Kanye West Reportedly Taken to Hospital for Psychiatric Evaluation

Kanye West has allegedly been taken to a Los Angeles hospital by ambulance.

According to TMZ, Kanye was hospitalised after police responded to a call for a welfare check at 1:20pm in LA.

He reportedly wasn't at home at the time, but was later transported to hospital by paramedics. 

Sources allege Kanye was being checked for sleep deprivation when doctors admitted him for further psychiatric evaluations.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ Kanye was restrained when he was transported due to his reluctance to go with authorities. 

The news comes only days after Kanye cancelled his Saint Pablo Tour following an on-stage tirade against former friends Beyonce and Jay Z.

This isn't the first time Kanye has launched into confusing public rants, having acted similarly on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this year.
