Kanye West will not be headlining Coachella as announced. This is according to a source close to the artist. CNN gave details on Monday.
Ye had been set to be one of the headliners of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival along with Billie Eilish and Harry Styles. The source told CNN that West did not want to take the stage amid his divorce battle with Kim Kardashian and in the wake of his one-sided feud with “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
In the past several weeks West has taken to social media to air his grievances about co-parenting issues with Kardashian.
He was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours for posting a racial slur aimed at Noah after the late-night host voiced his concern about West’s feuding with Kardashian.
A performance by Ye at Sunday’s Grammy Awards was also subsequently canceled, according to three sources close to the artists, citing his “online behavior.”
Ye did not attend the event but won two Grammys.
