Kanye West hospitalised after tour cancellation

KANYE West has been hospitalised and is under observation at a Los Angeles area hospital.

American TV news network NBC News reports, according to unnamed sources, that the hip-hop star was admitted following a medical welfare call to Los Angeles police.

No criminal activity was involved, according to NBC News, and the decision to hospitalise West was for his own health and safety, NBC's sources said.

West's hospital admission comes after he abruptly cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour and a bizarre rant about Jay-Z, Beyonce and US President elect Donald Trump.

The Only One hitmaker has decided to pull the plug on a series of concerts he was due to play across North America this month and into December.

The 39-year-old singer has yet to publicly comment on the premature ending to his tour but sources claim he axed the remaining dates because of "exhaustion".

An insider told People magazine: "He's just exhausted. He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line.

"He's a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work - which is extremely important to him - and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out. I'm sure Kim and his family played a part in the decision (to cancel the tour). He's incredibly devoted to his family."

The dramatic turn of events comes after a social media blackout from West,who hasn't tweeted in a month, and his wife Kim Kardashian West, who has been off social media ever since she was held at gunpoint by robbers.
