New details have emerged from Kanye West’s shock hospitalisation.
Yesterday new broke that Kanye had been rushed to hospital and been put under observation in Los Angeles.
Sources told NBC News that Los Angeles police responded to a call made by Kanye’s physician Dr Michael Frazam at around 1:20pm local time.
When they arrived at the scene Kanye was described as behaving “erratically”.
TMZ have reported that he was instantly put on a ‘5150’ psychiatric hold, which allows paramedics to restrain someone who is feared to be a danger to themselves or others.
As Kanye was not happy or keen to take the ambulance to hospital, he was handcuffed to a stretcher and was rushed to UCLA Medical Centre for a psychiatric examination.
It is believed that Kim Kardashian left New York instantly after hearing the news via jet to be by her husband’s side.
Kim and Kanye’s good friend John Legend told CBS this morning that he is extremely worried about his behaviour.
“We were with Kim actually, you know, right before all of that… I was concerned by what I saw, so hopefully he’s getting some rest and some time to figure things out.”
People magazine are reporting that friends close to the rapper have said that he’s suffering from a “spiritual crisis”.
The source told People,“He feels like he’s under spiritual attack, and has been for a while… Sometimes, darkness creeps in, and Kanye wrestles against it. He talks about that a lot. It’s exhausting, and it takes everything he’s got. He’s just so tired now; he’s very low energy and feels like there’s a grieving in his spirit. It’s very hard to explain, but something has happened recently, where he’s not the (Kanye) that everyone knows.”
The hospitalisation comes after Kanye made many headlines over the weekend, including onstage rants about President Donald Trump, calling out Beyoncé and Jay Z, cutting one of his shows and then cancelling the rest of his tour.
Our thoughts go out to the family during this time.
