Singer is removed from tour after insulting the headliner on stage.

Live Nation have issued a statement to Pitchfork in which they claim Jeremih has been removed from PARTYNEXTDOOR’s Summer’s Over Tour lineup following a series of incidents that culminated with the singer calling PARTYNEXTDOOR and his crew “some bitch ass niggas” on stage Saturday.

The events company said they are “left with no other choice” and that ticketholders for the remainder of the tour’s dates can receive a refund, though that will forfeit access to the show.

Reports of infighting have dogged the tour in recent weeks with Jeremih requesting to be made co-headliner. At a date in Houston, the R&B singer was rumored to have sent an imposter to perform in his place. The following night in Dallas he insulted PARTYNEXTDOOR before adding: “Tell him to pay that fake-ass budget they’ve been pressing at night.”

Jeremih released Late Nights: Europe in July, featuring The Game and Wiz Khalifa.
