Producer and rapper Kanye West has reportedly been hospitalized for stress and exhaustion. West has been in rare form on stage and social media.

The same man who during a hurricane relief effort for southern Louisiana and Mississippi before taking the stage at NBCUniversal’s A Concert for Hurricane Relief declared on Sept. 2, 2005, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people” just 11 years later declared his support for President-elect Donald J. Trump.

On Monday, Nov. 21, the Los Angeles Police Department answered a disturbance call at an address in Beverly Grove, just south of West Hollywood around 1:20 p.m. involving West. It quickly moved from a “disturbance” to a “medical emergency” and was handed off from the LAPD to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

West was treated for stress and exhaustion at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. According to the LA Times, “Paramedics eventually took a ‘medically stable’ man to the hospital for further assessment, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the department.”

Humphrey is bound by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, HIPPA Privacy Rule, from disclosing the man’s identity.

He was said to be in a state of “psychotic breakdown” and had to be handcuffed in the gurney during transit “for his own safety.”

Kris Jenner told Vanity Fair Monday night that West was “exhausted” but doing “good.”

Just this past Saturday, Nov. 19, West walked off the stage during a concert in Sacramento, California. But not before he issued some choice words for the Carters, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and Beyoncé Knowles.

“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth, even at the risk of my own life,” West starts. “At the risk of my own success. I’ll give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, you still ain’t called me.… Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”

On Sunday, hours before he was scheduled to perform at The Forum in Los Angeles, he canceled the show.

November is a tough month for West, whose mother, Donda West, died at the age of 58 in November 2007, following what should have been a routine liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation.

    I listened to Kanye and he told the truth about the industry–now he’s insane or that’s what everyone’s suppose to think. He was right about one thing–his safety–it is safer to keep your mouth shut and walk away–dude should have paid for therapy and vented in private. Now might be a good time to leave the country–sure hope he survives this one.

    HE DID A very dangerous thing, tupac was exactly the same , he was bewildered and angry at the system there is no illuminate , what people are referring to is the masters of the game…
    the big wigs clive davis , and rca and warner all are selling celebrities a dream , u gotta walk a thin line and once u make all that money to keep it flowing u gotta still hustle and flow. and kanye is sinking in truth robin william couldnt handle it,, bill cosby rebelled. and look at him… whitney houston micheal jackson . if u are a drug head or crazy u get eliminate fast .. suge knight needed tupac but those big wigs said he had to go…..
    kim and kanye will never make it kim is real upset with him, cause he was on stage instead of with her , he made cause his kids were in danger due to her flaunting them … im sure they had a heated fight and kanye lost ,, kim look mean and evil controlling .
    she might as well get over it … she know who set up that robbery and so does kanye
    kim should never been left alone she told all guards to leave but why????
