Rapper Kanye West’s erratic behavior on November 19 has landed him in the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, according to numerous reports. West arrived at his Sacramento Life of Saint Pablo concert on Saturday over an hour late, performed three songs, and then stormed off the stage after a lengthy rant about Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Facebook’s, Mark Zuckerberg.
West made bold statements such as, “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth, even at the risk of my own life. At the risk of my own success. I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay-Z, call me, you still ain’t called me… Jay-Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.” Concert attendees took to social media, expressing their outrage and disappointment in West’s behavior. After the concert, West was reported to be at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s house getting checked out for severe sleep deprivation, when an unidentified party called the police.
