An eyewitness is reporting that Kanye West had a health scare in Australia today. According to Woman's Day, the rapper was rushed to Melbourne’s Epworth Hospital in Richmond for an emergency MRI. He had one side of his face covered, and was brought in through the back door while surrounded by security.

The witness, who was at the hospital with her daughter, says that "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," the eyewitness told Woman's Day

Kanye, who is currently in Australia for the current leg of his "Yeezus" tour, was eventually released and performed later in the day. His reps and the hospital have not given a comment on the incident as of yet.

UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that Kanye West was suffering from an "intense" migraine, and not a seizure. His entourage rushed him to the emergency room after playing basketball, where doctors determined that his symptoms were not serious.
