Kanye West admitted himself into an LA hospital for his own "health & safety" reasons.
According to various reports online, it appears Kanye West has been admitted to a Los Angeles hospital this afternoon following the news this morning that he cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour dates.
NBC LA reports that Yeezy is currently under observation at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and that he admitted himself Monday afternoon for his own “health & safety” issues. Sources said West was suffering from the exhaustion earlier on Monday, which led to the deletion of the remaining tour dates.

Edit: TMZ reports that cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He wasn’t at his home at the time, but TMZ was told paramedics had responded and ended up transporting Kanye to the hospital by ambulance.
"Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when someone — possibly the physician — decided he needed to be admitted. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye did not want to go and was placed in handcuffs when he was transported."
