Future, are you in your bag sir? Hmph. Find out why the petty rapper (possibly) canceled his pre-Grammy performance, plus flicks from the Grammys afterparties inside…
Future. Future. Future. You still in your feelings, bruh? Sure seems like it. Let that hurt go, beloved.
Word on the curb is that the "Dirty Sprite" rapper canceled a performance at Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammys party at the last minute. Well all know copping an invite to the gala is a huge deal as everyone in the music industry wants to be in the THAT mix.
Not only did he get an invite, the ATL rapper nabbed a performance at the soiree, but decided NOT to show. Reason? That’s unclear. BUT, we do know his ex-son’s mother Ciara and her Super Bowl winning husband Russell Wilson attened the event. See the flicks of the gorgeous couple HERE.
Coincidence? You decide. Some sources claim the reason he bailed is because the promoters were being "messy" by inviting the Wilsons. Meanwhile, other sources claim Future was over an hour behind schedule that day and that’s why he didn’t show up.
Eyewitnesses at Clive’s Beverly Hilton bash Saturday night — which was a who’s who of Hollywood event ahead of Sunday’s award show — confirm Future was booked to perform, but hightailed it when his team realized his ex-fiancee and her new hubby were in the front row.
Our sources — who were present during the exchange — say someone in Future’s camp accused the event organizers of being "messy" by having Ciara and Russ there, and said their guy wouldn’t perform. We’re told Future was briefed about it outside, and then dipped.
HollywoodLife first reported Future’s departure. Now, there’s another side to this story — sources close to Future tell us he didn’t bail because of Ciara or RW.
Our Future sources say the show was behind schedule by nearly an hour, and he and his team were instructed to shorten his performance significantly, which, we’re told, Future wasn’t down with. We’re told he had no idea Ciara or Russ was there.
By the way, Future copped the Best Rap Performance award that she shared with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and James Black for "King’s Dead." It was actually a tie in that category with Anderson .Paak also winning.
