Kanye West/Jim Jones

Kanye Checked In Under The Name “Jim Jones” And Tried To Assault Gym Staff Member

(AllHipHop News) Details are emerging about Kanye West’s mental condition, just hours after he was checked into a local Los Angeles hospital, after canceling the remaining dates of his “Saint Pablo” tour.

According to TMZ.com, Kanye’s personal physician called 911, and told dispatchers that Kanye could become violent when the police arrived.

Kanye’s phsycian Dr. Michael Farzam told police his patient’s name was “Jim Jones,” which is the name of another famous rapper.

According to reports, Dr. Farzam told responding officers that Kanye was suffering from “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”

The 39-year-old rap star was handcuffed to a stretcher (its protocol for 5150 calls) and taken to UCLA Medical Center.

The news of Kanye’s condition and the details surrounding his hospitalization comes just one day after the rapper cancelled the remaining 21 tour dates of his “Saint Pablo” tour on Monday.

The tour was halted after a series of disastrous shows the prior weekend.
