According to a Variety reportKanye West has pulled out as a performer at the upcoming Coachella music and arts festival. 

The rapper is scheduled as a headliner and was set to close out the April 17th and 24th Sunday shows. Artists Doja CatAri Lennox and many others are also slated to perform both Sundays, and rapper Travis Scott was recently rumored to join Ye’s performance. It doesn’t seem like that will actually happen either, says Variety

As of now, the reason for Ye’s cancellation is unknown.

The news comes a few days after Page Six reported that Ye has agreed to “stop harassing” his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and boyfriend Pete Davidson and that due to his recent social media public outbursts, he is “going away to get help.” 

“For the sake of the kids, Kanye has told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,” a source told Page Six.

When the recent news broke that Kim Kardashian was legally declared single, a rep for Kanye said, “At this time, Ye is committed to a healthy co-parenting relationship with Kim and is focused on raising their beautiful children.”
