(Newser) – More disappointment for Kanye West fans: The rapper, after a weird few days in which he said he would have voted for Donald Trump had he actually voted and cut short a gig after ranting about Beyonce and Jay Z, abruptly canceled his Sunday night concert at LA's Forum, reports the Los Angeles Times. Shortly thereafter, West canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour, reports Billboard, which amounts to 21 dates, including a New Year's Eve show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. A Live Nation rep says that ticket buyers will be refunded. Sources tell TMZ that the star is taking a break to deal with some personal issues. Billboard notes that the Sunday concert was supposed to make up for a Nov. 3 concert at the same venue that was cut short after West had problems with his voice.
