Ye, also known as Kanye West, will not perform at the 2022 Grammy Awards, his representatives have confirmed and multiple media outlets are reporting.
News of the change was first reported by Blast late Friday.
The rapper’s representatives said they were called Friday about the artist’s removal from the program citing his “concerning online behavior,” Variety reported.
Representatives of the Recording Academy and CBS did not respond to Variety’s request for comments.
Ye was not among the first list of performers released by the academy earlier this week, but Variety said that it may have been a planned performance.
Rapper The Game told Rolling Stone that he’s not surprised.
Ye is up for five 2022 Grammy awards.
