Kanye West has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, West was taken to the hospital on Monday after police officers showed up at his home to do a welfare check around 1:20 p.m. PT. He was transported by ambulance.

Sources close to the singer tell the tabloid that West was being treated for “severe sleep deprivation” when someone — possibly a physician — said he needed to be admitted to a hospital.

The hospitalization comes just days after West exhibited some bizarre behavior and laid down a verbal smack down against Jay Z and Beyonce on Saturday night. He also recently canceled the remaining 21 concerts in his San Pablo tour.
