Kanye West threatens to quit Coachella unless Billie Eilish apologises to Travis Scott

Kanye West has demanded Billie Eilish apologise to Travis Scott for comments she made at a concert earlier this week, claiming he'll pull out of performing at Coachella if she doesn't. 

But the 'Bad Guy' hitmaker has clapped back, suggesting West is wrongly accusing her of "dissing" Scott.

In one of his infamous Instagram posts written in all capital letters, West shared an image of a RapSeaTV story with the headline: "Billie Eilish dissed Travis Scott at her concert." 

The post referred to an incident that took place during Eilish's Happier Than Ever tour, when she paused the show to get a fan an inhaler after noticing they were in distress. 

"I wait for people to be okay before I keep going," she told the crowd at the time, eliciting rapturous applause and cheers. 

West evidently believed the headline that framed this as a jab at Scott, who was accused of neglect when 10 people died and many more were injured at his Astroworld festival last year. 

Panicked fans attempted to get the attention of the rapper and the stage crew as the fatal crowd surge began killing and injuring people, and while Scott did pause the show on several occasions, the performance continued for another 45 minutes. 

West claimed he was going to be bringing Scott to his Coachella performance, but would not play the festival unless Eilish owned up to her words. 

"Come on Billie we love you please apologise to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives," he wrote on Instagram. 

"No one intended this to happen Trav didn't have any idea of what was happening when he was on stage and was very hurt by what happened

"And yes Trav will be with me at Coachella but now I need Billie to apologise before I perform." 

But it doesn't look like Billie intends to play ball. 

Eilish responded with the comment: "Literally never said a thing about Travis. Was just helping a fan."

West also took aim at a fan who commented he was "off the meds", likely as a result of his incessant and erratic social media posts - many of which have been attacking his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, and most of which have since been deleted. 

The Grammy-winner posted screenshot of the comment on his Instagram with the caption: "The world is racist sexist homophobic and crazy phobic at our core, it's cheap and dismissive to say I'm off my meds anytime I speak up." 

"Phobia in this sense doesn't mean being afraid of, it means not giving power to lets be more conscious and not write each other off so easily [sic]." 

West, who has 11.2 million Instagram followers, didn't blur the Instagram user's name or profile picture.
