Report: Childish Gambino injures foot during concert in Dallas

Childish Gambino walked off stage Sunday night with a broken foot, just 30 minutes before he was scheduled to finish his set in Dallas, TMZ reported

Fans were confused after the Stone Mountain-born rapper, whose real name is Donald Glover, rushed off stage at American Airlines Center, according to the online media outlet. 

Venue staff told fans, who were still hoping to hear “Redbone” and “3005,” the concert was over shortly after Glover, 34, left the stage, TMZ reported.

It is not exactly clear what led to the foot injury, but concertgoers told TMZ the singer attempted to do splits and hurt himself. It is also unknown how the injury will affect the last four stops of the tour. 

The rapper performed at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth earlier this month, kicking off his “This is America” tour — which Glover has reportedly said will be his last.  

Glover’s Emmy-winning show “Atlanta” was renewed for a third season in June.
