Rapper Kanye West has been hospitalized in Los Angeles – reportedly for stress and exhaustion – after abruptly cancelling the rest of his Saint Pablo concert tour, including a Canadian date in Toronto on Dec. 18.

Police were called to a house Monday for what turned out to be a medical situation and say West was taken to hospital and placed on psychiatric hold.

Only hours earlier, he’d pulled the plug on his tour after days of erratic behaviour that included an epic rant against Jay Z, Beyonce and Mark Zuckerberg early in his Saturday show in Sacramento before he left the stage.
