    Kanye West has abruptly pulled the plug on his Saint Pablo Tour, which had included three stops in New York City and New Jersey next month. 

    A representative for the rapper said Monday the remaining dates of West's current tour have been canceled. No reason was given. 

    The tour, now in California and with dates through Dec. 31, had future stops in Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., among others. 

    West had been scheduled to perform at Barclays Center twice -- on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 -- and at the Prudential Center in Newark Dec. 16. 

    Live Nation tweeted that refunds would be processed automatically and that customers should see the credit in their accounts in five to seven business days.

    The move comes after a complex weekend for the musician, who abruptly ended a concert in Sacramento, California, on Saturday, then canceled a performance Sunday in the Los Angeles area. 

    Saturday's truncated show became a hot topic on social platforms, as amateur videos circulated of a 10-minute tirade by West about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV.
