August 16, 2018 update: Harlem singer/songwriter Teyana Taylor didn’t drop out of Jeremih’s tour, she replaced him as the headliner and he was removed. Taylor clarified on Twitter when a fan asked her if she was doing a separate tour or replacing Jeremih, to which she responded, “He’s been removed from the tour.”
Read the original story below.
Teyana Taylor surprised everyone yesterday (August 15, 2018) when she announced she was cancelling all of her remaining dates as opener for Jeremih’s “Later that Night Tour.” Within 24 hours of the announcement, Taylor announced her own “KTSE” tour, along with dates.
On Twitter, Taylor said she cancelled the tour because of disrespectful treatment by Jeremih. She wrote, “I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note i will NO longer continue to stay on the #LaterThatNightTour because if I do ima end up knocking this nigga out.”
She added in another tweet that she’ll put on a free concert in remaining cities from Jeremiah’s tour that won’t provide refunds to her fans who’ve already purchased tickets.
While the cancellation was a surprise, the bigger shock for a lot of fans was the fact that Taylor was the show opener with many fans expressing disbelief she was opening for Jeremih and not the reverse. Some noted that at the Atlanta concert, half the audience left after she performed.
Taylor said as much in a Tweet in which she wrote, “@Jeremih Lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving, selish, lame ass nigga! Don’t ever try to play me Petunia! They come to see me then 80% of the room leave after MY SET! work my ass off every city, every night! You’ve done nothing this whole tour but act like a DIVA in ya princess chair”
In an Instagram live video, Taylor accused Jeremih of mistreating opener Dani Leigh, who she said would join the “KTSE” tour.
