Kanye West hospitalised after cancelling tour

Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West was hospitalised after abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour.

The rapper was hospitalised on Monday, a source confirmed to Variety.com.

The Police department here responded to a call of a “disturbance” at about 1:20 p.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time) on Monday. Upon arrival, authorities discovered a “medical emergency,” and West was transferred to the hospital by paramedics.

The hospitalisation comes after a tumultuous week for the rapper.

Last week, West made headlines by announcing at a San Jose concert that if he did vote in the election, he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump. The statement was met largely with boos from the crowd.

Just a few days later, on Saturday, West arrived at his Sacramento concert 90 minutes late and performed only two songs before launching into a rant slamming Beyonce, Jay Z, Mark Zuckerberg and others.

The hashtag #Kanyeisoverparty began trending on Twitter shortly after videos of the rant hit social media.
