Kanye hos­pi­talised for ex­haus­tion, sleep de­pri­va­tion

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

KANYE WEST has been hos­pi­talised amid can­celling the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour.

The Fa­mous rap­per is said to be re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at a Los An­ge­les hospi­tal for “ex­haus­tion” and “sleep de­pri­va­tion”.

A source told Peo­ple mag­a­zine, “He is ex­hausted and cur­rently deal­ing with sleep de­pri­va­tion.

“He went to the hospi­tal at will un­der the ad­vice of his physi­cian.”

A Los An­ge­les Po­lice De­part­ment spokesper­son has also con­firmed that they re­ceived calls of a dis­tur­bance on Mon­day af­ter­noon (November 21). How­ever, it was deemed a “med­i­cal emer­gency”.

They said: “At 1.20 p.m., the Los An­ge­les 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 assess­ment.”

The 39-year-old star’s wife, Kim Kar­dashian West, 36, is be­lieved to have flown back to Los An­ge­les to be by her hus­band’s side and can­celled her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance since she was robbed at gun­point in Paris.

The Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans star – who has three­year-old North, and Saint, 11 months, with Kanye – was in New York with her mother Kris Jen­ner, and sis­ters Khloe and Khloe Kar­dashian at the 2016 An­gel Ball, but didn’t show up fol­low­ing Kanye’s ad­mis­sion to hospi­tal.

Jen­ner was ques­tioned about her son-in-law’s abrupt can­cel­la­tion of his tour and con­firmed that he is suf­fer­ing from ex­haus­tion.

Speak­ing on the red car­pet, she told En­ter­tain­ment Tonight: “I think he’s ex­hausted. Just re­ally tired. It’s a gru­elling tour.”

The Only One hit­maker’s hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tion comes a day af­ter he de­cided to pull the plug on a se­ries of con­certs he was due to play at across North Amer­ica this month and into De­cem­ber.

Kanye can­celled his show at The Fo­rum in Los An­ge­les on Sun­day, Novemn­ber 20, just a few hours be­fore he was ex­pected to go on stage.

A mes­sage on The Fo­rum’s Twit­ter page read: “Tonight’s show has been can­celled. Re­fund at point of pur­chase” (sic)

And he also turned up over an hour and a half late to his gig on Satur­day, November 19 be­fore flee­ing the stage af­ter mak­ing a dig at Jay Z.

In a clip taken by a fan at the show, he said: “Jay Z, I know you got kil­las. Please don’t send them at my head. If you keep fol­low­ing old mod­els, your ass is go­ing to get Hil­lary Clin­ton’d. Don’t go diss­ing Bey­oncé, she’s great. Tay­lor Swift is great. We are all great.”
