Teyana Taylor was recently a guest on the hit daytime TV show The Real and during her interview she vividly recounted why she kicked Jeremih off her tour. We have heard from both sides on why the fallout from the tour happened. Teyana says the mistreatment she got while on tour was extreme and that all the paid promo for the tour came from her pocket, Jeremih did not pitch in anything.
“He did little to none like any promo, so it was just like, when we got there and the concerts were sold out and different things like that. It was like when we got there, everything was Jeremih. His name was on everything, like, my name wasn’t even on the ticket.”
“I’m working my behind off and you call me your opener during one of the shows but then go on radio and say, ‘But I got love for her, you know, it’s all love,’ and try to make it seem like you’re taking the high road,” she explained. “It’s like no because if you had love for me, you would have never tried to play me live.”
When it was time to decide whether to end the tour or not, Teyana didn’t hesitate:
“When he said what he said, that’s when I kind of pressed him about it over text. This is when we were in Toronto, so he kind of admitted that he did say it. I was like, ‘You know what? This tour is done.’ He said, ‘Let’s just let it be done.’” She said, “My thing is, if I’m just the opener, I shouldn’t have the power to say that this tour is done. So you already knew what I brought to the table, regardless. It was like, don’t try to play me.”
