Kanye West may not be going west this April. The 44-year-old rapper, who recently applied to be called Ye, refuses to perform at Coachella unless fellow headliner Billie Eilish, 20, apologizes for comments she made about security during a February 5 concert at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena.
West took to Instagram to posted his complaints against the Grammy winner, who stopped performing on the second night of his “Happier Than Ever” world tour, finding inhaler for a troubled fan in the audience.
Do you need an inhaler? Who needs it?” Eilish said, pointing into the crowd, according to. “Do we have an inhaler? Can we just grab one? Guys, give it some time. Don’t crowd … We’re taking care of our people, hold on. I wait for people to be OK until I keep going.” Although he did not mention Travis Scott by name, West took Eilish’s comments as a direct insult after november’s Astroworld Festival tragedy killed 10 fans and injured countless more.

Kanye West “Come on Billie We Love You”
“Come on Billie we love you,” Ye wrote in all-caps in his post, which was accompanied by a snapshot of the headline from RapSeaTV reporting of the alleged “diss” from Eilish. “Please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives.”
Kanye West continued:
“No one wanted this to happen.” “Trav had no idea what was going on when he was on stage, and he was very hurt by what happened.”
Ye also seemed to hint that Scott, 30, would join him at the festival, despite being dropped from the cast following a petition by change.org that garnered more than 60,000 signatures last December.
