Kanye West Nervous Breakdown: Being Treated for Stress, Sleep Deprivation, and Exhaustion
The “Heartless” hitmaker was taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a disturbance call yesterday afternoon (November 21) at 1:20 p.m. EST. The case was cited as a “medical emergency” and came just a few hours after the record producer officially canceled his Life of Saint Pablo tour. The incident occurred days after West abruptly walked off the stage at his Saturday night (November 19) concert in Sacramento, and called off his show at The Forum on Sunday (November 20), only three hours before his scheduled performance.
Kanye West’s rant at this concert left audiences angry and disappointed, after he not only showed up over an hour late, but also performed three songs before storming off the stage. He addressed stars like Beyoncé, Jay-Z and even Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg saying, “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’ll 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.” After facing a wave of backlash from his fans, Ticketmaster has been forced to refund tickets to the fans of West’s sold-out show.
