Kanye West Reportedly Hospitalized For His "Own Health And Safety"

What is going on?

Wendy Williams may have been overly excited about Kanye West's rants, but it seems that his body wasn't too fond. Shocking news for fans today who woke to the news that West has been hospitalized. The controversial rapper has been taken to UCLA Medical Center to be treated for exhaustion, multiple sources report.

According to NBC News, Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon. According to their sources, though no crime took place, the decision to hospitalize West was "for his own health and safety."

Additionally, LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey told USA Today that the fire department responded to "an unspecified medical aid request," and that "an adult male, described as medically stable, was taken to an area hospital for further assessment."

Earlier this week, West shocked fans by abruptly canceling his remaining Saint Pablo tour dates, and made headlines for his bizarre on-stage rants. Neither West nor anyone from his camp has commented on West's hospitalization thus far, although it has come to many people's attention that this same week nearly 10 years ago, he laid his mother to rest.
