Kanye West Reportedly Rushed To Melbourne Hospital

Kanye West was reportedly rushed to Melbourne’s Epworth Hospital in Richmond yesterday afternoon, prior to taking the stage at Rod Laver Arena for his final Melbourne performance.

There are conflicting reports on the reasons for his hospital visit and the severity of his symptoms. According to Woman’s Day, West was give an “emergency MRI” just after 2pm. The publication quotes an eyewitness saying that Kanye was “stretchered in surrounded by security” and that panic surrounded the star.

The eyewitness also said that Kanye had one hand covering his face with something white and that doctors were concerned he may have suffered a seizure. US publication TMZ refute those claims, and attributed his hospital visit to “intense migraine”.

Still, both reports say that Yeezy was later discharged from hospital and made it to the venue last night to perform the second of two Melbourne shows, presumably back in full swing. Kanye showed no signs of illness at the previous night’s show, delivering one of his traditional Runaway rants, aiming it at an anonymous member of his crew.

As reported by Music FeedsGregory Moskovitch, the rest of Kanye’s set was filled with circle pits, LED screens, bedazzled Margiela masks and a sample of Cold As Ice by Foreigner. Standard Kanye fare.

Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian have landed in Sydney today for his next run of shows and will finish off the tour in Brisbane next week.
