Kanye has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.
According to law enforcement sources ... cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He wasn't at his home at the time. We're told paramedics also responded and ended up transporting Kanye to the hospital by ambulance.
Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when someone -- possibly the physician -- decided he needed to be admitted.
The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kanye abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, and launching into a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyonce.

Kanye West's personal physician is the one who called 911, warning the dispatcher Kanye was not violent but would become violent when police arrived to help him.
Law enforcement sources tell us, the call came in as a male with mental illness. Dr. Michael Farzam said his patient's name was "Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5'8", 175 lbs ... suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration."
According to the police report the doctor told cops he had placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold and wanted him taken to UCLA Medical Center. We're told there's an issue over whether the doctor actually placed Kanye on a 5150.
The report goes on to say Dr. Farzam told police Kanye had attempted to assault a staff member at the gym.
We're told Kanye was handcuffed to the stretcher because it's protocol when cops are told someone is on a 5150 hold.
Sometimes there's airplanes, I can't jump out. Sometimes there's bullsh!t, that don't work now. We all got out stories, but please tell me... what there's to complain about.
