Shortly after canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour on Monday morning, Kanye West was hospitalized at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
According to multiple sources, police responded to a medical welfare call on Monday afternoon, but when they arrived at Kanye’s residence, he wasn’t home. The incident was eventually transferred to the Los Angeles Fire Department, who classified it as a “psychiatric emergency.” At the time, Kanye was at his personal trainer’s home, where he was reportedly “acting erratically.” However, contrary to previous reports, he was compliant when brought to the hospital.
Once there, Kanye was treated for sleep deprivation and exhaustion, before a member of the hospital staff decided he needed to be admitted. He is currently “under observation” and undergoing examination.
His wife, Kim Kardashian, was originally scheduled to make her first public appearance since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October at the Angel Ball on Monday night, but skipped out on the event when she found out her husband had been hospitalized. Her mother, Kris, and sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, still attended the New York City event.
Since then, People reports that while Kim has been “amazing” and extremely supportive of her husband in his time of need, but reportedly, things aren’t as perfect as they seem — and the two have been been going through some marriage troubles since the Paris robbery.
“The last few months have been difficult for their marriage,” a source close to the couple said. “They bicker a lot and things are not great … With the tour canceled, Kim hopes that Kanye will feel better soon. He needs to shape up for them to work out.”
The source adds that Kanye has been “exhausted and overwhelmed” lately, which tends to fuel his unexpected outbursts and rants. However, another source insists that even if Kim isn’t the biggest fan of her husband’s controversial opinions, she’s extremely protective of him and worried for his well-being.
And since the news broke on Monday, it seems Kanye’s friends are just as worried as she is. On Tuesday morning, John Legend revealed in an interview with CBS that he and his wife Chrissy Teigen had been with the couple shortly before Kanye was hospitalized.
“We were with Kim, actually, you know, right before all of that,” he said. “I was concerned by what I saw. Hopefully he’s getting some rest and some time to figure things out.”
Many celebrities (including a few of his famous friends) have also tweeted out their love and support for the rapper, wishing him a speedy recovery.
Kanye’s admittance to the hospital follows an especially controversial week for the rapper, in which he declared his support for Donald Trump at a concert in San Jose before ranting about Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, and more at a show in Sacramento just a couple days later.
