A Ye representative, who changed his name from Kanye West, confirmed the information in The Blast’s article in an email to the Associated Press. She offered no additional comment.
Ye has not yet been confirmed as anyone to appear on the show, which has announced acts like Billie Eilish, BTS, Lil’ Nas X and Olivia Rodrigo. Yes’s album “Donda” is nominated for album of the year. Recording Academy officials have not responded to multiple requests for comment.

The decision was reportedly made in response to his “worrying online behavior.”
Trevor Noah, who hosts the Grammy Awards, called Ye’s treatment of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian “more and more bellicose” on The Daily Show last week.
“What we see here is one of the most powerful, one of the richest women in the world who can’t get her ex to stop texting her, stop chasing her, stop bothering her,” Noah said.
