The first bout of news was Kanye West cancelled the final 21 days of his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour. Now it has been revealed he has been hospitalised due to severe exhaustion.
This may have come as a shock to his fans, they were concerned for his well-being. After his last performance in Sacramento where he pissed off fans by showing up three hours late, performing three songs and then ranting about Beyonce and Jay Z for half a hour before leaving the stage, it may have been inevitable. Kanye‘s exhaustion, both physically and mentally can be seen in this footage of Kid Cudi and West hugging on stage at the show, which has since gone viral. Clearly West needed a huge hug and Cudi was the one to give it to him.

LAPD responded to a call at 1:20pm PT who stated there was no crime being committed but an ‘adult male had been taken to hospital for further medical assessment’. However, LAPD declined to say who the person was, citing medical privacy laws. It has since been confirmed that it was West. His personal physician Dr. Michael Farzam had called 911 on Monday stating his patient ‘Jim Jones’ was suffering from temporary psychosis as a result of sleep deprivation and dehydration.
A source close to West says that he has been in ‘spiritual crisis for a while now’.
“He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit.”
Due to the cancellation of the rest of his tour that was supposed to run into the New Year, it’s certain that he will be getting the rest he so desperately needs. Celebrities have rallied around him, wishing nothing but good vibes.
PRAYING FOR KANYE. PRAYING HE HAS THE RIGHT ENERGY SURROUNDING HIM DURING THIS TIME. SENDING PEACE AND LOVE. 🙏🏿

Fingers crossed West gets the treatment and rest he needs soon. It can’t be easy being a celebrity who has to be on all the time, and many people forget that despite all of the outlandish stuff he says, he still is a father, a husband and a human being. Good luck Ye!
