Kim Kardashian has jetted back to L.A. after her husband Kanye West was hospitalized for his own safety after suffering a psychotic breakdown, sources say.
The rapper was under 'psychiatric evaluation' at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles late Monday and the rest of his Saint Pablo Tour was cancelled as friends say the star is 'spiraling out of control',
Friends said the 'breakdown' was triggered by problems in his marriage to Kim Kardashian, paranoia over his rift with Jay Z and his seething jealousy of Beyoncé.
Law enforcement sources say that Los Angeles police had responded to a medical welfare call about 1:20pm local time.
He was allegedly being checked for 'severe sleep deprivation' when it was decided he needed to be admitted. Law enforcement sources confirmed he was hospitalized for his own health and safety.
Sources close to Kanye say he tried to resist being transported to the L.A. hospital and had to be handcuffed to a gurney in transit.
Kim had been due to make an appearance at an East Coast event this evening but jumped back on a plane to Los Angeles after the shock news of her husband's hospitalization.
She was later spotted disembarking a jet at the Van Nuys Airport, in Los Angeles, late Monday night and climbing into a car - presumably waiting to take her to UCLA so she could be at her husband's side.
Concerned fans have already began tweeting with the hashtag #PrayForKanye in the wake of the news.
