Another update has surfaced on the bizarre Kanye West situation, after the rapper cancelled the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour and was subsequently hospitalised yesterday.
TMZ reports that West’s doctor made the call to 911 to have him taken to hospital, because his patient was suffering from “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration”.
The doctor also warned the 911 dispatcher that his patient had tried to assault a staff member at a gym, and would likely become violent towards police when they arrived to help.
The police reportly said Kanye was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold, and was handcuffed to a stretcher before being taken away.
West’s hospitalisation comes after he revealed he would have voted for Donald Trump in the US Presidential election, as well as a strange rant about Beyoncé and Jay-Z during a recent show, which he abruptly ended early.
The state of Kanye’s remaining scheduled European dates on the Saint Pablo tour are now looking shaky, and any likelihood of him extending the tour to Australia appears quite uncertain, despite his wife Kim Kardashian teasing Aussie tour dates for 2017 earlier this year.
