Outspoken rapper Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalised and put under observation after police officers in Los Angeles responded to a medical emergency call.
According to reports in the US media, the 39-year-old was taken to UCLA Medical Centre for a “psychiatric evaluation.”
Mr West’s mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, said he was “exhausted” after a “gruelling tour.”
A spokesman for the LA Fire Department said an unnamed man had been taken to hospital for “further assessment.”
“At 13:20 Pacific Time, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request.”
“An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment.”
The news of his hospitalisation comes a month, after wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed by gun men in Paris.
The popular ‘Gold Digger’ singer was booed at a recent Saint Pablo concert after launching a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyonce while on stage in Sacramento.
