TMZ and NBC are reporting that Kanye West was hospitalized after canceling his Saint Pablo tour this afternoon. The LAPD also confirmed to BuzzFeed that a person was transported from West’s home to a hospital.

Police reportedly responded to a medical welfare call at about 1:20 p.m. NBC reports that West was hospitalized for his own health and safety, and no criminal activity was involved. TMZ also reports that West “did not want to go, and was restrained when he was transported.”

The Saint Pablo tour was canceled on Monday afternoon following a pair of controversial rants he made during his last two shows. West said he would’ve voted for Trump during last week’s concert in San Jose, and he ended his Saturday show in Sacramento after performing just three songs and verbally raging against Jay Z and Beyoncé.
