Teyana Taylor: I Did All the Promotion for My Joint Tour With Jeremih

Without specifically mentioning the real cause of their rift, the songstress and model claims her former touring partner tried to pass off her work as his own.

Teyana Taylor abandoned her tour with with fellow singer Jeremih last month after he reportedly started taking credit for her promotional work.

The “No Manners” singer and Jeremih had teamed up on the road for the “Later That Night Tour”, but just days into the run of shows, she abruptly announced she was no longer willing to put up with the alleged disrespect and mistreatment she had experienced, and declared she was pulling out of the remaining concerts.

She then set about planning her own gigs before it was revealed that she would be taking over as the headliner of the “Later That Night Tour”, which was renamed after her recent “K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy)” album, and would no longer feature Jeremih.

Teyana did not comment on what specifically caused the rift between the singers, but now she claims she did all of the promotion for the concerts and Jeremih tried to pass off her work as his own.

“We were both on tour together and I was doing everything, the promotion – I do my own promo videos, like I just took it very serious and I was very, very excited about it,” she said on U.S. chat show “The Real“. “And he did little to none, any promo, so it was just like, when we got there and the concerts were sold out and different things like that… everything was Jeremih, his name was on everything… My name wasn’t even on the ticket.”

Teyana also was upset with Jeremih for trying to diminish her role in the tour.

My thing is, if I’m just the opener, I shouldn’t have the power to say that this tour is done,” she added. “So you already knew what I brought to the table, regardless. It was like, ‘Don’t try to play me.’ ”
