Kanye West was reportedly not placed on psychiatric hold before being hospitalised for exhaustion earlier this week.

The rapper, who is being treated for exhaustion at UCLA Medical Centre, is said to have “decided to seek medical help” on the advice of his doctor, and was not committed against his will.

“There was a small altercation at the gym but he was deemed medically stable and decided to seek medical help at his doctor’s request,” a source told PEOPLE magazine.

The report goes on to say that Kanye was ‘not restrained’ and ‘went freely’ hours after cancelling his Saint Pablo tour.

The source said: “He is exhausted and currently dealing with sleep deprivation. He went to the hospital at will under the advice of his physician. He’s fine.”

Meanwhile, his wife Kim Kardashian has been “amazing” and given her support days after the star was rushed to hospital .

The rapper was given a psychiatric evaluation after allegedly “acting erratically” at his personal trainer Harley Pasternak’s home.
