Kanye West is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at UCLA Medical Center.
TMZ reports that the rapper was at his trainer, Harley Pasternak’s home and being checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when he began “acting erratically.”
Someone called the police to perform a welfare check on West. By the time the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived West had calmed down some, but refused to be taken to the hospital.
His management team and police advised the G.O.O.D. Music CEO that they believed it was in his best interest to seek additional help.
West was reportedly handcuffed to a gurney while being transported to the hospital.
This latest incident comes on the same day the rapper cancelled the remaining dates of his “Saint Pablo Tour,” due to what his management called “exhaustion.”
Within the last several days West has exhibited strange behavior.
During a show in San Jose Thursday, November 17, the rapper was booed as he ranted about his support for Donald Trump.
Two days later he cut his show short in Sacramento after only three songs, following a long diatribe about Beyonce, Jay Z, Drake, DJ Khaled, MTV and radio station programmers.
Finally, on Sunday, November 20, West abruptly cancelled a show in Los Angeles three hours before it was set to begin.
