Kanye West was hospitalized yesterday following a stretch of erratic behavior. His mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, broke the family's silence and spoke out on his behalf. "I think he’s exhausted. Just really tired," she said, according to Entertainment Tonight. "It’s a grueling tour."
This is a far different story from press reports on the rapper. According to TMZ, Kanye was "acting erratically" and cops responded to a check on his welfare. His management and police convinced him to go to the hospital. He was handcuffed to the gurney in the ambulance, which is apparently standard procedure. Sources cited severe sleep deprivation to TMZ as the reason cops were asked to come in the first place.
Following a series of strange rants, Kanye has canceled his The Saint Pablo Tour. Kim Kardashian is apparently at her husband's side while Kris Jenner and daughters Khloe and Kourtney were posting selfies from the Angel Ball in New York City.
