Kanye West was reportedly hospitalized on a psychiatric hold on Monday after canceling his Saint Pablo national concert tour following a week of outbursts against fellow entertainers including Beyonce and Jay Z and a post-election endorsement of President-elect Donald Trump.

Los Angeles police were called to a house on Laurel Avenue at about 1:20 p.m. Monday, where West was reportedly suffering stress and exhaustion, The Associated Press reported, and he was taken by ambulance to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where, police said, he was placed on a psychiatric hold.

West was "acting erratically" at the home of his trainer, Harley Pasternak, when police were called, according to TMZ. The rapper resisted going to the hospital at first, but was convinced to go. Still, he was "handcuffed to a gurney" as "standard protocol," said TMZ.

First responders were told it was a "psychiatric emergency," per a TMZ tape of the call.

After hearing of her husband's situation, Kim Kardashian West flew back to Los Angeles from New York, where she was to attend a charity event honoring her late father, CNN reported.

West's mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, was at the Angel Ball in New York when Extra asked her about West's tour cancellation.

"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," Jenner told Extra.

West raised eyebrows Thursday night for a rant during his concert when he told the audience that he would have voted for Donald Trump, if he had voted, and that black people should stop focusing on racism.

Then at a Saturday show in Sacramento, the entertainer ended his show after few songs and a rant against Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, DJ Khaled, Lebron James, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.

West's concert promoter, Live Nation, then confirmed that the remaining dates on his national tour were cancelled, NBC News reported.

West is famous for his rants and outbursts, including an on-stage interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, and has quit and walked out in the middle of several concerts.

West shocked the crowd at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards by announcing his intentions to run for president in 2020 in a long, rambling and, at times, incoherent acceptance speech.

Twitter users expressed concern for West.
