Kanye West Mental State

It was 1:20 PM PT when cops received a call about Kanye West’ erratic behavior. He was in his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home at that time. The call was made for a welfare check on the rapper.

Though the rapper was calm when paramedics came, he still refused quite strongly to go to the hospital. Because of this, he was handcuffed in a gurney on the way to UCLA Medical Center.

Recently, prior to the event, the rapper had a breakdown of sorts in his San Pablo concert. After canceling it after just 30 minutes and using half of the time to rant about Beyonce, Jay-Z, Donald Trump and even Mark Zuckerberg.

According to his personal physician Michael Farzam, the rapper’s mental breakdown was caused by sleep deprivation and dehydration. As they were worried about his state, Kanye West was taken to the hospital to get a psych checkup.

His wife, Kim Kardashian was also reported to have canceled her return to the limelight in Keeping Up With The Kardashians after hearing about the incident. She rushed to the hospital immediately after learning about his current state.

At the moment, there has not been any reports of the star’s mental state or updates about how he is doing.
