    Kanye West accepts the video vanguard award at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015, in Los Angeles.

    Rapper Kanye West has been released from the hospital following a more than week-long stay, E! News confirmed Wednesday.

    He was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital Nov. 21 for exhaustion.

    West was under observation at a Los Angeles hospital after he abruptly canceled the remaining dates of his national tour.

    The admission followed a week of bizarre incidents during which the provocative rapper publicly railed against fellow music stars Beyoncé and Jay Z and retroactively endorsed President-elect Donald Trump.

    It's hardly the first time West has found himself in hot water for combative, self-aggrandizing behavior.

    The artist known for hits such as "Gold Digger" and "Jesus Walks" once famously interrupted Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards, insisting that her award should have gone to Beyoncé. Last year, he declared that he would run for president in 2020.
