Kanye West spotted after dropping out of Coachella


Kanye West looked grim while out and about in Beverly Hills on Monday, just hours after news broke that he was no longer headlining Coachella.

The “Donda” rapper, 44, paid a visit to a construction site, keeping a low profile in a black hoodie, dark jeans and black boots.

West kept his head down while glued to his phone, then joined two other men in a chat.

Page Six reported earlier Monday that West had abruptly dropped out of the upcoming one-day music festival in Indio, Calif.

Sources tell us he was seeking professional treatment following his social media tirades against ex-wife Kim Kardashian, 41, and her new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, 28.

“Kanye has retired from Coachella for good. He has not rehearsed or mounted production,” an industry insider said.

“Travis Scott was supposed to join him on stage. Now it would be next to impossible for him to pull himself together.

The insider noted that The Weeknd could replace West as the headliner.

“Kanye is backing down because he wants to stay out of the public eye after all the drama with Kim and Pete,” the source added. “He wants to get help.”

As previously reported, many fans at this year’s Coachella festival weren’t too keen on having West as the headliner.

A person using the pseudonym “Kim Pete” started a Change.org petition last month telling organizers they should be “ashamed of themselves” for giving West “more platform.”

“Kanye is a selfish, narcissistic bully who thinks his money and fame give him a free pass to abuse, threaten, shame and defame others,” wrote one of the nearly 50,000 petitioners. “Why he was allowed to get away with this appalling behavior for so long is a joke.”

Coachella will take place over two weekends from April 5-24, featuring artists including Billie Eilish, Harry Styles and Swedish House Mafia.
