Kanye West has been hospitalized in Los Angeles and placed under a psychiatric evaluation at the UCLA Medical Center. Police officers are reported to have answered a call for a welfare check involving rapper Kanye West around 1:20 this afternoon.

Has Kanye West lost it?

EMTs who also responded to the call say West became argumentative and had to be restrained while transporting the "Gold Digger" hitmaker Kanye West via ambulance not long after arriving on the scene after it was determined that West needed to be evaluated professionally.

But, not before things got a bit hairy for Kanye. West has been having a few rough days of late, and after his latest rant directed at Beyonce and Jay-Z fans were angry, booed Kanye, and left the concert venue early. It was also decided by West to cancel a few of his upcoming shows so he could get some much needed rest.

Those close to Kanye revealed that he was seeing his medical doctor for sleep deprivation. His doctor then became concerned about West and decided it was in his best interest to be admitted to the hospital for a few days.

The diagnosis did not fare well with West, who made it very clear that he was not interested in a hospital stay. Police officers reveal that Kanye called so the paramedics could transport him safely.

How will Kim Kardashian deal with Kanye?

At this time there are no further details on Kanye's hospitalization and psych evaluation and the Kardashian/Jenner family to date has remained radio silent, so far on the matter.

It is also unknown as to whether or not Kim Kardashian West was with her husband at the time of his restraint, or just exactly why the doctor thought that West may have posed a health and/or safety danger to himself, or perhaps Kim and the couple's two children, North and Saint.

Are you shocked to hear about Kanye West's psychiatric evaluation hold, or has this situation actually been a long time in the making?

Do you believe Kris Jenner will take this opportunity to film for the family reality series in hopes of cashing in on both dollars and television viewers?
