Add Kanye West to the ever growing list of men who entered the Kardashian women’s world and promptly crashed and burned. West, like so many before him, has officially melted down and is reportedly receiving treatment in hospital just a day after cancelling his entire Life of Saint Pablo tour.

Sources say Kanye West was transported to a LA hospital and is currently “under observation” late Monday after a bizarre series of rants and the abrupt cancellation of his national tour.
The hospital stay followed a week of strange incidents during which the rapper publicly threw shade at Beyoncé and Jay Z and retroactively endorsed President-elect Donald Trump while admitting that he didn’t bother to vote.
