According to recent reports, Kanye West has been hospitalized following an emergency services call.
Police say they had received a “disturbance call” on Monday afternoon, November 21, but did not name the singer.
The disturbance was later deemed a medical incident and the fire department responded.
A spokesman for the LA Fire Department said an unnamed man had been taken to hospital for “further assessment”.
“At 13:20 Pacific Time, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an unspecified medical aid request,” a spokesperson for the service said.
“An adult male described as medically stable was taken to an area hospital for further assessment.”
Further details of the incident naming Kanye West varied in conflicting reports from multiple news sources.

According to NBC News, officers had been responding to a “medical welfare call” and the decision to hospitalize the rapper was for his own health and safety, citing “multiple authorities familiar with the case”.
TMZ reported that Kanye West was taken to hospital for “psychiatric evaluation” and had been seeking treatment for “severe sleep deprivation”.
The Los Angeles Times said that there had been a 911 call from the address, citing a fire department source.
Neither Kanye West nor his representatives have made an official statement about the incident.
Before news broke of Kanye West’s hospital treatment, his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, spoke to media about his reasons for canceling his shows.
Kris Jenner told Extra show: “He’s exhausted, he’s just really tired. He’s had a grueling tour and it’s been a grind so he just needs some rest.”
Some celebrities took to social media to voice their concern and offer well wishes to Kanye West.
Rapper 9th Wonder tweeted: “Been knowing the brother upwards of 13 years. Mental healing is a serious thing, no matter what. Stay strong Kanye West.”
Comedian Ronald Funches wrote: “I wish Kanye West love and support through his journey. Mental health is no joke and a constant battle and I hope he makes more dope music.”
Kim Kardashian was expected to appear at a NYC social event on November 21 – her first public appearance since she was robbed in Paris in October – but she did not attend.
Kanye West had canceled all remaining dates on his current tour after abandoning a Sacramento performance at the weekend.
The rapper had performed just three songs on Saturday night, November 19, before embarking on an unscripted rant, criticizing Beyonce and Jay Z, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Hillary Clinton.
Kanye West criticized Mark Zuckerberg for failing to give him $53 million to get out of debt and said he was hurt that Jay Z failed to visit his family after last month’s robbery.
The rapper then appeared to suggest that Jay Z employed hit men, saying: “Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head.”
“Get ready to have a field day, press, because the show’s over,” Kanye West said, as he dropped his microphone and walked out.
Kanye West’s promoter, Live Nation, has announced refunds for all tickets from the show.
No reason has been given for the cancelation of the remaining dates.
In a long-awaited interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner revealed he is, in fact, a woman.
“Yes, and for all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” Bruce Jenner told Diane Sawyer within the first five minutes of his highly anticipated 20/20 interview on April 24.
Bruce Jenner said he began the process in the 1980s, after a lifetime of feeling uncomfortable in his skin.
He said this is the last time he will be known as Bruce Jenner – but didn’t reveal a new name yet.
The former Olympian said during the sit-down: “It’s going to be tough. I’ve been thinking about this day forever and what I should do with my life… how do I tell people what I’ve been through? Today is that day, and I get to choose.”
During the 1980s, Bruce Jenner began taking female hormones and continued doing so for five years. He confided in his older sister and admitted dressing up in her clothes when younger.
Bruce Jenner says he dreams as a woman.
Eventually, he stopped taking the female hormones because he didn’t want to disappoint people.
He has been back on female hormones for the past year and a half.
Bruce Jenner says throughout the years, we have seen him out in public dressed as a woman but he wasn’t recognized.
His announcement comes after longtime speculation that he was transitioning to female.
However, he maintained: “I’m not gay.”
While Bruce and third wife Kris Jenner divorced in 2014, he confessed: “I loved Kris, I had a wonderful life with her. I learned a lot from her.”
The interview touched on several key points in Bruce Jenner’s personal history, like his resurgence of stardom thanks to family reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
He said: “We’ve done 425 episodes, I think, over almost 8 years. Over the entire run, I kept thinking to myself, <<Oh my god. this whole thing, the one real true story in the family was the one I was hiding and nobody knew about it>>.”
“The one thing that could really make a difference in people’s lives was right here in my soul, and I couldn’t tell it.”
At one moment of the special, Diane Sawyer spoke about how different generations received Bruce Jenner: some know her as the patriarch of reality clan the Kardashians, and others a world class athlete.
The former Olympian responded: “God said, <<Let’s give him the soul of a female, and let’s see how he deals with that>>.”
Bruce Jenner says he was terrified to tell his children, as he did not want to hurt them.
He first told son Brandon, 33, who tells Sawyer that his father was very nervous during their conversation.
“When you’re that close to somebody, you notice little things … I feel like I am getting an upgraded version of my dad.”
Bruce Jenner, who happily showed Sawyer a black lace dress in his closet, says he will always be Dad to his children.
At the time of the interview, Bruce Jenner says his daughters have been reluctant to see the person he calls “her.”
Bruce Jenner says Kim Kardashian has been the most accepting, saying: “Girl, you gotta rock it baby… you gotta look really good.”
The two-hour special was long expected to be Bruce Jenner’s official announcement that he is undergoing gender reassignment, which had been widely speculated on for months.
Bruce Jenner’s mother said she supports his decision to become a woman and admits that she didn’t know of the struggles he dealt with while being a man.
Esther Jenner, 88, said that if her son’s transformation can help others who are struggling with their identity, “then it will all be worth it”.
Bruce Jenner’s mom confirmed on February 3 the former decathlon champion is becoming a woman.
“Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do,” Esther Jenner told Radaronline.com.
“I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.”
Esther Jenner admitted she “did not know of his” inner struggle with being a man until recently.
“I just learned about” his transition, she said.
“Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it.”
Bruce Jenner’s mom said she loves her son just the same.
“I support him whole-heartedly,” she said.
“I just love him like I always have.”
Bruce Jenner, she said, will be an inspiration to thousands of others who have long felt themselves women trapped in men’s bodies.
She added: “I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker.
“He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted.”
According to his mother, Bruce Jenner’s transformation will be televised.
Until now, Bruce Jenner’s transformation was a poorly-kept secret as the athlete who once graced a Wheaties box began transforming in front of America’s eyes, appearing in public with long flowing locks and lipstick on his lips.
While his former wife, Kris Jenner, has reportedly been struggling with his decision to become a woman, the Kardashian girls have been supportive.

