Texas-born and bred rapper Travis Scott will reportedly no longer be performing at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, according to a report from Variety.

The reports say the artist no longer being part of the festival's lineup is due to the controversy from the Astroworld Music Festival.

These tragic events from Astroworld left 10 people dead and around 300 more injured, and the artist has since faced a lot of lawsuits from the victims' families.

However, his management is yet to formally confirm the news of him being pulled from the Coachella line despite the festival issuing a statement alluding to the removal, according to floating rumors.

Back in November, reports surfaced of a petition to have Scott removed from the festival had been launched, and a total of 62,639 signatures have been collected on December 18, 2021.

The managing agency behind Coachella flat out ignored this petition for over a month, and they did not even respond to queries on whether the artist will be benched from performing at next year's event.

The news of Scott no longer performing at Coachella 2022 was first reported by KSEQ, and they sourced reports from the city of Indio and the Community Services Manager Jim Curtis.

The Variety report says that the company behind Coachella informed Scott's management about this decision.

The company even agreed to pay out 25% of what would have been his total earnings for dropping the rapper out of their line.
