Here Is Why Kanye West Was Hospitalized

Kanye West 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 was at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home at the time and was acting “erratically.” A dispatcher characterized the situation as a “psychiatric emergency.” We’re told paramedics also responded to and ended up transporting Kanye to the hospital by ambulance.

We’re told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer … but still resistant to going to the hospital. We’re told everyone — his management and law enforcement — convinced him it was best he go. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital … as standard protocol.

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 Beyoncé.

Metuh Hospitalized After Vomitting, Case Adjourned

Spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, has been admitted at the National Hospital after throwing up.

Metuh had been scheduled to appear before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja for the continuation of his trial for money laundering.

However, his counsel, Emeka Etiaba, told the court that the PDP spokesperson was ill and sought the adjournment of the trial.

Consequently, the judge adjourned the case to May 23.

Online newspaper, The Cable, reported that the PDP spokesperson vomited repeatedly on his way to court. It quoted a source as saying his condition was serious.

Metuh had been taken to the National Hospital late April after he fell at PDP secretariat in Abuja.

He had been about to take his seat for a meeting of the National Working Committee of the Party when he slipped.

He had complained of serious back ache before the incident occurred.

Woman Hospitalized For 4 Days After Wearing Skinny Jeans & Squatting

Associated Press reports a woman spent four days in a hospital with muscle damage after squatting repeatedly for hours while wearing skinny jeans. This is completely horrifying.

The 35-year-old woman (whose name has not been released) was helping a friend move and spent several hours squatting while she cleaned out cabinets. She said her legs began to feel numb. Then while she was walking home she fell and could not get up from the ground. She was stranded for hours before she managed to get help and get to a hospital.

 At the hospital, where medical staff had to cut her out of her jeans, she was diagnosed with muscle damage, swelling, and nerve blockage, all linked back to squatting in the tight jeans for too long.

Dr. Thomas Kimber of the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia where the woman was treated told reporters in an email he was surprised by the severe damage to her muscles and nerves.

“I think it’s the non-stretchy nature of jeans that might be the problem,” Dr. Kimber explained. With a stretchier fabric, her nerves and muscles might not have been squeezed as hard. He advised the patient to avoid squatting if she wears skinny jeans again but is there even a possibility that she might? If I was in a hospital for four days because of a pair of pants I would burn them and every pair that reminded me of them.
