Police reportedly responded to a disturbance call at the home of the “Runaway” rapper’s trainer at 1:20 p.m. Monday.

Some reports call it a "medical emergency" and claim the caustic performer "resisted transportation" to the hospital and had to be "handcuffed" to the gurney. Others say he "went freely" and was diagnosed with “severe sleep deprivation."

The hospitalization came as West canceled the remaining dates on his blockbuster “St. Pablo Tour,” including a sold-out gig at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on New Year’s Eve.

His wife, Kim Kardashian, was in New York Monday for what was supposed to be her first public appearance since her robbery ordeal in Paris. She rushed back to the West Coast to be at her husband’s side.

Prior to his hospitalization, he went on an Instagram blitz, posting 99 random images of clothing in four hours. None of the images had captions. 

The 39-year-old's hospitalization comes after a bizarre rant in Sacramento Saturday, where he showed up 90 minutes late and condemned friends Jay Z, Beyonce and Drake.

“Jay Z, call me, you still ain't called me… Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man,” West begged.

He also lashed out at Hillary Clinton, saying: "It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it's a new world. Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in Middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt. Feelings matter, bruh."

He then brought out his friend, fellow rapper Kid Cudi, who just left rehab and the duo hugged on West’s floating stage.

After singing just three songs, he dropped his mic, abruptly ending the show — to the fury of concert-goers who demanded a refund.

West was supposed to perform in L.A. Sunday, which was a makeup date from an earlier cancellation, but he bailed again shortly before the concert was due to start.
