Kanye West hospitalized after cancelling Saint Pablo Tour

Written by on November 23, 2016


Days after announcing the cancellation of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West has been hospitalized in Los Angeles, CA.

The hip hop superstar was taken to the UCLA Medical Center on Monday due to stress related issues. West was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold or “5150”, by his personal physician, Dr. Michael Farzam.

Prior to the cancellation of his tour, West recently made several rants that have since gone viral.

Last Friday, during a concert in San Jose, West revealed to the audience that he did not vote, although he would have supported Trump had he voted. The statement did not sit well with fans of West. Some fans took to social media to share their feelings towards West’s statement.

On Saturday, while in Sacramento, West refused to continue the scheduled concert after performing just four songs. He then ranted about his feelings towards Jay Z, Beyonce, Mark Zuckerberg, and the media.

Promoters Live Nation, StubHub, and Ticketmaster are now issuing refunds.

West remains in the UCLA Medical Center.
