Kanye West lately has been getting involved in other individuals’ personal situations and having public fallouts with several celebrities such as Billie Eilish.
Billie Eilish had a concert in Atlanta on February 5, 2022 where she stopped the show to give one of her fans in the crowd an inhaler in which she then stated “she waits for people to be okay to keep going”. Kanye appeared to have taken this statement personally, stating that Billie Eilish dissed Travis Scott in reference to what took place at his Astroworld concert in Houston on November 5, 2021 which resulted in 10 people’s death and 300 injured. Ye had uploaded several images on instagram demanding an apology from Billie Eilish to Travis Scott, or he threatened to drop out of the Coachella lineup.
Kanye West stated “Billie Eilish dissed Travis Scott at her concert after she stopped the show to give her fan an inhaler! ‘I wait for the people to be okay before I keep going.’ Come on Billie, we love you. Please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives. 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 apologize before I perform.”
Billie Eilish helping her fan by providing them an inhaler had nothing to do with the incident which occurred at Travis Scott’s concert in which she responded with “Literally never said a thing about Travis. Was just helping a fan”.
