Kanye West Rushed To Hospital For An Emergency In Melbourne


Kanye West was reportedly rushed to hospital on Wednesday just hours before he performed in his final Melbourne concert.

The 37-year-old was allegedly taken to Epworth hospital in Richmond where he was given an emergency MRI at around 2pm in the afternoon, according to Woman's Day.

A woman by the name of Loraine Kelly,who accompanied her daughter while she was having her own MRI scan, told the magazine that the Black Skinhead singer had his face partially concealed when he was ushered through the back entrance of the facility by his security team before being stretchered in to the MRI area.

Ms Kelly told Woman's Day that doctors had fears that the rapper had had a seizure or was about to have a seizure.

'Everyone was massively panicked,' the onlooker told the magazine.

'Everyone was moved out of the waiting and consulting rooms.'

Ms Kelly said one of Kanye's security team had her daughter ejected from the room before her scan had been completed.

However, a source told E! Online that Kanye only attended hospital as a precaution.

'[Kanye is] fine and didn’t have a major health scare or seizure,' a source told the network.
 

'He just suffered a migraine and went to the hospital simply as a precaution.'

Despite the alleged health scare the Yeezus rapper, who had been playing basketball earlier that day, reportedly left hospital around 4.30pm before appearing on stage at Rod Laver Arena to perform that night.

Daily Mail Australia has requested comment from the rapper and Epworth hospital.

Kanye and his famous wife's hospital dash created dramatic scenes on Melbourne's roads, an eyewitness told Daily Mail Australia.

'Kim and Kanye were in one car, and a second car with their security team drove behind but slowed down to block any paparazzi or fans from following them,' the eyewitness said.

'Their car was able to get away so that they were not followed to the hospital.'

It was a similarly hectic scene when the car returned to their hotel around 5pm.

'Fans tried to run into the underground car park, but the security team began screaming at them to get out.'

In 2002 the rapper fractured his jaw in a car accident in Los Angeles, MTV reported at the time.

After the drama-filled afternoon and evening, the next morning Kanye and his young family looked fresh-faced as they touched down in Sydney.

Kim stepped off the plane in a business-like outfit of a white shirt and black pencil skirt, meanwhile Kanye disembarked with his adorable one-year-old daughter in his arms.


The super-famous couple were whisked away to the Park Hyatt Hotel, where they were seen on the balcony taking in the iconic view of Sydney Harbour.

No stranger to speaking his mind, the rapper made some controversial comments during his Wednesday night performance.

The Yeezus singer wasn't happy that many of the audience members were sitting down, and told the crowd:

'I can't go on with this song if there's people in here sitting down unless y'all sitting down because y'all handicapped,' he said.

'Unless y'all have handicapped parking?'

The superstar's comments trivialised the experience of people with disabilities, said Matthew Wright, CEO of the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations.

'It reflects perhaps a lack of understanding of the difficulties people with disabilities face in everyday life,' he told Daily Mail Australia.

'If there was a person in the audience with a disability that would have been very embarrassing for them,' he added.


The Gold Digger singer is due to perform at Sydney's Qantas Credit Union Arena on Friday and Saturday night, before heading to Brisbane.
