Kanye West Reportedly Hospitalized; Celebrities Respond

Following a series of questionable events that included his support of Donald Trump and the abrupt cancellation of remaining tour dates, Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalized in Los Angeles. Police responded to a welfare call early Monday afternoon; according to LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey, “an adult male, described as medically stable, was taken to an area hospital for further assessment.” Other persons involved have not been revealed due to confidentiality.

Previous comments about JAY Z (and their subsequent rift) not-with-standing, Kanye’s dark week seemed to kick off last Thursday during the San Jose stop of his Saint Pablo tour, which saw him stating that — if he had voted in this year’s presidential election — he would have voted for Trump. He then followed that with a barely-three-song set in Sacramento a couple of days later, which (in addition to JAY Z) included direct shots at Beyoncé, Mark Zuckerberg and even Shia LaBeouf (for what it’s worth, a KiD CuDi reunion also took place that night). This was followed by several odd additions to his Instagram account, before the cancellation of a Los Angeles make-up show and — not long after — the remainder of his entire tour.

Yesterday saw much of the Kardashian clan in New York City at the Angel Ball to honour the late Robert Kardashian, Sr. During the event, Kris Jenner responded to to the tour cancellation, attributing the matter at hand to Kanye being “exhausted” and “really tired.” It was also reported that wife, Kim flew back to L.A. following the Angel Ball to tend to her husband.

Many of West’s peers have taken to social media in a show of support (or humor):
