Kanye Cancels Tour; Surrenders $30mm In Ticket Sales After “Complete Nervous Breakdown”

After epic back-to-back meltdowns at concerts in San Jose and Sacramento, Kanye West has decided to spare his fans from any additional exposure to his rapidly deteriorating mental condition by cancelling all of the remaining 21 dates left on his “Saint Pablo” tour.  According to Bloomberg, Kanye will sacrifice roughly $30mm in ticket sales from the cancellation of the remaining concerts.

The Forum, where Kanye was expected to perform tonight in Los Angeles, was the first to announce the cancellation.

JUST IN: Kanye West concert at @theforum tonight has been canceled just hours before show.

 

That said, the tour, set to conclude Dec. 31, had future stops all across the country, including New York City, Philadelphia, Detroit, Boston and Washington D.C..

The epic rants started a couple of nights ago when Kanye kept cutting off songs to discuss Trump’s victory, admitting that if he had of cared enough to vote he would have voted Trump.

“I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? What I didn’t tell you … If I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump.

Last night’s rant in Sacramento grew even more bizarre with Kanye attacking everyone and everything from Google and Facebook to Jay Z and Beyonce.  Fans grew increasingly hostile after the rapper showed up 1.5 hours late for the concert and then walked off the stage after performing only 3 songs.

“A lot of people here feel like they lost… you know why… because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.”

 

“Jay Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man,”

Even Snoop Dogg was having some difficulty trying to figure out what the hell Kanye has been ranting about.

Meanwhile, Page Six, citing friends close to Kanye, is reporting that the “mad genius” rapper has officially suffered a complete nervous breakdown.  Apparently friends are attributing the mental incapacitation to an exhausting workload though we have our suspicions that Hillary’s loss may have been the “trigger” that set him off.

“There are fears he is having a nervous breakdown. He’s surrounded by all these crazy people, but there’s nobody he listens to or who can rein him in. He’s a mad genius, and he’s spiraling further and further out of control. Basically everything crazy he does is ‘art,’ so he is becoming more and more unpredictable.”

 

Another source explained West is burned out from juggling his fashion line and the tour. “He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both on 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.”

As glorious as it would be for Kanye to simply disappear from public life for a while, something tells us we haven’t seen the end of this meltdown.

Here’s what we wrote on Kanye’s most recent meltdown in Sacramento:

Following last week’s surprise statement that “If I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump” by Kanye West, it appears the celebrities are now turning on one another as the cognitive dissonance bomb of a Trump win ripples through their minds. Billboard reports that Kanye went on another epic (aleit incomprehensible) rant during his Saint Pablo tour stop at Sacramento, that “sometime we be playing the politics too much,” before ending the show after just 3 songs.

Just like last week, Kanye offered praise to President-elect Donald Trump during a nearly 20-minute speech he made addressing real-word and awards-show politics. During his speech, West directly addressed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Beyonce.

“It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world,” West said during the concert, The New York Times reported. “Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in Middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt.”

The concert got off to a rough start when the 39-year-old rapper arrived about an hour-and-a-half late to the stage.

Then as Billboard reports, West’s tirade began:

West’s rant began:

“A lot of people here feel like they lost… you know why… because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.”

And continued by slamming some of his closest performing peers: “Beyonce, I was hurt ‘cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” West told the crowd, referencing the 2016 MTV VMAs.

“Now don’t go trying to diss Beyonce. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F–k winning. F–k looking cool. F–k being cool.”

Jay Z was his next target. “Jay Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man,” West said.

“This Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant [thing] happening. If your old ass keeps following old models, you’ll be Hillary Clinton.”

West railed on President Obama, saying he couldn’t make America great again “because he couldn’t be him to be who he was.”

“Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn’t allowed to do this” West said, “and still win. He had to be perfect. But being perfect don’t always change” things.

Toward the end of the show, West said he wasn’t going to “say things the perfect way, the right way.”

“Right now, press, get ready to write your passive aggressive, LeBron James racist comments, Season 4 racist comments. Get ready to have a field day, press, get ready, get ready, because the show’s over,” the rapper said before walking off stage.
