It’s been a whirlwind week for Kanye West, who was recently out on tour supporting his new album The Life of Pablo. West performed last Saturday in Sacramento, CA, launching into a major rant about politics, his personal life, other artists and more. He subsequently backed out of a performance in Los Angeles, CA just hours before the scheduled start time, and continued the trend by canceling over 20 tour dates nationwide on Monday, November 21st.

Today, we’ve received news that West was hospitalized, with reports citing that he was “acting erratically.” His wife, Kim Kardashian, apparently abandoned a scheduled appearance at the Angel Ball in New York, NY to fly cross-country and support West. According to reports, West’s hospitalization was for his own health and safety, due to sleep deprivation and exhaustion.

It seems that the balance between being a fashion mogul and the rigors of touring life have been stressful on Kanye West, causing the apparent breakdown. Let’s hope he can get the rest he needs and return to performing his music.
