1:20 p.m. local time. Although no criminal activity had been committed, paramedics at the scene made the decision to hospitalize West was made for “his own health and safety.”
TMZ adds that West was taken to UCLA Medical Center for evaluation. A representative for West did not return Rolling Stone‘s request for comment.
Although no reason was provided for West’s canceled tour, TMZ reported earlier Monday that the rapper was “exhausted” from working on his fashion line and touring.
West’s recent Saint Pablo shows had recently been marred by bizarre rants from the rapper, including his controversial statements onstage about how he “would have voted for Donald Trump” in the presidential election.
The canceled tour comes after West abruptly ended a Sacramento concert after a 30-minute rant. Four songs into the show, West launched into a tirade that called out Jay Z and Beyoncé, radio programmers, Hillary Clinton, Google and Mark Zuckerberg before cutting the concert short.
