Kanye West has been hospitalised at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, reports say.

The source said "He's just exhausted. He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line. He's a notorious workaholic ... so balancing both that work — which is extremely important to him — and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out.

"All the time spent away from his family has been a stress on him, as well. They are the most important to him. Obviously he's a professional and wants to give his fans a great experience, and I think his gut was telling him not to extend the tour through the end of the year, but he decided to push through. He doesn't want to give his fans anything less than the best."
