Kanye West Hospitalized in Los Angeles

Kanye West

Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalized.

Sources tell NBC News that the rapper was under observation at UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation on Monday afternoon (Nov. 21).

Law enforcement sources say police responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT at his trainer Harley Pasternak's home. Upon arrival, officers eventually deemed the situation a "medical emergency".

By the time paramedics arrived, he had calmed down, but was resistant to going to the hospital. However, people within his camp convinced him to go.

TMZ says Kanye was restrained by handcuffs on a gurney during transport to the hospital. Doctors believe he was suffering from severe sleep deprivation, sources said.

The news comes just hours after the cancellation of Kanye's "Saint Pablo Tour" was officially confirmed.
