Kanye West is demanding that Billie Eilish publicly apologize to Travis Scott after appearing to diss him during a recent concert — Ye is even threatening to pull out of his headlining Coachella gig if she doesn't issue a mea culpa.
Billie, who is also set to headline Coachella this year, isn't playing ball, insisting she did nothing wrong.
On Feb. 5, the "Happier Than Ever" singer went viral for stopping her show mid-concert after seeing a fan struggling to catch their breath. The 20-year-old summoned her team to get the fan an inhaler, an act of goodwill that was universally praised.
"We're taking care of our people, hold on. I wait for people to be OK until I keep going," she said, which many felt was a swipe at Travis.
On Feb. 10, Kanye felt like Billie crossed a line and vented in an all-caps Instagram message.
"COME ON BILLIE WE LOVE YOU PLEASE APOLOGIZE TO TRAV AND TO THE FAMILIES OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES," he wrote. "NO ONE INTENDED THIS TO HAPPEN."
Back in November, 10 people died at Travis' Astroworld concert in Houston due to a horrific crowd surge. Graphic videos soon followed, some showing medics trying to revive victims. Other videos included ambulances (with emergency lights on) struggling to fight through the massive crowd, and further clips featured concertgoers begging Travis' team to stop the show amid the chaos.
Kanye insisted in his new post that Travis was unaware of the tragedy unfolding in the crowd that evening.
"TRAV DIDN'T HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING WHEN HE WAS ON STAGE AND WAS VERY HURT BY WHAT HAPPENED," Ye wrote before his ultimatum. "AND YES TRAV WILL BE WITH ME AT COACHELLA BUT NOW I NEED BILLIE TO APOLOGIZE BEFORE I PERFORM."
Upon seeing the Instagram post, Billie stood her ground.
"I literally never said a thing about travis," she commented, indicating she was "just helping a fan."
