Hip-hop mogul Kanye West was hospitalized in Los Angeles Monday afternoon, an official told ABC News.
One source said the rapper has been suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation, and went to the hospital voluntarily and under the consultation of his physician. A rep for the star did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Further details were not immediately available.
Before West canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, he made a number of statements on stage and in a new interview that has left his fans both puzzled and outraged.
On Monday morning, the concert promoter Live Nation announced that West was canceling the remaining 21 shows of his tour and that all tickets would be refunded.
The news came a day after he unexpectedly canceled his Los Angeles concert just hours before it was a scheduled to begin and two days after he walked off the stage 30 minutes into a concert in Sacramento.
West’s rep pointed to the statement from Live Nation when asked for comment.
But the 39-year-old hip hop artist said plenty before that on a variety of subjects before the cancellation of his tour. Here now is Kanye West in his own words.