The Kardashian – Jenner clan revealed their latest family holiday card

Also missing from the frame is Kim Kardashian’s 6-month-old daughter, North, although the lack of a few loved ones doesn’t seem to have dampened anyone’s photo shoot fun.

“It wasn’t some huge shock for the older kids,” the reality star said during an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show in Sydney, Australia, on November 21.
“[They’ve been] living apart for maybe like a year now,” she confirmed.
“I even said on the show, <<Once you guys put that much space in between you guys, I don’t think you will ever move back together>>,” she added.
“<<Because you kind of get comfortable in that space>>. So I wasn’t for him moving out in the first place. I just kind of saw it going down this road.”

The transition may not have been too tough on Kim, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, but the decision to begin a new chapter proved to be a bit more difficult for younger sisters Kendall and Kylie, Bruce Jenner’s biological kids.
“They have a harder time kind of understanding it,” Khloe Kardashian admitted.
“They were like, <<Well, why don’t you guys just get a divorce then?!>>.”
But as it turns out, the change actually helped their parents’ relationship.
“They’re nicer to each other [now]. My mom could get frustrated with him very quickly. Or he would always want to play golf and be gone,” she said, but now “he actually wants to come over more and be around us more. I would say it’s a really positive thing. My mom and him, there’s no animosity”.
As for dating post-split, that’s apparently a different story.
“[They aren’t] looking to be with other people right now,” Khloe Kardashian explained.
