Kanye West reportedly hospitalized after abruptly canceling remaining leg of Saint Pablo Tour

Kanye West was reportedly hospitalized Monday after he abruptly pulled the plug on his Saint Pablo Tour.


The Los Angeles Police Department visited the rapper as part of a disturbance call at about 1:20 PST, Variety reported citing a source. Authorities discovered a “medical emergency” and West was transferred to the hospital by paramedics.


The alleged hospitalization comes just a few days after the rapper made statements onstage about how he "would have voted for Donald Trump” before abruptly ending his Sacramento concert.


A representative for the rapper said Monday the remaining dates of West's current tour have been canceled. No reason was given.

The tour, now in California and with dates through Dec. 31, had future stops in Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., among others.


Refunds would be made available, the venue tweeted. West’s label, Ticketmaster nor Live Nation have given any explanation for the cancellation.

West's wild 10-minute tirade was captured on video by Sacramento concert-goers. The musician told the audience he was on his "Trump (expletive) tonight." He talked about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV at the stop of his Saint Pablo Tour.

Saturday's outburst and truncated show became a hot topic on Twitter and other social platforms Sunday morning, as amateur videos circulated of West's rant where, among other things, he said he was hurt because he heard Beyonce refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him. He also urged her husband Jay Z to call him and "talk to me like a man."

West took aim at radio stations for playing the same stuff "over and over and over," too and also addressed Hillary Clinton.

"It's a new world, Hillary Clinton, it's a new world," West said. "Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bro."

The performer said he was putting his life, career and "public well-standing" at risk by talking to the fans in the audience "like this," adding that his Saint Pablo tour "is the most relevant (expletive) happening."

He continued: "I am here to change things. And things won't change until people admit their own falsehoods. I got the visions, bro. That's what I've been blessed with. My vision. I'm not always going to say things the perfect way, the right way. But I'm going to say how I feel."

West’s tour was slated to resume Tuesday night in Fresno, but LA Times music writer Gerrick Kennedy reported that West had told Saint Pablo tour crew members that the remaining U.S. dates were canceled.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
