There may be more to Kanye West’s recent breakdown than meets the eye — as a source close to the situation exclusively tells In Touch that the 39-year-old underwent a drug test after he was whisked away in handcuffs.

As it was previously reported, Kanye was taken to the hospital from his trainer’s house after his personal doctor called 911, claiming that the “Jesus Walks” rapper was threatening to attack gym employees.

“[Kanye’s] doctor had no other choice but to call 911 for help because he was refusing to go to the hospital voluntarily. Kanye was having a total psychotic meltdown,” the source tells In Touch, exclusively. “The doctor was asked if Kanye was on drugs, and he responded he didn’t know but wouldn’t be surprised if he was.”

Fortunately, time will eventually provide answers as the source notes, “Medics were able to get a blood sample from Kanye before the cops arrived to assist getting Kanye onto the gurney.”
