Kanye West has been hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center, reportedly for a psychiatric evaluation. According to TMZ, paramedics were called while West was at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home this afternoon. Law enforcement told the site cops responded to a call for a welfare check on West around 1:20pm. At the time he was “acting erratically.”
Says the site:
We’re told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer … but still resistant to going to the hospital. We’re told everyone — his management and law enforcement — convinced him it was best he go.
Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was restrained by handcuffs to a gurney during transport to the hospital.
An LAFD spokesman, however, told People that West was stable at the time of transport. “An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment,” he said. Although no criminal activity had been committed, he added that paramedics at the scene made the decision to hospitalize West for “his own health and safety.”
The hospitalization comes less than a day after Kanye abruptly canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour dates and verbally bashed Jay Z and Beyonce during his Sacramento show.
His wife Kim Kardashian, who was slated to make her first appearance at the Angel Ball in NYC, has since bailed on the event and is reportedly en route back to Los Angeles.
