The Audio Of A Doctor's 911 Call Before Kanye Was Hospitalised Has Been Released
Audio of the 911 call made about Kanye West before he was hospitalised has been released on to the internet.
The 39-year-old rapper was rushed into hospital last week after a 'disturbance call' was made to the emergency services. Kanye's personal physician, Dr Michael Farzam, is reported to be the man who made the call.
In the audio, a man who tells the call handler that he is Kanye's doctor asks for paramedics and police back up. He says: "I think he's definitely going to need to be hospitalised. I wouldn't just do the police by itself."
The dispatcher asks what 'medical condition he's having' before seemingly becoming worried for Kanye's safety as he says: "'Keep an eye on him. Don't let him get any weapons or anything like that.
"If anything changes, if he does become physically combative between now and when police and/or paramedics get there, call us back immediately at 911."
Kanye was taken into UCLA Medical Centre where he spent just over a week before being sent back home. According to TMZ, he will be undergoing further psychological treatment, with a source saying he was 'not out of the woods yet'.
