Variety confirmed that the rapper has been removed from the performance lineup for the upcoming festival following the recent Astroworld tragedy at his Houston concert in November, where ten people  reportedly lost their lives amid the crowd rampage.

The decision was made after a Change.org petition was started in the days after the tragedy, demanding his removal from Coachella’s lineup. The petition got over 60,000 signatures.

The publication also reported that the festival informed Scott’s longtime agent, Cara Lewis of the Cara Lewis Group, of its intent to pull the rapper from the bill, which he was to headline, and that it would pay a kill fee for the cancelation, typically 25%. An insider adds that Lewis has been steadfast in trying to keep the slot, which would have marked Scott’s return to the stage after Astroworld, offering to relinquish the performance fee entirely.
