Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.

According to law enforcement sources … 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. We’re told paramedics also 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 restrained when he was transported.

This comes just a few hours after Kanye abruptly cancelled his “Saint Pablo” tour due to exhaustion following rants against Hillary Clinton, Jay-Z, and Beyonce.
