A ‘medical welfare call’ to emergency services was responded to last night in Los Angeles. A man was taken into a psychiatric hospital for treatment. By force. He was handcuffed and escorted away ‘for his own good and others’ safety’. That man was Kanye West.

West’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner shilled this about it: “He’s just exhausted, he’s just really tired. He’s had a grueling tour and it’s been a grind so he just needs some rest.”
