Kanye West out of Coachella amid reports he’s ‘going away’

Kanye West has disappeared from the Coachella line-up — leaving surprise artist featured Travis Scott without a stage.

His vacancy means that festival organizers must quickly replace the headliner for the two-weekend showcase, on April 15-17 and 22-24 in Indio, Calif.

Sources confirmed to TMZ that West would no longer be part of Coachella 2022 — amid his latest controversy with the Recording Academy, which barred the “Eazy” rapper from performing at the Grammy Awards on Sunday following his latest “concerning online behavior.”

West ultimately declined to show-up to last night’s ceremony despite earning two trophies, Best Rap Song for “Jail” and Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Hurricane.” He was nominated for three other categories, including Album of the Year for his Gospel-inspired 2021 album “Donda.”

Page Six exclusively reported on Friday that West, 44, had told ex-wife Kim Kardashian that he was “going away to get help” and would not be “making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements.”

The news came following his months-long smear campaign against comedian Pete Davidson, 28, who sparked rumors of romance with Kardashian, 41, earlier this year.

The 24-time Grammy winner has made his struggle with public bipolar disorder during the last few years. Meanwhile, the reason for his departure from Coachella was not shared with TMZ, nor have they seen plans for Scott to return to the line-up in another capacity.

The Post has asked reps for the two artists, as well as the festival itself, for comment on the schedule shake-up.
