THE WEEKND DEMANDS KANYE WEST’S COACHELLA PAYCHECK + THREATENS TO PULL OUT

The Weeknd wants his bag. The Toronto star has reportedly demanded the same payment Kanye West was going to get for performing at Coachella.

Festival organizers allegedly tried to stiff Abel after he stepped in to replace Kanye West as Sunday’s headliner at the festival this month. Page Six reports the singer threatened to pull out if he wasn’t paid the same money as Mr. West, who was set to rake in $8 million plus a $500,000 production fee.

The outlet published a quote from their source, who said they were going to pay the “Blinding Lights” star less dough and keep the rest of the money for themselves. The source says…

“The Weeknd came in at short notice to take Kanye’s top spot. But Phil Anschutz [who owns the Coachella Festival through AEG Live] wanted to hold on to Kanye’s money and pay The Weeknd far less, just a few million. The festival would pocket the rest.”

Anschutz’s company, Goldenvoice, did reportedly cave in and agree to give The Weeknd the full eight million. The Weeknd hasn’t publicly spoken out about the matter, but it would be understandable if he felt a little slighted by the whole ordeal.

Until the next time it drips…
