The news comes just hours after Kanye shocked fans with a onstage outburst against former friends Jay Z and Beyonce, and subsequently canned his Saint Pablo Tour.
The tour was reportedly set to run up until December 31, but all shows have officially been cancelled.
According to international gossip site TMZ, Kanye was apparently being treated at a Los Angeles clinic, and was undergoing psychiatric test, after being examined for exhaustion.
AFP has also reported that LA police confirmed that officers had been called out to a ‘disturbance’ at the rapper’s Los Angeles home, which turned out to be a “medical emergency”.
A source also told TMZ, that Kanye apparently cancelled the tour because he was exhausted.
“He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line,” the source was quoted as saying.
Fans across the globe have inundated social media with mixed emotions over Kanye’s outburst, as well as the cancellation of the tour.
Some fans have labelled the rapper’s behaviour as “crazy,” while others accused him of “losing the plot”.
