Kanye West has pulled out of Coachella.

His representatives have not yet supplied a reason for his withdrawal, nor has the festival commented. West was due to headline the festival on Sunday, April 17 and 24.

At this time, Harry Styles and Billie Eilish are still set to take the stage later this month.

While the reasons remain unclear, West suggested that he would cancel his set if fellow headliner Billie Eilish did not apologize to Travis Scott in February.

West believed that Eilish had insulted Scott—whom West intended to bring out at Coachella—when she paused a show to help a fan not long after the Astroworld tragedy. Eilish said she “literally never said a thing about Travis. I was just helping a fan.”

West ultimately declined to show up to the Grammys last night amid his latest controversy with the Recording Academy, which barred the “Eazy” rapper from performing at the Grammy Awards on Sunday following his latest “concerning online behavior.”

After scoring awards for Best Melodic Rap Performance and Best Rap Song, bringing his total Grammy wins to 24, Kanye tied Jay-Z as the most-awarded rapper in Grammys history.

Page Six reported on Friday that West had told ex-wife Kim Kardashian that he was “going away to get help” and would not be “making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements.”

The news came following his months-long smear campaign against comedian Pete Davidson, who sparked rumors of a romance with Kardashian earlier this year.
