Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation after cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He was at his trainer, Harley Pasternak’s home at the time and was “acting erratically.”
According to TMZ: “The police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer … but still resistant to going to the hospital.” His management and the law enforcement convinced him it was best he go.
Kanye was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation while he was at a friend’s house before someone decided to call police.
Law enforcement sources report that Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital, as standard protocol.
