Kanye West was handcuffed to his stretcher when hospitalised, thinking Jay-Z was going to kill him

But he's doing okay now...

After extreme exhaustion, sleep deprivition and typically weird behaviour from Ye, he was restrained and hospitalised for his own well-being and safety. His Pablo tours were cancelled, and everyone has been worried about him.

He was ~apparently~ handcuffed to the stretcher when he checked into UCLA Medical Centre on Monday, but a source told The New York Post that "No one was assaulted. The guy was suffering from sleep deprivation, lucid, very f-ing tired."

As strangely as Kanye usually acts, this incident comes very shortly after his on-stage rant about Jay-Z. But it gets weirder. According to Radar Online, Kanye believes that Jay-Z and DJ Khaled hired hitmen to kill him.

"I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay-Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay-Z, call me! Jay-Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head,” the International Business Times quoted him saying.

But, “He’s going to be fine. He’s doing well. He’s resting. He’s getting along with everyone, all of his caregivers,” a TMZ source has revealed.

Kim had even cancelled her first public appearance (since her robbery in Paris) to be with Kanye, and has since been by his side "day and night.”

“Kim is very focused on him. She doesn’t seem frightened. She went straight into handling mode and is being very strong.” the source continued.

His good friend John Legend has told CBS that he was actually with Kim during the time. He said, "We were with Kim actually, you know, right before all of that. I was concerned by what I saw, so hopefully he's getting some rest and some time to figure things out."

Kris Jenner has also opened up to the public, telling Entertainment Tonight that, "I think he's exhausted. Just really tired. It's a grueling tour."

Hopefully, this all smooths over and Kanye gets the care, help and rest that he needs.
