Kanye West has been hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation after some erratic behavior left some of his close friends and family fearing for his safety. 

Per TMZ, the 39-year-old husband of Kim Kardashian is in Los Angeles hospital, where he will be checked over by a doctor to make sure he is okay. 

Earlier today, cops apparently responded to a welfare check on Kanye when his behavior became a cause for concern. 

This dramatic development follows a week in which Kanye claimed he would have voted for Donald Trump… insulted Beyonce on stage and then ended a concert early… and the canceled the remainder of his tour entirely.

Kanye was not at his home when the police called, but he was eventually tracked down at his trainer’s home and transported to the hospital.

The husband of Kim Kardashian was allegedly being looked over for sleep deprivation by a medical professional, someone who believed the star needed even more help than he could provide

West reportedly did not want to admit there was anything wrong with him and had to actually be restrained in order to be placed under a physician’s care.

He was handcuffed to a gurney on the way to the hospital.

As previously mentioned, rapper has had a troubling few days, with fans questioning whether he was headed for a meltdown. Or whether he had already experienced one.

This was fueled over the weekend when he took aim at Beyonce and Jay Z after showing up 90 minutes late to his own concert in Sacramento. 

When he started shading Beyonce, it was pretty clear he had some beef with her over the VMAs. 

"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.’" 

"Now, don’t go trying to diss Beyonce," Kanye told his audience.

"She is great Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people."

Of course, not everyone would agree with that random assessment. But no matter. Kanye wasn’t done ranting and raving.

"Sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win."

"F-ck winning," he said.

"F-ck looking cool. F-ck looking cool F-ck being cool. F-ck all that, bruh."

"I been sent here to give y’all my truth, even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I been sent here to give y’all the truth."

Right, well, sure. Okay then. Whatever you say, ‘Ye!

He then turned his attention to Jay Z, his occasional best friend, basically saying Beyonce’s husband had contract killers on his payroll. 

It was pretty bizarre and you can watch the full video below:

From there came the word that Kanye had canceled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour

All of this definitely fueled the flame that something was not right with him. 

Hopefully, he gets the help he needs. 

We extend our thoughts to his family and wish him a speedy recovery. 

What do you think about all of this?
