*Kanye West is starting to scare us. The rapper was all over social media after going on a tirade and ending the show after playing only 3 songs at his Sacramento Saint Pablo Tour date at the new Golden 1 Center arena on Saturday.
On Sunday he cancelled another (make up) performance at the Forum in Inglewood (Los Angeles) California. Then on Monday, he cancelled the remaining 21 dates on his Saint Pablo Tour citing exhaustion.
Now we’ve learned that West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation. And get this, he had to be restrained in the ambulance.
Handcuffed to a gurney.
TMZ reports their law enforcement sources said they responded to a “welfare check” call on West around 1:20 pm PT from the home of Harley Pasternak, the rapper’s trainer, saying West was “acting erratically.”
According to a TMZ report…
…police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer … but still resistant to going to the hospital. We’re told everyone — his management and law enforcement — convinced him it was best he go.
“He’s just exhausted,” the insider told the site. “He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line.”
The source added that the harrowing robbery of West’s wife Kim Kardashian in Paris last month also took its toll on the rapper.
“All the time spent away from his family has been a stress on him as well,” the insider told TMZ. “They are most important to him.”
Sources close to the rapper say Kanye was being seen by a doctor while at Pasternak’s house due to severe sleep deprivation.
This story is developing for sure.
