Jeremih has been booted from PARTYNEXTDOOR's Summer's Over Tour following a few headline-grabbing incidents that has made it easy to question whether or not he wanted to be there.

The tour seemed to start out fine, but then has unraveled recently. He reportedly ended his set in Chicago after just three songs. He complained on Twitter about pepper spray "put in the atmosphere" during a show in Dallas. Potentially the most damaging and caused the most heads to turn was when he allegedly sent out a stunt-double to perform for him in Houston. The alleged stunt-double was a person in a hoodie lip-syncing and yelled "let's go" a lot.

After all of this, promoters felt like they had no choice but to drop him from the tour. Live Nation released the following statement about the tour.

"Live Nation's top priority is helping artists and performers create great shows for their fans. With this in mind, we've decided it's best for the Summer's Over Tour to continue without Jeremih, effective immediately. After multiple incidents we are left with no other choice. We do not support these actions or take these actions lightly. Ticket holders may request a full refund at point of purchase, which will forfeit access to the entire show. No partial refunds will be issued."

The tour only has four dates left, tomorrow in Denver, Dec. 9 and 10 in Los Angeles and Dec. 11 in San Francisco, so this isn't that big a deal to the entire tour. However, it could be damaging to Jeremih's career if other artists and promoters decide he is too big a risk to book on tours. If you still want tickets, they can be found here.
