Police feared for the safety of Kanye West and others before his hospitalization. In 911 audio obtained by Radar, police advised the rapper’s doctor to keep him away from weapons.

“I’m one of his doctors. I’m just calling from my cell phone,” the doctor told the 911 dispatcher, asking for “police backup.”

When he explained the situation, the operator advised him to “keep an eye on him.”

“Don’t let him get any weapons,” he said. “If anything changes, if he becomes physically combative between now and when the police and paramedics get there, call 911.”

West, 39, was admitted to UCLA Medical Center on Monday, November 21 and placed on a 5150 hold after acting erratic at his trainer Harley Pasternak’s home.

He was released from the hospital a week later on November 30.

“He is out and at home,” a source close to the Kardashian family told Radar. “Kanye is only leaving under the condition he will be strictly monitored by a team of nurses.”

Insiders previously told Radar that West and his wife Kim Kardashian are expected to attend therapy after the meltdown. The medical issue comes only weeks after Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint while in Paris.

“Kim isn’t responding to anyone,” the insider said. "She has gone quiet.”
