Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalised ‘for his own health and safety’.
The 39-year-old was hospitalised in Los Angeles after police responded to a medical welfare call, according to reports. A source told People that West was ‘exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation’.
West’s hospitalisation comes after the ‘Yeezus’ star cancelled the remainder of his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour following a stage rant at a concert in Sacramento.
Yeezy controversially cut his set short after just 30 minutes following a lengthy tirade against Beyonce, claiming that her husband and West’s former friend Jay Z had the means to have him killed. He also caused controversy when he admitted that he ‘would have voted for Donald Trump’.
The now-cancelled Saint Pablo tour was scheduled for a further 21 dates before the end of 2016.

While rumours have been swirling about the state of West’s mental health, a source close to the 39-year-old denies that he’s having any sort of breakdown.
The source told People:
It’s nothing like that. He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line. He’s a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work — which is extremely important to him — and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out.
Get well soon, Yeezy.
