Kanye West was transported to a Los Angeles area hospital on Monday, a law enforcement source tells our sister station KABC-TV.

The rapper's admission comes after days of controversy for the star.

Earlier today, West abruptly canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, which was scheduled to come to Houston in December.

A representative for West said the remaining dates of the tour have been cancelled, but did not give a reason why.

Saturday's truncated show became a hot topic on social platforms, as amateur videos circulated of a 10-minute tirade by West about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.

The LAPD and fire department responded to an address on N. Laurel Avenue at about 1:20 p.m. on a disturbance call that police say then became a "medical emergency."

So far, there was no word on West's condition.
