Jeremih is heading home. After a series of incidents, Live Nation has removed the R&B singer from the “Summer’s Over” tour with PARTYNEXTDOOR. In a statement released on Sunday morning (Dec. 4), a representative confirmed to Pitchfork that the Chicago crooner will not be performing on the remaining three dates of the North American tour.

We’ve decided it’s best for the Summer’s Over Tour to continue without Jeremih, effective immediately,” says Live Nation in the statement. “After multiple incidents we are left with no other choice. We do not support these actions or take these actions lightly.” Refunds will be issued to those who wanted to see the “Don’t Tell Em” hitmaker live, meaning they will have to forfeit their entry into the enter show.

Issues first arose during the tour’s Chicago stop last week, where Jeremih reportedly slammed his mic down and left the stage after only performing three songs due to technical issues. The problems continued a few nights later in Houston, where fans in attendance claimed Jeremih sent out an imposter to perform as a sign of a protest. The -year-old appeared to confirm the odd move with an Instagram post the following day.

The breaking point happened on Friday night (Dec. 2) in Dallas, when Jeremih dissed PARTYNEXTDOOR on stage and later alleged that pepper spray was put into the smoke machines during his set. “PARTYNEXTDOOR and his crew are some bi**h ass ni**as. Now tell me that. Tell me what I said now?,” said Jeremih. “Y’all better scream for PARTYNEXTDOOR now. Tell him to pay that fake-ass budget they’ve been pressing at night.”

“Live Nation’s top priority is helping artists and performers create great shows for their fans. With this in mind, we’ve decided it’s best for the Summer’s Over Tour to continue without Jeremih, effective immediately. After multiple incidents we are left with no other choice. We do not support these actions or take these actions lightly. Ticketholders may request a full refund at point of purchase, which will forfeit access to the entire show. No partial refunds will be issued.”
