The Weeknd is no longer joining Rihanna on her ANTI tour in Europe. The rumor has been confirmed by reps for both artists who forwarded a statement by Live Nation that read, "Due to some unforeseen changes with upcoming projects, The Weeknd will no longer be joining Rihanna on her upcoming international Anti World Tour." Previously, the Weeknd did hint that another project could be coming soon. Earlier this month, he tweeted, “chapter done soon. Just let these pages flip.”

Following some production delays, Rihanna officially kicked off her tour in Florida before making a huge stop in Miami where she brought out "Work" collaborator Drake to perform their unstoppable, chart-topping hit. The two even took time during the tour to stop by a hospital to make a young cancer patient's day. Earlier this week, the Weeknd celebrated the five-year anniversary of his debut project, House of Balloons. You can check out the rest of Rihanna's tour dates featuring Travi$ Scott in North America and Big Sean on her upcoming European run here.
