Kanye West Is Reportedly Pulling Out Of Coachella Just Days Before The Event
Kanye West was slated to headline Coachella alongside Harry Styles and Billie Eilish this year, but he pulled out at the last minute. Travis Scott was also slated to appear as a surprise guest during West’s set, marking his first public appearance since the Astroworld disaster.
If Billie Eilish Was Still Permitted To Perform At Coachella, The Rapper Vowed To Pull Out.
West did not give a reason for his decision not to perform at Coachella, but it comes just a month after he threatened to pull out if Eilish is going to perform at the event.
Eilish helped a fan who was having trouble breathing at one of her gigs. Billie ensured they got an inhaler and told the crowd, “We’re taking care of our people, hold on. I wait for people to be OK until I keep going”. That gesture of generosity had been interpreted by West as a dig at Travis Scott. Travis who had kept the Astroworld set continued despite numerous casualties in the crowd.
Kanye’s Instagram Post
West wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. He said, “Come on Billie, we love you. Please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives. No one intended this to happen. Trav didn’t have any idea of what was happening when he was on stage and was very hurt by what happened and yes Trav will be with me at Coachella but now I need Billie to apologize before I perform”.
In a response to West’s Instagram post, Eilish wrote, “Literally never said a thing about Travis. Was just helping a fan”.
