West was admitted to UCLA Medical Center after he manifested erratic behavior, amounting to "mental breakdown." During his hospitalization, the 39-year-old rapper suffered from "temporary psychosis due to dehydration and sleep deprivation."
Some manifestations of his medical condition included having hallucinations and severe paranoia. There was even a point where West refused to let his doctor into his room for fear that he might be harmed. Reports said that the armed robbery in Paris that befell his wife affected him with trauma. He believed that everybody was after him to kill him.
A report from Los Angeles Times provided details about the moment before Kanye West was fetched from their home by the paramedics. A call to 911 was reportedly made by his doctor, who was advised by the dispatcher not to let West arm with weapons. The doctor requested the dispatcher to send the police as the paramedics might not be able to do their task.
The call, which lasted for several minutes, did not mention Kanye West's name nor was there an indication that his voice was recorded, although the concern from people at their home that the rapper needed medical help was apparent. In order to conceal the medical condition of West, the 911-call recording was redacted. West cancelled the rest of his tour prior to his hospitalization.
