According to Woman’s Day, 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.
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.
‘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.
