After abruptly canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalized in Los Angeles.
Officer Mike Lopez from the Los Angeles Police Department told USA TODAY that the LAPD responded to a disturbance call at 1:20 p.m. PT Monday on North Laurel Avenue in West Hollywood. He said no crime had been committed.
LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey said the fire department responded to "an unspecified medical aid request" in the 900 block of North Laurel Avenue. "An adult male, described as medically stable, was taken to an area hospital for further assessment," he said.
Neither department could identify the person involved, citing medical privacy laws.
The incident comes after West, 39, ignited a Twitter storm Thursday by saying he "would've voted for Donald Trump" at a concert in Inglewood, Calif.
More recently, West cut his Saturday concert in Sacramento short after several songs, but not before calling out Beyoncé and addressing Jay Z: "Call me, brah, you still ain't call me. Jay Z, I know you got killas, please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man," he said. The latter show left fans so upset that Ticketmaster refunded their tickets.
The 21 remaining tour dates that West had scheduled through New Year's Eve were canceled early Monday.
On Monday night, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner attended the Angel Ball in New York City to honor the late Robert Kardashian Sr. Jenner offered ET this explanation on the red carpet as to why West canceled his shows: "I think he’s exhausted. Just really tired," she said. "It’s a grueling tour."
Kim Kardashian, West's wife, wasn't in attendance. CNN reported that she arrived in New York Monday for the event, but flew back to L.A. to be with her husband.
Famous friends and fans tweeted messages in support of West:
West's representatives have not immediately responded to USA TODAY's request for comment.
