The NBC report cites "a source familiar with the case," noting that Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call at approximately 1:20 PT today. West was apparently hospitalized "for his own health and safety," according to the same source.

Earlier on Monday, a rep for West confirmed an announcement that he has cancelled the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo Tour. The cancellation and subsequent hospitalization come in the wake of a series of controversial performances in San Jose and Sacramento, in which West stated he would have voted for president-elect Donald Trump and addressed conflicts with Jay Z and Beyoncé.

A representative for West did not immediately respond to The FADER's request for comment.
