Ye was originally set to headline both Sundays of Coachella, also declaring that he would bring Travis Scott as a performance guest, but cancelled just weeks before. “For the sake of their kids, Kanye told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,” the source said, mentioning that Ye was “going away to get help.”
Prior to Coachella, the rapper was pulled from the 2022 Grammy Awards for “concerning online behavior,” according to his representative. Despite not appearing at the ceremony, Ye won Best Rap Song (“Jail”) and Best Melodic Rap Performance (“Hurricane.”)
