A report obtained by the magazine did not state why West was hospitalized, but speculated a seizure was to blame.

An eyewitness told Woman's Day, an Australian publication, that the 37-year-old rapper had half of his face covered as he was escorted into the hospital.

Patients and family members were allegedly rushed out of the hospital's waiting room so West could be treated privately.

"My daughter was having an MRI. Shortly after it began, security burst in a cleared the area," Loraine Terry told Woman's Day. "Everyone was moved out of the waiting and consulting rooms. We were the only ones left apart from doctors and nurses - we couldn't leave as the MRI wasn't finished. Next thing we knew, Kanye was stretchered [sic] in surrounded by security. He had one side of his face covered with something white. We both knew it was him because we had seen in his photo in the paper everyday and we were shocked because it looked so serious."

Terry told the magazine doctors were concerned West either suffered a seizure, or was about to suffer a seizure.

"Everyone was massively panicked. And they were very nervous about making sure the area was completely clear," she said.

West was released from the hospital at 4:30 p.m., and said to be in good condition. He performed later that night, despite his stint in the hospital.
