Playing Kanye West Hospitalized After Cancelling U.S. Tour Dates, Bizarre Onstage Behavior

Kanye West was hospitalized on Monday after cancelling the remaining U.S. dates of his Saint Pablo tour.

LAPD officials confirmed to ET that they responded to a call in Los Angeles at around 1:20 in the afternoon. “Upon our arrival the disturbance call became a medical emergency only where LAFD responded,” police continued. “Our job was done there and they took over the medical emergency."

LAFD officials tell ET, "An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment."

According to a report by NBC News, West was hospitalized for “his own health and safety” after a medical welfare call.

The news comes just a few hours after West cancelled the remaining U.S. dates of his Saint Pablo tour. A rep for the rapper confirmed the tour news to ET, adding that all tickets would be refunded at point of purchase.

ET spoke to the rapper’s mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, on Monday night at the Angel Ball in New York City, where she said she thinks West is “exhausted.”

“[I think he’s] just really tired, yeah, it’s a grueling tour,” Jenner added.

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, was rumored to be attending the event in her first public appearance since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month, but it was not immediately clear whether she was actually present.

West was scheduled to play all throughout the rest of the year, canceling 21 shows total. In addition, the rapper was scheduled to play a show at the Forum in Los Angeles on Sunday night -- a makeup show for the Nov. 3 concert he cut short due to losing his voice -- but also canceled the concert three hours before it was set to begin.

The cancellations follow a string of bizarre onstage behavior, in which West spoke to crowds about supporting president-elect Donald Trump and took shots at longtime friends Beyonce and Jay Z, as well as Hillary Clinton -- before cutting several shows short after just a few songs.

"Beyonce, I was hurt. 'Cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling,'" West said at a concert in Sacramento over the weekend, referencing this year's MTV Video Music Awards. "Jay Z, call me bruh. You still ain't called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man."
