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.
A source familiar with the case said Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call about 1:20 p.m. (4:20 p.m. ET). No criminal activity was involved; the decision to hospitalize West was for his own health and safety, the sources said.

The cancellation of West’s tour comes on the heels of a rough week for the rapper, who has made controversial statements and feuds with fellow celebrities a centerpiece of his art and persona.
