Australian news reports had suggested that the star's emergency admission to Epworth Hospital in Richmond, Melbourne on Wednesday, Sept. 10 had potentially been quite serious. West was reportedly admitted to the hospital around 2:30 p.m. after suffering a migraine while playing basketball, and was given an urgent MRI scan.

Woman's Day magazine quoted the mom of a fellow hospital patient, Lorraine Terry, who claimed doctors feared West, 37, had suffered a seizure.

But a source told Us Weekly that Kim Kardashian's husband is doing fine, and his brief hospitalization was never a grave concern.

"Kanye just had a headache and wanted to be extra clear for his show," the source said. "It wasn't seizures or anything like that."

After a checkup, West left the hospital and, recovering swiftly, was back on stage a few hours later, for his Yeezus show date at the Rod Laver Arena.

West, who is in Australia with wife Kardashian and daughter North West, plays two dates in Sydney later this week and finishes his tour in Brisbane on Monday, Sept. 15.
