Kanye West has been admitted to hospital and placed under assessment in hospital, it has been reported.
Kim K’s grumpy hubby was taken to a hospital in handcuffs in Los Angeles after police were called to investigate at disturbance at Kanye’s home on Monday afternoon.
It has since been reported that Kanye is being treated for sleep deprivation and exhaustion.
“He is exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation,” a source told People magazine.
“He went to the hospital at will under the advice of his physician. He’s fine.”
The Los Angeles Police Department have confirmed it responded to a report of disturbance but the incident was described as a “medical emergency”.
A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said: “At 1.20pm, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request in the 900 block of North Laurel Avenue.
“An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for assessment.”
As yet it is unconfirmed how long Kanye will remain in hospital, however the rapper’s show promoter, Live Nation, confirmed that the rapper’s Saint Pablo Tour has been cancelled.
Kanye’s friends have told People magazine that they think he is suffering from “nervous exhaustion”.
“He’s just exhausted,” the source informed the weekly mag. “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.
“I’m sure Kim and his family played a part in the decision [to cancel the tour]. He’s incredibly devoted to his family.”
