Troubled musician Kanye West was involuntarily committed to a mental ward at a local hospital on Monday.
According to gossip tabloid TMZ.com, West was being evaluated by a doctor for severe sleep deprivation when the doctor ordered him committed for a psychiatric evaluation.
The tabloid reports West did not want to be go voluntarily, so paramedics and LAPD officers physically restrained him and transported him to the psychiatric ward at UCLA Medical Center by ambulance.
California's psychiatric hold allows doctors to hold patients who are in crisis for 72 hours or more if a judge signs an order extending his stay.
West was admitted to the hospital around 4:20 p.m. EST -- just hours after he canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour.
