Dispatchers told Kanye West’s doctor to keep all weapons away from the rapper during an incident at his trainer’s home, according to newly released audio of the doctor’s 911 call.
According to TMZ, Farzam placed the call on Monday, November 21, while West was at his personal trainer Harley Pasternak’s home. As previously reported, Yeezy was admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on November 21, after he reportedly started behaving “erratically” while at Pasternak’s residence. The episode came shortly after West cancelled the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour following a bizarre 15-minute rant slamming Hillary Clinton and pals Jay Z and Beyonce at a show in Sacramento.
In the one-minute 24-second clip, published by TMZ on Thursday, December 1, West’s physician, Dr. Michael Farzam, describes the “Famous” rapper’s condition. At the beginning of the call, Farzam identifies himself as one of West’s doctors and requests police backup as well paramedics.
Around the two-minute mark, the 911 dispatcher was heard saying, “Sir, if you can just 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 the police and/or paramedics get there, call us back.”
West was admitted with extreme exhaustion for one week at UCLA and released on Wednesday, November 30, multiple sources confirmed to US Magazine.
The hip-hop star’s wife, Kim Kardashian, has remained by his side throughout his hospitalization. “Kim wouldn’t leave his side except to see the kids,” an insider previously told US Magazine, referring to the couple’s children, North, 3, and Saint, 11 months. “She’s been at the hospital all the time.” Kim has been keeping a very close watch on her husband, and not letting people disturb him. All kinds of people have called and sent flowers, but she’s being very careful about not disturbing him and making sure he rests and recovers.”
