A medical emergency left US rap star Kanye West hospitalized on Monday after canceling his Saint Pablo Tour.
The rapper is apparently going through psychiatric tests after being examined for exhaustion. He is being treated at a University of California, Los Angeles clinic.
Kanye’s hospitalization was made public hours after the rapper took fans by surprise with his onstage outburst against fellow artists Jay Z and Beyoncé.
Afterwards, he canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour.
The tour was set to run through to 31 December. However, all 21 remaining shows have been canceled while the rapper ended up in the hospital.
According to AFP, LA police confirmed that officers had been called out to investigate a ‘disturbance’ at the rapper’s Los Angeles home. Subsequently, it turned out to be a “medical emergency”.
Apparently, working round the clock has taken a toll on the rapper who allegedly canceled the tour because he was exhausted.
“He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line,” a source was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, fans inundated social media with mixed feelings over Kanye’s recent onstage outburst, as well as the sudden cancellation of the tour.
While some fans labeled the rapper’s behaviour as “crazy,” others accused him of “losing the plot”.
West’s concert promoter, Live Nation, announced earlier Monday that the Saint Pablo Tour had been called off. The cancellation follows several days of bizarre behavior from US rap star Kanye West.
The rapper had a turbulent few days which started Thursday night during his concert in San Jose, California when he went on a political rant about his support for President-elect Donald Trump.
On Saturday, West showed up late for his concert in Sacramento, California. He performed just two songs and used the rest of his time on stage to talk about more of his political views and criticizing his fellow artists.
