Singer-songwriter Jeremih reportedly sent a body double to perform in his place in a concert in Houstan.
On Thursday, PartyNextDoor and Jeremih’s “Summer’s Over” tour hit Houston, Texas. However, fans were upset because the “oui” hitmaker allegedly never actually took the stage. According to some concertgoers, Jeremih sent a body double to perform in his place, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Jeremih If you weren’t gonna perform in Houston just say so I’m extremely disappointed in that imposter they brought on stage,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another fan tweeted his disappointment: “People complain about @kanyewest cancelling tours and shows but this b**** @Jeremih sent out a f***ing stunt double in Houston.”
A source told BOSSIP, a website that the musician chose to skip the Thursday show because he had escalating tensions with his tour mate PartyNextDoor.
The R&B singer believes that they should be co-headliners while PND reportedly disagrees with the idea because his name is selling the majority of tickets.
The feud was reportedly part of the reason why Jeremih dropped the mic and stormed off Chicago’s stage on Tuesday, November 29 after yelling out, “They some haters, f*** y’all!”
He later took to Twitter and said that he wasn’t upset with the audience, but rather with the show’s organiser.
“Chicago u know I love y’all ‘, I didn’t say ‘f*** y’all’ I said ‘ah they some hatas! F*** yalll! (to the sound people) that cut off my ears while performing,” he wrote on Twitter.
He continued: “Truth is ‘they’ didnt want me 2 perform tonight.. it sad people will take ur money and blatantly make it seem like I only want to do 2 songs.”
A source told BOSSIP that Jeremih tried to go over his alloted time as the opening act, but PND’s team had the venue’s sound person cut his music.
After his social media was flooded with complaints and accusations that he sent out a body double to perform in Houston, the singer responded with an Instagram post.
