Kanye West Drops Out of Coachella Headlining Set

Kanye West has pulled out of his headlining set at Coachella this month. TMZ was the first to report the news.

The outlet also reports that in addition to Ye pulling out, Travis Scott, who was scheduled to perform with the rapper, will no longer perform at the festival, either.

This comes after a Change.org petition called for Ye to be removed as a headliner got nearly 50k signatures.

Kanye previously threatened to pull out of Coachella if fellow headliner Billie Eilish did not apologize to Travis Scott following her comments regarding concert safety, which West perceived were targeted at Travis Scott.

The remaining headliners, Billie Eilish, Harry Styles, and Swedish House Mafia are all still slated to perform.
