Details in Kanye West’s Hospitalization Emerge
Further details in Kanye West's hospitalization has emerged.
According to TMZ, the rapper's personal physician called 911, during which he warned the dispatcher that Kanye was not violent at the time, but would likely become violent when police arrived to help him.
Law enforcement sources say the caller referred to Kanye as a male with mental illness. Dr. Michael Farzam said his patient's name was "Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5'8", 175 lbs ... suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration."
A police report said the doctor placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold and wanted him taken to UCLA Medical Center. It also said that Kanye attempted to assault a staff member at the gym.
Upon arrival, the rapper was eventually handcuffed to the stretcher, due to protocol when police are called on a 5150 hold, and taken to the hospital.
Kanye's current status is unknown.
