Rapper Kanye West was released from hospital on Wednesday, media outlets citing unidentified sources said, more than a week after he was admitted for exhaustion amid a "spiritual crisis".

CNN and the Los Angeles Times said West left the UCLA Medical Center after he was observed and treated for exhaustion.

People Magazine quoted an unidentified source as saying West is "home, getting some rest".

Representatives for West could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment on West's health status or hospital release.

The "Jesus Walks" rapper, 39, was taken to the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at the University of California, Los Angeles, last week after police responded to a call for help, several media outlets reported.

Sources close to the rapper told People Magazine, he was exhausted from a "spiritual crisis".
