"Exhausted" Kanye West taken to hospital

Only hours after cancelling his Saint Pablo tour

Kanye West has reportedly been taken to hospital for exhaustion hours after cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour.

A representative for West told The New York Times that the hit-maker was in hospital following a call from his doctor and was willingly taken to UCLA medical Center for evaluation.

Los Angeles police have confirmed they responded to a disturbance call at his home but instead deemed it a “medical emergency”.

“At 1.20pm the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request in the 900 block of North Laurel Avenue,” a spokesman for the fire department said.

“An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for assessment.”

Speaking before the incident, mother-in-law Kris Jenner said the rapper was left “exhausted” by a “gruelling tour”.

“He’s exhausted, he’s just really tired. He’s had a gruelling tour and it’s been a grind so he just needs some rest,” she told US TV show Extra at the Angel Ball in New York.

The event was supposed to be West’s wife Kim Kardashian’s first public appearance since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, but she did not appear.

West made headlines last week after announcing onstage in San Jose that he would have voted for Donald Trump in the US Presidential Election, which was greeted with boos by the crowd.

At the weekend West left a show early in Sacramento having only played three songs before going on a rant about Beyoncé, Jay Z and Hillary Clinton.

His scheduled date at the Forum in Los Angeles two night ago was also pulled. It was meant to make-up for a show at the start of the month in which he couldn’t perform due to losing his voice.

A representative for West eventually confirmed the full tour had been called off, with tickets being fully refunded at the point of purchase.
