A rep for Kanye West and one for Live Nation both confirmed to Rolling Stone that the remaining 21 dates of the Saint Pablo tour are canceled after two controversial California shows. Professional Kanye theorists have been at work since Monday morning's announcement, as no specific reason for the decision has been given.
Complex reported that a TMZ source said, "He's just exhausted. He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line." The source added that being away from his family after his wife, Kim Karadashian West, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris has been taking a toll on him.
Last Thursday, Kanye told the crowd at his San Jose show that he didn't vote in this year's election, but Trump would have gotten his support if he did.
Then on Saturday in Sacramento, West went on a 30-minute rant, where he again stated his support for the president-elect, bashed MTV, and talked about his questionable relationship with Jay-Z and Beyonce.
Snoop Dogg essentially posted live reactions via Instagram during the rant, where he showed his disapproval of Kanye's decision to get into his feelings after performing only a few songs. "I smoke weed, weed don't make you do that," Snoop said.
Talib Kweli, took a more loving tone to tell Kanye in a series of tweets that he should rethink his actions and words.
Forbes has estimated that whatever the reason for the sudden cancellation is, Kanye will be losing about $10 million dollars, since he makes nearly $500,000 a show.
