Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 22 (ANI): Kanye West, who recently ranted onstage his 'Saint Pablo' tour, has been taken to a medical centre for 'psychiatric evaluation'.

According to law enforcement sources, everyone around the 39-year-old singer convinced him it was best he go to a hospital after he was "acting erratically" while at his Harley Pasternak home, reports tmz.com.

Reportedly, West was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital as standard protocol.

While according to NBC News' sources, no criminal activity was involved and the decision to hospitalize the 'Fade' rapper was for "his own health and safety."

The news comes on the heels of Yeezy's controversial rant mid-concert about his recent rift between longtime friends Jay Z and Beyonce as well as his comments on Hillary Clinton and President-Elect Donald Trump.

"The remaining dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been canceled," a rep for West told E! News in a statement, adding, "Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg shared his thoughts on West's rant via a series of Instagram videos, calling him "crazy" and saying that West picked the "wrong night" to vent like that. (ANI)
