Kanye West’s alleged madness, ‘arrest’ and hospitalization

The year 2016 has proved a difficult one for Kanye West and family. The rapper’s “Saint Pablo” tour has been widely criticized for his political rants which suddenly took a different turn towards Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg and others.

On Monday afternoon, a stressed-out Yeezy ran out of luck and became mentally unstable, reports say.

Before he received medical care, the rapper was reportedly handcuffed to a stretcher due to his violent nature.

According to a report from TMZ, it was Kanye West’s personal doctor who called in 911 after noticing an unusual behavior from the rapper.

The physician was said to have warned the 911 emergency dispatcher that Kanye was not violent but mysteriously turned hysterical after paramedics arrived to help him.

Police officers told TMZ that the emergency call came in as “a male with mental illness”.

Dr. Michael Farzam said his patient’s name was “Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5’8″, 175 lbs … suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration,” the report adds.

A police report shows the doctor told cops he had placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold and wanted him taken to UCLA Medical Center.

However, TMZ wrote that it is unconfirmed whether the doctor actually placed Kanye on a 5150.

Prior to his hospitalization, Kanye had attempted an assault on a staff member while at the gym, Dr. Farzam told police. For this reason, the father-0f-two was handcuffed to a stretcher, as police safety protocol demands, before he received medical assistance. Police say this is necessary whenever someone is on a 5150 hold.

Name any genius who’s not “insane” in one way or the other – and that will be enough to forgive Kanye because he truly is, one genius of a kind.

Yeezy has told everyone he’s a God, so there’s no need to panic. He will get through this phase. The rapper rhymed with the following lyrics in his Yeezy track “I’m a God”:

“…I am a god. Even though I’m a man of God. My whole life in the hand of God. So y’all better quit playin’ with God…”

A lot seem to be going on in Kanye’s life at this moment. Kim Kardashian has reportedly been living with momager Kris Jenner since the rapper kicked-off his “Saint Pablo” tour. The decision was due to her husband’s erratic behavior, reports say.

“The guy just needs some rest. Sleep deprivation and exhaustion,” a source close to West tells ET.

Another unnamed source disclosed to ET that Kanye’s mental breakdown was an outcome of stress and other factors.

It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke,” the tipster says.

“There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. He has a lot going on: multiple fashion lines, the tour, his business, being a father. And then the Paris incident also threw him for a big loop. His mother passed away this time of year. So, there is a lot going on right now. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while.”
