Kanye West Hospitalized for Exhaustion, Celebs Reach Out

By Annie Reuter

Kanye West was hospitalized for exhaustion hours after he cancelled the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour on Monday (Nov. 21).

According to the New York Times, the rapper’s doctor made the call to take him to the hospital due to his recent erratic behavior, and he “was taken willingly” to U.C.L.A. Medical Center for evaluation for exhaustion.

A police report obtained by TMZ reveals Kanye’s doctor requested that the rapper be put on a psychiatric hold after he allegedly attempted to assault an employee at a gym. It’s unconfirmed whether that hold was put into effect. Kanye’s doctor says he had “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”

The hospitalization comes days after his Sacramento concert was cut short after a 30-minute rant. This time, his grievances were with Jay Z and Beyoncé, radio programmers, Hillary Clinton, Google and Mark Zuckerberg. Days prior, he said that if he had voted, he would have cast his ballot for Donald Trump, which caused considerable consternation in the hip-hop community.

Many of West’s peers are speaking out for the singer, urging those to pray for his health and wishing him a speedy recovery.
