The artist took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to make the announcement. She wrote, “I’ve been extremely mistreated on this tour so on that note i will NO longer continue to stay on the #LaterThatNightTour.”
Taylor, who has a home in Atlanta, later specifically called out her tour mate Jeremih, calling him “lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving selfish, and lame.”
“You’ve done nothing but act a DIVA in ya princess chair,” she added.
In an Instagram Live, which has since been deleted, she accused production of tampering with her lights and sound and even throwing water on the stage so she would slip.
As news spread about Taylor’s departure from the tour, many headed to social media to express their opinions.
Several said they did not know she was on the road with Jeremih. They thought she was the only one on the bill.
Others, who were able to catch her before she withdrew, said many concertgoers missed Jeremih’s performance, because some left the show after Taylor’s set.
This isn’t the first time controversy has surrounded a tour featuring Jeremih. In 2016, he collaborated with PARTYNEXTDOOR for the “Summer’s Over Tour.” He often lashed out on stage, and fans even claimed he used a body double for his Houston performance. He eventually was removed from that tour.
The “Later That Night Tour” launched Aug. 3 in Tampa, Fla. and was set to close Sept. 8 in Portland, Ore. The Atlanta stop took place Aug. 7 at Center Stage.
